If you want to save money and do microdermabrasion at home, you have come to the right place. I have tested and ranked the top at-home microdermabrasion machines.
1. Kendal Professional Diamond Microdermabrasion Machine
Highlight: The diamond-tipped microdermabrasion machine from Kendal is a must-have for skincare enthusiasts. It’s like a spa session in the comfort of your home, giving visible results without the fuss—don’t forget the sunscreen post-session!
Helpful review: “After I went for a round of 6 professional microdermabrasion treatments *I had the crystal microdermabrasion used in the spa* I noticed how great my skin was after that soI did LOTS of research to find a salon quality diamond tipped microdermabrasion machine.The reason I chose diamond tipped is for many reasons;1. Cheaper because you do not have to replace crystals like other machines. Also, when I was using the salon my results were inconsistant. About 3 out of 6 provided obvious results. When her chrystal machine was working properly I had great results but when It was not I would leave there with chrystals all cloging my pores. Also I would have the Aluminum oxide crystals in my nose. If I would have been smarter I woulnt have gotton a treatment with chrystals because having them enter your lungs can be dangerous:( Since I loved the good resluts I decided to research how to get a diamond tipped one they give NO debri (all skin sucked up is put threw two filters that should be replaced after each session.2. The diamond tips can be cleaned with a soft *must be a soft* tooth brush, toothpaste or dawn and hot water *Be sure before putting any of your tips near the sink that you have a plug in the sink. You would not want to loose any of these precious tips. Diamond tips are also far better for your health than the *crystal system* because there is not any debri put into the air and since it is diamond tipped there is nothing to clog pores. From my experience with the chrystals I had inconsistant results becuse the machine has to both blast out chrystals and suck the debri up at the same time. The Professional Diamond Microdermabrasion Machine HB-SF01 by Kendal is the absolute highest product on the market. This product is the type that is used in day spas and dermatologist offices. It comes with 9 different diamond tips.3. It is very easy to use and easy to clean. To find a good deal on filters contact me and I will help you find the cheapest filters.Also, I would highly recommend any one who wants greater detail about what I wrote above go to:[…]4. I also recommend purchasing a facial steamer like this one[…]- If you look at the comments you will see mine 🙂 Katie KatiekI do hope anyone who wants amazing skin try these products.KatieCoweta, Ok” – Katie
Helpful review: “I LOVE this machine. Let me just say that after reading reviews I was so nervous whether the suction would be strong enough but decided to give it a try anyway. This machine arrived unused and in perfect condition and was packaged well. The suction is incredible! For those who say it does not have strong enough suction, they may either be made of reptile skin or they do not have a good connection between the skin and the diamond heads, or maybe they did not screw the diamond head all the way on the handle. This at home microdermabrasion machine definitely will have enough suction for everyone. The claim of “professional” in the description of this product is on point! There is nothing amateur about this machine. I would suggest if you have never done microdermabrasion before or have not done it yourself to watch a youtube video of people showing you how to use one. There are so many helpful tutorials on youtube. This machine has saved my face by the way. I am 32 and have always had perfect normal skin without any sensitivities. Suddenly 3 months ago I started breaking out for no reason! No stress, no change in diet or exercise. I was sensitive to everything and had seriously bad acne on my chin. I was getting a new zit or pimple on my chin every day, sometimes 2 every day. I would just wake up and suddenly have 2 very unwelcome solicitors on my chin in the morning. Not only this but my chin was covered in acne scars. I tried washing my face twice a day, salicylic acid treatments, apricot facial scrubs, clay masks, everything and the only thing that worked was the incorporation of using this machine twice a week, washing my face at night, and a natural acne oil from Forces of Nature in morning and night.I spent hours of research on at home microdermabrasion machines. Let me save you the homework and tell you to just buy this machine. It is fantastic and I can’t see my life without it.” – ladyK
User review: “I was looking at getting microdermabrasion procedures done on me for some superficial scars, fine lines, pore reductioon and over all texture of my skin. I found that the procedure runs from $80-$$200 a visit. I looked all over and I researched each model that amazon has listed and I read the reviews of this machine and while there are only a few reviews I really felt good about this machine. I am so happy I purchased this one.1. It is a 9 pound machine, this is a professional machine.2. It comes with 9 different heads that can be used and the box tells you which head for which area.3. It comes with a booklet that tells you how much suction to use on each area, as well as how to use it properly.4. It comes with a whole bunch of filters and if you get it from the Shining company when you run out they said contact them for replacement filters. They are awesome too! great customer service! I asked about filters and they responded on a weekend within 5 minutes.I have only used it once so far I have had it less then one week, and it has serious suction, I was not sure how it was working, I took before pictures that I will update every 5 weeks until I am at the results I am seeking. In one use there was a difference in my skin texture that I could see when comparing to the pictures and days later my skin is still super soft.I will update this review with before and after photos when I have them. My first use was on January 23rd 2012.” – brandita
User review: “Ok i honestly got this for a gift from my boyfriend. He knows how much i like to take care of my skin and how much I hate the acne scars and i have had piercings so i have scars from them too. After just one use i could see a difference in my skin it was smoother and hella soft. In 2 uses my boyfriend noticed my scars where less visible. I also thought i would have a hard time figuring out how to use it but I did not. It was really easy and if you do not understand the directions then there are lots of videos online. This is an amazing machine and im so glad my boyfriend bought for me. Im also glad that it came with a lot of filters which is awesome. When you take the filter out you literally see all the dead skin that came off your face Amazing. I would 100% recommend.” – Chance Fox

User review: “this dermabrasion really works for me. you can see the powdery like (deadskin flakes) accumulated in the cotton filter suctioned from your skin.it would have been a five star if the diamond tips are of in greater quality. but nonetheless it is still effective and safe for your skin.i thought the machine is small but its quite big.i used the maximum pressure in my legs and woke-up with line red scratch coz i got excited in using it. i did not worry about it coz i know it will fade easily as our skin heals itself.ahhh at last after a yearof research, got the courage to buy this machine and its reaaly worth buying.110 voltage.how to clean the tips: dip it in a container with alcohol then i washed it with newly boiled hot water to disinfect more.” – C Ci
2. UNOISETION – Diamond Microdermabrasion Machine Professional
Highlight: This microdermabrasion machine is a powerhouse—great suction and effective for various skin treatments. Just a tip: start with low suction to avoid leaving any marks, especially on sensitive skin.
