When it comes to microdermabrasion, as with anything else, the rumor mill starts to spin and myths will abound. Some people will tell you things that sound too good to be true, and often they are. Others will tell horror stories of awful experiences that, in actuality, were nothing like they were made out to be.
Before jumping into any treatment, you want to know the facts. Today, we’ll be debunking three common myths about microdermabrasion and getting you the actual facts, as well.
1. Here comes the pain
One of the biggest myths about microdermabrasion is that it is very painful and the treatments takes a long time to complete. To set the record straight, an average treatment takes around 30 minutes and tailored to your comfort. Consider this myth debunked in a big way!
2. Do-it-yourself does wonders
This second myth is one that some might argue about. There are many so-called ‘home treatments’ on the market that claim to be as good as professional ones, but it’s just not true. DIY enthusiasts will try to debate this, but professional treatments are almost always better. The home versions might have mild effects on the skin, but only professional treatments can significantly reduce dark spots and fine lines as they are supposed to.
3. There is a magic number
The third myth we’ll tackle today is the one that says a certain number of microdermabrasion treatments is needed to be successful. So, how many are really needed? There are great debates about this and there will be a great variety of answers.
The reality is that there is no set number. Every person’s skin is different. What works for one person in just one or two sessions might take another person several more sessions to achieve over a longer period of time, so don’t be fooled into thinking that a set number will do the trick. Consult a professional and get a proper regimen set up that will work best for you.
These aren’t the only myths out there, so you can expect to find more. Just remember that when you encounter one, you don’t want to blindly believe it. For more trustworthy information or to set up your initial consultation, contact the experts at InVogue Rejuvenation in El Paso today!
