How to Use the Microdermabrasion Handset

  1. Prior to using the Microdermabrasion Handset, it is important to thoroughly cleanse the skin, making sure that it is free from all makeup, dirt, and oils. Once the skin is clean, allow it to dry completely before you begin.
  2. Before using the tool on your face, practice on your arm and on your neck. These areas are not as sensitive as the face and will allow you to get used to the motion and the way a treatment is performed.
  3. Use the most sensitive disc first. It is important to see how your skin responds to this disc before moving on to more abrasive discs.
  4. After you have tested the unit on your arm and/or neck and feel ready to move on to your face, use a free hand to pull the skin tight in the treatment area and continue to move the Microdermabrasion Handset in an upward motion across the skin. Do not make more than two passes over one area during the treatment.
  5. Following the treatment, use a toner to neutralize the ph balance in the skin and a recovery moisturizer.
  6. After each use, clean the cap and the disc with rubbing alcohol or antibacterial soap.
  7. Wait 6-7 days between treatments.

    Precautions: The Microdermabrasion Handset should only be used once a week. Microdermabrasion removes the top layer of dead dull skin and your body needs one week to rejuvenate. Be patient. Use it consistently and you will see results. Anyone using chemical peels or products containing acids including hydroxy acids, malic acid, lactic acid, AND/OR retinoids or Retin A ingredients, must not use the Microdermabrasion Handset at the same time! This may cause the skin to be too sensitive and use of the Microdermabrasion Handset is not recommended. Before it is safe to use the Microdermabrasion Handset, you must discontinue use of these products for at least seven days. Consult your doctor or dermatologist if you are unsure that the Microdermabrasion Handset is suitable for your skin.