Helpful review: “The power on these units are great and the suction is more then enough.” – Joe
Helpful review: “Great suction great product for the price – only down fault if that the rubber piece that’s supposed to hold the different size heads comes off with it :/ other than that great product.Be careful when using it everyone’s face is not the same some people have softer and more delicate skin so less suction is needed don’t start off in the middle suction. Start low and continue to ask your client if that suction is good or if you can go higher.Be careful as some skins are more sensitive and you can leave their face with red marks looking like Hickeys.” – Lorena Magnoler
User review: “I have to say I love this machine. It is powerful, easy to use and customer service is Excellent! It arrived and one of the bottles didn’t work. Contacted them through Amazon. They sent me 2 new bottles plus the hoses to go with them. YouTube has some great videos. I also found a bag that works great to keep everything together. ” – StoneyBooks
User review: “Very affordable for just starting my business, great results for skin treatments.” – Dee
User review: ” I like the tips and then Microdermabrasion part but the Hydro spray did not work properly. Only one out of two bottles sprayed anything. I wish I would have tried this product out right away instead of waiting several months before using it.” – Abbas S.
User review: “I use this on my husband every 3 or 4 days and have not even had it 4 months and have already started seeing a difference. He suffers from skin issues and has always tried creams, peels, meds, sun, etc. Nothing had ever given him such a big difference and relief as much as this machine.” – Gina
User review: “I’m esthetician and I love to used it’s easy to use and clean and works perfect” – Itse Rodriguez
3. Yofuly – Diamond Microdermabrasion Machine with Spray Gun
Highlight: This microdermabrasion machine is a standout in my skincare arsenal, delivering noticeable results on fine lines and leaving skin glowing.
It’s powerful yet gentle on delicate skin, and while it may come with a learning curve, a quick YouTube tutorial has you covered—just don’t skip the moisturizer and sun protection post-treatment!
Helpful review: “I love everything about this product; I’m an esthetician and use this in my practice for facials and body treatments; there are nine different tips about half have a rough/medium/fine grit to work in stages which is great for working in stages on skin. The glass suction tools are great, too. It states to use them for comedone removal (which it works pretty decently for) but I use the wide flat attachment on a low suction power setting for Lymphatic manipulation. The suction power is also MORE than enough, I have yet to use the device at full power because most of the clients I use this on have aging and delicate skin and I don’t need that amount of power. Even for more resilient skin such as on the back or booty or anywhere else, medium suction power is absolutely adequate. (When it starts making that puckering sucking sound, back off the suction just a hair because that’s way too much: longer sustained contact during your passes builds pressure so suction increases (it does require a tad bit of finesse and awareness to get the perfect amount down: hence why professionals are recommended!!!) so you don’t need to go full blast!I have the style 4 stars because I don’t need the huge tray attached to the back of the unit; I keep my wands and attachments in a closed container to keep them clean between uses. It does help when I’m in session but I also use a rolling cart with plenty of space to set the wand down next to the unit if I need to. I also would suggest a finer mist spray for the toner spray bottle attachment that comes with it, it works almost too much like a mist setting on a water hose. I have yet to figure out how to get the bottle attachment nozzle to spray less. It might not. I’m not sure yet. The directions don’t really talk about that!Other than that, I love that there are two packets of filters included; one full of small ones for the wand head attachments, and larger ones for the tube insert inside of the actual unit. It also comes with a clear tube for the wands, and a black and a red tube to use separately for the glass suction attachments and the toner bottle sprayer attachment, so that cross contamination is avoided and you can keep things nice, neat and clean for your guests!Overall, I really love this microdermabrasion unit; it’s MORE than enough for what I need! I’m so happy with it!” – Amanda Bustamante
User review: “Absolutely love this product. Started seeing a difference in fine lines after 4 uses. I use about twice a week now” – Paula B.
