1. Keep the skin cool and calm-
Avoid anything that raises your body temperature, such as hot showers, sauna, steam rooms and exercise for the first day after treatment.
2. Begin a gentle skincare routine-
This will likely be a combination of hydrating active products (moisturizers) and a serum.
3. Stay hydrated-
The products used during your microdermabrasion will work to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin. Maintain your skin’s plump, fresh and hydrated appearance by ensuring you drink plenty of water after your treatment.
4.Don’t pick at your skin-
It works by removing the outermost layer of the Epidermis (skin) and accelerates skin turn over. So, it’s common to experience some peeling of the skin after microdermabrasion. Avoid picking or peeling the skin.
5. Stay sun safe-
A microdermabrasion removes dead skin, revealing the soft, new skin underneath. This new skin is particularly susceptible to the harmful rays of the sun. For sun safety and protection, as always, continue to apply your SPF 50+ sunscreen every four hours after a microdermabrasion – especially when outside.
