The Luxury and Professional Results at Home

Two professional procedures from Plastic Surgery, Dermatology, and Med Spas that have increased in popularity in a wide variety of patients is Microdermabrasion and Laser treatments.

In order to achieve optimum results, these treatments are often sold to patients as a package. Meaning that a patient will purchase 5 laser treatments with 3 microdermabrasion procedures and they will alternate them each week.

When the economy was still going strong many people began taking advantage of spa treatments as a way to keep their skin looking its best and even reversing wrinkles, and early jowling.

The majority of the procedures were Intense Pulsed light (IPL) laser treatments combined with microdermabrasion. These are powerful treatments that are extremely effective in reducing wrinkles, lightening brown spots, and giving a beautiful overall glow to the skin as seen in celebrities. When the economy collapsed, those who were enjoying beautiful flawless skin had to give up their addiction and resort to hiding flaws with makeup.

Fortunately, there are some at home devices that work as well as the professional non invasive lasers when used on a consistent basis. I have tried each one of the products listed here and believe that they are all top quality devices in reversing the signs of aging and reducing uneven pigmentation.


♦♦ At Home Laser Machines


PaloVia- This is by far the best product on the market for reversing wrinkles and loose skin. It mimics a real IPL machine. The only drawback is the cost. It sells for $499, but can sometimes be found for a little less on Amazon or eBay. When one takes into account that a series of IPLs at the spa would come to double that amount it is not so bad though. It stimulates the skin deep down and causes it to produce more collagen. The procedure does not hurt, and the results are cumulative. You will see a difference in one week, and after four weeks people will be complimenting your skin. It works and it works very well.

Quasar Photorejuvenation Light Therapy, Red - Skin rejuvenating system that helps aging skin, freckles, and brown patches. It is the cost of 2 laser treatments at a med spa. For those who want the look noticeably younger without going into debt, this is a very impressive product.

NuFace by Trinity- This product can feel slightly uncomfortable but does deliver results. It stimulates collagen deeply in the skin without harming the outer layer. The principal is very much like PaloVia only it takes longer to see the results and the results don't seem to be as intense.

Eye Zone Lifting Massager. Micro-mini Current. Battery Operated. Delivers a low electrical current that stimulates collagen and delivers a younger, fresher look. This device is the most portable and affordable of the collagen stimulating devices. The results are not as dramatic as Quasar Red Light Therapy or PaloVia, but with regular use it does deliver significant results and works in a similar way as NuFace, which is more than double its price.


♦♦ Home Microdermabrasion Machines


Kendal Professional Diamond Microdermabrasion Machine HB-SF01 - A powerful resurfacing tool that improves tone, texture, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. This microdermabrasion device has a suction that lightly passes over the surface of the skin while beating the top layer with tiny crystals that lift away dead skin cells. It feels exactly like a professional treatment.

Nubrilliance - Makes skin smoother and softer while diminishing freckles, age spots and fine lines. This amazing device allows us to get the exact same results as we would from a professional spa. It delivers the most dramatic results on teenagers who need extra cleaning in order to eliminate acne, and people in their 30s and 40s who are just beginning to notice the sings of aging. A great way to keep skin salon perfect is to use this in conjunction with one of the at home lasers, as is often done in expensive salons.

Other Facial devices.....

1.0mm Micro Needle Roller Skin Care Therapy Dermatology System- A derma roller is a small device that has fine needles on a roller that when passed over the surface of the skin will help stimulate collagen, though not as deeply as the laser devices, to produce brighter skin with fewer wrinkles. It does not exactly hurt, but it feels uncomfortable when rolling the fine needles over the face. It does deliver results and if one has a laser this can be used to help keep up the results while on vacation, or can be used until ready to make the purchase of a PaloVia or Quaser Red Light Therapy device.

      Skarlet....Very interesting. These products, although a bit pricey, seem to be a great investment. As you say, Having regular treatments at a salon can get to be quite expensive. A single purchase seems the better choice.

      Considering the amount of time and money a woman will spend through the years to rejuvenate and maintain her appearance, these in-home devices make sense.

      Wonderful research and description of these products. UP++

      Thank you fpherj48,

      I actually believe that something like this is a better investment than all the creams that so many women use. At least there is a visible difference.

      This is a great hub and will help to save money for those of us who cannot afford the spa treatments. I do like the idea of being able to have these special treatments at home. It would make it convenient and allow you to save time. Great topic and well done. Voted up.
