Microdermabrasion is a very popular way to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, acne scars, stretch marks and sun damage. The treatment stimulates new collagen growth by removing the outermost layer of skin and is an important part of any skin care regimen.

From your question it's not clear whether you're asking about facial and body scrubs or DIY microdermabrasion machines designed for home use. Both types of home treatment can produce healthy, glowing skin and are available either online or in stores that sell beauty products. There are many excellent products designed for dry skin, sensitive skin, oily skin, acne prone skin, etc.

I can't recommend any specific microdermabrasion brands or home treatments. Whichever treatment you choose, I advise you to start slowly with a relatively mild treatment and allow a few days between treatments for your skin to recover.

Home treatments tend to be milder than professional treatments. For our in-office treatments we typically schedule between six and 10 sessions spaced approximately two weeks apart. This allows the skin layers to recover after each treatment. Most patients schedule another set of treatments within two to three months.

While DIY microdermabrasion treatments tend to be less powerful and less effective than a professional microdermabrasion, they do make a good cost effective solution that can help reduce the number of professional treatments you'll need every year.

A microdermabrasion treatment is a great way to reduce the visible signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and sun damage. DIY microdermabrasion treatments you can perform at home fall into two general categories. There are microdermabrasion scrubs (these include facial scrubs and body scrubs) and there are home microdermabrasion machines, which are essentially less-powerful versions of the in-office machines used by dermatologists and plastic surgeons.

Microdermabrasion scrubs are available in most stores that sell beauty products, but you can also find multiple DIY microdermabrasion recipes online. These DIY recipes use baking soda, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, sea salt and other common ingredients and reportedly have some level of efficacy. I can't personally recommend any specific home beauty products or beauty recipes, but the idea is the same for most of them. They should be applied using repeated circular motions and rinsed with warm water. Repeated use of scrubs not only removes dead skin cells but encourages the growth of collagen, which can give the skin a more youthful appearance.

Home microdermabrasion machines are similar to the professional machines which dermatologists use but typically have smaller motors and less power. Microdermabrasion machines made for home usage don't penetrate as deeply into the dermis as the clinical variety, but are safe and don't need to be operated by a professional.

Keep in mind that at home microdermabrasion treatments don’t provide nearly the same results as an in-office professional treatment, but they can be a great way to extend the amount of time between professional treatments. Always remember to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist for best results and practices.
