SmartPeel may not be as popular as Parisian Peel or DermaGenesis but the fact that they are trying to keep up with the competition by adding new features to their machines (micro massage, light therapy) proves that they have the expertise and power to progress and offer reliable products.
But before continuing, you might want to read about the top three home micro dermabrasion kits reviewed on this site: Youthful Essence, Dermanew and Neutrogena (and also see my latest microdermabrasion kit review, the Personal Microderm System).
SoundSkin LLC distributes many skincare products including the SmartPeel Microdermabrasion Systems. It is the exclusive U.S. distributor for BHC International LTD, the Peterborough-based British company that designs, manufactures, sells the Smart Peel.
SoundSkin claims to have sold and serviced over 5,000 peel systems worldwide. They also say that the first system that they sold in the US is still in daily use.
The main thing makes SmartPeel different from all other professional micro derma abrasion machines is the patented "Air Mist" technology that minimizes crystal use while eliminating clogging (crystals are drawn out directly from the "crystal mist" inside the crystal container, not from a tube).
The SmartPeel comes in three different models developed with a standard set of features plus some unique extras for each. The standard features are:

A: Dryness after micro skin abrasion is extremely rare. If it does happen, nourish your skin with a replenishing serum.
A: Yes, there is no reason not to have Microdem abrasion on your hands. The best thing to do is to choose a specially designed body micro dermabrasion kit.
A: Microderm abrasian cream works on fine wrinkles. It evens out skin texture through abrasion of the top layer of skin. The effect is a reduction or even total removal of superficial wrinkles. Deeper wrinkles need a more invasive non-surgical technique, like a deep chemical peel or laser resurfacing.
A: Eczema sufferers should not use microdermabration This procedures is somewhat invasive to the skin (any skin rejuvenation treatment is to some extent) and can worsen their condition. This applies to home microderma abrasion as well, despite its mild effect.
A: By exfoliating the top layer of the skin, microdemabrasion sets clean deep into the pore and removes excess oil and dirt that clog pores - which causes whiteheads. Most whiteheads are removed while the more stubborn ones become less noticeable.
A: Rosacea is one of the main contraindications of microdermabrasion, because the exfoliation process worsens rosacea symptoms (redness, itchiness, flaking). home micro abrasion kits either (even though they are milder).
A: One major advantage is the minimum risks and side effects associated with micro dermabration Unlike dermabrasion or laser skin resurfacing, microdermabration takes no more than 30-60 minutes and can be successfully used on the face as well as the body (neck, chest, back and hands). If time or money is an issue, the procedure is also available as a cheap personal microabrasion system (well known brands include Neutrogena, Mary Kay, L'Oreal, Oil of Olay, Homedics, etc). It removes only the very top skin layer which is why it's considered to be the least invasive cosmetic procedure. It doesn't require anesthesia and has virtually no down time after treatment. It can be performed on all skin types and colors without risks and side effects.
A: By removing the top layer of skin, microdermabasion evens out skin texture and helps remove superficial scarring. Deeper scars needs more invasive non-surgical techniques, like deep chemical peeling or laser facial resurfacing.
A: Age spots can be made less visible or even removed entirely through several micro dermabration treatments - the flow of crystals exfoliates the top layer of the skin and evens out irregular skin pigmentation.
A: Macrodermabrasion works by sandblasting the outermost skin layer but cannot abrade deeper skin layers where tattooed skin cells are which is why it cannot be used for tattoo removal. Removing tattoos requires laser or surgical procedures which are invasive enough to reach pigmented skin cells.
A: Healthy-looking skin needs elasticity and density, both achievable through skin cell renewal. Micro derm abrasion product abrades the outermost skin layer and stimulates skin renewal. An effective skin renewal process results in increased elasticity and density. Moreover, the vacuum function of the microdermbrasion machine sucks up dirt and hardened oil to reveal an even skin texture and tone.
A: Compared to other non-surgical procedures, clinic microdermabrasian is the cheapest skin rejuvenation procedure. For example, microderma kits cost between $15 and $200, depending on contents and brand. Kits that include a rotating hand-held device designed to massage the crystal cream onto your face are the most expensive (and the most effective). The price of a single micro dermal abrasion treatment at a beauty salon or spa varies between $75 and $200. One full face session at a surgeon or dermatologist office costs somewhere between $100 and $300, not including initial consultation fees (which may cost an additional $150). You may need an average of 9 treatments and 4 maintenance sessions for best results which makes a full microdermbrasion treatment cost around $1,600 per year.
