Microdermabrasion After Care Advice

I'm a big fan of microdermabrasion and today, whilst at the beauty salon and shop in Merry Hill I picked up an after care leaflet from Skin Base to share with you all the key aftercare points.

It is recommended that your adhere to the following advice after having microdermabrasion treatment. Many deep pore cleansing skin facials also need to follow this after care advise in order to not contradict or irritate the skin/ treatment.

For 12 hours

Do not wear heavy make-up. Mineral make up and natural make up is preferable.

For 24 hours

No swimming, facial waxing or fake tan application.

For 48 hours

No sauna, sun beds or sun exposure. No Botox, collagen injections or dermal fillers.

For 72 hours

Do not use any anti-ageing creams, AHAs, glycolics, retinal or exfoliating products.

At all times

During a course of microdermabrasion SPF 15 minimum must be applied and exposure to UV should be avoided. Regular moisturiser applications are vital to replenish moisture and prevent the skin from becoming dry and peeling.

Be Aware...

If skin feels hot, splash with cold water, pat dry and moisturise regularly with a gentle, hydrating moisturiser. Skin may appear red after treatment, this is perfectly normal and any redness will generally subside within 72 hours.

And those are the quick, easy and simple after care guidelines for microdermabrasion!
