Microdermabrasion machines are emerging as viable alternatives to high-end spa treatments. Microdermabrasion, which is usually performed by a trained professional, is the abrasion of the top layer of skin to remove dead skin cells. The result of this intensive exfoliation is smoother, finer skin that looks and feels healthier. Used to treat wrinkles, scarring, sun spots and more, home microdermabrasion machines can make this process more affordable than repeated visits to the spa. But what's the difference between home and spa microdermabrasion machines, and which is best for your needs? Read on to learn more about home vs. microdermabrasion
If you want to try microdermabrasion at home, then check out the DERMAFLASH exfoliation device. This device is the next-best thing to a spa-quality microdermabrasion machine. DERMAFLASH uses sonic technology with a fine edger to exfoliate dead cells while trimming fine hairs right down to the skin surface. The result is a salon-quality look and softer, more supple skin. Using the DERMAFLASH device is easy; simply insert a fresh edge and then glide the DERMAFLASH over your skin at a 45-degree angle. Apply moisturizer when finished to feel fresh and revitalized.
Another popular home option is the PMD Personal Microderm Pro, which can be used on the face, legs, arms and more. Featuring two speed settings, various discs and a smooth glide tip, this handheld tool is simply traced along problematic skin. It exfoliates to provide a more youthful, vibrant look, reducing the appearance of skin lines and blemishes.
Then there are the spa-quality microdermabrasion machines. Diamond and Crystal are the two leading types of spa-level devices. The Nevada Dermacold 2-in-1 Diamond Microdermabrasion machine not only smooths and rejuvenates the skin, but also removes pigmentation, stimulates natural skin rejuvenation and alters the depth of skin wrinkles. Or there's the Crystal Microdermabrasion Micro 1, which removes dead skin cells and smooths the skin using a process of heat and friction rather than pure abrasion. Unlike home spa machines, more people who undergo spa-level machine microdermabrasion treatments notice more significant results after just a single session. Spa microdermabrasion machines are also comfortable and pleasant when used anywhere on the body. Take our quiz to see what kind of microdermabrasion machine is best for you.
