You've always been a smart shopper but you're confused about the different home microdermabrasion system brands, Suddenly you see an ad for L'Oreal's home microdermabrasion treatment kit. Does it work?
One online review from a patient who has had several microdermabrasion sessions in a surgery center posted a glowing review of L'Oreal on SmartSkinCare.com. Hot micro-tip: Home microdermabrasion kits can maintain your skin between professional microdermabrasion procedures. The reviewer cautions that she did have a few "whiteheads," but that the L'Oreal home microdermabrasion system gave her the effects of a professional surgical microdermabrasion treatment. Note that with L'Oreal Dermo-Expertise ReFinish Micro-Dermabrasion Kit, you use your fingers to apply the cream.
Be sure to apply the moisturizer and, if you should experience adverse reactions (skin irritation, etc.), stop immediately. After all, you're trying to avoid redness, flaking and itching. Also, consult with your surgeon if you're using any home microdermadrasion system. Many surgeons have a treatment regimen that doesn't require one. L'Oreal's system costs $22, less than Sharper Image or Neutrogena, so be mindful of the saying "you get what you pay for" if you want advanced results. You're a smart shopper, and you are worth it.
Great blog! Thanks. I recently had microdermabrasion done and by accident I stumbled upon www.thepatientsadvantage.com. I used them when looking for a provider.
What I liked the most was that my profile remained anynomyous until I was ready to decide what to do. I received replies from four surgeons that met all the things I was looking for. I liked having that complete control without the sales pressure that some of these places can be known for.
If you are going to go down the cosmetic surgery road...better to be safe than sorry. Check them out.
