Microdermabrasion at Home vs. at the Spa

(0 votes)

There are many microdermabrasion home kits on the market right now, available for purchase in the drug store or any beauty retailer.  Are these kits as effective as having a treatment done professionally?  Home kits are effective if you use them daily or if you use one with a battery-powered scrubber.  You will likely see a more even skin tone and a brighter complexion in two to three weeks.  A home microdermabrasion kit can range in price from $30 to $90.

In the spa, a device exfoliates skin with aluminum-oxide crystals, while simultaneously vacuuming up dead cells and stimulating the small vessels in the skin to produce procollagen, the precursor to collagen.  Even though some home kits use a cream with the same crystals, a spa treatment goes much deeper.  Spa microdermabrasion is the most natural way to evenly and safely exfoliate the skin without chemicals.  At Institut’ DERMed spas, microdermabrasion is one of the most requested procedures, as its results are evident immediately.  Clients walk out of the salon with noticeably smoother, softer skin.

The cost of a professional microdermabrasion treatment can vary but typically falls in the range of $85.
