Microdermabrasion Creams

What are Microdermabrasion Creams?

Microdermabrasion creams help to remove dead skin and debris on the surface of the skin. These dead skin flakes and particles can interfere with the penetration of skin care products. Using a microdermabrasion cream not only gives an immediately smooth, soft surface which is pleasing to the customer, it also allows the active ingredients in your skin care topicals to penetrate faster and more deeply into the skin. This means that you will get better results from your other skin care products.

Microdermabrasion creams also speed up the exfoliation process, helping to more rapidly fade age spots, blemishes, and scarring.

Microdermabrasion Creams

Microdermabrasion creams are scrubs or facial treatments designed to replicate the results obtained from microdermabrasion treatments in a dermatologist's office. While formulations may differ, they all contain the same crystals used in microdermabrasion machines. These crystals used in microdermabrasion treatments and microdermabrasion cream contain a unique structure that makes them particularly effective at grabbing and removing dead skin from the surface of the skin. Instead of being round, as many beads in normal scrubs are, they are more crystalline in shape. While this does make the product more effective, it also increases the chance of irritation. Here are a few tips that will help you avoid irritation:

  • Rub slowly into the skin in gentle, circular motions. Be particularly careful on the cheeks, as these tend to be more sensitive than the rest of the face. Do not scrub aggressively.
  • Do not apply alpha hydroxy acids or salicylic acid within 12 hours of the treatment.
  • If you notice your skin becoming more sensitive to your other skin care products, you are using the microdermabrasion cream too often. Cut back to only once a week or once every other week.

Choosing a microdermabrasion scrub can be difficult. We have chosen the products above for recommendation for two important reasons: they contain anti-inflammatory ingredients and because they contain more microdermabrasion crystals than other brands we tried, resulting in a more effective scrub.
