Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion

Description

Magnesium oxide crystals polish away dead skin cells leaving skin radiant. These diamond shaped crystals exfoliate evenly without scratching or irritating the skin while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and improving the overall texture of the skin.

Benefits:

  • Enhances the penetration of other treatment products.
  • Visibly smoothes and refines, leaving your skin radiant.
  • Helps clear acne prone skin and improves scars.
  • Ideal for the face, arms hands and neck.

Tips:

  • Skin naturally exfoliates more slowly as we age, so regular exfoliation is an important step in maintaining age-less skin.
  • Exfoliate your skin with dr. brandt microdermabrasion before applying your self tanner to ensure even color distribution.
  • Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion will also treat keratosis pilaris (tiny bumps in back of arms). Follow up with pore effect twice a day.

By far the best microderm

5

I have never gotten a microderm treatment from a dermatologist/aesthetician, and now it appears I will never need to! This does the trick. I have naturally combo-to-oily skin, however, as I've recently started using an Rx retinoid cream, my skin has changed to dry, flakey, and irritated. As I patiently stick with the retinoid, it is great to know there is a treatment I can use that helps with the above issues while not adding to them. While this is an extremely effective product, it is not harsh. I do only use it about once a week because of the Rx, but I think a person with normal skin could (and should!) use it much more frequently. It leaves skin glowing, radiant, lightly hydrated and prepped to add the next step in your routine. Cannot live without this. I was a little surprised at the price (as I'm used to using regular exfoliants, which are much less expensive), but a pea-sized amount does the entire face and of course costs much less than a professional treatment. I'm so pleased with this purchase, and will continue to use.

Gets rid of milia!

4

I have had a problem with milia for years and nothing has been able to get rid of it - till now! I really like this product, because it works. It does last a long time because you only need a little for each use, but the price is still a bit high.

Best physical exfoliator

5

I've been using this product for years. It's even better now that it's in a tube instead of a jar. It's so good because there are tons of scrubbing beads. I find that most don't have enough.

A little goes a long way!

5

This product seems expensive, but it takes just a tiny drop to exfoliate your entire face. When I am finished, I rub the product off my face with my hands and exfolliate my hands too! My face feels and looks great! Wonderful product. I will purchase again.

Wow

I've only had this a few weeks but so far I love it, my skin is very smooth, makeup goes on and stays on better. it's pricey but much cheaper than weekly facials which sometimes irritate my skin anyway.

other things work much better

I had to return this. It just didn't do much of anything. I was so bummed when Neutrogena stopped making their over-the-counter cream. Didn't realize what I had until it was gone! Read all the reviews and tried this. Useless. Ended up the the $180 machine and it's great! Read my review over there.

great even for sensitive skin!

5

I have Rosacea (although not half as bad as others; I usually just need Metrogel at night to be fine), and I can still exfoliate with this stuff -- it is pricey, but I keep buying it because it helps get the skin flakes off (it almost feels like scratching an itch), but I never have issues with breaking out or redness...

A Truly Great Product

5

I was a little skeptical based on the high price tag, but it's well worth it. This is a great microscrub, that gives smooth and amazing results. My skin looks great now that I've started using it twice a week.

Smoother skin

5

This product is one of the many Dr Brandt fabulous products I have used. The fine grain white cream goes on really easy and a little goes a long way (this size lasted me almost one year) It is so nice to use before going out and it makes your makeup go on smoother. It definitely takes away all the dead skin cells - you can see the white product turn to beige as it removes the dead skin cells - amazing results -my pores disappear and my skin looks clearer.

Effective but harsh

2

Very effective, but lacks any subtlety or finesse - very harsh. May be OK for summer, will wear your skin out in winter though. Note: I think it's been reformulated since I used, may be better now. But the Michelle Copeland microderm MUCH better at slightly more than half the cost.

not that great

1

This is not the best. It's almost the same as Dr Donnell microdermabrasion scrub. but dr brandt is way more expensive than dr donnell. If you guys want a microdermabrasion for home use. Try Lancome. It is the best and feels just like having it done at the spa. It's pricey, but you pay the same amount compare to dr brandt. Dr brandt is over priced and not that great at all.

Works great. The key is is its moisturizing cream formula. I think the diamond shape magnesium oxide crystals is the same as other products' magnesium oxide crystals.

This is hands-down my favorite skin product. I use this once a week (Sunday nights, so I start the week FRESH!) and my skin is incredibly smooth. It absolutely does what it claims, and I will always have a jar of this on hand.

I think maybe I had too high of an expectation. It's fine as an exfoliant but it didn't "boost" the effects of any other products that I use. It's too pricey for what it does.

Life Saver

5

I live in NYC and my skin flakes terribly in the dry, cold winter months. Dr. Brandt's Microdermabrasion is a lifesaver because it smoothes my skin, gets rid of the flaking, and doesn't make me red. The refined smooth feel of the microdermabrasion feels nice against my skin unlike other brands which are harsh and make my skin red and irritated. Although it's pricey, it does the trick and I can't live without it!

This product is the real thing. I am 53 and have purchased many microdermabrasion products, but none are as effective as this one. I have been a Retin-A user for many years and it has been hard to find products that are compatible with this product. My skin is smooth and glowing after only one application. I am impressed. It is worth the money if good skin is important to you.

