Professional microdermabrasion treatments have become very popular lately but they are extremely expensive - about $80 per session. The Silk'n ReVit has been created to make at-home microdermabrasion more accessible, according to the manufacturer. It is a diamond microdermabrasion system in the form of a luxurious washer for your skin. It uses little pressure to suck in dead skin cells and other gunk. The device combines diamond-tip exfoliation with that vacuum stimulation to provide a glowing complexion with less age spots, acne scarring, and even fine lines. The Silk'n ReVit is a smaller device when compared to professional microdermabrasion kits. Does this pen-shaped device really pack all the power necessary for providing high-quality skin resurfacing. Let's answer this question a little later but at first let's take a look at the manufacturer of the product.
The company behind Silk'n ReVit is called Home Skinovations Ltd. It is claimed to be an internationally-acclaimed global leader in producing professional aesthetic devices for home use. This private company intends to develop, produce and sell effective devices. A team of scientists and engineers have a lengthy record of providing innovative laser, light, and LED based products to the market of aesthetic devices. The family of Silk'n home products has more than four million users all over the world and has been featured in magazines and TV shows. Other products of Home Skinovations include hair removal devices (Flash and Go, the Glide, and SensEpil), anti-aging treatments (FaceFX) and Blue for acne. Is Silk'n ReVit as effective as claimed by the manufacturer? Let's find out by learning how it works.
It is important to mention that microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, non-chemical procedure that uses an exfoliating surface (a diamond-tipped nozzle or a spray of microcrystals) to remove the upper layer of dead cells of your skin making it younger and healthier. The device uses a diamond tip. This is a better microdermabrasion method for a few reasons. While exfoliating through a spray of microcrystals can be irritating to the skin, the dermabrasion tips are etched with small diamond chips that stay put. These nozzles do not usually require regular replacements, which helps you to save money. Diamond microdermabrasion devices offer stronger dermabrasion, which means that you will get better and faster results. When the device is turned on, vacuum suction starts working and you don't need to scrub your skin with an exfoliant mechanically. The vacuum suction is said to stimulate your circulation and help the diamond tip to get a better "grip" on your skin surface. Once the Silk'n ReVit is pressed against the skin, the diamond tip starts removing dead layers of skin, opening smooth and fresh skin underneath. A replaceable filter collects your dead skin cells so you can see how much gunk was removed from your body. You are expected to get better skin texture, tone, and elasticity. The procedure also promises to reduce the appearance of fine lines and age spots on your skin. According to the manufacturer, Silk'n Revit is suitable for all skin types; you will need to adjust intensity settings, though. Even though it is marketed as a facial treatment, the device can also be used on your hands, neck, feet, or anywhere you wish. This sounds ridiculous to real specialists in the field.
There is a great number of customer reviews about their experience of using the device online. They say that the best results can be seen only within the first three to four days after the procedure. Although the official website states that each treatment takes only five minutes, I reality it takes much more time, especially if you are a beginner or if you want to treat not only your face, but also other parts of the body. It takes some time to learn to use Silk'n Revit correctly. It is important to follow certain "facial maps" provided by the manufacturer. Other than being time-consuming, using the device is not as easy as it is claimed by the manufacturer. Before each treatment you will need to wash your face with soap and water thoroughly. Choose a tip head based on your skin sensitivity and the area you are going to treat. Hold the pencil tightly and drag it across your face with careful strokes. After the procedure you will need to rinse your face with cool water and apply a moisturizer. Be careful to use sunscreen. Microdermabrasion opens new skin that is extremely vulnerable to sun damage. The users don't like the fact that they need to replace filters every time. Filters can be bought separately for additional money. Let us take a look at the actual customers' reviews.
"I don't understand how Silk'n ReVit got good reviews from other users! This device just vacuums your skin while a metal tip scrapes across it. It's like rubbing fine grit sandpaper across your face. This irritates the skin so much. I regret buying this device. I am going to purchase something smarter and less expensive. My skin is still unattractive after using the device. Save your money for a professional treatment"
"I used Silkn ReVit three times and it simply stopped working. I cannot say that I liked it a lot but it did what it was supposed to do. The device has low quality, which is why it stopped working so fast. What is even worse is that I cannot return it, since it is just over one month. I won't be able to get my money back. I haven't seen any difference after using it on my skin three times. By the way, their customer service is a nightmare"
"Real microdermabrasion requires some agent to do the proper work. But Silk'N ReVit uses only suction. This is not microdermabrasion. I did not do any research before purchasing this device and now I cannot return it. I feel very disappointed and a bit screwed. Don't buy this product. It is just awful and is not worth the money it costs. Waste of money"
The product is available on their official website or some authorized retailers. It is priced at $99. Shipping to the US and Canada is free. Each order comes with three detachable diamond treatment nozzle heads and 30-day money-back guarantee. Filters are bought separately. Amazon sells packs of 100 for $15. If you're not satisfied with your purchase, you can request a refund within 30 days. Be ready to provide an invoice or receipt that lists the date of purchase. The device should be undamaged, packed in its original packaging and include all parts and accessories.
Before ordering Silk'n ReVit you should be aware of the fact that the power of this microdermabrasion system is much lower than this in professional settings for safety reasons. The manufacturer of the device does not say anything about its power level, so it is difficult to make any conclusions on the manufacturer's claims. However, the device is associated with many negative customer reviews that mention poor performance of the product. If you are looking to address scarring, this microdermabrasion treatment will hardly bring any positive results. The product is said to be pricy and irritating to the skin. With this in mind, I cannot recommend Silk'n ReVit. It is better to trust your skin to microdermabrasion professional systems.
