Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular treatments requested of doctors. Unlike chemical peels, dermabrasion, and laser treatment, microdermabrasion is easy, painless, and requires no recovery time. If there is any downside it is simply that you need to have a number of treatments (anywhere from a few to 10 or 15) in order to get the results that you were promised. You should also anticipate going back for follow-up visits every few months if you are using microdermabrasion to treat a superficial skin problem as opposed to a pigment problem or scar.

Because microdermabrasion is so much simpler than most procedures done by a surgeon or dermatologist, cosmetic companies can offer microdermabrasion creams for home use. They offer many of the same results as the procedure done in the doctor's office. The major difference is the lack of a wand to perform the treatment. A doctor will use a specially designed piece of equipment in order to get the maximum benefit from the crystals. At home, you will be limited to your fingers, which can't move as fast, as subtly, or ultimately quite as thoroughly. Also, a doctor can suction your pores in conjunction with the microdermabrasion, which is a highly effective way of getting out anything that is clogging your pores.

That being said, many people are still thrilled with the result of microdermabrasion creams. They find that their skin texture is improved after only one application, and when they follow the instructions for repeated use, it becomes smooth, soft, and evenly toned. A home microdermabrasion treatment is unlikely to be effective in the case of scars and you are not guaranteed to see dramatic results in terms of wrinkles, but there are still unquestionably impressive results for the skin overall.

Microdermabrasion Cream to Fight Blemishes

The judicious use of a home microdermabrasion cream can help keep acne and blemishes at bay. The cause of acne is oil and dirt clogging a pore covered by a thin layer of dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion will clear away these old dead skin cells so that your cleanser is able to get into your pores and clear away anything that would cause blemishes. Afterward, your pores will be visibly smaller, and you shouldn't have as many blackheads or whiteheads.
