I'm 46 and I have deep forehead wrinkles & crows feet. In the last two years I've began breaking out with cystic acne on my chin & jawline due to trapped pores/whiteheads. I am not having a breakout since beginning the Neutrogena acne products containing 2% salicylic acid (Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Creamy Cleanser and Neutrogena Rapid Clear Fight & Fade Toner) so I just finished using my Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System and I am floored with the look & feel of my skin!!! It is very smooth (especially my PREVIOUS crows feet) and soft. My skin is not red and irritated but I applied 100% Pure Aloe Gel after the treatment as a precaution BECAUSE this IS a form of microdermabrasion. The battery cover was a little hard to open but it HAS to be in order to keep it waterproof. The clip-on pad adapter fit perfectly and securely onto the vibrating machine. The microdermabrasion pads stuck to the adapter great and did not come off at any time during use. I was concerned that I would not get enough sloughing action because the head vibrates instead of spinning but that was NOT the case at all. There was plenty of dermabrasion action. I have normal skin so I used the high massage setting without any problems. If this rattles your teeth turn the setting to low and BACK OFF ON THE PRESSURE YOU ARE APPLYING!!!!

This is a microdermabrasion system NOT daily cleansing so I washed my makeup off beforehand. I ran the tip of the machine (pad) under trickling hot water throughout cleansing to make sure I had plenty of foamy lather so that the pad glided smoothly over the surface of my face throughout the entire process - this is where a little "common sense" is needed!! About halfway through I coated my face with my Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Creamy Cleanser because (1)I am in LOVE with this cleanser and (2)it helps with my slight acne problem. I used small, GENTLE circular motions and lightly buffed my face for several minutes (2 minutes for each area - forehead, cheeks, chin and about a minute on my nose & over my lips). I rinsed my face in very cool and then cold water to remove the cleanser. I patted my face dry with a clean towel and slathered on 100% Pure Aloe Gel to combat any minor irritation that microdermabrasion commonly causes. What a difference this system has made!

I am astonished at the improvement in the texture of my skin. My crows feet are completely smoothed out and there is also an improvement in my deep forehead wrinkles. I don't know how long these results will last but with continued use I can not possibly go wrong after witnessing the results I've had with just one use. Everyone will have different opinions because some think it's too abrasive but this is MICRODERMABRASION!!!! Others have had breakouts which is why "I" used my anti-acne cleanser halfway through the treatment. I don't understand why a few have had a problem with the pad adapter staying on unless they received a defective one. Mine is very tight and secure. There was no problem with the microdermabrasion pad coming off prematurely because it took a good hard tug to remove it when the treatment was finished. I am on a fixed income so I intend to rinse off the adapter/microdermabrasion pad and pat it dry with a clean towel so that a single pad can be used several times along with my Neutrogena Creamy Cleanser. I will replace the pad if I notice that the dermabrasion has worn off of the pad but I'm cheap(: This is MY preference only and not recommended by Neutrogena.

Do not apply so much pressure that your skin ends up being red and sore afterwards. With ANY form of microdermabrasion your skin requires extra care & attention which is why I used soothing Aloe Gel. Also, I was a little rough in one spot on my face so I dabbed a bit of Triple Antibiotic Cream on it. Check out the You Tube reviews but do not take their advice literally. Use good judgement and common sense!

This treatment is recommended for use every 3 or more days depending on how your skin reacts to microdermabrasion and the amount of pressure YOU apply while using this machine. BE GENTLE! The WAVE pads (velcro) will work with this machine for GENTLE DAILY CLEANSING but be careful. Do not use additional SCRUBS or EXFOLIATION for 3+ days after this treatment. There is also a sponge adapter (sold separately) that can be used along with a gentle daily cleanser but a clean, hot washcloth and a gentle cleanser is all that is needed for daily cleansing and makeup removal between microdermabrasion treatments. USE FACE SUNSCREEN!!! You've just removed your top layer of skin so take care of the new skin that's just been revealed (:

I thought it was worth the buy at first because of the free refills with purchase promo, and the brand, but the product does not spin. It just vibrates. And it is a bit annoying because of the pressure. The vibration makes my teeth and jaw feel funny and have to tense my neck and face, and clench teeth. I also have to move the product in circular motion. Sometimes I just take the cleanse pads and wash by hand. The smell is nice and pads are nice for exfoliating. It can be more work than needed. My skin felt smooth, but I found I needed a heavier moisturizer because of dryness.

      Comments about Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System, 1 set:

      This device is incredible for gently exfoliating facial and neck skin. I deal with moderate acne and this item really helps get rid of dead skin cells that clog my pores. It makes my face baby bottom smooth without irritation. I use it 3 times a week as recommended. My face feels so clean after I use this. I always wash my face first with Purity Made Simple by Philosophy, then I go to work on exfoliating with this. I have used a Clarisonic in the past, which totally shredded my skin. This device is so much better because it gently vibrates the skin rather than brushing it. My acne problem has almost completely gone away. I truly am grateful for finding this and I highly recommend it!

        I've been using this twice a week, every other week since 3/13 in addition to a Clarisonic Mia brush in an attempt to rid myself of scarring left on my face and neck from extensive picking. My skin has improved so much with this in particular. It's enhanced the Clarisonic's benefits as well. My skin is softer, fuller, more even and nearly completely rid of scars. I cannot recommend this enough.

        Comments about Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System, 1 set:

        When I bought this product it was considered a splurge for me. It seemed like a good idea to help me control my adult acne but not be harsh on my sensitive skin. It turned out that this product is good for the opposite effect. What I mean is that It was too gentle to keep my skin pimple free. I should note that I used this during the warmer months when my skin is extra oily and I use heavy sunblocks. Maybe this works better in the colder months, but I'm not willing to even buy refills to find out. I would rather use a different product or keep looking.

            Thought this might help exfoliate some stubborn dead skin flakes, especially around my nose, but it just made my face red and worse looking. Working in a hospital, with dry, recycled air that really dried the skin on my face out and made it flaky. This did not knock the flakes off, just made everything worse. Not sure what this is for, or what to do with it. Doesn't seem to be useful for much.

                Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System

                 –  Microdermabrasion was a treatment once reserved for spas and dermatologists' offices, but today, you can enjoy the benefits of microdermabrasion at home. Neutrogena has developed an effective system to create more beautiful skin without the time and expense required by professional treatments. If you want to improve the health and beauty of your skin efficiently and stay within your budget, learn more about this effective system.

                What Is Included



                This microdermabrasion system comes with everything you need to rejuvenate your skin for one month. The kit includes the microdermabrasion application, as well as a one-month supply (12) of rejuvenating puffs. You will also receive the attachment head and two AA batteries with your purchase.

                How It Works



                This system can replace your everyday scrub, working to buff your skin in a highly effective way. Use the system three times a week to eliminate dead skin cells, buildup, and other impurities that can dull and diminish your skin's appearance. Results will appear after each use and evolve over time. First, you will notice that your skin is softer and more luminous after every use of the system. After a month of use, you can enjoy skin that is firmer and even younger looking.

                This system is easy to use. Simply attach a puff to the attachment head, power the device, and massage it into your facial skin for one to two minutes up to three times a week. Use a new puff with each use, and enjoy your smoother and healthier skin in no time.
