Did you ever realize that removing dull skin can make you look years younger, leaving you radiant? Weekly exfoliation is great, but sometimes, you want a little more oomph to your scrub. You can go to a dermatologist for a mircodermabrasion treatment or you can pick up an at-home tool. The DIY versions won't harm your skin, but will give more visible results than a topical scrub.
When I was younger, my Father and I would try to find new ways to remove blackheads. From old, small epoxy syringes to two Q-tips pressed together, we were obsessed with removing debris from our pores (my Dad was a big fan of me giving him facials around the fifth grade, a fact I had not recalled until this very minute). With that in mind, it should be no surprise that the part of this tool that doesn't exfoliate is my favorite.
As I mentioned, the RejuvadermMD comes with a "suction tip". This tip can be used to remove sebum from clogged pores, with the use of four different suction strengths. Of course, I skipped right to the highest level and gave my chin a literal "hickey". This tool means business! If you are using it on someone else, you can actually watch the sebum leave the pores and get sucked into the tip. If you are really flexible, you can lean in close enough to a mirror to watch. It's SO SATISFYING.
The RejuvadermMD also contains a diamond tip for the face and for the body. The precision tip is used on the face. This tip is very small and perfect for getting around your nose. You can control the amount of exfoliation by the strength of the suction (levels 1-4). The tip is long lasting and will remove significantly more dead skin than washing with a traditional scrub. There is also a medium-size tip for the face, great for larger areas like the cheeks and forehead.
It also contains a larger tip for exfoliating on the body. I've been trying to do this on the back of my arms where I have keratosis pilaris, or the Curse of the Irish. You know, those annoying red bumps that never go away. I'm starting to see a difference, but progress with keratosis pilaris tends to be very slow.
Finally, this DIY tool comes with an infusion tip, which helps push your topical skincare deeper into the skin. I imagine this would be incredible on the fine lines and trouble spots on your face. I don't exactly understand how this works, as it creates a very strong suction on the area, which removes a portion of the product. The few times I've tried it (on the lowest setting), my product has felt as if it were suddenly missing from my skin. I suppose it had gone into the skin, as it wasn't completely removed. I suppose I can't understand everything, so I deem this part magic.
Exfoliating the face can help reduce the visibility of fine lines, lessen the appearance of large pores, increase radiance and help your skincare routine be more effective. I recently had a facial at a salon and the esthetician could not stop marveling at how amazing my skin looked. She didn't believe my age. I have to believe the likely reason is because I just exfoliated and removed excess sebum (on separate nights) a few days earlier.
I love this tool for the multiple speeds and strengths, as well as the ease of changing the tips. It is stronger than other at-home microdermabrasion tools I've tried. Pick it up for yourself from Amazon for $200. It will pay for itself within two months!
