Microdermabrasion at home: How the Silk’n ReVit Microderm device will keep your skin free of dead skin cells and give you glowing skin.
Should you do microdermabrasion at home? The answer is, yes! If you’re obsessed with healthy, glowing skin, you have a jump on why it’s important to exfoliate. While many people use over the counter products and chemical peels to help slough away dead skin cells, there’s not a more satisfying way to do microdermabrasion at home than with a professional home device.
What is Microdermabrasion? Microdermabrasion is a process that takes off the top layer of the dead skin cells. The body signals this as a micro-injury, which then says, “hey, we need some new cell growth and collagen!” After one use, healthy skin is revealed.
While you can opt for getting microdermabrasion done for you in a medispa or at the Derm’s office, it’s now more accessible than ever, and more economical, to purchase your own personal device.
If you’re concerned about doing microdermabrasion at home, don’t be. When you use a device such as the Silk’n ReVit Microderm Diamond Peeling Tip Exfoliation, which is super gentle, you’ll never want to go back. It is a safe way to minimize the appearance of scars, acne, fine lines, wrinkles and dull skin.
How does theSilk’n ReVit microdermabrasion at home device work? Using a diamond tip and vacuum stimulation, it removes dead skill cells by sloughing and sucking away all the dead skin flakes into a little black filter. The suction also helps to improve the tone and elasticity of your skin, also giving it a bit of a massage.
How to use Silk’n ReVit:
Before you do microdermabrasion at home, you need to start with clean skin. Choose the tip you want, insert a round filter (there are 30 included in your kit) and secure the tip. One tip is rounded so you can get deep around the4 crevices of your nose.
There’s also two speed levels you can choose from. Once you have your device running, hold it like a pen and gently run it over your skin slowly treating each section for at least two to four passes. There is a very helpful manual in your kit that shows you which direction the device pen should pass. Also, you can use the device once per week.
Rinse your face and apply your skincare products.
I’ve done microdermabrasion on a professional level, but once I tried Silk’n ReVit I’ve discovered how effective an easy it is to do at home. It felt so relaxing, gentle and I love that you can adjust the speed and tips to get the desired results you need.
It’s definitely worth the investment.
