Review: MicrodermMD by Trophy Skin



Microderm MD by Trophy Skin
At home Microdermabrasion system
$299 (and worth every penny)


I promised to follow up with my experience and a review of my Trophy Skin MicrodermMD home microdermabrasion system.  I am not a handy Girl, and when I first received a large somewhat heavy package, I momentarily panicked. Was this going to be a complicated system and was I in over my head, before I even got started??? Big Gulp.

My fears were completely unfounded. MicrodermMD is rather compact and there is NOTHING complicated about it.  I anticipated having to rev it up for a few hours before using it, but nope!

To my delight you plug it in, hit the power switch and you are good to go.

So what is MicrodermMd  all about?  I think it's best if you read the description from Trophy Skin and then I will weigh in with my experience using it:

The MicrodermMD by Trophy Skin is a revolution in at-home skincare, for the first time offering a professional grade microdermabrasion device that can be used at home. The MicrodermMD offers a fast, gentle, and extremely effective microderm treatment delivered in the comfort of your own home.

Our device offers 5 power levels of exfoliation, so you can choose your comfort level and get the best possible skin exfoliating treatment depending on the area of the face or body you are treating. The MicrodermMD allows you to experience the same professional quality treatment offered by Salons, Spas, and Dermatologist offices in the comfort and convenience of your own home.

The MicrodermMD is a natural diamond tipped device that is 100% Crystal free, meaning there is no mess or cleanup time needed when using the device. You simple turn on the device and apply the diamond tipped exfoliating wand directly to the skin. A 5-10 minute treatment a few times per week is all that is needed to achieve glowing, radiant skin.

The MicrodermMD works by gently and powerfully exfoliating the top 3-5 layers of outer dermis, removing dead skin and the soon-to-be dead skin beneath. This causes the rebirth of collagen and elastin, giving the skin a smooth and glowing appearance. Over time, these home microdermabrasion treatments reduce the fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and brown spots on the face and body. Uneven skin tone and texture will gradually become smooth and uniform, just like getting a microderm at a professional Spa or Salon.

OK, I think it is helpful that I have had microdermabrasion treatments several times, because, like riding a bicycle, the technique and amount of pressure that was used came right back. Nonetheless,
the instructions are simple to understand and follow.  As instructed, I first cleansed my face.

I did start off on the lowest setting, but since my skin is thick and hearty, (not to mention use to quite a bit of beauty "handling"), I notched it up to the second highest setting, which for my skin, was not the least bit uncomfortable.

It felt identical to professional treatments I received (sans the painful one) and when I finished my entire face about 6 minutes later, I again cleansed and toned my face.  If I had been going out, I would have used a moisturizer with SPF as directed.

Each kit comes with 100 filters that should be changed after each use and the diamond tip applicator should be cleaned with soap, water and the brush that is included.

My skin INSTANTLY looked brighter and smoother and and the morning, I woke up GLOWING.

MicrodermMD also comes with a special tip that is best used for extracting blackheads and oily sebum around the chin area. They recommend doing this on separate days, so I will be trying this on another night. It is also perfectly safe to use Microderm MD on your neck, decollete chest and other areas, so you know I will basically be doing my whole body!

Here is a link to Frequently Asked Questions about Trophy Skin's Microdermabrasion MD.

Just like the Clarisonic, perhaps even more so, this is truly a fabulous, quality product, that will pay for itself in two uses.  You can look forward to diminished age spots, fine lines, a more even texture and glowing skin. I couldn't be more excited about a beauty product that I know is a proven anti-ager and I am thrilled I had a chance to share my experience with my readers.

  3. It is Ladies!
    Im ecstatic about it. I can't believe I get to do this in the privacy of my home twice a week. I already see freckles fading and my skin looks amazing, even to my eye. I have read reviews on other less expensive home Microdermabrasion systems and nothing compares To MicrodermMD. You get what you pay for! I have linked it through my Amazon Holy Grails at the top right corner. If you purchase it PLEASE let me know if you are as happy as I am...I bet you will be!!!

  4. Have looked into this further after reading your review and have seen more and more publicity and information on it--all with very honest/positive reviews.

  5. Also, took a look at your review on Amazon.com and that is great! It says I have to have already purchased a product on the site to comment on it :( Otherwise I would have shared my love for DD, as well as my peaked interest in this incredible product!

  6. Thank you kindly for your nice words about my reviews.

    Honestly, I am in LOVE with this product! Not only does my face look more radiant but I am using it on my hands and decollete...anywhere where I have a sun spot and after three weeks they are nearly gone. I think this is such a great investment! We wear are faces everyday! $300 is just another frock in rotation.

  7. Debbi-thank you so much for telling your readers about this. I wound up purchasing one after reading your incredible review (so detailed!!!) and I am obsessed. You are right, its worth every single penny. My daughter (who has perfect skin by the way, I miss my youth) wanted to try it too. I thought she was just being crazy and let her try it. I have to say, her skin is GLOWING. She always had great skin but this really made it flawless. I would recommend this to woman of all ages (and men too). Thanks again Debbi for the info!

  8. I saw this microdermabrasion machine on HauteLook for $199.00 and on a whim I purchased as it said it retailed for $300 so I thought it was a great deal. I am so glad I did I love this machine! My skin is getting better and better as the weeks go by, I have a fairly large red acne mark on my forehead that is slowly but surely fading! HauteLook has had this machine by trophy skin for sale at least one more time since I purchased it so if you want to get one keep checking with HauteLook everyday for the sale! Worth every penny!! Even my hubby uses for blackheads on his nose.

  9. WoW !!! Lucky you and thank you for sharing that tip with my readers. I use it once a week on my face, neck and decollete and on random spots all over my body. It takes 10 minutes. The results are fantastic!!! This is definitely my anti aging fave of the year. I tell all my friends and I see they hedge about the $300, but honestly, they wouldnt hesitate to spend double that on a pair of shoes that they will probably wear once every two weeks. We wear our face everyday :)!!! To me, its a no brainer.

    Enjoy!!!
