So I decided it was worth a try. I don't have sun damage or hardly any wrinkles yet, but I do have a lot of red and pink scars or marks left behind from acne. Not pitting, just discoloration. I was hoping this system would help diminish the appearance of these marks.
Well, I'm happy to report that it does. I've used it six times now and I have seen those marks fade dramatically. Yippee!!!
However, I feel obliged to mention that I've not followed the directions to a T. I had been using Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle/Anti-Blemish cream for quite some time with very positive results. This cream contains Retinal and Salicylic Acid. The directions for the Micro-Dermabrasion kit said that you should discontinue use of these products while using it.Read more ›
Anyway, I tried it the first week and felt my skin was noticeably softer and smoother. It also appeared a bit pinker than before I started. I assume it is because there is more circulation of blood to my skin then before. I will expect the improvements to continue, as others have mentioned on the internet.
As for the equipment, the applicating tool is very good quality. Solid design, easy hold, and very quiet. When you put it against your face the vibrations will take getting used to. I use a cybersonic toothbrush and am used to the vibrations and humming you'll experience throughout your head. Perhaps that is what the person was talking about who said this unit is loud.. But realistically, it is relatively quiet, not loud by any means.. For you homophobes, you can use it in the closet and not be scared of your girlfriend walking in on you ;) LOL...
Anyway, the lotion is gritty like fine sandpaper, but doesn't feel at all harsh on the skin when using it. I enough is provided to get the results you're looking for.
The unit comes with two sponge heads, the applicator, the applicator stand, the microdermabrasion lotion, and two AA batteries. A fine product. I bet if black and decker makes one guys will buy it ;P
However I guess proper exfoliation is the key because not only has my face completely cleared up but my overall skin tone is glowing and amazing. Skin I had previously thought was unattainable to me. I've also seen definate fading of the scars from years and years of breakouts.
So while it doesn't advertise that it could help treat acne, if you think about it, acne is due to pores clogged with sebum and dead skin cells so proper GENTLE exfoliation is critical.
I have *very* sensitive skin and find that this does not irritate my skin at all. And I can rarely buy anything right off the shelf and not break out from it.
I am also steaming my face and using clay masks alternately on days that I don't microderm.
It's also easy to clean and will be much cheaper to maintain than it's similar as-seen-on-TV counter part.
So five big fat shiny stars. Try it. Get it from a place with a good return policy so you can get your money back if it doesn't agree with you.
1. I love the vibrating application tool, which has two different intensity settings (it is a pleasure to apply the cream to your face)
2. The tool also helps to relieve tension headaches, which I did not anticipate
3. The product is very mild with little grit, which would be excellent for younger skin that doesn't need much assistance
4. Cream has very little scent
5. I could feel a small difference after the first application
6. My skin showed no reddening after application
1. The L'Oreal Refinish Microdermabrasion product is more effective at changing the texture of my older skin.
Overall I would recommend this product to anyone that is looking for a mild microdermabrasion product. If I had purchased this product 5 years ago (at age 39) it would probably have been adequate to achieve the desired result at that time. However, by age 44 I find that a little more "abrasion" is required to reveal the youthful skin hidden by the "aged" skin.