User review: “Quick ship works great!! I’ve had mine a few months and I love it and it’s still working great” – Kk N
User review: “I loved!!! My skin was amazing, glowing!!😍 black heads free!!! 😃” – Juan & Margot Pachiarotti
User review: “Great machine. You will need to google or YouTube instructions. Works good” – Amazon Customer
User review: “Best machine ever! I used YouTube to get more details about the machine. No setup instructions.” – Ontoria Robinson
User review: “I can’t believe I was paying $100 to get this done at a place and now I can do it all by myself. Works better then I was expecting. I’ve used it 2x so far and love it. Make sure you put moisturizer on after and do not go directly in the sun after you use it” – andrea
4. Trophy Skin MicrodermMD – At-Home Microdermabrasion Kit
Highlight: The Trophy Skin microdermabrasion system is a clear winner in my book for its user-friendly guidance and effective results.
It’s given my skin a newfound smoothness and glow, though it’s crucial to keep the tip clean during use to avoid any mishaps. Just be cautious—while my experience has been stellar, others have reported issues with durability and customer service.
Helpful review: “I have owned & done extensive research on several microdermabrasion systems. This one, is by far, is my favorite. I love how it walks you through the process for newbies & once acclimated, allows you to use in manual mode as well. I also love the variation of settings present. It allows you to adjust the suction when need be. I use lower suction on sensitive areas like around my eyes & cheeks. I previously owned a handheld unit, where the entire unit fit in my hand, which is different from this. This one is a bit larger, but very visually appealing. I prefer the “pen wand” instrument, it allows me to treat the areas, I could not effectively treat before. For example, my forehead, with my older unit, I was not able to get a consistent suction ever! I just could not get the angle correct, after months of trying! The trophy skin system, allowed me to easily get to all the areas I was ineffectively treating previously. It is extremely simple to maneuver. I actually started with the Trophy skin infrared light & saw the mind blowing bennifets it had on my skin, so I decided to take the plunge with this device as well, as my expirence with Trophy Skin has been very satisfying.One thing they do not emphasize enough, to keep in mind, make sure you have your cleaning brush out and constantly brushing tip clean during the treatment. I have had NO issues with this system, BUT my previous expirence with a DIFFERENT device, I did not clean the diamond head throughout the duration of the treatment, and the dead skin cells would built up on the tip, and eventually leave scratches on my skin, so be careful. Again, this happened with a different device, just something to keep in mind while treating. I use a kids toothbrush to clean & it works perfect.My favorite part is after the treatment, when you remove the head to change filter, you get to see all the crap that came off, it’s instant an gratification!!!All in all I would recommend this product to anyone, as I have achieved great success with it!” – JJ
User review: “I’ve used this three times since purchased. The photo attached is after third time use. All three felt disks looked like this after each use. My skin feels smooth and soft. My makeup looks flawless. I love this machine and am very happy with this purchase.” – Sara M
User review: “I love this machine. Just days after I stared to use it I noticed tremendous change and not just me but other people. Unfortunately it stopped working only 7 weeks after I bought it. The guarantee is expired. I have send an email hoping that they will fixed it or replace it because I truly love it and need it” – Karol G
User review: “To start, the item arrived without a charger or DVD. I called in order for the items to be sent to me and the lady was rude about it. At the end she agreed to send me the charger and DVD which arrived a week later. When I finally thought everything was okay and tried to use it, the screen on the product never turned on. Can’t say if it’s a good product because I never had the chance to actually use it 😂 Has definitely been a headache and I will be returning it. Very disappointed” – Karina Muniz
User review: “I’ve had this machine for less than a month, used about 5 times, and its lost its suction. I made sure to change the filter and clean with the brush everytime I did a different spot on my face and after each use. For the amount of money I’ve paid it was not worth it!” – Me
User review: “Omg. I’m THRILLED with this purchase. I have never bought a skincare tool that was over $20, so I was really frightened that the reviews were all fake. THEY ARE NOT. Baby I’m telling you this is magic. Results shown are from only 1 use. I got off a massive amount of dead skin and my texture is now smooth again. I struggled with texture after having cystic acne for a year. I can see that regular use of this is going to have me in amazing shape. I’m 28 for reference! I feel like I have baby skin. BUY IT, you won’t regret it, it works great on sensitive skin.” – ✨☕️ 🌱
User review: “Received this afternoon and immediately decided to return. Both the item and packaging had scuffs making me think it was open, possibly even used, then returned. Given the use and price, I want to make sure I get a new item. But given this experience, I’m not sure I’ll reorder.” – rebecca
5. Yofuly – 65-68cmHg Suction Power Professional At-Home Dermabrasion
Highlight: This microdermabrasion machine feels like a steal compared to professional treatments, delivering spa-worthy results at home.
