At Home Personal Microderm

I’ve been meaning to put this up for about a month (and had it already written, just as a draft) but TOTALLY forgot about it!!! eep :X

Shades sent me one of their at home microdermabrasion tools to try out and review. I was really excited because I have always been intrigued with the idea of microdermabrasion. I’ve used loads of scrubs before, and Clarisonic, but nothing quite like this!

From the website:

Achieve amazing anti-aging results at home with Personal Microderm System. It works just like a professional microdermabrasion treatment without the hassle or cost. The hand-held device uses the same aluminum oxide crystals as the ten thousand dollar machines found at your doctor’s office. It smooths away dead skin cells, diminishing age spots and other signs of aging.

Basically, to use this you first wash your face and dry it completely. Then, you pull the area of skin you are going to use it on taught with one hand’s fingers, and put the microderm against your skin so it forms a vacuum and guide it across the area of skin, lift it up, and move down to another area. The area will be pink after you use the tool on it, so you’ll know where you have already used it. After you have used the tool all over your face, wash your face again and apply a nice, thick moisturizer. It’s important to use a moisturizer and SPF for a few days after using this, because your skin will be sensitive. It is recommended to use not more than once a week.

The kit comes with a set of blue exfoliating disks and a set of green disks. The blue is for sensitive skin, green for rougher skin.They also have different sized disks, with a larger one for larger areas like the cheeks and forehead, and a small disk for hard to reach areas like the nose and around the mouth.

When I first used this, I was actually a little scared. Upon turning it on for the first time, it’s pretty loud, and when the disk touches your skin, the sound gets louder, like a drill, and it feels similar to sandpaper on your skin. Not unbearable but definitely super abrasive! I was going in with the idea that my skin could definitely handle some exfoliation. I used the blue disks, but used a rougher touch and went over some areas around my chin with clogged pores more than once. BIG mistake. I ended up having a super chapped, red spot near my chin, that took over a week to go away!

Other than that fail, I could definitely tell my skin was much softer after using this. I also think this has something to do with my hyperpigmentation fading, which is nice too!

That being said, it is expensive, but in comparison to what this would cost you to get done at a dermatologist it actually comes out to being a pretty good deal. SkincareRx is selling this for $177. Not bad for a holiday present :)

Have you ever used a microderm product like this?

If not, what are your favorite face exfoliators?

    I use the Oil of Olay Microdermabrasion kit (scrub+peel serum) and I love it! I have the same hyperpigmentation issues from acne scars and they have lightened up so much due to bi-weekly use of this kit.

    Im wondering how this would work on already uuber sensative skin.. =^.^=

  3. twinkletoes says

    frankly, that sounds scary. that is the kind of thing that should only be handled by a pro. i can imagine some people going overboard and scouring their faces down.

  4. Maryam says

    I haven’t used anything like but my favorite exfoliator is an apriot scrub from CVS pharmacy. I had really bad acne, and after using this, my acne legit went away in a week. It’s also rough, and I remember hearing you say that you like rough exfoliators. You should try it!:)

    1. Emma says

      I have read/watched reviews and I hear the apricot scrubs are TERRIBLE for your skin… you may not be able to see or feel a difference, but they have done tests and when magnified it literally tears up your skin… I always heard great things about the apricot scrubs here and there but I watched a video from smokeypinkleopard on youtube and her dermatologist strongly recommended against it! Just a little FYI :)

  5. Julia says

    I’ve never tried a mircoderm product. I use something called P50 lotion by Biologique Recherche. It’s a liquid chemical exfoliant. I’ve also used DDF Acne Pumice Scrub, which I really loved in the summer, but my skin is too sensitive for these days. Do you recommend the Clarisonic?

  6. Emma says

    It sounds like the IZOLAZ treatments that can run up to be over a thousand dollars! When you said the vacuum thing, because thats what it does too. So in comparison it is much cheaper. How do you clean this though? I see the machine has this little box type of thing, is there like a place where are the icky stuff from your face goes? Gross to picture in my head X-( But a good question!

  7. GMM says

    I love getting a good microderm because I have rather large pores that get clogged easily. (Before I loved out of my parent’s house I would get them done for free at my dad’s place of work) But I most deff recommend going to a pro to get this done, because as she described in her post she applied a bit more pressure and went over areas twice and her skin became chapped and dry. That is most deff a no-no. I’m afraid people would go over board and scrub all the skin off their faces and have to get skin grafts x.x not cool.

    If you have the extra cash, or know someone that will do it for free I recommend you go to a pro. If not be REALLY careful when using this, your skin is the biggest and most sensitive organ in/on your body. You don’t want to mess it up!!! x.x

    1. GMM says

      Oops. I put ‘loved out of my parents house’ I meant ‘moved’ lol XD

    This usually deednps on the product you are using for microdermabrasion. I had experienced good results for my acne scars with just 3 sessions of Zenmed’s renewing microdermabrasion complex.In fact as you say, that you have mild acne, acne scarring, oily skin and red spots due to acne, then why do you want to have microdermabrasion sessions. These sessions at a spa are expensive and would only give you relief from scarring and your oily skin problem.I would suggest you use Zenmed’s derma cleanse acne system. It is a powerful system comprising of products that helps in getting rid of acne from its roots, stop its early re-occurrence, minimize the scarring and redness, unclog pores and provide a clean, clear and smooth skin. This would cost you just one-fourth of what you would end up paying at a spa and also save you alot of time. I would advise you to go for this stuff for a permanent solution to your skin problems.I would also offer you to use my discount code zen4less to avail a price off, in case if you make up your mind to buy this product.
