Microdermabrasion home systems are some of the most effective ways to get better skin, fast. Now, in the cosmetic industry, one gets jaded when they hear about that "new" product that is guaranteed to give you perfect skin. We've all heard this before and it usually only results in a lighter wallet. But, with the home microdermabrasion systems, there is actually some truth to this claim.

Now, these $30 products all promise a lot. Is it possible that such a cheap skin care treatment can in fact rival the more expensive $150 treatments out there? The answer is, yes - to a degree. But before picking up a microdermabrasion home system, you need to be aware of the facts.

Problems with Microdermabrasion Systems

One of the biggest weaknesses of the microdermabrasion home kits is the actual applicator. If it's difficult to use the system, the entire system doesn't work. Since the microdermabrasion applicator (or wand) is what applies the microdermabrasion product to your skin, one that does so ineffectively means that you will have underwhelming results.

One example of a bad microdermabrasion applicator is the HoMedics Microdermabrasion Total Facial Care package. I've personally broken mine several times within the first week. I've also hear other people reporting that the product vibrates too much when using.

Now, another problem with microdermabrasion home kits is that the actual microdermabrasion skin creams are ineffective. The premise behind microdermabrasion is that the skin is exfoliated with a special formula that removes the top layer of skin - leaving the clean and better looking skin beneath exposed. However, some of these creams wash the face not exfoliate.

Best Microdermabrasion Home Systems

Now, despite these problems, it's still worth getting one of these products. Those there are a few bad apples, there are some good gems to still choose from. One of the best (cheap) microdermabrasion home systems that on the budget side is Neutrogena's Microdermabrasion System. It's not spectacular, but it will give you some solid results if you follow the basic process for a few weeks.

If you have a bit more cash to spend, then consider taking a look at the Dermanew Facial Rejuvenation System. This system is only about $70 buck. The Microdermabrasion exfoliating cream is some of the best out there. It also includes antioxidants which helps add the power of anti-aging to your skin care regiment.The microdermabrasion crystals in the cream also work very well.

If price is no object, the get Youthful Essence by Susan Lucci. This amazing set gives you some solid results. The microdermabrasion resurfacing tool is the best out there and water proof. If you can afford it, buy Youthful Essence by Susan Lucci. The results will be worth it. I know many other people who find Susan Lucci Microdermabrasion to be the best system they have used.

So if you are thinking about getting a microdermabrasion home system, check out one of the three recommendations above. You will get the most bang for your buck.