The suction is strong, so handle it carefully, especially around delicate areas. Remember to change those filters, and if you’re a newbie, watch some tutorials—this isn’t a toy. It’s a powerful skin tool.
Helpful review: “I’m a licensed esthetician. Sold my larger Diamond Microdermabrasion machine when I purchased my new Crystal Microdermabrasion machine a couple months ago. Still needed a Diamond Microdermabrasion so I chose to purchase this smaller version.Was hesitant but after I got everything hooked up …which was very easy by the way!!! ( not sure why others who have bought this have complained!!)I was very impressed with how strong the suction is , which you can adjust. Quiet motor …not offensive while running.This would be good for home use but anyone not familiar with using a Microdermabrasion should truly be aware of how to prep your skin prior to using this machine…. and how to take care of your skin afterwards!!! You can cause more damage if you don’t know what you are doing!!!Please be careful!!!!!” – Beth Anne
User review: “I was hesitant to buy this product- honestly, how good can it be for this price after having this procedure done at the dermatologist for $130 per session? I am here to tell you that this is an amazing product that works just as well as the one at the doctors office. The benefit? I use it as often as I want. The way I see it, it has already paid for itself this week after doing my face, and my daughter and husband’s faces multiple times. Do yourself a favor and purchase additional filters when you order the machine because before you know it, all of your family and friends will be coming over for facial weekends!” – Happy customer
User review: “i have used the machine three times since I purchased in November was excited to use seemed ok but not quality . The suction started out strong but is now very low I had on highest the first time and it was very high too high . The lowest has no power now and the highest is reasonable now . I wish I would of researched better . Only using three times for the money also the. pads seem to slip out of place having to unscrew tip and replace during session is inconvenient” – Sandra S
User review: “I’ve been getting monthly diamond microderm treatments for 5+ years. They cost (with a facial) between $150-180 per treatment. Recently, my esthetician lost her lease for her spa space so I was without my facials and microderm. While waiting for her to find a new location I decided I’d buy this and see if it worked or not. I usually expect beauty and hair devices to fail. Rarely do they live up to their marketing. This one is a winner! My skin looks and feels just like it does after the expensive spa treatments. You do need to know what you’re doing so watch some youtube videos if you’re new to this (because you can harm your skin). I figure I’m going to save at least $1800 a year. It’s a good quality machine and super easy to use (again, once you know what you are doing). The bonus for me is that I have some areas that I’ve wanted to focus more on but would mean more trips to the salon and more money. I don’t have sensitive skin so on the problem areas i can use it more frequently (every 2-3 weeks instead of the once a month I’ve been going). I will miss the whole spa experience but it’s a fair tradeoff for me. Now, will this machine last? I don’t know. I haven’t had it long enough to say, but if I had to buy 1 a year it would still be cheaper since it actually does what it is supposed to.” – VWHITMORE
User review: “This pays for itself in 2 uses. I got the idea of getting my own when my former esthetician told me she was buying one on Amazon. I shower/steam, use the machine on lower suction, follow with a hyaluronic acid mask and apply my usual facial products. They sting a little, but I’ve only had issues in places where I have gone in with a little too much enthusiasm. Concerned that the tips don’t keep their “diamond” roughness, but for now I am good. Watch out because it is easy to over-do and get marks/bruises. Guess what… when you own it you can do your décolletage without an extra fee!” – CAP
User review: “I had been getting microdermabrasion facials for over 15 years until covid hit. I loved them and really missed getting them. I’ve always felt it made me look much younger than my age being in my later 40’s. I had to take a break from them during the lock downs in 2020 and then our finances changed due to an illness. It’s been almost 3 years and I started thinking why not do them myself so I started looking into machines. I was skeptical about this one because of the price being so reasonable but I have been pleasantly surprised! This machine works very well, and the suction is good as long as you change those filters as required. I’ve done two facials so far and my face looks healthier again already. Being able to give myself one of these facials once a week will be a treat and help my skin to look and feel better and I can do it at a fraction of the cost. My Sunday evenings have become my at home spa day lol. I do my nails, do a foot bath and then a micro. This is great!” – Melissa
User review: “This is not for at home use! I’m a licensed professional and when trying on myself (I always test on myself before clients) I ended up with “scratches” because the head was so crisp! This is a normal side effect, but definitely a high powered machine. It works great on clients and I have had no issues other than the test run on myself. Licensed professionals, Buy. At home users: exfoliate instead or SEE A PROFESSIONAL! You could damage your skin if you don’t know what you’re doing.” – aj
6. Microderm GLO – Diamond Microdermabrasion Machine and Suction Tool
Highlight: This microdermabrasion device is a true gem in my skincare routine, offering professional-level care that turns back the clock on my skin.
It’s user-friendly even for beginners and delivers immediate results with a satisfying post-treatment glow—just be cautious with the suction settings and prepare for some redness. Still, it’s worth it for the youthful radiance.