A man's point of view

5

There are very few reviews written by men. So here's mine. I'm am 31 and it may seem strange that a younger man would be writting a review of this product. I have been seeing a dermatologist since I was 18. At first for acne and then later to keep my skin in good shape. I have used tons of products from NV Perricone MD, Kinerase, Skinceuticals, Skin Medica, Glytone system, Obagi system, and more. This is by far the best skin care line I have come across. I started using it when I was 25. I wanted smoother, firmer skin without looking "done" or feminine. I didn't have fine lines, or wrinkles or dry spots or any other aging issues. I can honestly say I haven't aged since I started using these products 6 years ago. I am a high school teacher and most guests to the school think I am a senior. I still get carded regularly. I am a coach, am in the sun often, and all of my students think I'm in my early 20's. If you want to maintain your youth and don't have to "combat" anything that has developed with time this is what I have found to truely work and it can all be purchased on this site: MD Forte Cleanser III, MD Forte Facial Lotion III at night (rejuvination lotion III is good when I visit family up north where it's cold), 2-3 times a week I use Dr. Brandt's microdermabrasion in a jar, and finally Skinmedica's illuminating eye cream and TNS recovery complex in the morning. I still go to the beach regularly and am lazy about using sunscreen and my dermatologist says to keep up whatever I am doing. Trust me you will not age if you use these products!!! No joke!

fantastic

love it does everything in 2 minutes. I had dull skin before using this product , not any more. My skin is dry and peels in the winter. I had one acne scare on my and now its gone. I normally would breakout with one or two pimples per month and i had alot of white haeads before using this product , but now my face is smooth ,soft and glowing no more whiteheads and scrubbing my face to get rid of them.This product also helps other products to penatrate your skin to have clearer skin faster. I also use pore effect and I haven't had one pimple since. I have been using this product for about 3weeks now. I will buy this product again.

I'm so used to products not doing *anything* that I was shocked by how well this one worked! I use it twice a week and even though it's expensive and takes awhile to get to Canada it's well worth the price and wait! If only all products delivered like Dr. Brandt microdermabrasion!

The Bomb

Does everything in two minutes. Gets all the dead skin off. Feels abrasive when you are using it, but NO RED after. No irritation. Super-efficient. I love this product. My face feels so clean. After using this is the time you can a) baby your skin, b) do a mask, or c) hit it with the treatment you need most.

Excellent Product

5

I've used many facial scrubs and I've had quite a few microdermabrasion treatments (both spa and professional doctor office's). I think this product rivals the feel of a spa microdermabrasion session. It is worth the price when you consider the cost of a spa session!

soft skin

I'm 44 with oily, acne prone skin w/large pores. This product does a good job of exfoliating to keep pores clean. I've seen a reduction in black heads, but still get lots of the pus filled white heads. My skin feels polished and make-up goes on more evenly. Does not reduce scars and definitely is not as good as real microdermabrasion. I've used it for 2 months 2x a week.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I HAVE HORRIBLE HYPERPIGMENTATION FROM ACNE. I HAVE ONLY USED THIS STUFF 3 TIMES AND I CAN SEE MY SKIN IMPROVING. I'D SEEN AN IMPROVEMENT WITH THE RETINOL MOISTURIZER I WAS USING, BUT ONCE I NCORPRATED THE BI-WEEKLY USE OF THE MICRODERMABRASION IT DRAMATICALLY IMPROVED.

I have been using this for about 18 months now and won't use anything else. I've tried them all and this is far superior in every way. It leaves the skin silky soft and smooth enabling it to better absorb products and looking better and clearer. This is really worth a try, the price tag is totally worth it.

I have been using this product for a few months and absolutely love it. My face is so soft and stays soft between sessions, as I use it twice a week. My face is more even toned and my pores are barely noticeable. I love this product and would recommend it to anyone. I even have sensitive skin but had no issues using this product! Being a product junkie, I have tried many micro-dermabrasions and this by far is the best. A MUST HAVE!

I'v been using this product now for over 4 months ( on my 2nd bottle)... I have acne scars and very oily skin. This product has helped smooth out my acne scars. I started doing microdermabrasion and I still use this product in between sessions. It has helped out even more. I also recommend using Pore Effect and Poreless moisturizer. You will not be disappointed. The prices are high but believe me are well worth the money.

I like the way my skin feels after I have used this product, especially if you use this and then a masque. The only thing I don't like about it is it takes a little while to get all the crystals washed off. Definately, worth the feel of my skin though.

I've tried other microdermabrasion kits and scrubs by different brands,and nothing came close to this one.It smells amazing(like lemons),the grains are smaller than those of other brands(which means no irritation),and it left my face softer than a baby's butt and positively glowing!Excellent for combo/oily skin with a tendency towards blackheads and breakouts.I agree with the woman who recommends Pore effect,a heavy-duty nighttime cream geared towards oily skin.A+!

I never thought I would spend this kind of money on a facial product, but I can tell from the way my skin looks and feels after just a few weeks of using this that it is well worth the $$. I am in my 60s, and I only wish I had discovered this 40 years ago! It works so well that I even started using it on my hands, arms, and shoulders. I would definitely recommend that first-time users be sure to have their face thoroughly wet before circling in the grapefruity lotion into their skin.

I like to use it along w/ Pore Effect

4

I recommend using Pore Effect first to clear up and calm down your acne, and after that use Microdermabrasion in a Jar along with Pore Effect and you will see your skin clear up in no time flat. My skin is very oily, chemically sensitive, and was moderately acne-prone and nothing worked for me gently and with long term results, until I used these! If you have mild acne you can use the scrub right away but for people with worse cases of acne that is NOT the case. They should use Pore Effect first and foremost. When you use Microdermabrasion in a Jar you must follow the directions to the letter on the outside of its box.

I alternate this product with MD Skincare's Alpha Beta peels very few days and my skin is excellent now. I have been using this for about 6 months and my skin tone is much more even, seemingly poreless, and completely clear!!!! The crystals are so fine that you don't have to worry about potential damage, like you do with cheaper scrubs...a little goes a long way, so it is worth the money!!
