Face Value

Micro-dermabrasion is one of the more recent skin-care techniques to have crossed over from Hollywood to the mainstream. So what exactly is micro-dermabrasion and what does it promise particularly for women over 40? Do you need a doctor or is it something you can do yourself?

As an alternative to a dermatologist’s office or with an expensive in-spa professional treatment, there are micro-dermabrasion creams and scrubs you can apply at home. These contain the same crystals you'd find in professional treatments, but many cut out the use of a specialized tool for application. Instead, you use your hands to rub the products into your face, neck or arms, pushing the crystals against your skin so they grab and remove the dead cells of the outer layer of your skin. The benefit is replacing dead, dull skin cells with new, healthy ones.

When looking for a Micro-dermabrasion Home System you’ll want to find a system that includes both a Refiner and Replenisher to achieve the maximum benefits:

Step 1, Refine: Contains aluminum oxide crystals – the same professional-grade, highly refined aluminum oxide crystals that dermatologists use. These crystals are super exfoliates that gently buff away rough, dull, lifeless skin cells that naturally accumulate on the surface of your skin.

Step 2, Replenish: A serum that nourishes the newly revealed healthier younger-looking skin with vitamins, antioxidants and an anti-irritant. It soothes, smoothes and softens the skin.

With a Micro-dermabrasion Home System you'll receive instant results: Fight fine lines, refine pores and achieve beautifully smooth skin – immediately – with a simple, two-step set.

It is a great “at home” alternative for busy women who want to save time and money.
