Renew & Revitalize Your Skin With The Silk'n ReVit

revit 2

When it comes to confidence, I'd say I have a pretty healthy and positive level of self-esteem. Learning how to be in love with my naturally curly hair and very short 5 ft. frame helped me to develop a "I am who I am" attitude, which keeps me loving me and not someone I pretend to be.  Rather than try to change the beauty that God gave me, I learned how to embrace it. One thing I was always envious of though, were girls with perfect complexions. Having struggled with acne though my adolescents, and even into adulthood, I can remember looking at women with baby soft skin and thinking, "Do they even have pores?". I may have not been given flawless complexion but the Silk'n ReVit (pictured above),which I was sent at no cost to facilitate this review, has made it possible to turn back the clock on the damage, making me not only feel, but look comfortable in my own skin!

Microderm With Silk'n ReVit

Whenever I dreamed of how I could help my skin recover from past acne damage, I knew one of the answers lied in microdermabrasion, but I also knew how costly those sessions (which are usually not covered by insurance) would be. I tried over-the-counter products for years, and wasted a lot of money. Having now used the Silk'n ReVit for several weeks, I can see my complexion changing before my eyes and I wish I would have found this product long ago. There are so many benefits to owning your own ReVit but here are just a few reasons why I know you'll love this microdermabrasion tool as much as I do!

  ReVit is a microdermabrasion tool that combines gentle microdermabrasion exfoliation with vacuum stimulation to reduce the appearance of age spots, fine lines and acne scars.
  • Removes dead skin cells to achieve a flawless complexion.
  • Gentle tip exfoliation to improve skin tone, texture and elasticity.
  • Reduces the appearance of age spots, fine lines and acne scars.
  • Vacuum stimulation for smoother and youthful looking skin.
  • Saves hundreds of dollars VS. office treatments.
  • Convenient, simple and affordable. - Silk'n ReVit Website Product Description

The ReVit comes with everything you need for a start to finish microdermabrasion session. I love that the box, though made of cardboard, is sturdy enough to store the product after use, keeping the Revit and all it's components clean and in one place. As pictured above, the Silk'n ReVit comes the electric tool itself, instructional and information packets, a small zip lock baggie of removable filters, and three different diamond abrasion tips:
  • Fine attachment - For normal skin or skin that has recently been treated.
  • Coarse attachment - Used for more intensive abrasion.
  • Precision attachment - Perfect for small areas around the nose and the corners of your eyes. - Silk'n ReVit Website Product Description
With so many products going wireless these days I hate having to purchase batteries over and over to use my purchase. True, it may be a bigger hassle to have a cord in the way, but I personally love that I don't have to give up the full power that you ultimate lose with cordless products, and that whenever I'm ready to use my ReVit, which is typically twice a week, I don't have to worry about hunting down or purchasing fresh batteries.

Using The Silk'n ReVit

ReVit Collage 1

My first question when using the Silk'n ReVit was, "Will it hurt?" I mean, I am about to use diamonds to buff off a layer of skin. I was honestly surprised, not only by the fact that this process didn't hurt at all, but also how easy it was to use! Both the Silk'n website and the ReVit instructional packet provide a guideline to follow for how to treat your face (it's also pictured above).
  • Pretreat: Wash your face with soap and water
  • Set up Silk'n ReVit:
    • Remove the Peeling Tip from the FRONT COVER CONE and clean it. Replace the used filter with a new one, and reattach the parts back together.
    • Choose a peeling intensity setting - Low (1 additional press of the ON button) or High (2 additional presses of the On button).
  • Begin facial microdermabrasion treatment- Hold the Silk'n ReVit like a pencil, glide its tip to the skin and slowly run it over the treatment area for full coverage, following the suggested stroking diagram.
  • Treat each treatment area for about 5 minutes.
  • At the end of the treatment session, turn the device off by giving the ON BUTTON one quick press id you are on Full Suction Mode, or two quick presses if you are treating on Partial Suction Mode.
  • Post treatment - Rinse your face with cool water and apply moisturizer. - Silk'n ReVit Website Product Instructions
When using the ReVit, I would definitely recommend following the suggestions of Silk'n and start the process slowly. Though we all want to get great skin the sooner the better, diving into this treatment process to aggressively is not the way to go, and you can actually do more harm than good. I started out with the fine treatment head and a slow vacuum setting. It wasn't long into this first treatment I felt I could adjust to a more intense suction setting and the process still went smoothly. There was some redness to my skin following the treatment (normal), and even my daughter remarked at how smooth my skin felt. I followed up the treatment with a splash of water on my face to remove any left over sloughed off skin cells, and moisturizer. I took off the treatment head to clean it and couldn't believe how much dead skin the filter had picked up! It felt so nice to have such a fresh face!

How Does It Work?

Dermabrasion Tip exfoliation Gentle, non-abrasive exfoliation to allow for smoother, fresher skin.

Vacuum stimulation Helps stimulate for smoother, more youthful looking skin. It helps improve skin tone, texture and elasticity. It helps reduce the appearance of age spots. It helps reduces the appearance of fine lines around the eyes for an overall smoother looking skin.

  Silk'n ReVit treats your skin in a matter of minutes. It removes dead skin cells, drawing them into the device by means of vacuum. The dead skin cells are collected in a replaceable filter. When you change the filter you will see the quantity of dead particles previously attached to your skin. However, it is the mirror that provides the ultimate proof of your treated skin. Balance has been restored, your complexion is more even and your skin is visibly smoother and younger-looking than before! - Silk'n ReVit Website Product Description

 After my first two treatments, I noticed a change in the evenness in the tone of my complexion, my pores being unclogged, and fewer blackheads. The most noticeable immediate benefit was the next morning when I applied my makeup. It went on smoothly and flaws that my makeup used to not be able to cover were barely noticeable. My makeup also lasts longer these days because I'm applying it to true skin, and not layers of dead skin cells.

I've continued to use the ReVit twice a week for about four weeks and have continued to see improvement. My lighter acne scars are beginning to disappear completely and some of the more deep scars are beginning to fade. I am also hardly ever getting any new pimples - the ReVit keeps my pores free of dead skin that probably caused a lot of them in the first place! More so than the immediate results I'm seeing, I'm excited to finally have found a product that not only works, but one that I can use in my own home. I fully anticipate that my skin will continue to show improvements overtime as I continue to use the ReVit, and truly, with such a budget friendly product, I wish someone had told me about this little gem sooner! If you are looking for the answer to improving your skin's texture and complexion, you won't be disappointed with the Silk'n ReVit!
