So this is my second microdermabrasion in my 3rd week. It was a quick 30-minute procedure that I could do right after work before I head home. You get an email about 2 weeks in advance and a text reminder about a week in advance to make sure you can keep your appointment. Otherwise, it is considerate to advise them a change of time or cancel the appointment up to 48hrs in advance.
So, I went in with a face of light makeup (brows, BB cream, a bit of blush and highlighter). She does the basin double cleanse, then the microdermabrasion treatment. This time she kicked it up a notch and I can start to feel it. Especially around my temples, chin and cheek area. It was a little bit more painful than before. After the microderm, she gently cleansed my face from any dead skin particles and applied a quick hydrating mask on my face. She finished my skin off with moisturiser and sunscreen (it was a little too heavy for my skin so I had to wipe the excess off with tissue paper).
So here are some after photos… I’ve been having some hormonal breakouts on my chin lately, hence the angry red spots.
Ok, so the second time around my skin may not show any big improvements, but I can feel that my skin is smoother and the pores on my nose have diminished. The redness on my acne scars are still there and I know that it will need more than 2 microdermabrasion to improve those problematic areas.
However, after 2 days after, I did notice a few of bumps around my hairline, temples and jaw areas. Maybe it was my diet affecting my skin? I usually don’t have many problems around my forehead. These did fade after the 3rd and 4th day.
My next appointment will be another 2 weeks for another microdermabrasion and that would be just the day before my sister’s big day. Hopefully nothing bad happens to my skin because I am her matron of honour!
