My Microdermabrasion Moment
Now I understand that microdermabrasion is a service, not a product. But thats ok, right?! 😉
Microdermabrasion is not something that I think of as being apart of Raleigh and I know it’s not something that is apart of my life!
But just the other day, when I received a gift certificate to Dermatech I called almost immediately and scheduled an appointment (I mean, it was free, for heaven’s sake!). October 19th became Microdermabrasion Monday!
~ The minute I walked into the office, I knew I was in the right place. It was serene and well-kept.
~ The medical esthetician that I scheduled my appointment with was friendly and professional.
~ The procedure only takes about a half an hour, much shorter that I had expected.
~ The medical esthetician washed my face, applied the exfoliation creme, and moved the microderm tool in a small circular motion all across my face. In only thirty minutes, my face was soft, smooth, and velvety.
~ It is recommended to repeat this procedure every four to six weeks. It is also recommended to use an at home exfoliator each week. To keep away my dry skin, I use the Mary Kay home microderm product once a week and Mary Kay’s TimeWise cleanser that includes gentle exfoliation. (That’s a whole other blog post!)
I am all about saving money, and Raleigh has some great esthetician schools where it is less expensive to keep up soft, velvety skin : Mitchell’s Academy in Cary, Medical Arts School in Raleigh, and the Aveda Institute in Chapel Hill.
The next time I schedule a Microdermabrasion Monday, I think I will schedule it at the Mitchell’s Academy in Cary. I will let you know how it goes!
