Skin Care Review: Life Extension Self MicroDermAbrasion Ultra Exfoliate

by Candace R., Pasadena, CA USA


Removes a layer of dead cells to reveal fresher skin.

Rather costly but lasts a long time. Pores may appear larger for a couple of days.

When I purchased this product, I chastised myself for spending $35 for a glorified facial scrub, and I dismissed their claims that the particle size and material actually gave results similar to microdermabrasion by a dermatoligist, but after using the product, I'd have to agree. I mix it with a little water and Cetaphyl cleanser, close my eyes and rub my entire face lightly in small circles for several minutes. My face actually goes numb, and when I rinse it off, I can see that it has completely resurfaced my skin. Because the resulting resurfacing is fairly deep, I follow with a copper peptide solution (CP Serum from Skin Biology). I then apply a generous amount of moisturizer. I don't use this more often than every couple of weeks, but if I had serious acne scarring or uneven skin I would use it often until I saw improvement.

This is a wonderful product for resurfacing your skin, and worth the price.
