Those of you out there who have had a microdermabrasion facial, is it any good? I am 35 with no real skin issues other than a little dryness. Groupon have 3 for £45 in my area at the moment. Thanks

dont even know what it is but....if it aint broke dont fix it!! Your skin sounds fine so just keep doing what you're doing! xx

Amazing! I had one and it was fab. My skin felt fantastic afterwards for days. I am 46 and my skin was quite dry. Got rid of all the dryness/dead skin cells.

I had a chemical peel last week and didn't find that as good.

I had a course of them on the run up to my wedding a few years ago and it was great because my skin had broken out and got congested. It sorted my skin out. Worth a go if you feel like treating yourself

Does anyone know if it leaves your skin red for a length of time after you've had it done? I am going to book an appointment but need to know if i'll have to hide away for a few days afterwards!

Also I have a bit of an acne break out on my chin, would they be able to do microdermabrasion on that area? Or would it damage the skin more?
