Microdermabrasion side effects

Because of the abrasive nature of microdermabrasion, following a treatment you may find your skin looks red and feels more sensitive than usual.

This is normal, and therapists advise staying out of the sun for at least 48 hours so your new skin cells are not exposed. It's also advisable to wear SPF 30 for the days following the treatment, and leave your face make-up free for the first 6 hours following your session.

However, other side effects can include mild redness, bruising, tenderness and dry flaky skin.