Helpful review: “To say that I like this product would be fair, I am amazed by it! I take very good care of my skin now. In the 80s and 90’s that wasn’t the case. I use RetinA during the less sunny months Incase of any accidental sun exposure. I usually see some of my skin sluf off but very minimal. I used sunless tanning lotion every day of my face and head, I wouldn’t want to look like a horror movie villain. Every single time I use the device I clean it as suggested. When I clean it, my powdery beige stained skin is heaped around the filter. I can actually see my skin that has been removed. That is absolutely amazing! I waited a full month before doing this review as to make sure that it kept working as promised, it has! My one complaint it sometimes my hand hits the button and it pauses while trying to use it. I wish there was a lock feature. But I’m adult, I can turn it back on, no big deal. My face feels like I had a really good pedicure and can breath the next day. Everyone at my salon thinks that I started using a new makeup. That dewy shine is my fresh skin, under my self tanner of course.” – ryan christensen
User review: “I’m 40 years old, with fair skin, and a medical doctor = starting to see age show on my skin (not too bad, but it’s there), fair = somewhat more sensitive skin (to sun etc), and I do have professional knowledge of how the skin works, and what works for the skin.Due to it being somewhat pricey, I hesitated before buying, however I did, and stuck with this one compared to cheaper alternatives after doing some research.And I’m actually IMPRESSED. It’s really turing back years, in a week. I’m still working on enlarged pores on the T-zone, but nothing – having tried masks, scrubs, exfoliation and hydroxy-acids, has ever been as effective as this.I highly recommend it. If used correctly, you will not be disappointed.Tip! Important to use sun-screen at all times when treating your skin this way to prevent excessive pigmentation and spots.” – Orange Monkey
User review: “It’s awesome! It’s not a light, and it doesn’t zap you (ouch no thanks). It works with suction. When it sucks on your face, it brings everything to the surface, which gets the blood flowing in the all the right places to build more collagen and make your skin glow and your pores shrink. You see results right away, but it gets even better over time. I’m 38, and my daughter is 14, and we are both using it and loving it. My 14 year old said it clears up her acne, and I’m firming up my chin, reducing undereye bags, tightening up jowels, and filling in crows feet and mouth lines. It’s super easy to use, you kind of don’t want it to end so quick! I highly recommend! P.S. you need a new filter every time you use it, so buy the extra 100 and everything comes together in the same box.” – Jeannie Thomas
User review: “I purchased this product after searching for a solution to my acne scars. I have systic adult acne and have had many breakouts that left me with pitted looking skin and large pores. After just one use my skin looked amazing! I was skeptical to invest the $$$ because what if it didn’t deliver the results I was hoping for, well this did that and more. My co workers commented on how great my skin looked after just one use! They didn’t even know I used it, they thought I had different make up on. I will post pictures soon. I am 100% satisfied with this purchase and would recommend it.Update: Almost 2 months of use and my skin feels and looks better. It usually takes about 9 months to get very deep scars to shrink down but I have noticed results already.” – Missy Powell
User review: “Update:I was pleasantly surprised when I recieved an email from the company offering to give me a smaller piece to resolve the issue of not being able to get to those hard to reach areas. That is great customer service and impressive! Also I will say that I’ve noticed the more I use the device the more results I get. I literally see the dead skin coming off as I’m using it. To get the absolute best results when you notice this stop and use the bristle brush that’s included to brush off all the gunk or even switch to the 2nd included piece to ensure best results. Last I haven’t had an issue again w the manual mode so that’s even better. I highly recommend this device and as I said previously this was the device that was recommended most when I was searching for a great device.The reason I gave it a 3 is due to the manual setting not working all the time and that it doesn’t work well on all of my nose but I do like this product.When I first tried it the manual setting didn’t work only the auto setting worked. The next time I tried it on manual setting it worked. So that is definitely a major downfall for an expensive product.As for how well it works…I’m not one to just use once or twice and judge it especially when using something I’m not an expert on. So with that being said the first time I used it I didn’t exfoliate well first so it did seem to give ok results. I love exfoliants a lot and believe it or not the best DIY exfoliant to use for good extraction is simply baking soda and charcoal powder mix(I use a vitamin C cleanser or just a little water to make a paste). Now that I use that after cleaning my face w my Mia device I do get good results. Would I say its worth $199 well given that the settings don’t work always I’m on the fence w yes or no and the fact I can never get good suction on the bridge of my nose which is definitely a must do spot for extracting. So I’m not sure if that’s a suction issue or if that part of your nose is just really hard to do. I do like how portable it is and I don’t feel like it is a big process so it’s more encouraging to use that’s for sure.It will give you good results without harsh results as long as you watch videos and take your time it’s not going to scratch your skin up and of course you’re going to be very red after but I love it cuz I know I’ve done a good job. Most important you must finish w a good skin care regimen especially since you’ve gotten the dead skin, clogged pores clean and now your product is able to get down in there much better. I did do a lot of research before buying this product and it was recommended above many others.” – MistyD
