Disastrous Microdermabrasion September 25, 2010 | 53 of 112 people found this review helpful
I made an appointment for a facial and microdermabrasion through spafinder for "deal days." Each was only 50 dollars. But, I wouldn't return to this spa if they were free. I had never had microdermabrasion before and trusted the facialist when when told me that it "should hurt" and that I "should have scabs" on my face afterward. It was, however, extraordinarily painful and in response she kept trotting out cliches like "no pain, no gain" and "Rome wasn't built in a day." I called my dermatologist directly afterward and he informed me that I should not experience the kind of pain or damage that she had inflicted--that I most definitely should not scab after microdermabrasion and that such rough treatment could do permanent damage.
The facial was perfectly adequate, but the extractions were very painful after the microdermabrasion had left my skin raw. When the facialist wasn't speaking in coded cliches, she was criticizing me for everything from my facial care regime (understandable) to my birth control choices (utterly inappropriate). When she left me for 20 minutes while she gossiped with the receptionist and returned to say "you just can't relax, can you," I realized that all I wanted to do was leave. A terrible experience.I would visit this business again? No
