Well, sort of like my face was being sanded and hoovered at the same time. It’s not painful though, in fact, after a while I had totally switched off. As the microdermabrasion machine (a tube that blasts your face with micro-crystals, then sucks the dead skin away) moved over my face, the sensation was brushing and sucking. That feeling heightened a little on the bonier areas of my face – mainly cheeks, jaw and forehead.
I tried microdermabrasion to get rid of my clogged pores
I’m going to call it and say I’ve tried pretty much every facial treatment going. Largely because I’m curious, but also, it’s good to be able to offer advice to friends on what to try based on their skin concerns (once ‘less rosé’ has been ruled out). I recently tried microdermabrasion – the non-invasive treatment for deep exfoliation. The goal? Improve the sun damage to my skin and relieve a congested buildup of bumps along my jawline.