User review: “I had tried a number of other devices to improve my skin – being 76 years old, I wanted that sweet, smooth look some old women have. Not to look younger, just better! Every thing I tried made my face look better, but not better enough. I finally swallowed hard and hauled out my credit card and ordered this little gem right here. I was half-afraid to try it. Was it good enough to be worth more than twice what I had paid for others?Well, yes, it was. First time, trying to be very gentle, I got only a slight-but-noticeable result. Next time I bumped it up, and after a few treatments, things were much nicer – smoother, clearer. I am soooo glad to have this little thingie. If you are wondering whether to buy one, and if your face makes you crazy from time to time, or all the time, give it a try. I mean it. It’s great!Just to update, and in case you need an extra boost – because I often think, How many things have I thought were going to give me a lovely complexion, and then they ended up at the bottom of a drawer somewhere, forgotten? Not this baby! Over a year later, I still use it faithfully a couple of times a week and wouldn’t be without it. Note: it has not given me perfect, flawless skin, but the color is even, I don’t break out, that oily shine is gone, and it’s easy to use. My wrinkles are still obvious, but not at all like they were before. It’s quick and easy to use, too.” – The Good Crone
User review: “I will have to post pictures later. I have always taken care of my skin and now in my mid thirties most people think I am in my mid to early twenties. I have been using Korean skin care for a few years now and that has improved my skin a lot. I am always looking for the next thing to kind of kick it up to the next level. For me this is it. Honestly this is my first experience with microdermabrasion so I wasn’t sure what to expect. This device uses a suction via the diamond tip which gets the blood flowing and bring everything to surface. I use the automatic setting which tells you where and how much time to use it. I love this because since this is the first time using something like this I am sure I’d either rush through it or spend way too much time on certain areas. It has two levels of strength so you can go up a level if you find the first isn’t enough for you.Results: I have used this maybe four times since I received it and each time my skin looks so much brighter and the small fine line I had on my forehead has just about disappeared.I love this company and would recommend some of their other products Like:.” – Ashley
7. Microderm GLO MINI Diamond Microdermabrasion and Suction Tool
Highlight: This microdermabrasion device has been a revelation for my skin, delivering professional-level results that rival in-spa treatments.
It’s effective enough to clear years of clogged pores and gentle enough for sensitive post-chemo skin, but remember to go easy on the suction to avoid marks. It’s an investment in your skin that pays off from the first use.
User review: “I tried it on myself and didnt get much out but I had recently done a charcoal mask so I decided to sit my poor boyfriend down and endure. What came out was shocking. YEARS of clogged pores and blackheads getting sucked up by this powerful little thing. Even blackheads that seemed layers deep and he couldnt get out himself. It was so satisfying to watch this suck up sebum and it doesnt hurt. BEWARE that the first time I left a bruise line down my cheek because I held it there too long. I steamed my face and his for 5 minutes for maximum effect and it works much better that way. Whatever this doesnt suck up will be loosened and you can go in with your fingers and squeeze or use a tool. Im not sure about the microderm head but it did seem to be getting dead skin and it looked like microfiber hairs on the stone it was pretty cool. Overall my face felt so much better after using it but the real difference was in my boyfriend’s face, he filled the entire tip and some of the filter with sebum thats how much this thing sucked out, he’s pretty much got a new face. If you have large pores or a lot of blackheads, GET THIS you wont regret it and its much cheaper than constantly visiting the spa. Dont forget to STEAM YOUR FACE or shower with hot water first, many people giving this a negative review are just not using this properly.” – Khalysee
