NuBrilliance Elite Pro is a home microdermabrasion tool that the makers claim uses a diamond head and suction to remove dead skin, revealing fresh skin underneath. They promise this gets rid of blemishes, cellulite, enlarged pores, and fine lines and you will look years younger after just 5-10 minutes of use.

NuBrilliance Elite Pro is said to be a new and improved version of the original NuBriliance; the tout the main difference is this version is cordless, smaller, and gives better results at a fraction of the cost. But does it really? Let’s see…

What is Microdermabrasion?

First, we should explain what microdermabrasion is. This is basically a very fancy way to remove dead skin cells from the face and body: micro (small) derma (skin) abrasion (scrub). The abrasion tool runs across a section of the skin, either using inert crystals or, in the case of NuBrilliance Elite Pro, a tiny diamond tip. Microdermabrasion treatments dislodge the top layer of skin, known as the stratum corneum, and follows up with a tiny bit of suction to remove it. This reveals a fresh new layer, free of some blemishes or fine lines.

The NuBrilliance Elite Pro Pitch

The makers of NuBrilliance (Emson, Inc.) are targeting women who may have heard of the original NuBrilliance or microdermabrasion and are hoping to tempt them with a lower price and allegedly improved product, which they tout as the “next generation.” They have testimonials from actresses and models who have used the Elite Pro as well a couple of plastic surgeons who promise it gives you pro results. Several say they loved the old product but the Elite Pro is even better.

How NuBrilliance Elite Pro Works

NuBrilliance Elite Pro is a handheld microdermabrasion machine with a turquoise body and 3 interchangeable diamond heads (Fine and Precision for the face, or Coarse for the rest of the body). To use NuBrilliance Elite Pro, choose the head that fits your needs. Then, they instruct you to rub across the skin. They say the diamond will remove the old skin and the suction will pull it away from your body. They add the suction improves circulation and stimulates collagen, which keeps skin firm. They state that after 5-10 minutes you will look noticeably younger and with weeks or months of use it will eradicate wrinkles, collagen, and blemishes.

NuBrilliance Elite Pro Costs How Much?

$59.85. They mask this by saying it’s 3 payments of $19.95. If you purchase it this way, you have a 30-day money back guarantee and 1 year warranty. However, if you pay for the whole thing at once, they give you a 60-day money back guarantee and 3 year warranty. (If you do return it, you must pay to ship it back.)

Bottom Line: Our NuBrilliance Elite Pro Review and Observation

NuBrilliance Elite Pro may indeed suck off dead skin from your face. But we think we should mention:

  • says microdermabrasion may be good for “superficial skin problems” and offers “minimal benefits.”
  • Microdermabrasion does not work on deep discoloration or heavy wrinkles.
  • If you use it too often, you may develop a rash.
  • Customer service had no information about battery or charging NuBrilliance Elite Pro. (As of October 2014 this is a new product and we were told to check back.)

The original NuBrilliance received 3 out of 5 stars from almost 200 reviews on Amazon. Many complained of suction problems that this product version may have addressed. If you are interested in NuBrilliance Elite Pro, we recommend waiting at least until there is sufficient information about battery/charging before ordering.
