Hello everyone! Today's post will be focusing on an amazing product system that I've personally used and for this reason, I wanted to provide a platform for providing PMD Personal Microderm reviews. My hope is that after I talk about my personal experience with the product system, many of you will be able to try the product for yourself and then share your honest experience with the PMD Personal Microderm System. I know this is a lengthy review, but I honestly wish I would have had more detailed reviews like this to read before making up my mind to finally purchase the PMD Personal Microderm System.
I've always been obsessed with skin care throughout a majority of my life so to have the opportunity to have a microdermabrasion experience was seemingly a no-brainer.
However, given that I've accrued a large sum of financial debt from my education, I just wasn't sure if I was willing to pay $150 or more on a skin care device. I waited weeks and poured over review after review, and then some ... It wasn't until several weeks later when I got a bonus at work that I decided to order the product.
When the package arrived, I was ecstatic! I could finally try the product I had been eyeballing for months now. The package included The Personal Microderm Tool with the Electric Power Cord and multiple exfoliating discs. Additionally included were 2 caps (1 large for body exfoliation and 1 small for facial exfoliation), 1 reusable filter, and written instructions provided with an instructional DVD.
The exfoliating discs are designed to range from a relatively smooth texture to an increasingly coarse texture for increased exfoliation. The idea is to start with the "training" disc and progressively work your way up to coarser discs. There is 1 white "training" disc, 2 grey (very sensitive) discs, 2 blue (sensitive) discs, and 2 green (moderate) discs.
The general mechanism behind the product's effectiveness combines the use of the exfoliating discs with a unique vacuum suction that works in combination to remove dead skin cells from the surface, enhance blood flow to the facial arterial vessels, which in turn stimulates the body's natural production of collagen and elastin.
Over time, the PMD works to brighten, smooth, and even skin tone and texture while providing the added benefit of reducing fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and blemish spots. In other words, the PMD leaves you with radiant, smooth, glowing skin!
After I read through the instructions and watched the DVD, I was ready to finally use it for the first time. When I connected everything and placed the PMD device on my face, I remember going over my whole face thinking "this doesn't have much suction"! It wasn't until a week later (because you're not supposed to use it more than once every 6-7 days) when I tried using it a second time that I realized I hadn't screwed on the cap all the way the first time (this is absolutely imperative).
The cap must be screwed on tightly to ensure proper suction. When using the device the second time (now with unbelievable suction), it took a little bit of getting used to. The key is to keep the device moving in steady movements across your skin without letting it linger in one spot for more than moment. Otherwise, you'll end up with red marks on your face (that go away after a couple days).
When I was done, I was actually quite shocked at how much sebum and dead skin cells the device had collected. When I applied a moisturizer afterwards, my skin felt so smooth, I couldn't think of a time in my adult life that it had been so smooth. I was definitely convinced at that point that no facial scrub could ever compare with the PMD Personal Microderm.
I must admit the specific device I used was actually the PMD Personal Microderm Man product, which is essentially the same as the PMD Personal Microderm System, except that it's black and rather than stopping at the green disc color, there is an additional red disc option (very coarse).
- The best exfoliating experience I've ever had!
- My skin looked and felt amazing with many blackheads and clogged pores now being open and clear.
- Enhances blood flow to your face stimulating collagen and elastin production.
- Translates to reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and blemish spots!
- Any skin care products applied to your skin after treatment get absorbed a lot more efficiently leading to enhanced results from other skin care products in your skin care regimen.
- Customer service is amazing!
- Hefty Price Tag (PRICE UPDATE!):
Was $149, now only $99 (for PMD Personal Microderm)
- $175 (for PMD Personal Microderm Man)
- May get red marks when starting off because of lack of experience with the device.
- It is recommended NOT to use this product if you have extremely sensitive skin or are using chemical peels, hydroxy acids, retinols, retin A or other similar products.
Overall, I have been very pleased with the product and use it consistently most weeks. I would definitely recommend purchasing the PMD Personal Microderm System for women and the PMD Personal Microderm Man product for men who are serious about taking care of their skin and "turning back the clock" a few years naturally. With the holiday season already upon us, this would make a great gift idea for your friends and/or family.
