For smoother skin and reduced lines and wrinkles, most people resort to professional skin treatments with a dermatologist. Many home microdermabrasion machines are now available for purchase that give consumers a similar cosmetic lift without having procedures done in an office. According to the University of Michigan Cosmetic Dermatology and Laser Center, microdermabrasion resurfaces the uppermost layer of skin and suctions away dead skin cells and debris. The process is typically done as a series of treatments to brighten and renew the skin.
Crystalift promises better-looking skin when using their home microdermabrasion machine, comparing it to those used in the offices of dermatologists. The Crystalift machine has tiny, encapsulated crystal minerals that are used to scrub and exfoliate the skin. The system also has a vacuum that you use following microdermabrasion to firm the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Crystalift may be used with all skin types and on other parts of the body besides the face, including the neck and hands. Changes in skin texture may be seen after the first treatment and with continued use, consumers may see a reduction in fine lines and age spots.
NuBrilliance offers a home microdermabrasion machine that promises rejuvenated skin and a reduction in fine lines. The NuBrilliance system uses diamond peel exfoliation, which consists of tiny diamond particles that gently scrub the outer layer of the skin to remove dead skin cells and promote circulation. NuBrilliance has the added technology of a vacuum system, which helps to restore collagen, an important protein that supports skin and connective tissues. By using the abrasion system with the vacuum, skin can become firmer and healthier looking.
Timepeel was the first diamond microdermabrasion machine approved by the FDA for use in the home. The machine's action mimics that of procedures done in health spas. Timepeel uses cut diamond particles to exfoliate the skin and has a vacuum that suctions dead skin cells, collecting them to discard. Timepeel recommends using the system every two weeks and effects may be seen after the first use. Results include rejuvenated skin that has a healthy glow, with the reduction of acne scars and lines after multiple treatments. Timepeel also offers a 30-day, money-back guarantee for customers who are not completely satisfied with the system.
