Basically does the same thing, except that microdermabrasion is shooting crystals at your skin with air. That does exfoliate well, but causes small microtears in the skin that are not good for skin health.
We are so focused on fast results in our society, we start ignoring long-term health of the skin. Skin gets healthier, looks better, and ages less in the long run when we are gentler to our skin. Gentler cleansers and gentler exfoliation are the two biggest things people need to focus on to improve their skin.
So not only is this much less expensive than microdermabrasion, it is actually healthier for the skin and in the long run, your skin will reward you for this gentler approach.

I have never received professional microdermabrasion and can honestly say, thanks to this product, that I never will have to pay those prices to get the results I am looking for. I have noticed a complete change in my skin -- even after the first use. I am so thankful I discovered this product.

I used to get professional MIcrodermabrasion once every 6 weeks. Ive recently switched over to using this product (combined with a Claudalie Peel) once every 2 weeks and honestly my skin has never looked better. So yes, if you keep up with the regimen, it can be better (and more cost efficient)

What is excellent about this product is that yes, it does cost approximately $80, this one jar will last anywhere between 5-7 months (if used twice a week). That will save you money as you are not making repeated payments of $80/month for a professional microdermabration. You will receive the same results for less.
