<br></strong></p><h2 class=”body-h2″><strong>Is microdermabrasion effective when done at home?</strong></h2><p>Yes, but not as effective as it would be in the office. “It tends to be safer for at-home use, but it also may not necessarily deliver the same results that in-office treatments would provide,” Dr. Garshick continues, because it doesn’t go as deep as an in-office one.</p><p>The suction is also much stronger on in-office devices, Dr. Jegasothy says, meaning that you’ll get less exfoliation from the treatment as a whole when done at home.</p><p>Heads up: Microdermabrasion isn’t great for every skin type. For instance, if you have <a href=”https://www.womenshealthmag.com/beauty/a34228113/dermatologist-acne-dry-skincare/” target=”_blank”>acne-prone skin</a> or large pores, it might actually do more harm than good because there’s a chance the crystals can get lodged in your pores and cause you to have breakouts. And if you have very sensitive skin, it’s probably not a good idea, either, but mildly sensitive skin types can tolerate it.
