Counterfeit Sylvan Microdermabrasion Machines are being found around the US, UK, and Australia. Be very careful as the quality is NOT the same. The Sylvan Company 4 in 1 machine design is protected by US patent D593,427 S. If you see the identical looking machine without the "Sylvan" name on it then this is a Counterfeit. The fake Microdermabrasion machines have been designed to LOOK the same, but they have left out all the key features inherent to the authentic Sylvan Company Machine.
There are several variations, and all are poor quality.
The fake microdermabrasion machines have Chinese made compressor motors which are very poor quality. Sylvan Company machines have Japanese made compressor motors.
The fake microdermabrasion machines have "cathode" function as part of the skin scrubber, this function is completely redundant and makes the operation complicated.
They have poor quality internal components PCB, and wiring. They can be fire hazards because there is no UL approval.
Some are claiming that these counterfeit machines have microcurrent and 5 functions instead of 4, but they do NOT.
Be careful as these imitation sets are being sold as "the same as Sylvan" or "same as Sylvan design". They are NOT the same design & the quality is inferior at best... at worst highly dangerous.
