When it comes to anti-aging skin care products, it’s hard to distinguish truth from fiction. Crystalift claims to be the first skin resurfacing machine designed for in home use. There are a number of Spas that offer the service as well. The makers of the machine claim that the machine uses the same vacuum based technology which many Dermatologists uses in their offices.
Previously only licensed professionals were authorized to use crystal and vacuum resurfacing machines. BioRenew Labs, the developers of Crystalift claim to have brought consumers the same technology only in a smaller, countertop machine which is easy to use in your own home. Crystalift is said to use dual action power which fights the visible signs of aging which are fine lines and wrinkles. The so called “new technologies” which are skin resurfacing and vacuum lift therapy are not new at all but are used in doctor’s offices and spas all over the world. The makers of Crystalift say that the machine will safely and gently lift the old damaged skin cells off the skin and allow newer fresh skin to emerge leaving users with a more youthful radiant glow. They say that other types of skin care are out dated and that only Crystalift will give consumers the results which they desire. The Crystalift machine comes with crystal refills, Aqua Bright Gel Cleanser, a hydrating mask, an instruction manual and an instructional DVD.
- The official website for Crystalift has before and after photos and customer testimonials to back up their claims.
- The website has step by step instructions for potential buyers to view.
- Crystalift is not the same professional grade as the machines found in spas and doctors offices.
- There is the potential for over use in order to achieve the desired results.
- The machine fairly expensive compared to other in home use machines.
The Bottom Line
Most consumers go to the professionals to get microdermabrasion treatments but the treatments can be costly and most people can’t afford the luxury. However in recent years, there has been a trend towards at home versions of similar devices. While this may be an inexpensive alternative to a spa, devices made for home use hardly offer the same intensity as professional grade machines. That’s usually the case with any consumer product. That said users may be more inclined to use the machine more frequently which may result in causing more damage than good. There are similar devices on the market that may offer some exfoliating benefits such as clearing up minor skin eruptions and working to reduce rough patches but they can hardly produce the same results as what the professional services can provide. For more severe damage such as deep lines and wrinkles, this machine will never do. It may be best to leave it up to the professionals or search for a more intense anti-aging skin care treatment. There are some promising topical treatments on the market with advances ingredients that are sure to produce amazing results.
