Question: What products do you use for microdermabrasion? I would like my hands and face done but I have allergies to a variety of facial products. Can you test for allergies ahead of time?
Answer: For a microdermabrasion we do not necessarily have to use any products at all. In fact a standard microdermabrasion does not use skin care products since it is simply a mechanical exfoliation of the superficial layers of the skin. At Quintessa Medical Spa we do; however, frequently combine microdermabrasion with either a chemical peel or nutritional serums. If you do have allergies to products I would recommend you see a dermatologist so that you can determine exactly what you are allergic to and then any sort of future skin testing would be unnecessary as we could just simply read the ingredients in any of the products that are available.
