RoC renewex Home Microdermabrasion Kit
Wat is u opinie oor die bogenoemde Home Microdermabrasion Kit. Dit is veronderstel om die "vel te skraap met mikrokristalle soos aluminiom oksied" en sal ontslae raak van sonskade, vlekke op die vel, lyntjies op die vel en aknee merke. Dink u dat hierdie produk kan werk om ontslae te raak van vlekke op die vel en rooi aknee merke?
Baie dankie

Hi Maria, thank you for the question. My apologies for answering you in English but my Afrikaans is not up to scratch.
I have no personal experience with the RoC Kit you mention, nor can I find any studies pertaining to demonstrate its efficiency. I did find some information regarding the kit on the world press webpage dedicated to microdermabrasion. The article states as follows:
“The system comes with a micro-crystal cream, a foam applicator handle and two replacement sponges.
The methods of usage cannot be easier. Just apply the cream and using the foam applicator ( battery powered). Gently apply the cream spreading it evenly over the face for about 1-2 minutes ( it is good to massage the face in circular movements when applying the micro-crystal cream). Wash face with luke warm water and pat dry with a soft towel.
It is a good idea to use some toner to close the pores and then apply some aqueous based moisturiser cream to keep the new revealed layer of skin fresh and hydrated. This system can be used 3-4 times a week (maybe once or twice for those people with sensitive skin).
Good results, are seen after 2 weeks. It’s handy, portable and the creams and sponges are not expensive to buy.

Downside, micro-crystals may be a bit too sensitive for people with reactive skin but otherwise a very good system.”
I hope that this helps with your decision, and if you do decide to use the system please let me know what your experience is.
