Microderm GLO (Review and Before/After photos)

Having perfect skin is no longer rocket science. And Microderm GLO is the absolute proof.

Over 80000 people already tried the portable handheld microdermabrasion kit. The revolutionary technology is developed and produced in the USA, it is also FDA-registered, unlike most beauty machines, intended for at-home skin treatment.

What is Microderm GLO?

Microderm GLO is a diamond skin resurfacing machine, intended for weekly use. The technique is proven to reduce pore size, improve complexion, fade fine lines and wrinkles, and soften the skin. The system uses a patented Diamond Safe 3D suction technology to prevent any side effects, following your treatment and guarantee you a pleasant experience.

This skin exfoliating machine is safe for all skin types, including the most delicate ones. The method provides a healthier and more youthful appearance even after the first 2-3 sessions. The anti-aging effect of the treatment comes as a result of eliminating the superficial layer of the skin, which is formed by dead skin cells, sebum and debris. You’ll be amazed by how brighter and smoother your skin looks like in no time.

How does Microderm GLO work?

MIcroderm Glo is a chargeable machine that works by removing the outermost layer of the skin using a light abrasion process. This process of 3-leveled vacuum suction uncovers a fresh skin layer, which is brighter and smoother and collagen and elastin production are instantly improved so that the skin can regain its’ optimal function. Collagen makes up almost 80% of the skin and is found in the middle layer called the dermis. It works in conjunction with elastin, to give skin its firmness and elasticity when stretched.

4 minuter a week is all you need to enjoy healthier and younger-looking skin. The cordless MDA machine allows you to easily control the exfoliation process and treat those hard to reach areas around the nose and the chin. You can control the intensity of the peeling using the different settings of the machine and can choose tip heads with different coarseness, according to your skin needs.

Make sure your microdermabrasion kit is clean before each use. Start the initial microdermabrasion session on the lowest setting.

Brace your skin with your free hand and start doing short, even strokes. For the area around the nose, you can use the precision tip.

Once you’ve finished exfoliating, make sure you carefully cleaned your device (you can soak the tips in alcohol or sonicator (jewelry cleaner) after each use and replace the filter used).
