Microdermabrasion is a fast way to rejuvenate the skin. By removing the rougher, dryer outer layer, fine lines and wrinkles can be tightened, acne and blackheads treated, and a more youthful appearance achieved.
Repeat trips to the beauty salon for microdermabrasion can get very expensive, very quickly. Luckily, there are at home microdermabrasion kits you can use to keep yourself looking young and vital without the cost.
Here are our picks for the 11 best at home microdermabrasion kits.
11 Best At Home Microdermabrasion Kits
We’ll start with a simple microdermabrasion kit without too many bells and whistle.s
The Kelley West Microderm360 is designed to be used from head-to-toe. It includes two microdermabrasion tips, one fine, one coarse, to treat different areas. The fine tip is used for the face, while the coarse tip is used for the body and feet.
Its name derives from the swivel head design that allows easy access and microdermabrasion of all parts of the body.
Power is drawn from a power cable with a generous lead that will suit most bathrooms, and the whole assembly comes in a neat carrying kit.
- Easy to use
- Exfoliates the whole body
- Convenient swivel head for harder to reach areas
- Slightly less convenient needing the cable
- Minimal settings
The Reddhoon portable digital microdermabrasion pen is a convenient microdermabrasion tool to have at home or take travelling.
A step up from the Kelley West kit, the Reddhoon comes with three microdermabrasion heads and five vacuum heads for greater control and more functionality.
This pen can be used to treat
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
It comes in a convenient travel case with instructions and a supplied power cable.
- Multiple heads allow for different functionalities and uses
- Convenient carry case
- Not much cable length
This is another of the simpler options, but comes with an at home serum to use with the microdermabrasion tool.
Like the Reddhoon pen, the Pulsaderm diamond microdermabrasian system comes with three heads for greater versatility. A key difference is the construction here is much sturdier than the other two, with a decent vacuum force to remove dead cells.
The post-treatment skin serum is intended to restore and protect skin after you’ve finished removing the damaged outer layers. Combined with the microdermabrasion tool, it actually makes your skin more receptive to your favorite skincare products, increasing their effectiveness.
- Solid construction
- Longer lasting
- Multiple microdermabrasion heads
- Not many features for the high price point
This fantastic microdermabrasion vacuum handle comes with multiple heads and functionalities for a complete beauty regime.
The kit comes with four heads for different functions:
- Microcrystal exfoliating head
- Blackhead remover
- Blue light therapy head
- Fine lines smoother head
The microcrystal exfoliating head and fine lines smoother head will give you the smoother, softer skin you’re after. As you work, the vacuum handle removes all of the exfoliated skin so you don’t have to worry about any unpleasant cleanup.
Once you’ve replenished your skin, you can clear up blackheads with the included special head before sanitizing your face with the blue light therapy. The blue light is calibrated to kill germs and disease, preventing bacteria that cause acne and blackheads.
- Rechargeable handle with no need for batteries.
- Different suction levels for greater control.
- Be careful with suction strength, as it can leave bruising after use.
Microderm GLO offers a range of microdermabrasion products.
This premium bundle kit includes their high-tech microdermabrasion tool plus a peptide complex serum for the best results you could hope for.
The microdermabrasion tool is wireless, with settings controlled by convenient buttons on the handle. You can control the intensity of the session with up and down arrows, and a handy LCD display screen provides useful information and instruction.
The Peptide Complex Serum is designed to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin after the microdermabrasion session. It promotes the generation of collagen in the skin, making it firmer and plumper. It soothes, moisturizes, and protects the skin from infection that couldl ead to blackheads and acne.
Combining the two together in one premium bundle will help you “take 10 years off your age”!
- Perfect bundle to exfoliate and replenish the skin
- Multi function
- Wireless operation
- Wireless charging station, removing the need for batteries
- Designed specifically for the face, so no full body exfoliating options
This feature-rich kit from UNOISETION might look a bit daunting at first, but all those accessories have a purpose.
