Want flawless skin that looks and feels clean, clear and younger? A micro dermabrasion treatment might be what’s missing from your skincare routine.
This skincare treatment goes by many names, including diamond facial, silk peel, or chemical-free exfoliation. Micro dermabrasion is nothing new, and yet it is still one of the top facial treatments globally for flawless skin.
And if celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Campbell and Caitriona Balfe are doing it, we should be doing it too.
Thanks to brands like Dermerén, now you can do your own micro dermabrasion in the comfort of your own home.
There’s nothing more satisfying than watching pimple popping videos on Tik Tok, but speak to any skincare specialist and they will tell you that popping pimples is terribly bad for your skin and may result in permanent scarring.
Skin treatments like dermabrasion are a safer option for extraction, cleaning and even to help heal any form of blemishes.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that usually involves a skin care specialist removing the top layer of skin with a small hand-held device that will exfoliate and draw out impurities. Microdermabrasion is a procedure done to exfoliate the skin, reduce signs of ageing, and make the skin appear more even, and it’s suitable for every skin type.
Dermerèn has launched a Facial Kit that allows the use of an advanced microdermabrasion device in the comfort of your own home, all while watching a live feed video from a HD camera connected to the app created to go with the device.
Who is Dermerèn?
Dermerén is a Leading Australian Beauty Device company founded by Elle Gencer, in the hopes of empowering and encouraging the everyday Australian woman to take control of their own self-care by incorporating a touch of luxury into their skincare routines, all while in their own bathroom, with results of a salon treatment. Dermerén is an Australian facial company who specialise in home microdermabrasion and skincare, which is now known as the smart and effective way to have a facial.
How does the Dermerén Facial Kit work?
Firstly, the device needs to be set up and charged. The device comes with a charging cord, and charging can take up to 2-3 hours. When the device is fully charged, the circular button will stay lit up.
Choose the head:
After making sure the device has been fully charged, it is time to choose which head to use on the skin. The device comes with four different head selections that can be switched out during the session:
- Crystalline Head:
The microdermabrasion head will gently rub away the outer layers of the skin, which is great for evening out age spots, acne scars, stretch marks, face wrinkles and flaking skin.
- Standard Head:
This one is perfect for a general deep clean and encouraging blood circulation and collagen formulation.
- Oval Head:
This one is the strongest and only recommended for use on the lowest suction setting, and on the T-Zone of the face.
- Precision Head:
Best for focus areas such as the nose and chin which typically contain clogged pores, this head is also great for extracting whiteheads and blackheads.
Download the application:
Once the first suction head has been chosen, it is time to connect the device to the Dermerén application. The kit will come with a QR code that will allow the downloading of the app to be super quick and easy, the app is then connected to the device in WIFI settings, and ready to use.
Prepare the skin:
Skin preparation is one of the most important steps to ensure the device works to the best of its capabilities.
- Cleanse the skin and remove all makeup.
- Take a warm shower or use a warm facial towel to open the pores.
- Test the skin by using the device on the back of the hand to ensure that it is comfortable on the skin and ready to use on the face.
The most satisfying part, the treatment:
Begin on the lowest setting and pull the skin while using the device on the skin. It is important to begin at the bottom of the face and work upwards, gently gliding the device along the natural lines of the face in smooth and swift motions for the best results.
As the application is connected, the HD camera that is built into the head of the device will show everything that is being extracted from the skin. The camera feature is unique and watching it is as satisfying as watching pimple popping videos on Tik Tok.
Rejuvenating the skin:
Once the at home salon treatment is complete, switch the device off and wash the face with cold water. Using cold water is important as it will tighten and prevent re-clogging of the pores as they are now clean.
After washing the face, the best serum for replenishing and hydrating the skin is the Dermerén Rejuvenation Serum for $79 and the Replenish Oil for $69. For the best results it is recommended to do this at home microdermabrasion treatment once a week to maintain healthy and clean skin.
Clean the device:
As the device is designed to suction and draw out impurities from the skin, there will be a bit of cleaning to do on the head of the device. The cleaning is super easy, just remove the head from the device and soak it in warm soapy water, followed by applying an alcohol-based disinfectant to make sure it is free from any fluids or impurities that came out during the session.
BB Writer Mia test drove the device, and experienced a salon treatment in the comfort of her own home using the new Dermerén Microdermabrasion Facial Kit, here’s how her experience went:
“I found setting up the device super easy, and after using it my skin felt so clean. Something I definitely noticed was how effective the suction heads are, so it is important to make sure that the device does not go over any regions twice, as it may be harmful to the skin as the suction is very effective.
I love how Dermerén is bringing women the opportunity to have salon treatments like microdermabrasion in the comfort of their own home, with such a great device that truly feels just like a salon micro.
The camera feature was a huge highlight of her experience as it creates a very unique experience and watching it is very satisfying.”
Here are some things Mia would recommend avoiding when using the device:
- Something to note is that applying pressure could damage the skin.
- Do not hold the device on one spot for more than three seconds as bruising can occur.
- If the skin is in any discomfort or pain, stop using the device as it may be too rough for the skin.
Here are some things Mia discovered when using the device:
- It is a must to have open pores before beginning the treatment.
- Hydrating and replenishing the skin afterwards is very important to maintain healthy skin.
- The inbuilt camera has amazing HD quality.
