I Tried At-Home Microdermabrasion and This is What Happened to My Skin

CurrentBody Online Beauty Editor, Chloe, tells us how TrophySkin changed her skin and improved her bank balance.

For as long as I can remember I’ve had rough, un-even, blotchy and blemish-prone skin, the list goes on. I’m always one for trying to solve my skincare woes at the salon, with the latest facial and technology that promises to banish away all you concerns. So when I stumbled across microdermabrasion in my local haunt a few years ago, I knew I had to give it a go. I couldn’t believe the results, they were pretty much instant and just got better with the more sessions I have. But that was the issue right there, I had to keep booking these costly and time consuming appointments to maintain my newly clear skin. That’s when I embarked on a search for an at-home device I could use, to save my bank balance and the hours I’ve spent lying in the salon.

I quickly found the TrophySkin Mini device after reading all the five star reviews and with it being only a little more than one, yes ONE, salon microdermabrasion appointment, I thought I had nothing to lose.

This salon-standard device combines diamond-tipped exfoliation with gentle suction to buff away dull skin. The soothing treatment increases circulation to the epidermis layer of the skin, rebuilding your natural stores of collagen and elastin. It’s just a 5-minute session too, so you can effortlessly exfoliate your skin and invigorate your complexion without wasting away hours in a salon. Plus, it’s suitable for use on all skin types, including those with the most sensitive skin, mine included.

The TrophySkin Mini has two settings, low and high. I use the low setting on delicate areas like my cheeks and around my eye and the higher setting on my forehead, nose, chin, jaw and neck. You can also treat your chest. I used to get horrible spots under my jaw and on my chest but the TrophySkin has sloughed away all the dead skin that was building up and causing those spots.

The icing on the cake is seeing the filter once you have completed your treatment. You may think your skin is cleansed and clear of any product, but just wait until you see the gunk that comes off your skin after just 5 minutes, it’s so satisfying.

I know it’s working because my boyfriend even said my skin looked nice and I wasn’t wearing make up and he’s not one to even notice when I’ve had a haircut.
