What does microdermabrasion treatment actually do? 

Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates the superficial layers of the skin. Over time, it helps your skin to renew itself by speeding up the cell renewal process. The results are smooth, radiant skin and an even skin tone.

What skin conditions can microdermabrasion treat?

Microdermabrasion is proven to be an effective treatment for superficial skin problems such as: fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, uneven skin tone and texture, hyper-pigmentation, acne and acne scars, sun damage, dull and dry skin, large pores, razor bumps and ingrown hairs, stretch marks and more.

Can African Americans the Sandy Brown product?

Absolutely!  However the Plum label products are a perfect solution for African Americans who are often limited by their skincare options.  Our microdermabrasion creams work for all skin types and colors and treat hyper-pigmentation, other uneven skin issues, acne, scarring, and more. The Sandy Brown labels products are formulated specifically for lighter skin and the Plum label products are formulated to be more effect for  people of color.   The crystals are the same and it is the cream formulas that are very different.

All other microdermabrasion creams on the market are not as effective.   Our product is more efficient at exfoliating your skin.  That is the simple truth.  In addition, we use only super premium ingredients, no fillers.  Every ingredient we use has a purpose. 

Can I use Refreshen Microdermabrasion Cream with other microdermabrasion tools?

Yes. Refreshen Microdermabrasion Cream may be used with any of the home microdermabrasion tools available on the market such as iSkin or Spa Gal. However, use of such tools are unnecessary, time-consuming, and messy.

How comfortable is home microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion treatments can only be a little uncomfortable if you use too much pressure to scrub your face, but there won’t be any pain. Please make sure you scrub your face gently enough to use the product every day.  After your microdermabrasion treatment you should know you have scrubbed but also be able to touch the skin you just treated and it should not be sore or stinging.

How do I use Refreshen Microdermabrasion Cream?

Begin by cleansing the face as normal.  Apply a small amount of cream to the skin using washcloth or fingertips.  Gently rub areas to be treated using small circular motions for approximately one minute.  Rinse face with water and pat dry.  Finish your treatment by applying a premium moisturizer to the face.  Also if you suffer from acne, apply a generic Benzoyl Peroxide product over areas of out brake twice a day.  

What can I expect after my microdermabrasion treatment?

After your microdermabrasion treatment, your skin will look radiant and healthy, and it will feel softer and smoother to the touch. Your skin may feel little more sensitive than usual. Follow up your treatment with a good, quality moisturizer. Apply sunscreen before going out. Avoid applying harsh chemicals and heavy makeup on the treated area.

Do I need to use a post-treatment skin care regimen?

No. You should, however, follow up your treatment with a premium moisturizer to keep your skin healthy and radiant.  Use a generic Benzoyl Peroxide product if you suffer from Acne.  Other than that, there is no recovery or downtime associated with using our microdermabrasion treatment.

How frequently can I use my Refreshen Microdermabrasion Cream?

Daily use works best as long as your skin is not sore or stinging after your treatment.  With microdermabrasion it is a matter of inertia (long term use) not unreasonable force.  If your skin has an adverse reaction, discontinue use for a few days.  When your skin returns to normal, restart your treatments but decrease the amount of scrubbing.   

How many microdermabrasion treatments do I need?

You should treat your skin once a day.  After your initial six months, people under age thirty five may be able to drop back to every other day and still maintain their appearance.  All people over thirty five should continue daily treatments indefinitely.  It depends on age and the condition of your skin.  Even young people who have acne scars will need to continue daily treatments indefinitely to improve their skin as much as possible.  Daily use is best and recommended for most people.   

How can I tell if my microdermabrasion treatments are working?

Although you will immediately notice the difference after the first use, we recommend taking pictures of your face before you begin treatment and then once a month thereafter. The results will speak for themselves and be warned, you will not want to show anyone your "Before" pictures to anyone after your skin has improved.  Almost all people simply pocket the concessions and accept that they are now starting out at the "new and improved baseline" and they will just improve from there.  They Will and you will too.      

Do I have to continue doing the treatments once I start?

Yes, daily use works best to maintain your renewed healthy and radiant skin.  It is only one minute a day of shower time. 

How long does a jar of  Refreshen Microdermabrasion Cream last?

Our 2 ounce jar lasts about four weeks, and our 8 ounce jar typically lasts most people three to four months.
