Okay, everyone. It’s time to dispel a few of the worst myths about one of the hottest new trends in spa and beauty treatments: microdermabrasion . Each of these little white lies will have you headed in the wrong direction for your face and for your skin. Don’t listen to just any random advice you hear on this important process! Let’s check out the myths one by one:
1. “Microdermabrasion at home is as good as microdermabrasion from a spa.” Wrong! The process at a spa is done by a professional using such techniques as steam–do you want your living room filled with steam?–and a diamond-encrusted wand. Yes, you heard that right: a diamond-encrusted wand. It sounds a bit like Cinderella and it is. The only problem with this fairy tale is that you can’t do it on your own; you need an expert to do it for you, and trust us, it will help you relax while you’re getting it done!
2. “You can go to absolutely any spa to get it done.” Wrong again. Microdermabrasion requires a trained professional. Spas in NYC, for instance, often have some of the best people for the job, so microdermabrasion in NYC is a very good idea. You just want to make sure that whatever place you go–whether it’s a spa or a doctor’s office or something else–has professionals with good credentials and the “feel” of a real business focused on you and your body. This is not like picking up a prescription or some cold medicine. This is your face and your beauty we’re talking about!
3. “Microdermabrasion isn’t worth it.” Well, you know what the answer is. This one is wrong in that the technology has gotten much cheaper over time. How much does microdermabrasion cost? Not a lot! And microdermabrasion means a lasting change for you and your face, reducing and generally removing fine lines, acne scars, wrinkles, and all those other little problems popping up from time to time or, well, just because we’re all getting older! You don’t need to look your age, and looking younger doesn’t mean you need to spend a ton of money!
That’s about it for our list. Just be sure you trust the experts, and not just friends and strangers who aren’t really in the know. Professional microdermabrasion treatment will definitely leave you looking beautiful and feeling younger.