The diamond microdermabrasion kit has three primary functions: facial scru, vacuum for blackhead removal, and spray function for skin moisturizing.
There are 9 shaped diamond heads designed to be used on different parts of the body. Different sizes allow you to treat large and small areas for greater control, ideal for tackling fine lines and wrinkles as well as cheeks and forehead.
Three different glass vacuum tubes add to the level of control you can get over removing your blackheads, and there are two special spray bottles for post-dermabrasion moisturizing.
- Wealth of accessories for precise full-body microdermabrasion
- Moisturizing spray functionality
- Vacuum level won’t cause bruising
- Sturdy construction
- Vacuum may be weaker than expected
- Included instructions don’t let you know how to properly use all included features
Like we said before, Microderm GLO has a range of microdermabrasion offerings available. This is their mini kit, similar to the more robust kit above but with fewer features and controls.
The LCD display screen and control buttons are gone, replaced with a single on/off button. The overall size of the unit is also reduced, hence the name.
However, the quality of the skin rejuvenation on offer is not reduced. The product still packs a significant punch, and this bundle includes the Peptide Complex Serum for total skin care results.
- Peptide serum greatly enhances the rejuvenating effects of treatment
- Excellent construction
- Small and portable
- Does lack many of the useful features of the bigger model
- Awkward shape
Crystalift’s at-home Microdermabrasion vacuum works by sand-blasting your skin with fine particles, then vacuuming up the particles and dead skin.
This is similar to how salon microdermabrasion sessions work. By placing the head of the appliance firmly against the skin, you get an even removal of wrinkles, acne, sun damage and fine lines.
The unit includes three refills, and each packet is enough to cover your whole face. Refills are easily available and quite affordable — much more than getting a weekly microdermabrasion at a salon.
- Excellent microdermabrasion technique
- Good removal of blemishes and lines
- Convenient design
- Particles can end up everywhere if not careful
- Particle use not as efficient as desired
Ixaer promises non-surgical skin resurfacing with their diamond at-home microdermabrasion machine.
This is another 3-in-1 system designed to resurface skin, remove blackheads, and revitalize after you’ve finished. The set includes 9 microdermabrasion heads and three vacuum heads. One head/vacuum combination is specifically designed for fine lines and wrinkles, allowing you to get into sensitive areas such as around the eyes.
Vacuum intensity is user-controllable so you don’t have to worry about bruising after use.
- Versatile 3-in-1 design
- Controllable suction level for optimum results
- Fast, effective results
- Large unit
- Options can be daunting and not often well explained with provided material
Rounding out our 3-in-1 bench-mounted units is the Yofuly diamond at home microdermabrasion kit.
Like the other 3-in-1 kits, this includes nine heads and 3 vacuum tubes you can use in different combinations.
The 9 heads are labelled for:
- Facial acne and scars
- Large scar repair on the face
- Acne scars, nose wing
- Nose, acne and scars
- Fine lines, nose, and small areas of acne
- Large scars on the body
- Scar skin and acne skin
- Large facial scars
- Large scars on the body
As you can see there is some double-up, but the differently shaped heads allow different approaches to differently shaped scars or other imperfections. Having the range of options available means there’s no situation you aren’t prepared to treat with the Yofuly Diamond Microdermabrasion Machine.
- Sturdy, robust unit
- Variable vacuum control
- Precise control with multiple heads
- Not portable
- Glass elements require extra care
We’ll end the list with something a bit different — a microdermabrasion alternative.
The VIJUVe anti ageing face massager promises many of the same benefits of microdermabrasion, but without the abrasion. Instead, the device gently massages the face to tighten the underlying structures and remove the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Somewhat similar to tenderizing meat before seasoning it, the massager makes your usual at-home face care routine more effective. The skin will absorb more active ingredients, giving you better results from your moisturizers and other products.
The VIJUVE face massager also comes with a vitamin-c and hyaluronic acid-infused serum to get the rejuvination process kickstarted.
- No small particles
- No vacuum
- Clears out fine lines and wrinkles
- Cannot treat skin damage and acne.
