Okay, to be honest, it takes a whole lot to make me excited about beauty products nowadays. Being in the beauty industry for almost a decade now, I think I've seen it all. Until yesterday, when Aesthetique Solutions launched their handy exfoliation device that can totally change my beauty regimen.

Behold, Revitalize Mircodermabrasion Device  – a personal, dermatologist grade beauty tool that will give us all the exfoliation we need to help us achieve beautifully smooth and youthful skin. 

So how does this work? If you're familiar or have tried diamond peel at derma clinics, this device practically works like that. Except that this one is portable and rechargeable. With its gentle vacuum and exfoliating crystals, the device lifts and removes dead skin cells from the face, neck, and any other body parts.

The P10,000 kit includes the following:

  • Revitalize Microdermabrasion Device
  • Standard Tip (For Face and Neck)
  • Fine Tip (Hard-to-reach areas on the face)
  • Disposable filters
  • Charger and stand
  • Cleaning Spoolie
  • Instructions Booklet
Make sure your face is well-cleansed before doing this procedure. After charging your device fully, turn it on and choose the pressure of suction that works best on your skin. From 1 to 3, I was most comfortable at pressure 2. It took three minutes of quick swipes, starting from the center of my face, to finish the job. 

A diamond peel fan myself, I was skeptical at first if a ten thousand peso device can really do the job of a diamond peel machine. I mean, those industrial grade machines are worth about a million! But when I tried using Revitalize on myself, the sensation was actually very similar. And the results? THE SAME.

Right after the procedure, I instantly felt my skin to be smoother and silky. Some of my whiteheads and blackheads were eliminated and acne scars were reduced (see that annoying dot on my chin on the before photo above). My pores shrinked and skin finish was matte. All flakes or dry skin from healing primples were gone. A more even skintone was apparent.

You can also see how much dead skin cells you've shed after a session.

The filters are disposable every after use. The kit comes with a couple of filters and you can buy a set for only P150.

Some intangibles that can't be photographed are also important to note. Exfoliation on this level would allow any skincare to penetrate and work better. This also helps in preventing ingrown hairs and make hair removal easier. (Side note: You can use this to exfoliate your body as well. Get their Body Tip at P1,200.). It's also like a mini facial as it helps increase circulation to the skin.

You can use this as is but it is best complemented with Aesthetique Solutions skincare line. I recommend getting their cooling gel that's best applied right after a procedure, especially for those who have sensitive skin that easily reddens

Once or twice a week will help you achieve better skin. I only had one session and I'm already happy with the results. Best part is, I don't need to endure Manila traffic just to be able to rejuvenate my skin!
