How to do DIY Microdermabrasion at Home?

Microdermabrasion seems like the new cool kid on the block. With the amount of love it is garnering from celebs and influencers, this skin treatment has become one of the most coveted of this new decade. It’s done mostly by pros, costs a bomb at the spa, and is a tedious treatment, sure. But every hotshot spa facial does have a home DIY counterpart. We are here to tell you more about it. Sit up and start taking notes, because here’s how to do DIY microdermabrasion at home.  

An Introduction to Microdermabrasion

  • Microdermabrasion is a facial/exfoliation/skin treatment where the topmost layer of your skin is removed using mild abrasion. It’s almost like sandpapering a rough surface (to put it in the most pedestrian terms). 
  • Diamond tips are used in the tool to perform this treatment. 
  • Because of its mildly invasive nature, microdermabrasion is usually performed by skilled and experienced aestheticians at a spa studio or the dermatologist’s office. 
  • The result? Smooth skin that is clear of acne, marks, blemishes, pores, scars, and even fine lines and wrinkles.
  • But this is a very expensive procedure. 

DIY Microdermabrasion at Home

While we would like to clarify at the beginning that microdermabrasion must be done by an aesthetician for best results, this is how one can do it at home: 

Step 1: Limit your sun exposure before microdermabrasion 

Start prepping your skin at least 1 week before you plan to do it. Keep your sun exposure to a minimum, and use a generous amount of sunscreen. Your skin can’t be sensitive when you perform your DIY home microdermabrasion.  

Step 2: Cleanse

At T-10 minutes, clean your skin thoroughly of any makeup, dirt, or other residue. You must start on a bare canvas that is devoid of any oils, creams, or even moisturizers. You can use the Savarnas Natural Makeup Remover for this as it is made from natural botanicals. 

Step 3: Start Slow

You will need to operate a microdermabrasion device. This tool must be used very carefully, so start operating it at the lowest setting. Go slow and see how your skin is taking the treatment. Very intense settings at the beginning may cause redness, irritation, and even bruising.  

Step 4: Apply exfoliating skincare products 

If you do not have a microdermabrasion device or don’t want to invest in one, then you can use this alternative. Skin-smoothing aluminum oxide crystals with lactic acid will help exfoliate your skin deeply.  

Another option is to use the Savarnas Natural Polisher Exfoliant, which is a home microdermabrasion treatment for $65. This product is a cruelty-free exfoliant with natural active ingredients. The non-abrasive skin resurfacing treatment it gives your skin is gentle. Added to this microdermabrasion is a bunch of hydrating and nourishing ingredients like seaweed extract, red tea extract, japonica extract, and hyaluronic acid. Together, these act as humectants to lock in moisture. The result is smooth, radiant and youthful skin that has been buffed off of all impurities and dead skin cells. This exfoliant has been vouched for by those who wanted to get rid of their wrinkles, fine lines, and uneven skin texture.  

It is also easier to use at home as all you’ve got to do is take a dime-sized product on your fingers, apply it on a clean and moist face, rub gently in circles for about 2 minutes, and rinse away with water!  

Step 5: Moisturize and Seal the Deal

At the end of your DIY microdermabrasion, you must seal your exposed skin with a rich moisturizer to immediately restore any lost hydration. This shall also promote skin healing. If you have a moisturizing serum, you can add that to your post-treatment care routine.  

Step 6: Do not Panic

You may not see immediate results. In fact, your skin may feel tight and red after microdermabrasion. But this is normal. If these symptoms don’t ease up after 24 hours, then you can consult your aesthetician or dermatologist. 


  • Do not over-exfoliate your skin. It may lead to damaging results.
  • Skip retinoids, harsh acids, and chemical peels in the week leading up to your home microdermabrasion. 
  • Keep away from Vitamin C skincare for a week before to avoid any irritation. 
  • Do not miss sunscreen application in the days before as well as after.
  • Keep your microdermabrasion home appointment consistent. This is not a permanent solution but a weekly/monthly treatment to maintain smooth and radiant skin. 

You can buy a microdermabrasion device, which is very expensive and may not be as easy to operate by yourself. Or you can invest in a natural exfoliant from Savarnas Mantra at a fragment of that cost to get you similar results in just a few easy steps.
