What is Microdermabrasion?
It is a skin-exfoliating treatment that removes the outer layer of skin doing away with dull and rough skin cells. Microdermabrasion revitalizes your skin, producing a nice healthy glow. In fact, it that may also improve the condition of acne scars and fine wrinkles.
I’ve always been interested in microdermabrasion and now I had the chance to try it out. I liked the fact that the kit included everything I needed to get started. It came with the Microderm device, charger, 3 diamond tips, tweezers, filters, cleanser, serum, travel bag and of course a handy user guide, which I read from beginning to end.
Although I’ve always wanted a microdermabrasion facial, I was a tad bit apprehensive doing it myself at home. I was concerned that I would use the tool and my skin would become irritated. What if I removed too much skin?… would my skin become raw and bleed. With so many unknowns I made sure that the first time I used it, I didn’t have plans to go anywhere for a few days. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I didn’t want to be out anywhere looking crazy with my skin all jacked up.
The day I decided to try out my new Microderm device, I first used the Riiviva Cleansing Gel to make sure my skin was free of oil, and dirt. Then I dried it thoroughly.
The Riiviva came with three different Diamond tips, so since I hadn’t tried microderm before I opted to start off with the finest tip which is the most gentle and used on lowest suction level.
Using the Riiviva was pretty simple although I think it will take me a few uses before I get the technique down. As I passed over the first section of my face I could instantly see a different, my skin was smoother feeling. It didn’t get red or irritated but it was very dry. After the treatment I made sure to treat my skin with Riiviva’s hydrating serumwhich moisturized and tightened the skin. Then I followed up with an moisturizer that contained sunscreen. Sunscreen is very important in order to protect that fresh new layer skin.
Overall I really loved my results my skin was glowing after just one treatment. I will definitely be making this part of my facial routine.
