If you’ve recently had a microdermabrasion treatment, congratulations! You’ve invested into making your skin healthy, hydrated and happy. You might even be experiencing that post-micro glow we love so much, where the skin is soft to the touch and your makeup-free confidence is at an all time high!
But how do you make sure these incredible benefits continue to last long after your microderm has finished? Keep reading to find out our top tips to care for your skin after microdermabrasion.
Keep the skin cool and calm
The first 24 hours after your microdermabrasion are the most important when it comes to ensuring the best possible results. Avoid anything that raises your body temperature, such as hot showers, sauna, steam rooms and exercise for the first day after treatment. We want to keep your skin cool and calm, so apply your Balense Recovery Cream liberally every four hours.
Begin a gentle skincare routine
Commence a gentle skincare routine with the products recommended to you by your Australian Skin Clinics Dermal technician. This will likely be a combination of hydrating active products such as the Balense Microdermal Gentle Cleanser, ReBalense Moisturiser and a serum.
The products used during your microdermabrasion will work to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin. Maintain your skin’s plump, fresh and hydrated appearance by ensuring you drink plenty of water after your treatment. It’s also recommended that you carry a moisturising spritz in your handbag, so you can continue to rehydrate your skin throughout the day!
Don’t pick at your skin
Both our High Performance and Diamond Microdermabrasions include a customised skin peel that helps to rapidly improve your skin’s texture and tone. It works by removing the outermost layer of the Epidermis (skin) and accelerates skin turn over. So, it’s common to experience some peeling of the skin after microdermabrasion. Avoid picking or peeling the skin. If you had a Jessner peel, do not wet your skin for 12 hours after treatment.
Stay sun safe
A microdermabrasion removes dead skin, revealing the soft, new skin underneath. This new skin is particularly susceptible to the harmful rays of the sun. For sun safety and protection, as always, continue to apply your SPF 50+ sunscreen every four hours after a microdermabrasion – especially when outside. We recommend the Balense UV Defiance SPF 50+ which has a silky, lightweight finish that does not leave residue like traditional sunscreen.
