[Video] Tried & Tested: Philips VisaCare Microdermabrasion SC6240/01

We have shared about the Philips Visacare Microdermabrasion SC6240/01 device earlier this month and after testing it out, we think this device is what you need to perk up your face!

The Philips Visacare Microdermabrasion SC6240/01 has a DualAction Air Lift and Exfoliation system that massages and exfoliates at the same time to stimulate the resurfacing of the skin for firmer, smoother and radiant skin.

  • The exfoliating tip renews and unveils smoother, refined skin by stimulating your natural cell renewal process. It also gently nudges away roughness, flakiness to refine the skin and prepare it for better absorption of your favourite mask or cream after use.
  • The Air Lift System creates a gentle, stimulating massage action which encourages blood circulation while removing dead skin cells and revitalizing your skin.

Here’s a quick video on how to use the Philips VisaCare Microdermabrasion SC6240/01!

  1. Cleanse your face and pat it dry.
  2. When you use the device for the first time, test the tip on your forearm before you use it on your face. Move the device over your skin once and then wait for approximately one hour. If a possible skin reaction diminishes, you can safely use the tip on your face. (Always visually check the tip before use to see if it is damaged. A damaged tip scratches your skin. If the tip is damaged, replace it.)
  3. Put the tip on your face in such a way that you feel the suction. Make sure there is always full skin contact between the tip and the area to be treated. However, do not press the tip hard onto the skin’s surface.
  4. Gently move the tip in straight lines. See the illustrations below to see directions for different parts of your face. (You can use your free hand to stretch and hold the skin. Move the device away from your hand to make it easier to get proper suction especially on your temples and cheeks.)
  5. Tried & Tested: Philips VisaCare Microdermabrasion SC6240/01-Pamper.myDo take note to not move the device over large moles, tattoos, port wine stains or permanent makeup. Also, do not use it below or above the delicate eye area.
  6. Depending on the type of tip and the condition of your skin, pass the device over each area a number of times:
  • First use: Pass the Sensitive tip over each area 1 or 2 times.
  • After several uses: Pass the Sensitive tip over each area 4 to 6 times or start using the Normal tip. When you use the Normal tip, move the device over each area 3-4 times. When your skin is used to the device, move the device over each area 4-6 times.

Philips VisaCare Microdermabrasion-Pamper.My-02A complete session takes approximately 5 minutes and after that, apply a nourishing mask or face cream to your skin. Do not do any form of chemical or mechanical exfoliation, electrolysis, facial waxing and depilatories for 3 days after this treatment. You can continue with your makeup routine after you moisturized your face. Use this device for a maximum of twice a week only.

My Verdict

At first, it felt a little weird because it’s sucking onto my skin and I was concerned about the redness on my skin but once you got the hang of it, you’ll get used to the sensation and it’s actually stimulating the blood circulation which in turn, brightens up your skin too! It definitely helps to remove water retention and bloating on my face. Plus, it’s great that there’s an option to change between the Normal to Sensitive tip according to your skin’s condition. A nice tool to add to your beauty arsenal for those days when your face needs to look more ‘alive’!
