Microdermabrasion at Home or at the Dermatologist?

My face, au natural

As I get older, I’m realizing just how important it is to take care of my skin. It’s not as smooth and dewy as it was in my 20’s, so I’m using the right skin care products, especially moisturizer, and have found that giving myself facials is a must.

The last time I went to get a facial, the esthetician told me that the type of skin I have needs to be exfoliated every other day, if not every day. I’ve been thinking about seeing a dermatologist for microdermabrasion, but a friend just told me today that it can be really harsh on your skin, so I’ve been looking into microdermabrasion at home kits and treatments online from the ShopNBC site. Doing microdermabrasion myself would cost much less than going to a dermatologist, and if you know me, you know how I’m all about DIY!

My friend told me that if I do decide to try microdermabrasion, I should do it on a small portion of my face first to see how my skin will react to it. f all is ok, then it’s fine to do the whole face.

Have you tried microdermabrasion at home or at the dermatologist? Which one would you recommend?
