Skincare products have become an incredibly lucrative market, with new items available every day. One particular area of expansion has been in products related to exfoliation and abrasion treatment, where a lightly rough material is used to remove layers of dead skin and bring the fresh, smooth, new layers of skin to the surface. There is no doubt that exfoliation leaves the skin feeling great, but with so many products available, how do you know which to trust? There are several salon-grade exfoliating machines now on the market, and here I will review one of those products, the MicrodermMD.
What is it, and How Does It Work?
This product is a microderm abrasion machine, which gently but effectively removes the top layers of dead skin from your face and neck, revealing the fresh, soft, smooth new skin underneath. While this type of treatment is common in spas and salons, machines such as the MicrodermMD have only recently been manufactured for home use. Such a treatment at a salon can be expensive, and this machine represents an affordable alternative.
The product is manufactured by Trophy Skin, a skincare company that produce a range of treatments and solutions for various skin conditions. According to Trophy Skin, the MicrodermMD promotes the rebirth of collagen and elastin, which gives the skin a smooth, glowing appearance. Trophy Skin claim that with long term use, this product can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and brown spots on the face and body.
The machine uses a diamond tipped exfoliating wand and different levels of suction to physically remove dead skin from the face. With five power levels of exfoliation, you can choose a level that suits your skin, and can adjust the level for different areas, i.e. you can use a stronger setting for your cheeks or forehead, and a less powerful setting for the skin around your eyes.
Word On the Street is…
A majority of users focus on the short term effects of using this product and its fantastic ability to leave the skin feeling soft and smooth. There is far less information available for the long term benefits of the MicrodermMD stated by Trophy Skin. If you are considering purchasing this product in the hope that it will return your skin to a youthful, line-free nature, you may wish to wait until more reviews are available regarding long term use.
Most users are impressed by just how easy this product is to operate. Just a 10 to 15 minute treatment can leave the skin feeling visibly softer and looking glossy and smooth. There is no mess to clean up and the treatment is not at all painful. In addition, the MicrodermMD has an automatic setting where it will simply adjust the setting to suit various areas of your skin, and tell you which area to work on next. Many users enjoy this automated function as they do not have to think about what they are doing and can simply use the product.
Currently, all the reviews available for this product are very positive. Here’s an example:
“I didn’t even know that you could get something like this to use at home, and I was pretty surprised to find it for so cheap. I normally spend at least $60 each time I go to the spa for my microderm, and I honestly can’t tell much of a difference between the home treatment with the microderm md and what I was doing at the spa.”
This client is impressed by how the machine can provide results that are at least equal to that of a professional salon, and if you are regularly having this treatment at a salon, this product may represent a much more affordable option.
“It was very easy to use. The instructions were very clear. The suction was very good. I emailed customer service on the Trophy Skin website to find out where to get extra tips and filters and I got a very friendly response within 5 minutes. BTW, because this is diamond tip it should never have to be replaced unlike all of the others that use crystal and need constant replacing. And most of all, my skin looks great! I can’t wait to see how it will look after a few treatments.”
This customer was also clearly satisfied, and it is worth noting that they had a highly positive experience dealing with customer service from Trophy Skin. There are many reviews of this nature available, stating that the MicrodermMD is indeed highly effective in leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth after just one treatment.
The Fine Print
Although this product does provide rapid results, it may not be suitable for highly sensitive skin, even on the lowest setting. Also, if you’re looking for rapid results to reduce the signs of aging, you may not achieve them overnight. The MicrodermMD must be used over the long term in order to effectively reduce the presence of lines, wrinkles or age spots.
Also, it is important to note that it is only recommended that the product is used once a week, as using the product too frequently can be damaging or stressful for your skin and may result in redness or irritation. By bearing this in mind and following the instructions for use, you should achieve great results.
How to Get It
If you think this product is for you, head to the Trophy Skin website and purchase it from there to avoid paying extra by using a middle man. If you’re unsure as to whether the MicrodermMD is the right product for you, you’re in luck – it comes with a 30 day trial for just $14.95 when you pay for shipping and handling. Otherwise buy the product straight up for $299 with free shipping when you purchase from Trophy Skin.
The final verdict
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to keep your skin soft and smooth, this is the perfect product to use. Although it may seem expensive, if you regularly pay for microdermal abrasion treatment at a salon then you will quickly save more money that the MicrodermMD costs. You’ll be enjoying your beautiful smooth, glossy skin before you know it!
