Clear skin at the convenience of your home!
Nowadays, achieving perfect skin doesn’t necessarily mean going under the knife. More and more people are opting for non-invasive treatments like microdermabrasion. These so-called lunchtime procedures are popular because there is little downtime involved and also lower risk of complications.
Microdermabrasion can cost upwards of $100 per session at a beauty spa, and even more if it is administered by a dermatologist. No wonder many are turning to home microdermabrasion machines, which can cost less than 1 or 2 sessions at the spa, and allows you to use them anytime and as frequently as you want at the convenience of your home! Let’s look at some of the best rated home microdermabrasion devices available in the market.
At Home Microdermabrasion Machine Reviews
A home microdermabrasion device that is getting a lot of attention recently is the Nu Brilliance Microdermabrasion Skin Care System. It seems to be featured in many places, and there are even numerous YouTube Videos made on this system. However, there are also many customers on Amazon.com that have complained about the short life-span and issues with its suction system. I have not personally used the Nu Brilliance Microdermabrasion Skin Care System, so I can’t make any personal judgments here. If you have used this system before, do share with all of us your experience in the comment box below!
A home microdermabrasion machine that has received many positive reviews is the PMD Personal Microderm. This device uses aluminium oxide crystals that are also used by dermatologists and beauty spas alike. A great feature of this system is that it uses replaceable microdermabrasion discs of varying coarseness: blue discs for sensitive skin, green discs for normal skin, and red discs for strong dermabrasion. The starter kit comes with 2 green discs and 3 blue discs, and a white disc for practice.
Many users have seen improvement on their enlarged pores, acne scars, stretch marks and fine lines using the PMD Personal Microderm. Others have also noted that their experience using this system has been similar to professional treatments. On the other hand, some users have noted that it takes more than 3 sessions to see any noticeable results (which can be longer than the return period), and that the discs only last 3-4 treatments each. All in all, users have given 4.0/5 stars to the PMD Personal Microderm:
Another highly rated home microdermabrasion kit is the Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System. Perhaps the most cost effective device available on the market, this battery operated hand-held machine comes with one month’s supply of rejuvenating puffs.
Most users have noted that this system is very effective in clearing up blemished skin and brightening dull skin. However, many also commented that it is not as penetrating as other systems, and it may not be as effective on deeper scars and skin problems. With such a lower asking price though, it is definitely worth a try especially if it is your first time doing microdermabrasion. Overall, users have given 4.3/5 stars to the Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System:
