Question from AndreaM

Hi Doctor Maureen, I really want a Clarisonic but it's very pricey and we don't have it available in S.A. I see at Dis-Chem they have a microderbrasion kit, what does a microdermabrasion kit do and is it good for someone like me with eczema?


A microdermabrasion kit will give you a mechanical exfoliation (versus for example a exfoliating product or peel). If you have eczema in the area that you intend to use this, I would advise against that idea. In your case you need to consult a reputable medical aesthetics doctor or therapist who is trained to deal with compromised skins.
