Trophy Skin MicrodermMD Detailed Review

Microderm MD is the name of Trophy Skin’s innovative home appliance, intended for deep skin exfoliation and rejuvenation. The home microdermabrasion kit provides professional-grade peeling, very similar to the procedure in beauty salons. Consider it a simplified and way more convenient version.

Trophy Skin Microderm MD is intended to use at the convenience of your own home, you no longer need to pay dozens of dollars for a single session, not to mention the time you are saving when you have your own machine.

How will Trophy Skin MicrodermMD help your skin?

You’ll be impressed by the multiple benefits you get when using your MicrodermMD. The only thing to remember is to use the machine on a regular basis because the optimal results are cumulative.

At first, you’ll only see how the uppermost skin layer is removed and the skin complexion appears fresher and more healthy-looking. That happens because MicrodermMD eliminates the dead skin cells, accumulated on the skin surface along with dirt, makeup residue, and sebum, clogging your pores.

After a couple of sessions, you’ll be able to appreciate the real purpose of this home MDA machine. Let’s assume you are using the microderm machine once a week. This means that each week you’ll cause a small amount of trauma to your skin, resulting in immediate repair-mode but in a more organized fashion. The natural body response is to produce newly formed skin cells to replace the ones that were exfoliated.

The epidermal layer starts transforming and becomes thicker following the rapid skin cell production. The skin looks plump and supple as a result.

Microdermabrasion procedures increase the number of collagen fibers, which become plumper and better organized. Logically, after the skin is being deeply exfoliated, the number of fibroblasts, the cells that produce collagen, also increases.

The same refers to the number of elastic fibers and these are very important if you can see signs of skin aging. When the skin is more elastic, it becomes less prone to wrinkle formation and sagging.

Another benefit of microdermabrasion is that skin imperfections become less visible within a couple of procedures. This is how in-depth exfoliation works. If you have acne scars, pigment spots, fine lines, even freckles, they will gradually fade over time.

As a result of the MDA procedures, you’ll enjoy a youthful, blemish-free appearance, making minimal efforts.

Consumer reviews

If you do some research, you’ll see that there are websites, presenting 100% positive comments. Unfortunately, this is rarely possible, especially when it comes to products, providing different results for everyone. And the explanation is quite simple – everyone’s skin is unique and reacts in a different way.

This is the reason why we decided to show you a summary of the Amazon reviews where there are critical reviews as well.

Around 70% of consumers consider their purchase an excellent beauty investment, comparing it to the professional salon procedures.

A lady, who received  her Trophy Skin MicrodermMD as a gift seems very impressed about the amount of dirt and dead skin cells extracted after a single procedure:

I’ve also attached a picture from what was extracted from my face using the extraction tool.

Below you can see a picture of a woman who believes the effect is just like the salon sessions, only cheaper.

It’s amazing. Just like the salon mashine.

You can find lots of positive reviews regarding Trophy Skin’s customer service – an important aspect when you are purchasing online:

I love my MicrodermMD and have had it for over two years. I use it regularly. One piece broke and I called to see about the cost of a replacement piece. No hassle…. no questions….. the lady I spoke with said she would send me a replacement piece out the next day free of charge and free of a shipping fee.

On the other hand, there are a couple of pretty disturbing reviews you don’t want to neglect

A reviewer shared that she’s not completely satisfied with this purchase:

Really cheap feeling product that I felt could break within six months of use.

Another one shares that the MDA machine received was already used, which is indeed unacceptable.

 The cover had scratches, the inside container had black particles looking like small hairs.

Final thoughts

If you put aside a couple of negative comments, you’ll probably want to purchase MicrodermMD right away, having that you get a professional in-depth exfoliation for the price of 2-3 salon procedures.

Compared to similar microdermabrasion devices on the marker, Trophy Skin’s MDA machine is specialized in performing well but without irritating the epidermal skin or causing discomfort.

The price of MicrodermMD is average – for instance, Microderm GLO has the same price but provides lower vacuum suction. Microderm GLO Mini version is a bit cheaper, provides semi-professional effect but it’s portable, which is a plus, in case you tend to travel more.
