Having scars, pimple, or acne can be a very distressful experience for anyone. However, with modern technology, there are many methods that can be used to treat such conditions. One of the most effective methods that you can employ is microdermabrasion treatment. Previously, this treatment was just available in salons and spas where you were required to pay a lot of money per session. The machines were also expensive and difficult to get. This situation has since changed; you can now get your own treatment at home using a microdermabrasion kit. With this kit you end up saving a lot of money than if you were to go to a spa or your dermatologist for the treatment. So what is the difference between professional microdermabrasion and using an at home microdermabrasion kit? Find out below.
The functions of the machines
At home microdermabrasion machines have been manufactured to perform only one task and that is microdermabrasion. On the other hand, professional 16inHg microdermabrasion machines are designed for use in salons and in spas. Thereby, they are equipped to perform other auxiliary functions so that the operators can do a whole facial job on their customers. So if you need additional work on your face, it is advisable to visit a spa or salon.
Varying suction power
A microdermabrasion machine is basically a skin vacuum. It is used to suction used crystals and dead skin leaving your skin fresh and new. Professional microdermabrasion kits are more powerful hence pull deeper into the skin than the at home kits. Home machines have a maximum suction power of 16 inHg while the professional machines have a 25 inHg maximum power. For this reason professional microdermabrasion 25 inHg suction machines require professional handling unlike the at home kits which can be operated even by newbies.
Difference in costs
Home machines are cheap to purchase compared to professional machines due to the difference in functions and the suction power. The professional kits cost up to four times the price of the home kits.
If operated well, the results of both machines are very similar. For your home use, go for the cheaper home machine but if you operate a salon or a spa, then the professional machines are best recommended for you. For those with smaller salons and spas, you can also get professional machines but without the additional functions.
