So what exactly is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is basically an exfoliating treatment that works FAR better than anything you could do yourself at home. At Caci, you lie back on a super comfy (and warm!) treatment table, and after having some very gorgeous Murad skincare products applied to my face- the treatment begins!
They use a very cool machine which blows tiny crystals onto your face, while simultaneously sucking them back off again- these crystals work by exfoliating off all the dead skin. It sounds quite intense- but it's a breeze, and doesn't take longer than 10-15 minutes!
This is hard to explain, but there's a slightly scratchy (but not sore) suction-type pressure...that's not very clear at all, sorry- but it REALLY doesn't hurt. Some people say they experience mild discomfort, but there was none of that for me. I'm also not very brave, so there you go. You'll be FINE (and at Caci, you'll always be in good hands).
How did your skin feel and look afterwards?
One word: SMOOTH. So soft and smooth!!!! Basically, if there was a product I could buy that gave me this kind of effect, I'd buy six. But there is not, so I'll be carrying on with the treatments. My skin had a bit of redness for a couple of hours afterwards, but that was easy to both deal with and cover up. I immediately noticed that my makeup went on so smoothly, and any dry/patchy bits on my skin had ceased to exist- YESSS.
Would you do it again? How much does it cost?
Oh DEFINITELY. If my skin feels and looks this good after just one treatment- consider me a devotee. Currently each session costs $100, with the option of adding in Glycolic (which gets the skin ready for the treatment & exfoliates dead skin cells for extra bright skin) for an extra $28.
If you call Caci Cambridge (only available at this clinic) and mention this post, you can book a microdermabrasion and glycolic treatment for only $78!!!! AMAZING!!!
