i would like to know what your opinion is of the pipita microdermabrasion? if done by qualified beauty therapist is it ok?

Also what options are avail for my neck, i see that with age i am only 36 though i have fold on the front of my neck exagerated by the fac t that i have a rather large goitre for a woman (checkd yearly no problems just have to live with it) i am not sure if these folds are just extra fat or if there is sumthin i can do maybe a type of massage or exercise or cream to make it smoother. Note that i am not talking of a double chin, its on the front part of my neck in the goitre region goin down towards the start of the chest, if i look at pics taken 5 yrs ago there are def folds of skn? is it aging? fat? ie if i loose more weight which i could loose about 5kg to be in normal BMi range maybe it would go?

Hi Miki, thank you for the question.

The Pepita Microdermabrasion unit is manufactured by a company called Mattioli Engineering (based in Italy) and what I like about the system is the sterile disposable delivery kits. This procedure should be safe and effective when performed by a trained and qualified beauty therapist.

Regarding the fold that you mention on the front of the neck my advice would be to consult a dermatologist or an aesthetic medical practitioner who can examine the area and give you an accurate cause. My feeling is that the fold has something to do with the goiter or with accumulation of fat.
