Silk’n ReVit Microdermabrasion Review

I am always looking for new methods to improve my beauty routine and one of the best ways to revitalize and regenerate the skin is by resurfacing the outer layers. The accumulation of dead cells can cause roughness, dryness and imperfections that dull the complexion and make you look tired. With the Silk’n Microderabrasion Machine ($99.00) you no longer have to spend hundreds of dollars on clinical treatments. The lightweight device delivers professional results from the comfort of home and you can customize the strength of exfoliation to suit your skin type.

I am no stranger to microderm treatments, in fact I have another machine designed with similar technology that retails for $321.00. For a fraction of the price Silk’n has created a small, manoeuvrable unit that promotes fresher looking skin and anti-aging results.  

What’s Included

*Three Detachable diamond treatment heads: 
Precision - for small, hard to reach areas
Fine - for a gentle treatment
Coarse - for powerful exfoliation
*30 filters
*User manual and power adapter (the device plugs into the wall and is not rechargeable)
*Storage/travel case


How it Works
ReVit combines microdermabrasion exfoliation with crushed diamonds and vacuum suction to remove dead cells and reveal the soft skin underneath. Unlike creams or scrubs, the machine does far more than scratch the surface. It gently lifts away flaky, damaged skin and deposits it in the filter so you can actually see the build-up.


The Benefits of Microdermabrasion:

*Soft, youthful looking skin
*Improvement in texture, tone and vibrancy
*Reduction in age spots, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles
*Strengthening of collagen and elastin
*Blurs blemishes and imperfections
*Fades hyperpigmentation and other color discrepancies
*Removal of bacteria and impurities
*Prevention of breakouts, blackheads and whiteheads
*Enhanced glow
*Diminish the effects of sun damage and pollution
*Increased circulation
*Shrinks pores and improves texture tone and resiliency


Using the Device
The ReVit is not battery operated so you can simply plug it in, turn it on and lightly drag the tip across the face in short, careful strokes. On some areas you may need to hold your skin taut to enhance suction and the instructions suggested treating each area (forehead and temples, cheeks, nose, around the mouth, chin and neck) for 5 minutes although I usually do it for about 2-3 mins per section.

Customize the intensity by adjusting the pressure you use or alternate the heads to accommodate sensitive areas. There should be no discomfort or pain but if you experience irritation I suggest applying a soothing aloe gel and tweaking the duration of your treatment. Do not use the device in combination with other abrasive products and allow your skin time to regenerate. I also recommend cleaning the filter after each use and replacing it often to keep the machine running smoothly.  

For best results do not apply any skincare before exfoliation and make sure your face is clean and dry. If you cleanse prior to treatment, wait a few minutes until the moisture has completely dissipated or else the device may not grip and glide as efficiently. Dryness and streaking is common as dead cells are removed so don’t panic if your skin looks a bit ashy. Complete your session with a replenishing moisturizer to rehydrate and plump.

I recommend using the microderm in the evening before bed because if your skin is a bit sensitive you should avoid applying makeup or sunscreen for at least a few hours.


My Results
The most significant change in my skin has been the supple, silky texture but I've also noticed an incredible improvement in clarity, tone and evenness. My face looks renewed and discoloration has faded substantially. After treatment my skincare products also seem to absorb better which makes my complexion appear radiant and dewy.

The Silk’n ReVit is available at Shoppers Drug Mart, beautyboutique.ca, London Drugs and Silkn.ca.
