L'Oreal Micro-Dermabrasion

Has any one tried this new L'Oreal product? I think it's called "Refinish"........if so, how did u like it? Once I get my acne cleared up, I think I'd like to try it to help my scars.....

Re: L'Oreal Micro-Dermabrasion

Never tried it on the local news here we have Wrinkle Free Fridays. They had a local dermatologist and plastic surgeon talking about this product. They said that yes you will seea difference but a small one. It is no where near the strength of the ones you get at the Dr's office. They said that almost all kinds of skin would look better right after but if you want to keep that look than weekly routines are nessary.

Let me know if it works better than they say.

I'm going to buy it this weekend and try it out. There is a $3 coupon off for it at lorealrefinish.com.

What is this good for? What condition would most benefit from this.

Re: L'Oreal Micro-Dermabrasion

No it will not get rid of that. I have one from my accident with a weedeater. The best I could do on my own was apply Mederma. It did not take it away it just made the color of the scar lighter. Lazer treatment is what I need to remove it completely

Re: L'Oreal Micro-Dermabrasion

Does anyone know if this will cause a break-out? I've finally started to get my acne under control and want to try this product for mild scarring. However, I do not want to break out again because of it.

Any suggestions??

Re: L'Oreal Micro-Dermabrasion

hi all. i have been using microdermabrasion for about 6 monthes and it has not caused any breakouts. my skin feels so much smoother and softer i am so happy i tried this! i was scared at first because the last thing i wanted was for my skin to go crazy on me. my face is so sensitive to just about everything and this has been a great product for me. it really does get rid of skin discolorations and makes your face heal faster too. i have hormonal acne and i cant begin to tell u how much this stuff has helped me! i use this everyday though, morning and night after i wash my face, and then i mousturize. great product.

Re: L'Oreal Micro-Dermabrasion

Personally, I think this product works better than having microdermabrasion treatment with the machine. I think its because I was able to remove more dead skin myself with the kit than what gets removed in one treatment. My scars have lightened slightly but the biggest difference is how soft and smooth my skin is. I occasionally get a breakout, if a clogged pore is getting close to the surface and I scrub it.

Re: L'Oreal Micro-Dermabrasion

Hi all...
I have tried the dermabrasion product, and it was surprising how smooth it left my skin. My ONLY complaint was the scent-- very perfumey, perhaps to mask the chemicals. If not for that, I would be using this weekly , because it had no adverse reaction whatsoever.
