The Neutrogena Microdermabrasion system is an entry level product that can be found in many local stores, as well as on Amazon. It is aimed towards those who perhaps cannot afford a normal microdermabrasion system, but want something a bit more comprehensive than a normal cream. It only costs around $20, so you cannot expect it to perform as well as the real microdermaabrasion systems.
The system comes with an applicator (which they call a microdermabrasion applicator, but really isn’t), and a one month supply of rejuvenating puffs (twelve of them), along with batteries.
Microdermabrasion relies upon tiny microcrystals which are gently blasted onto the top layer of skin to remove any imperfections, and erase any damage done. This system does not do that at all, so you technically cannot call it a microdermabrasion system (it’s more of a marketing term in this case), however it does do a decent job when compared to creams at a similar price range.
The Kendal Professional Diamond Microdermabrasion Machine
Next up, is the Kendal Professional Microdermabrasion System. If you’ve had a professional microdermabrasion treatment, and want to find the same thing for your home, without spending an arm and a leg, then this is your best bet. The Kendal machine, unlike the cheaper Neutrogena models, is a true microdermabrasion system. It will flow micro crystals on to the top layer of your skin to remove imperfections.
While it will not be quite the same quality as the one your dermatologist uses, for in home use, and for the bang for your buck, this is a great system. Surprisingly it only costs around $200 at Amazon too. This machine is best used for personal use, and not if you plan to offer microdermabrasions in a spa or salon. That brings us to the next system…
The Diamond Microdermabrasion System – 4 in 1
The Diamond machine is a real gem. This is a professional grade system that can be used for both personal use (if you must have a top of the line system), or for use in a salon. Since it is a professional grade machine, it comes with a lot more features than less expensive machines. It allows you to treat the skin with both a hot and cold function, has an ultra sonic function to really get into the skin, and comes with absolutely everything you need to get started (multiple diamond tips and all).
Even though this machine is indeed powerful, and comes with a host of functions, it’s important to remember that it is still no replacement for your dermatologist. The price on this system is $469.95 at Amazon.
