20 Years Old and I Recently Had Microdermabrasion Done
Procedure specific satisfaction rating
I looked into having microdermabrasion done at my local plastic surgeon's office. I read that I would need multiple sessions to notice a difference. I decided to give a Med Spa a try --they seem to be on the rise and are typically cheaper than a plastic surgeon's office.
I went to Transformation to a Flawless Me Medical Spa in Bellefonte, PA. I went in with no clear limit, just told Mary Ellen I wanted to help my skin's texture. She suggested a hydrafacial with microdermabrasion. I had heard of the microdermabrasion procedure before, but the hydrafacial was unfamiliar to me.
I got both done at the same time, and since I just walked in without knowing what I was even doing. There was no prep work for the procedure, just went in and let her do the rest. She made me feel really at ease and told me I would be able to see a physical difference in my skin.
The procedure was simple. First, she cleansed my skin like normal to make sure all the excess makeup was off. Microdermabrasion came next, where she used what felt like a tiny but powerful vacuum and went over my whole face. She went slow and didn’t use a lot of pressure, so it did not hurt or bother my skin. The little vacuum was attached to a tube that carried whatever she pulled from my skin into a bottle. When I was done I could literally see what had came out of my skin.
Next for the hydrafacial, she used some type of UV light mask on my skin. It did not burn or feel uncomfortable- I actually think I fell asleep during it LOL. She protected my eyes with goggles and was extremely gentle the entire time. Seriously, she was noturing and amazing with my skin.
I don’t know what kind of magic was in the hydrafacial, but she was right! When I was done I swear the difference was incredible. My skin was not only smooth and soft, but plump like I’ve never seen it before. I can’t even describe how amazing it looked. Makeup went on so smoothly and the difference was unreal.
The cost was tough -- she charged me $250 total for the hydrafacial and microdermabrasion together. Truthfully, that’s a good deal for both but it still hurt spending that much for a 45 minute facial. The result was definitely worth it, my skin was amazing until I started to tan again :( The only restriction post procedure was
I try to keep up with the facials now, maybe every couple of months. They are expensive but so worth it -- and I highly suggest giving it a try. Once you start you can’t stop!
