All of us are looking for that one product that really delivers on the promise when it comes to better looking skin. I know I have tried so many different products and although I have found some that have made a difference, there hasn't been any that I really saw make such an impact as the Riiviva microdermabrasion unit. It operates as the professional systems and delivers the same results but at a fraction of the costs and at your own convenience. I love my Riiviva and can definitely tout the benefits along with the ease of us. I have tried one of their competitors, which is on their comparison page, and would recommend the Riiviva due to results and particularly how easy it is to use. The other unit I used had to have a tight portion of skin in order for the suction unit to work on the skin which made some areas on the face very difficult. The Riiviva is so much easier as it has the diamond head and it operates on three selections of power for your comfort.
It's not just any type of resurfacing tool as it uses medical-grade diamond tip abrasion and a patent-pending vortex which reduces wrinkles and fine lines, sun spots, acne scars and mild acne. With other attachments, it can be used on various parts of the body to help reduce stretch marks and keratosis pilaris. I cannot vouch for those conditions but I can state that I have seen a reduction in wrinkles, fine lines and acne scars. My before picture didn't turn out as close up as I had liked so I didn't use it but my oldest daughter told me that just after a few week's of use, she definitely saw a reduction of my acne scars on the jaw line. I also love how soft my skin feels after a treatment since it removes the top layer of skin (stratum corneum). Just click on the Riiviva video link to see it in action.
Look at a couple of the before and after pictures from Riiviva:
It is stated that you should clean the Riiviva after each use with a brush for the diamond tip and tweezers to pull out the filter. Both are easy to do and doesn't require elaborate tools or processes to do. Not the best close up picture but here is one we took to celebrate epilepsy awareness' Purple Day last month. I will be 45 in July.
Overall, it's a great system due to:
- Handheld chargeable unit - portable and easy to take on the go
- Stainless steel diamond tip abrasion allowing for the best possible results at home
- Made in the US - what can I say? I love buying products made here!
- Variable levels of suction to control how much I want at my comfort level.
- Comparably priced - you can find cheaper but the quality is what counts in my opinion.
- It's registered with the FDA.
Riiviva provides the device alone or you can buy kits, various tips, accessories, serums, cleansers and much more. It's a one stop shop for healthier looking skin! I love my Riiviva and am looking into buying some of the different abrasion tips for stretch marks and more precision for acne. It's worth the money as it delivers results and is so easy to use.
