Product Review: DDF Revolve 400x Micro-Polishing System
by Vanessa Day
For the smooth, glowing results of a Microdermabrasion treatment, skin care patients used to have no options aside from a visit to a cosmetic clinic. But the dermatologists at DDF, Doctors Dermatologic Formula, have created a new device they claim delivers the same results as a professional Microdermabrasion but in less time and for less money. So what is this magical product and how does it work?
The Revolve 400x: A Breakthrough in At-Home Skincare
The latest product from DDF is called the DDF Revolve 400x Micro-Polishing System, which is priced at a reasonable $95, with refills costing $50. Much like other products that came before it, like the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Rejuvenator and the DermaNew Facial Rejuvenation System, the Revolve 400x is said to exfoliate skin, revealing a softer, more even-toned look. However, many are saying that this new device is much more effective than its predecessors.
The DDF Revolve 400x delivers Microdermabrasion results from the comfort of your own home. And unlike other at-home devices which simply oscillate along the skin’s surface, the Revolve actually transmits a continuous rotating motion, circulating up to 400 rotations per minute—hence the name. The micro-polishing system utilizes a gentle sodium bicarbonate crystal formula, which doesn’t scratch the skin like diamond crystals used in professional Microdermabrasion treatments. The combination of the mild, self-warming DDF Polishing Crystals and the consistent motion of the Foam Exfoliator help to polish away skin imperfections, revealing radiant, healthy-looking skin. The kit also includes a brush head to use for daily deep cleansing so you can maintain your results better. The Revolve 400x is lightweight, travel friendly and shower approved, making it extremely portable and easy to use anywhere. The two speed levels allow you to control the intensity of your Microdermabrasion treatment, depending on your personal preference.
What People are Saying About the DDF Revolve 400x
In the short time that this product has been available, many women and men have sampled it to see its capabilities; and they all seem to be pleased. Many claimed that their skin was softer and more radiant after their first go with the Revolve 400x. Others said they couldn’t stop touching their face, they loved the feel so much. Some consumers who frequently went to skincare professionals for Microdermabrasion treatments said the Revolve gave them better results; not to mention it was quicker and more relaxing.
But the Revolve is not without its flaws. The cost is decent, but the refills are priced pretty high, so it may end up costing a lot more than other similar products on the market. Also, the product is approved as an anti-aging and exfoliant treatment, but the company encourages people with sensitive or acne prone skin to consult a doctor before using the Revolve 400x. While many have said it has helped reduce their breakouts, it may not help others, and so it is best to talk to a dermatologist first. The DDF Revolve 400x is difficult to maneuver around the eyes, lips and hairline, mostly because the foam head is relatively large and cannot manage around smaller crevices of the face. Also, consumers should be warned that taking extra care around the hairline is essential, because the spongy head can pull hair into its circular motion.
Should You Use a DDF Revolve 400x?
While the DDF Revolve 400x has received numerous rave reviews and the data on their website indicates impressive results, there is no guarantee that it will work great for everyone. If you have certain skin conditions such as rosacea, or other skin problems like excessive oiliness or dryness, then the exfoliator might make it worse. As with any at-home product, there is the risk of improper application, which can cause horrible side effects, especially if the crystal solution gets into the eyes or mouth.
As successful as some at-home Microdermabrasion kits might be, it is still better to see a skincare specialist. They can better assess the condition of your skin and determine if Microdermabrasion is the right course of treatment, or if you need something more advanced like a chemical peel or Laser Skin Rejuvenation.
