One of major treatments right now is Microdermabrasion. Summer heat leads to sweating, which attracts dirt and grime to your face, especially if you live in a concrete jungle like New York City. This in turn leads to breakouts. Some people are more susceptible than others but we all break out from time to time. According to my friends over at Spa Week Daily suggest that Microdermabrasion is the best treatment to curb those unexpected bumps from taking over our precious faces.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical treatment that generates new skin cells through the use of mineral crystals. Using a machine, usually referred to as a Derma Pod, and a small hand-held tool, micro-crystals gently remove the surface layer of the skin, revealing fresher, younger looking skin. The Derma Pod also lightly vacuums the skin’s surface to stimulate blood flow and help with the skin’s regeneration process. There is no pain or discomfort felt during the microdermabrasion treatment. However, those with sensitive skin may experience a mild burning sensation, resembling a light sunburn, after the treatment is complete.
Your esthetician will examine your skin and decide with treatment is best for you. Microdermabrasion is used to provide treatment for various skin conditions: Acne scarring, Fine lines and wrinkles, Sun-damaged skin, Pigmentation issues, Blackheads, Some stretch marks etc.

I've always wanted to try this but, because I have sensistive skin, I'm afraid that it would leave my skin really red and raw. One day maybe.
My skin is so crazy sensitive I'm afraid this would not work for me but definitely want to try it some day.
Thanks for posting this girll!
I have really, really sensitive skin, too. The results are definitely worth a little discomfort! My face was tender for a day, but I was glowing for weeks. (PS – I like the Skin Spa in Soho.)
I bought a package of 6 treatments for $250 at the Skin Spa in Soho. Best prices in NY. I also get a facial treatment to clear my pores at the same time. I used Retin-A which leaves my skin sensitive and I have no problems with Mircroderm. You can tell them you want a light touch. It's adjustable.
