DermaTx Microdermabrasion Brighten System Review
DermaTx Microdermabrasion Brighten System

I have recently been given the opportunity to review this award winning DermaTx Microdermabrasion System*. You can choose one of three creams with each a different purpose: Brighten to even the skintone, Clarify containing 2% salicylic acid for acne-prone oily skin, and Rejuvenate with antioxidants for normal to sensitive skin. I chose Brighten which contains SabiWhite, to correct hyperpigmented freckles and uneven skin tone, a result of years of sun exposure.

DermaTx Microdermabrasion Brighten Cream is a mild exfoliant with tiny aluminium oxide crystals. It contains SabiWhite (tetrahydrocurcumin), an extract derived from turmeric used to bleach and de-pigment the skin. See this article for further information on SabiWhite. This cream also contains Vitamin A that has many beneficial effects on the skin.

This microdermabrasion set also contains the DermaTx Facial Tool that provides small vibrating micro-pulses. At first I was a little let down as I was expecting a rotating motion as opposed to an electric toothbrush-like action, but I realise the massaging vibrating motion gently recruits blood and growth factors to improve the skin texture. It has two interchangeable heads: one cleansing brush head and one exfoliating foam (spongy) head. These both act to improve the microdermabrasion process.

This system hasn't irritated my skin with a twice weekly use and helps to remove dry dead skin cells at the surface aiding the skin's renewal process. My skin instantly feels smoother and brighter, although it is perhaps too early to tell whether my freckles have lightened.

I would recommend using this at night, after firstly cleansing the skin with a mild cleansing milk. For daytime it is important to use sunscreen to protect newly exposed skin.

If you have acne or open broken skin, I would advise to stay away from this as the grains may aggravate and worsen the skin. I would also not recommend using daily use as constant friction may paradoxically thicken the skin (as its normal protective response).

This set requires two AA batteries and is perfect for traveling and jet-setting individuals.

Overall I do enjoy using this DermaTx Microdermabrasion Brighten System. This set is available from at £70, which is cheaper than purchasing the DermaTx Brighten Microdermabrasion Cream (£39) and DermaTx Facial Tool (£40) sold separately. Although admittedly not an essential to my skincare routine, I would recommend it for those who enjoy exfoliating and as a gentler alternative to more expensive professional-grade microdermabrasion treatments in salons.
