Is a Home Microdermabrasion Kit Worth the Money?

DIYs are all the rage nowadays. You may be interested in buying a personal microdermabrasion device. But is it worth it? Dive in to know more.
Is a Home Microdermabrasion Kit Worth the Money?

Let's turn back time for a minute: remember going to video stores such as Blockbuster to rent your favorite flick? Those were the good old days (and arguably, those days were not too long ago!) But did you rent your all-time favorite movie week after week?

It didn't make sense to rent your favorite flick repeatedly. You could have just purchased the- dare I say it- VHS tape, so you own it for life. That way, you save a lot more money than paying to rent it every time. 

Worth the investment, right? The same thing goes for your skin.

Why taking care of the skin is important

Our skin serves as our number one line of defense against infection. Without skin, we humans would be in constant danger from environmental factors. We could get dehydrated! 

It plays a role in our psychological health too. For example, most people with acne have anxiety, depression, or negative self-worth. Some people get botox or fillers to improve their skin or get rid of wrinkles. 

We face the world with the skin we're in so it's our job to take good care of it.

Getting in-office treatments is popular such as ultrasonic facial, microdermabrasion, photo dynamic therapy, and more. If you are in for the experience, then it would be an awesome gift for yourself. 

However, these skin treatments are often not a one-and-done deal. To keep getting great results, these treatments must be maintained at least twice a month. And that could be hard to keep up with because of the increasing cost.

Depending on where you go, professional skin treatments can cost $100-$500 per session. Of course, it would be a combination of several treatments, facial masks, and facial massage. But getting this bi-monthly is not chump change! 

For microdermabrasion, you may get these at $100-$150 per session. The reason why it's a pretty penny to get such treatment is that it's actually worth it- the results you'd see in your skin would be noticeably smoother and younger-looking. Instantly. 

But not everyone has the budget to fork out over a hundred bucks a pop each month to maintain their skin.

How Trophy Skin can help

Trophy Skin founder, Imran Karim, used to own a successful medspa in Dallas. Although his customers were happy with the in-office treatments, they wished they could take home the technology so they can keep having great skin.

And thus, the birth of at-home skincare devices. From light therapy and microdermabrasion devices to ultrasonic scrubbers, you can get spa-quality results right in the comfort of your own home.

The best part? There are 4 microdermabrasion devices to choose from in different price ranges to fit your budget and your lifestyle!

Microdermabrasion treatments can yield instant results. After each treatment, you will see and feel that your skin is brighter and smoother. 

If you want to get rid of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring or other blemishes, you may need 3 or more treatments. So, it would be costly to achieve these if you go to a professional salon.

Let's do the math: a $100 to $150 microdermabrasion treatment at the spa each month (if bi-monthly, that's roughly $200 to $300) plus transportation costs. Versus having your Microderm device for a flat fee of the same price or a little more, and you have it for life.

It's a no-brainer! Getting your microdermabrasion device is the way to go!

If you are new to microdermabrasion, you may not want to splurge on the most expensive device. A perfect tool we recommend is MiniMD. It's a small, handheld personal microdermabrasion tool that costs less than a trip to the salon! It's ideal for novice users.

microdermmd professional-grade microderm

Our most popular microdermabrasion device is the MicrodermMD. This professional-grade microdermabrasion device is comparable to the devices found in medspas. The wand-like applicator is easy to maneuver for even exfoliation. It comes with 3 treatment modes: Auto, Sensitive, and Manual. 

Auto and Sensitive modes have preset settings so you don't have to adjust the suction level. All you need to do is follow the instructions on the LCD screen. In 5 minutes, you are done treating your face, neck, and chest! Sensitive mode has gentler suction settings to allow for people with delicate skin to experience microdermabrasion. 

If you need more time, or you want to customize your treatment, you may choose the Manual mode.

Our UltradermMD is a 3-in-1 device that is perfect in giving you that salon-quality treatment. This complete home spa device is a great investment. You will have paid for this tool in less than 3 trips to the salon! 

You'll get better bang for your buck when you purchase any of the microdermabrasion devices from Trophy Skin. Whatever skin type you have, you may perform microdermabrasion. Although, if you have sensitive skin, we highly recommend getting a Fine Diamond Tip and either MicrodermMD or UltradermMD.
