Hey, Y’all welcome back to 1998miss.com! I am Alexa Dudley and I am so glad you are here!
Today I am sharing my complete experience getting a microdermabrasion facial! This facial was actually the first facial I have ever had the privilege of getting! It was my “You’re getting gowned” treat from my momma. She’s a regular facial gal and it was so much fun to get my first facial right beside her. It was a great way to celebrate my academic distinction and Christmas break!
What is microdermabrasion facial?
According to Healthline “It is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions.”
So the first thing we have to address is the cost worth it?
This specific facial is quite expensive and the number question asked is always as to if the price is fair…
I would say the price is expensive (can be upwards of $100) but your skin is an investment! It is so good for you to take time to care for it! 20 years from now you will be so glad for all the time you took with the upkeep of your skin. I saw dramatic improvement after just one time which is why I know this to be true. Pro Tip: Check Groupon for a discount, buy a bulk facial pack to save $$$!
Did it hurt?
No! I may just have high pain tolerance but I found the sucking pressure to be relaxing! I loved laying there knowing that the esthetician was sucking out all the debris from my skin! The pressure felt nice and I found it to be a painless experience. Honestly, it shouldn’t hurt at all to be wary of this when getting the facial.
How long was the facial?
It was around an hour because I also did a collagen treatment!
What did it even do?
It cleaned my skin and looking at the gunk at the end I knew every dollar was worth it! I walked out with a beautiful natural glow!
What is it good for?
Many people do these facials to treat wrinkles and some of the side effects I mentioned previously. If you struggle with acne it can also be an effective method for treatment. I wanted to have brighter skin and target the wrinkle lines forming on my forehead so that’s why I did it!
Where did I hear about this facial?
Honestly, it’s being talked about everywhere and if you’re interested in the skin in the least bit you’ve probably heard of this facial! My mom has been getting them for years so I was so happy to finally join in with her!
Would I do it again?
YES, YES, YES! I loved the experience and if you check out the pictures below you’ll see why!
How long do results last?
If you take good care of your skin your treatment will last anywhere from 2-6 months!
Where can you get them done?
A quick google search will lead you in the direction of where you get this treatment done near you! If you are in my area I would suggest Premier Dermatology and if you’re on a budget check out local beauty colleges for a better deal! If you visit places like city point you can request a high-level student to get the same facial but at a lesser cost!
I am excited to have this treatment available to my own clients in the future as I continue pursuing medicine! I hope to work in a hospital as well as have a private practice focusing on helping women in areas like skin. I have a major interest in Dermatology and just this last semester focused on research examining Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa!

All Glory to God!
