Precautions to Take
Before all microderm treatments, it is recommended that you do not exfoliate with facial scrubs or use cleansers or lotions that contain skin treatments, such as benzoyl peroxide or glycolic acid. After treatment, a gentle cleanser and moisturizer with a physical sunscreen is recommended. Avoidance of the sun for the first day or two afterwards is also important due to a higher skin sensitivity.
Avoid at-Home Treatments
Don't expect to get the same results with a home microdermabrasion kit, which essentially works like a scrub. In fact, you can easily overdo it and irritate or damage your skin.
