If you're wanting a spa grade microdermabrasion machine for at home use, look no further than the Kendal Professional Diamond Microdermabrasion Machine HB-SF01. This is a professional grade diamond tip machine designed for use by dermatologists, aestheticians and other salon or spa professionals. But it's ease of use, powerful suction, and diamond tips mean it's just as good a choice for use in the home as it is at the spa.

Unlike other professional grade machines that use crystals, the Kendal Pro uses a sterile diamond head to rub off the dead skin cells from the top layer of skin on the face and other areas of the body. The suction feature removes the dead cells as well as debris and dirt, and leaves the appearance of scars, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and blemishes greatly reduced, and in some cases, completely gone.

There are many great benefits with this machine:

  • Restored sun damaged skin on the face, shoulders, neck, arms, back and legs
  • Reduced appearance of age spots
  • Even skin tone
  • Reduced appearance of superficial scars from injuries and acne
  • Removal of blackheads and whiteheads
  • Removal of excess oil in oily skin
  • Reduced enlarged pores

Features/Accessories

  • (2) dermabrasion stainless steel handles
  • (9) diamond tips including three size groups: large, medium and small, each with a fine, medium and coarse tip
  • 360 cotton filters including 240 small and 120 large
  • Air hose for diamond filter
  • Power cable
  • (2) oil filters

In addition to the items listed above, it also comes with extra fuses, an instruction manual, and a foam lined carrying case. It also has a (1) year warranty and life time parts support.

Diamond Tips

Kendal Pro HB-SF01 Diamond TipsThe Kendal Pro HB-SF01 comes with 9 heads for treatment on various parts of the body. There are three different size tips each with different coarseness levels. Your results will largely depend on using the right diamond tip for your skin type. To that end, this unit comes with a really handy box that includes a chart that highlights the different uses.


Ease of Use

Because the Kendal Pro is a professional grade device, it has a slightly different setup than other machines. For starters, the unit has oil filters as well as cotton filters that are used to keep the machine unclogged. The cotton filters are single use while the oil filter can be used multiple times (think vacuum bag). The good news is that both of these filters are inexpensive. That said, some users have noted that the oil filter can reduce the suction on the machine.

The unit is easy to clean. Just use a very soft toothbrush and some liquid dish detergent to gently clean the tips. The machine has a dial that allows you to vary the degree of suction. It has a one year warranty and lifetime parts support.

Suction

One of the keys to any good microdermabrasion machine is it's suction power. As the wand is drawn over the skin it pulls the skin into the diamond tip creating much better contact for removal of dead skin cells. The higher the suction, the better the machine is able to pull away the dead cells, removing dirt and debris from the pores, while increasing collagen flow to the skin… all keys to a successful treatment.

So what about suction on the Kendal Pro? This is where this machine really shines. Out of the different units we've reviewed, and those available on the market in general, the Kendal Pro HB-SF01 has the highest level of suction measured at up to 26"/Hg. It includes a variable dial that allows you to set the suction to the appropriate setting for your treatment area.

Portability

As noted above the Kendal Pro does come with a lined carrying case, but the unit is bulky and not the best option for true portability.

Summary

For those who would like to have the treatment more often but can’t afford the high prices at a salon or spa, this system is ideal. It will give professional results at home on a regular basis and pay for itself within a year. It is no longer necessary to live with unwanted age spots, acne and fine lines when they can be painlessly removed and kept away with regular use of this system.