User review: “So far I really like it. I have tried many products over the years and always liked the results I got with microdermabrasion at the spa but it’s far too expensive to keep going. This little device actually does feel like it’s making a difference in my skin. I have only used the microdermabrasion tips twice but my skin feels softer and more smooth already. I have also tried the suction tips. I’m not sure if they actually suck out anything but seems like it might help circulation and it feels like you’re doing something besides waiting for the next time you can do the full treatment. It’s hard to restrain yourself to twice a week! I am glad I bought the smaller size kit. Not only is it less than a single treatment at a spa, but it’s easy to figure out, easy to charge, and comes with a little pouch you can fit everything into for storage or travel. All you do is pop in a filter and the tips are super easy to change. There are two levels of suction and it literally sucks onto your face and you slide it over each area. I’m waiting for the day my pores shrink but until then I do think this helps, if only to get rid of the top layer or dry rough skin. I have sensitive skin and haven’t had any issues.” – Erin
User review: “Let me start by giving you a comparison of skin treatments. My skin is sensitive + dry with blackheads/ large pores being my primary issue with minor red blemishes left over from adolescence.-Dermaroller: I would only recommend if you want your face to look glossy / dewy.-Clarisonic: I would only recommend for cleansing off makeup. Use only the cashmere brush head because I heard the more abrasive ones cause micro-tears on your skin-Dairy free diet totally worked to clear the skin on my back. No more breakouts on my skin but it didn’t repair my existing skin issues.After ONE use with this product, my skin was smoother, softer, and pore size diminished. It’s visible improvement different from other skin care. I’m really glad I didn’t get the cheap copycat vacuums and went for this one. It’s totally worth it.Con: The device I got is like a pale periwinkle lavender color. The box shows white which is what I wanted but I got an off-white leaning towards periwinkle. So my constructive feedback to the manufacturer would be to just make it true white.” – annette828
User review: “I have used this for a week and my skin is already smoother. I have had problems with my skin and it’s complexion and ever since I had chemo. I used to always have nice skin before hand because it’s very sensitive so I can’t use any products with chemicals, nor can I wear makeup. I had severe cystic acne after the chemo and have been struggling with painful spots for now for 5 years. I initially tried on the low suction with the microdermabrasion nozzle and found its gentle enough for my skin even on high suction! My fair has brightened and a LOT of the bumps and blemishes that wouldn’t go away have reduced and or disappeared!! My face is so much smoother as well! I do the abrasion first then go back over with just the suction nozzle since my pours are more open and suck out junk! Absolutely was worth the cost. I also recommend the series with it! It doesn’t agitate my skin at all when most stuff like that would cause more acne problems!” – Sheryl
User review: “Okay this is a early review but I’m so excited. I’ve had professional microderm services in the past. I wish I could afford them on a regular basis but it’s simply not in the budget. I used this one tonight and the end result feels the same as the professional services I’ve had in the past! Okay, obviously I will have to learn to use it better because I did not hold the skin firm enough and I causes a mark on my eye brow area and kind of feel as though I did not do it evenly / missed areas on my face but I suppose I will get better with time. If I were smart I would have tried it on a Friday night but I couldn’t wait. The purchase was a Amazon Prime Day splurge, I’ve been wanting one for a long time and didn’t want to buy a lower level / less expensive machine because I’ve learned certain things you don’t go cheap on and your face is one of them. I really like it, worth the price, get one if you’ve been wanting one. Great power and suction. Excellent results!” – LBW95020
User review: “I wanted to try something new. First time doing microdermabrasion. Mind you my skin is littered with dark pink scars around chin/jawline (have Asian skin,M,24yo) and always getting whiteheads like it’s my birthday.I used the small cone first on the highest setting (blue light) and it does trail red lines but it goes after after 2 mins.After I was done drawing (lol), just before I peaked under the cone to take out the filter, dead skin cells started to flake out. The grey filter was covered in white dead cells. Gross but I couldn’t believe how much it sucked up. Who knew. Anyways, I rinsed with cold water and my skin was soooooooo soft. Crazy. I want to do this everyday now. I’m not sure if it’ll help with scars but it does clean your skins first layer and gets rid of dead cells (which are one of the route causes of clogged pores).I just do face scrubs every shower but I’ll incorporate this into my routine maybe twice a week.No point of inserting pictures because the huge difference can only be depicted under a microscope.What I can tell you is that I rarely write reviews. So I took my time to write this out to the people who don’t want to spend $160 on the pmd microdermabrasion device and can settle for something equally effective:P” – Mr helpful
8. Kelley West Microderm360 Spa Grade, Personal Diamond Microdermabrasion Kit
Highlight: The Microderm360 has become an indispensable tool in my quest for youthful skin, outperforming even professional spa treatments.
It’s surprisingly effective, even for a skincare veteran like me, making every product I use afterward work better and revealing a glowing, refreshed complexion. Just be careful with the suction to avoid any unwanted “hickey” effects!
