Microdermabrasion Tools

It is an unfortunate fact that over time pollution and the harsh sun affects our skin so it does not look as fresh as it once did. We also develop fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation and acne scars. If you like to look your best and want to give your skin a chance to shine again, investing in a home use branded or unbranded microdermabrasion kit might just be the key to having youthful looking and radiant skin while enhancing your complexion.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a process of removing dead skin cells. A special instrument with tiny crystals exfoliates the skin to reveal the new skin underneath. Many beauty salons offer this procedure but it can be expensive so having your own kit to do it at home is worthwhile. You can find all skin types microdermabrasion solutions, but some people will find it more beneficial than others if they have a lot of dry skin or problem areas.

Microdermabrasion Vs. Dermabrasion

Dermabrasion is a much more intensive procedure than microdermabrasion and this is best for people who have scars, deep lines or extreme sun damage. It exfoliates much deeper into the skin and is harsher on the skin than microdermabrasion.

Tools and Kits

Home use microdermabrasion kits are fairly inexpensive and are simple to use. Many kits come with a handheld machine, different heads for different exfoliating strengths and often blackhead suction tools. If you do not need all the bells and whistles, you can also opt for a simple handheld tool with one head fitting.


Microdermabrasion kits that you use at home are generally not as powerful as the machines that your beauty salon has. You can do your microdermabrasion daily or weekly depending on the machine so do check the instruction manual about recommended use. Your skin will possibly be red and sensitive after doing the procedure so do not try it before wanting to leave the house or put on makeup.
