    The professional one is much better.. try it out! Tell the esthetician to put it on a low setting. You can tell her how much power you want

      On the machine I got with the kit, it allows u to control the power. I def feel liek it worked so maybe I will wait it out and see... even thoug I'm positive the professional ones is way better. AND I also got a peel. I feel like it didnt do much though. I want a LAYER of skin to come OFF so I'm freash and glowing ;o)

      Does the microd help minimize pores? I love this stuff, I should take a class just for the fun of it and to learn.

        Where did you get the peel?

        Micro will definitely get that layer of skin off.. you can't go outside (especially if you do it in the summer) bc everything gets hot lol when I first got it done, I went into work right afterwards, and mind you, I work in a hair salon.. OMG. Everytime I walked near the blow dryers, my face would start to burn!!!!!! But that's just the first day lol

          Oops I forgot to answer your question..

          I doesn't really minimize pores. Unfortunately we are born with our skin type so if you have large pores, they'll always be large. Its keeping them under control is the key.. washing your face and getting a facial every couple months to get rid of the blackheads.

              I just had my first microderm appointment on Thursday. I really liked the treatment itself - I'm just not sure if it really did anything. My face did feel clean and I think it felt softer. My esthetician gave me a salic acid to put on before I wash my face (w/ a glycolyic acid cleanser) and she also gave me a moisturizer w/ salic or glycolylic acid. I have a pretty complex skin care routine, so I'm not sure if this micro will do too much. I hope it will though since my wedding is coming up soon!