User review: “Stats:Age- 32Major Skin Concerns- post-acne scarring, excess sebum production, clogged pores and blackheads, fine lines developing around the eyes and “laugh lines,” dull complexionCurrent Skincare Routine- ultrasonic face brush used with “anti-aging” cleanser A.M. and P.M., glycolic toner used in the A.M. and P.M., retinol moisturizer used in the A.M., rosehip seed oil used as a moisturizer in the P.M.Now that I am starting to notice some early signs of aging on my face, I have been doing my dermatology research; hoping to find something effective, affordable, and maintainable, to help improve the tone and texture of my maturing skin. The common consensus… one form or another of EXFOLIATION. Removing the old, dead, lackluster gunk sitting on the surface of your face, to reveal the new glowing “baby skin” beneath. I think my esthetician friend put it best when she said, “You know how gross your feet look and feel when you haven’t had a pedi in a while? Then you finally go in, and there is that mountain of dead foot skin after they pumice your feet… that’s like what has been building up on your face for years!” So gross, but oh so true. Trust me, you want that mountain of dead face skin gone! This is honestly one of the “how did I ever live without this?” type of products. Piling fancy (expensive) skin care lotions and potions on my face has never really given me any significant results, because they were just sitting on the surface. Enter the Microderm360. This tool is like a magic wand that makes every product you apply to your skin, ten times more effective. After my very FIRST USE, my skin had never felt as clean, soft, and smooth, and NEVER looked as clear! Buh-bye blackheads! I was honestly stunned! I have had a few in-office facials and peels, and this at home treatment blew those results out of the water. I do not have sensitive skin, but I used the higher setting and experienced no irritation. The process wasn’t uncomfortable at all, I actually found it incredibly satisfying and rather enjoyed it. Do yourself a favor and buy this before they come to their senses and up the price. The product comes with everything you need to get started, including a little travel bag and a bunch of extra filters. I will include unboxing pics. Read the instruction booklet completely before you begin, and enjoy your new complexion!” – MissQ
User review: “I have been wanting to try an at home microderm system- and for the price I couldn’t pass this up. It arrived and I opened the package, read the directions and tried it out. Holy. BUCKETS!!! The dead skin cells and blackheads that this device got off of my face was shocking! I absolutely love this little machine! SO thankful that it comes with filters with the unit. I can’t wait to try this on the other areas of “concern” on my body!” – Emily B
User review: “A few years ago I bought it for $169.00 at HSN and love it. I was so happy to find it at this price that I am stocking up. Is the best dermabrasion tool I have used. The suction is strong. If you are a beginner go slowly but this one works better than those expensive ones. This is the first time I give a 5 star review.” – Adominguez
User review: “I was a little hesitant to purchase this microdermabrasion machine. I wasn’t sure if it would work for my sensitive skin, and the reviews were all over the place, from loving it, to hating it. I first tried it on my hand, then got brave and tested it on my jawline. The next day there was no irritation, so I decided to give it a try on my face on the lowest setting. Wow!!!!!! I could not believe the results on the lowest setting, my skin felt as smooth as my toddler daughters skin! My skin was slightly red and warm, but that subsided within a few hours. Then the next morning my skin was glowing! The fine lines on my forehead practically diminished. My husband noticed and said my skin looks good, he never ever notices anything! He didnt even notice when I cut 5 inches from my very long hair! So that is saying something!The filter had lots of dead skin cells (sorry, I know gross!). I also had clogged pores on my nose (blackheads), and while it does not unclog everything, it definitely does remove the tops of the blackheads, making it easier for my glycolic acid products to dissolve the clogged pores (on the days I’m not using this). My pores are not only clean now, but smaller too. I use skederm snail mask after I use this machine. This machine helps products penetrate way better, its amazing! The snail mask cools and plumps my skin much better if I use it after this machine. I have quite an amazing skincare routine right now, and my skin has never been smoother, clearer, or softer than it is now. This machine is a big part of my skincare routine now. I’m using it twice a week on the low setting (I can’t wait to work my way up to the higher setting, the results must be stunning!). On the off days I use a glycolic acid facewash and glycolic overnight serum. I use a propolis moisturizer and several face masks in between. I really like to use the skederm snail mask or nip and fab bee sting mask directly after using this machine. I love this thing so much I’m buying my best friend one for her birthday. I paid $30 for this machine, which is shocking, considering I pay more than double that for microderm and facial, and I’m seeing better results at home! I really did not expect these results. I’ve had a great dermatologists for years and have tried everything from prescription Retin-A gel to oral medications, with no results. I don’t really have red zits, but I get blackheads and comeodones. Nothing could get rid of the comeodones, besides using the retin-a gel, which burned and dried my skin out so bad. I’m so glad I’m able to stop using that gel. The glycolic acid along with this machine not only works better, but it doesn’t damage my skin while doing it. My face is now comeodone free! I’m so happy you can just picture me skipping down the street clapping my heels as I go! YES IT’S THAT GOOD!!!” – PlantsandPerfume
User review: “This is the first device I’ve purchased like this, so I have nothing to compare it to. However, I am happy I got it, it does a great job of removing the dead skin cells off my face! It has suction, so you do need to be careful to pull your skin tight as you use this, to keep it from giving you a hickey. lol But I have not had a problem with it and love my fresh skin after using it.” – Steve D
User review: “My friend recommend me this product and I decided to try it. I had microdermabrasion done at the medical spa but it was too expensive for me to get it done regularly and it is not worth it if you get it done once in a while. My friend bought it through HSN but at the time of my purchase, amazon had better deal so I ordered it through amazon. I start using on my face, my husband and my son who has little bit of acne scars. So far I have used it twice and I love love love the result of it. I can see already see my skin glowing, my friends noticed it. Only thing is, this company took few days to ship it out and I didn’t like that. As soon as I received shipment information, it was delivered next day but it took them like 4-5 days to get ready for shipping. It would have been so much better if they were able to ship it out right away. But I am 100% happy with the product so far!” – Happy shopper
User review: “I found this as a special deal here on Amazon. I do everything to keep my skin in good shape, so I thought I’d give it a try. The first time, I was shocked at what had come off of my face! I now use this once a week, do microneedling weekly, masque once a week. It’s a lot of work, but when people take me for my early 40s and I’m coming up on 56, it’s worth it.” – D.M. Hofmann
