Who should not use The Microdermabrasion Tool?

This may cause skin to be too sensitive and use of The Microdermabrasion Tool is not recommended. Consult your doctor or dermatologist if you are unsure that The Microdermabrasion Tool is suitable for your skin.
What happens if I get red marks after a treatment?
Some of our clients have found that if the device is held too long in one spot, or the skin is extra sensitive in that particular area, it could perform dermabrasion. A treatment performed by specialists where deeper layers of skin are removed. To help these areas to heal and regenerate, we would suggest the following:
1. Cleanse the skin after use
2. Keep the are moist to promote healing
3. Avoid sun exposure as new skin is more susceptible to sun damage
When your skin has healed and regenerated & you are comfortable in doing another treatment, we suggest that you do the following:
1. Move down to a lower suction level
2. Make sure you glide The Microdermabrasion Tool over each area just once & do not press down into the skin, rather let the suction pull your skin upwards
3. Hold the skin tight to allow The Microdermabrasion Tool to glide across
4. Keep skin clean, moisturised & protected from the sun
What if no dead skin comes off after a treatment?
All depending on the individual using The Microdermabrasion Tool, not everyone will see the dead skin residue right away. This does not mean that The Microdermabrasion Tool is not fit for you. The amount of residue you see following your treatment is based on your skin type. More oily skin types and individuals residing in humid climates, may not see dead skin residue right away, although the skin softness results will still be noticed.
Do I apply pressure while using?
No hard pressure is needed in most cases, all you need to do in glide The Microdermabrasion Tool over your skin.
What happens if I apply too much pressure?
When too much pressure is applied, The Microdermabrasion Tool may exfoliate beyond the dead skin layer. This may result in slight redness. The vacuum suction of The Microdermabrasion Tool is calibrated perfectly to remove dead skin. Do not apply unnecessary pressure.
Do I need to do anything in between treatments?
Yes, continue with your daily skincare routine whether it be face masking, moisturising, etc. Always remember to moisturise after every microdermabrasion treatment, as you will need the immediate re-hydration for optimal results.

Does The Microdermabrasion Tool remove hair?

Can you apply treatment close to your eyes?
No, only treat the skin on the outskirts of the eye socket. You will still see great results even though you do not directly treat the skin below brown bone or above the eye bone.
What is the difference between The Microdermabrasion Tool, The Clarisonic & scrubs?
The Clarisonic's main function is to cleanse the skin daily, and is a mechanical brush. The Microdermabrasion Tool is a once-to-twice per week microdermabrasion treatment that exfoliates & removes the top layer of dead skin. Both are highly effective cosmetic tools although provide different primary functions. Scrubs will help to exfoliate but does not use vacuum suction technology. Various scrubs include microdermabrasion in their features, although true microdermabrasion uses vacuum suction.
