Has anyone done a microderrmabrasion on themselves with high end products such as Mary Kay or Avon?

A friend of mine is selling Mary Kay products and she is advocating that I buy a microdermabrasion kit and use it once a week and I will glow. Is this a safe product and is it a good idea to do it that often? I think I would rather have it done by a dermatologist.
It's probably the same or similar abrasive consistency as in-store Oil of Olay or over-the-web Pure Skin Formulation & safe to do once, maybe even twice, a week.

For an Rx strength microdermabrasion or acid peel you'd need a dermatologist.
It's not the same as what you'd get in the dermatologist's office. It's just a scrub and a lotion. I didn't like it...the lotion made my skin break out.

I bought the one from Neutrogena. The 1st time I used it I overdid it & really irritated my skin. I haven't used it since. I like using baking soda 2xs per week. It's mild & doesn't dry out my skin. There was a thread that talked about this. I'll try to find it.

I haven't had a professional one done, because it doesn't fit into my budget. A friend of mine had a series of them done, but we couldn't see a difference in her skin.
From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
i have one of those kits and use it once a week. and i had a professional one done about 4 years ago. my skin felt smoother for longer with the professional one, but it didn't do as much for my dark patches as peels did.

My skin is on the sensitive side, and I find microdermabrasion products too rough. I think one even gave me a few broken capillaries. I gave them up after that.

But if you have resistant (tough) skin, you might like microdermabrasion.

For me, mild chemical peels are a safer bet for at-home use. For strong peels, I would go to a professional.
