In a previous post, I discussed microdermabrasion, a non-invasive skin care treatment of exfoliating the skin to uncover younger skin. Today, I am still going to discuss microdermabrasion, but instead of introducing it to you as a clinical procedure, let me share with you a product that allows anyone to undergo this skin care treatment without having to leave the house. I have discovered the Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System.
A Brief Background on Neutrogena
Neutrogena is one of the longest and well known manufacturing brands of skin and hair care products since 1973. Neutrogena was primarily known for its transparent mild liquid soaps that have been proven to thoroughly cleanse the skin without leaving any soap residues and allow the normal ph of the skin to return after a minute from cleansing. It was a Belgian cosmetic chemist named Dr. Edmond Fromont who patented this unique formula.
In line with the unyielding heritage of the Neutrogena Corporation to continuously design simple but increasingly high-quality beauty products that the public could trust, the company expanded and came up with several skin and hair care products over the years. One of its breakthroughs is the Advanced Solutions-Age Reversing product line in which the Neutrogena Microdermabrasion is part of.
Neutrogena Microdermabrasion Product Review
Smoother and healthier skin, even skin tone, and invisible acne scars — these are the results that the Neutrogena Microdermabrasion kit promises its users. The best part is, one can achieve these optimal results without having to shell out money for every session, because the Neutrogena Microdermabrasion is an at-home kit system all to itself for your private use. The starter kit contains a battery-operated two-speed sponge applicator and a micro oxide-crystal cream, which is responsible for the peeling.
Consumers’ reviews claim no harmful effects in using this product, but to be absolutely certain that it is safe to use for your skin type, consult a dermatologist first before you undergo the first session. Consumers have also attested to observing pleasing results even right after their first session, so it seems to show promise and to work too.
Four Easy Step Procedure
1. Using a mild soap-free facial cleanser (Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser), cleanse the face and pat dry.
2. Attach the foam sponge head onto the sponge applicator. Then, evenly dip the sponge head once into the micro-oxide crystal cream.
3. Turn on the applicator and at low speed gently massage the sponge on your chin, cheeks, forehead, and nose, respectively. Allot 1 minute of massage per area.
4. After treatment, rinse the face with lukewarm water. For better results, apply Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer at night and Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunblock SPF 30 during the day.
Through the Neutrogena At-Home Microdermabrasion System, you might expect what these folks did in the clinical trials; “91% had smoother, more luminous skin instantly, 88% had visible improvement in the look of fine lines after 1 week, 88% had significantly reduced appearance of wrinkles or age spots after 4 weeks, 72% had substantially firmer-looking skin after 8 weeks.”
It seems to work well, and it will save you hundreds of dollars over clinical microdermabrasion treatments. You can find the products here. Expect to pay around $20. A real deal.
