If you're looking for microdermabrasion devices, you probably have a very specific idea of what you want it to treat. Microdermabrasion devices are great for treating acne and acne scars, scarring on the body, and for improving the facial skin tone. If you're looking at the Riiviva device, in particular, you probably know that it's incredibly customisable with a number of Riiviva tips available, and each one is perfect for treating a different problem.
With all these options available, how are you supposed to choose the correct Riiviva tips?
If your only skin concerns occur from the neck up, then you can safely assume the Riiviva Facial device and Riiviva Tips for the face will be the perfect match for you. These can be used on all areas of the face to help with fine lines, wrinkles and dry skin. They come in different levels of coarseness so you can choose the intensity of the treatment.

If your skin concerns are elsewhere on your body – think cellulite, scarring, stretch marks – then you should go for the Riiviva Body device and pair it with Riiviva tips for the body. The Body Tip comes in a medium and coarse grit and the larger head makes it perfect for treating larger areas in less time. These tips can help with dry skin, any redness of the skin and the overall texture. Also try Chest Tips, Cellulite Tips and Stretch Mark Tips
