Which Microdermabrasion Is Best For You?
Microdermabrasion in a clinical setting has tremendous benefits for the "patient" but requires several appointments and quite a sizable budget.
Can microdermabrasion at-home, that you do yourself, provide the same benefits and give you the same results as these professional appointments? Keep reading for the comparison and the lowdown on what home microdermabrasion can do for you.
In researching for this article, I found a number of articles and forums comparing Home Microdermabrasion to In-Office treatments and the In-Office treatments won because they are mostly being compared to topical "microdermabrasion" creams. Furthermore, these articles that are in the top 5 positions of my Google search were more than 5 YEARS old! The Home Beauty Tools market has exploded in 5 years and looks nothing like it did when these articles were written. It appears that I have stumbled upon a very, important topic that needs updating so that you, dear reader, are properly and currently informed.
Microdermabrasion treatments provide deep, yet safe, exfoliation that is beneficial for general skin health. When you have a layer of dry, dead skin on the surface, fine lines and wrinkles are accentuated. Texture is dull and uneven. Oils get trapped beneath the surface and make you more susceptible to blackheads, whiteheads and acne breakouts. The cumulative effect of these complaints are that you look more tired (and older) than you really are. Nobody wants to look worse than they feel! Here are just a few of skin issues that microdermabrasion tackles:

Why In-Office Treatments WERE Better
Many people are confused and believe that microdermabrasion is just an exfoliating scrub. In reality, companies like Trophy Skin have introduced quality beauty tools to the consumer that closely mimic office or spa treatments. The truth is, home microdermabrasion systems have been available for over 5 years now. Several years ago, you could buy a microdermabrasion machine to use for personal use, but it used those messy aluminum oxide crystals that potentially caused more harm than good, in the form of clogged pores and breathing in the fumes from the crystal “dust” during treatments. The first diamond-tipped microdermabrasion machines began entering the home-use market about 5 years ago. These machines were amazing, but the motors quickly clogged and were no longer effective. Savvy consumers became addicted to performing microdermabrasion themselves and began purchasing professional knock-off versions of microdermabrasion machines. The problem with these devices is that they didn’t have failsafe measures in place to keep a novice user from causing potential harm to themselves. This is the need that Trophy Skin solved in the home beauty gadgets market...Consumer Safety AND Effectiveness.

The PROs and CONs for both Professional and Home Microdermabrasion Treatments are outlined below. Now, you can decide for yourself what is your best option. If you are still not sure if microdermabrasion is for you, then I recommend you try a professional treatment just once. After that, you may very well find that you love it and will choose to invest in your own machine to use at home.

PROFESSIONAL-GRADE MICRODERM MicrodermMD is one of the first at-home microdermabrasion machines using dual-action therapy with a combination of diamond tipped exfoliation AND suction, enabling you to have true microdermabrasion treatments at home.
I recently purchased the microderm md and I can already see a significant difference in the texture of my skin. I've used it several times and my skin feels softer especially if when I apply my makeup. I'm very happy with my purchase and I look forward to keeping it in my skin care routine.
I'm an esthetician and wanted something I could use at home for myself that didn't cost thousands of dollars. Besides this product being awesome and effective, the customer service with This company is amazing and that means a lot. I highly suggest this product for someone who wants to improve their skin at home at an affordable price!
Great results only after using it for 2-3 weeks! My skin is glowing and I've had less breakouts. I love the convenience of the product without spending time and money trying to coordinate microderm appointments at a spa.
I was hoping to see results after a couple of weeks. I saw positive results after 2 uses!!
