How to Use Your Personal Microderm on your Elbows
Wouldn’t it be great it you had baby smooth skin, on every single part of your body? We think so. Since there are some harder to treat area’s we want to give you some tips to help you get that baby soft skin all over your body!
Prepping your skin for a microdermabrasion treatment is important, no matter what part of your body you are exfoliating. Taking the time to prep your skin will give you the best possible results. So here are 3 tips:
1. Wash your elbows with a gentle cleanser or body wash. Tip: Save a step! It’s easiest to do a Personal Microderm treatment twenty minutes after getting out the shower, when your elbows will be fresh and clean already.
2. If your elbows are cracked at all, take a few days to slather Vaseline or Aloe Vera on them to help them heal. It’s never a good idea to exfoliate over broken skin.
3. To get an extra great exfoliation, try using a gentle body scrub on your elbows after washing and before your Personal Microderm treatment. Tip: We only recommend this for those with thicker skin, or for a Personal Microderm treatment with lower grit exfoliation, like a blue or green disc.
Too Taut for You It’s still important to pull your skin taut on your body when doing treatments, but with the tricky skin on your elbow, simply bending your elbow will pull your skin just right to do a great treatment!
Start in the Center If you’re struggling to get a suction on your elbow, try starting at the point of your elbow and gliding the PMD in a star design, starting in the inside and moving outwards.
Finish it Up To help your elbows take full advantage of the exfoliation, be sure to moisturize! We love the Professional Recovery Moisturizer for dry elbows.
