The Nu Brilliance Microdermabrasion Skin Care System is a kit that has all you need to have glowing, younger-looking skin. It is a professional-quality device that you can use at home. The diamond tip peels and exfoliates the skin while the vacuum removes the dead cells, debris and dirt. The results include a reduction in fine lines, age spots and wrinkles.
The treatment has been used for years by celebrities and others who don’t want to let the natural aging process define their appearance. It is non-invasive, painless and requires no anesthetic, but has a powerful effect that can be seen after just one treatment. And that’s the beauty of microdermabrasion at home: you get professional quality results at a fraction of the prices charged by spas and dermatologists… plus it can all happen in the privacy of your own home.
How Does it Work?
As you age, your skin gradually stops replacing dead skin cells with new ones. This makes your face look aged with wrinkles, age spots and rough texture. When the top layer of the epidermis is removed through this process, the new skin cells are exposed, and the face looks brighter, with an even, overall tone and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and coloration. The suction also stimulates the regeneration of collagen in the dermis for firmer looking skin. When the layer of dead cells, dirt and debris is removed through exfoliation, nourishing skin creams and moisturizers can penetrate to the dermis to feed and strengthen the skin. It does all this without the use of crystal, but rather through the use of a diamond tipped wand.
The all-inclusive, easily portable, light weight plastic container includes:
- The dual action system unit
- (3) diamond tips (coarse, medium, fine)
- (30) disposable filters
- DVD instructions and instruction manual
The Nubrilliance Microdermabrasion System uses a slightly different mechanism than other diamond tipped machines. Instead of having a metal wand and interchangeable tips, it uses a plastic “cap” that includes a diamond coated strip. The filter is places between the wand and the cap to catch dirt and debris from the application. Unfortunately, these tips and filters don’t last forever and do need replacement. The good news is that replacement kits are relatively inexpensive and come with both the tip and the filters.
Ease of Use
The device is very easy to use:
- Place a filter on the end of the wand.
- Select the diamond tip and attach it to the wand.
- Set the suction level for the type of skin you plan to treat. Stronger suction is be better for the back and arms. While gentle suction is better for around the eyes.
- Check the suction level on the back of your hand before beginning application.
- Draw the wand across the skin using smooth, gentle strokes with one hand while holding the skin in place with the other.
- Make 1-2 passes over each treatment area (but no more than three).
The tips need to be cleaned after each use. They should be washed with warm, soapy water and brushed with a very soft brush. The filters are intended to be changed after every treatment.
The Nubrilliance System has five suction levels which are easily set through the buttons the top of the machine. Simply press the right or left arrows to increase or decrease the setting. Your comfort level and treatment area will determine what suction level to use. One thing to note is that this machine does not suck the skin into the wand. It will draw the skin forward some, but maintaining a clear contact with your treatment area is important (just don’t press too hard).
Note: It’s recommend to start with a suction level of 1 or 2 for the first few uses until you can determine your comfort level.
The Nubrilliance is a completely self contained system. The hose and diamond applicator wrap neatly into the base of the unit. There is a cover that protects the machine and turns into a highly portable device. This is one of the nicest features of this unit. It makes it easy to take with you on the go as well as making clean-up a snap.
Although the Nubrilliance Microdermabrasion System comes in a nice overall package and is one of the most popular microdermabrasion machines on the market. That said we have some reservation about the durability of this product. Just looking at the reviews on Amazon it’s apparent that people have had problems with motors, suction, and general build quality. It comes with a 30 day warranty.
