Microdermal abrasion treatment at home in 10 easy steps:

  1. Cleanse your face before the session
  2. Set up your machine. You might have to change filters (read the manual corresponding to the machine you own)
  3. Start with a low-medium level
  4. Make sure your skin is tight – you can pull it yourself
  5. Start from the chin and move up, then move back down
  6. Start with a slow pace, no need to hurry
  7. You’ll hear a “vacuuming sound”. That’s ok
  8. Your skin will probably get pink, it’s totally normal
  9. Do the whole face once or twice (you might want to do it once if it’s your first time doing microdermabrasion and if you’re not familiar with the machine and effects)
  10. When you’re finished – turn off the machine and check the filter. You’ll see a lot of exfoliated skin
