Considering microdermabrasion? Not sure what the results are? KiSSandMaKeUp offers several services in the comfort and relaxing space of the Spa Room. Microdermabrasion is becoming a popular spa service because of the minimal recovery time and noticeable results. This process is provided by an esthetician to visibly reduce fine lines, dryness, dullness, age spots, and uneven skin tone.
As KiSSandMaKeUp blogger and beauty enthusiast, I was more than excited to try microdermabrasion for the first time so I could share my experience! I am always running out the door. I get blasted with cold air as I head to my car, blast the heat to warm up, cold air when I get to my destination, back in the car, repeat, you probably relate! During Winter, we are constantly drying out our skin with both extremes of temperature which can lead to damaging long-term effects.
Starting the Microdermabrasion
Mary greeted me as I entered the studio. I was excited to learn more about microdermabrasion and how it could help out my dull winter complexion. She told me a little bit about herself and then I got ready for the treatment. Mary took her time examining my skin and let me know some different areas for improvement. I have some dry spots and definitely need to drink more water! It made me feel confident knowing Mary knew exactly how to approach my skin and made me more comfortable as the process continued. After some preparation, Mary gave me a preview of what to expect from the microdermabrasion machine by testing it on my shoulder. It was a very soft, soothing feeling.
How It Really Feels
The process of microdermabrasion gently exfoliates your skin. This non-invasive procedure can visibly brighten skin tone and smooth surface texture. After spending time going over my face and neck with the microdermabrasion device, Mary followed up the procedure with a warm, damp towel which felt absolutely amazing. She then applied a cool, soothing topical mask and offered a hand and arm massage while it took time to work its magic! As someone who types on my laptop every day, I was amazed how much tension this relieved! After clearing off the mask, Mary continued to treat my skin, finishing the spa session with a deep penetrating moisturizer and SPF to continue the hydration process. The SPF is crucial afterwards because of the skin’s sensitivity. I felt so relaxed! My skin was glowing! As someone who often experiences redness, dryness, and a dull complexion, I was amazed. My skin was smooth, soft and absolutely radiant. The dewy sheen made me feel like I had just gotten back from a vacation. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so confident with zero makeup on my face.
Mary took the time to sit with me after and go over skin care. Her biggest tip was to drink more water which I joked is my absolute worst habit. She explained how dead sea mineral treatment that she applied would continue to pull toxins to the surface of my skin so I would see maximum results. By the time I was ready to leave, the pinkness caused by the treatment was completely gone. After I left and got into my car, I was hooked. I always say, the most honest mirror I own is the rear view mirror in my car. On a sunny day, I swear I can see every little imperfection. Not today! My skin looked plump, smooth, hydrated, and absolutely revitalized. It is recommended to get a series of microdermabrasion treatments over time to see the best possible results. I will definitely book my next treatment with Mary.
“I graduated from the International Institute of Cosmetology in 2017. I enjoy being an esthetician because I love helping people feel better about themselves (it literally brings me pure joy!). I love helping people relax. We all deserve self care time and to be pampered. Also, I love educating people on their skin and being able to make a change in someone’s life.” – Mary, Esthetician at KiSSandMaKeUp
