PMD Personal Microderm Reviews -The At-Home Facial Experience!

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.

My Experience

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.

PMD-Personal-Microderm-ReviewsThe 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).


PMD Personal Microderm Man

  1. The best exfoliating experience I've ever had!
  2. My skin looked and felt amazing with many blackheads and clogged pores now being open and clear.
  3. Enhances blood flow to your face stimulating collagen and elastin production.
  4. Translates to reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and blemish spots!
  5. 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.
  6. Customer service is amazing!


  1. Hefty Price Tag (PRICE UPDATE!): Was $149 , now only $99 (for PMD Personal Microderm)
  2. May get red marks when starting off because of lack of experience with the device.
  3. 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.

Final Thoughts

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.

Overall Rating: 9/10

  1. Hi Kent, Thanks for your review on this homecare beauty machine.
    I wonder why the men’s one is slightly higher in price than the ladies, Lol. It’s normally the other way around. Does the men’s one have an extra feature?
    Also can you tell me if the experience of using it was relaxing at all? Many Thanks.

    1. Hi Tracy! Thanks for checking out my product review. I completely agree with you, it is very unusual that the men’s version is more expensive. The only thing I can think of is that the men’s version comes with more exfoliation discs up to the red color (very coarse disc). With regards to your second question, I don’t know if “relaxing” is the right word, but the word that does come to mind is definitely “satisfying”. When I’m done using it, I know I’m doing something good for my skin. Have you used anything similar to PMD before? Do you maybe have a friend or family member who has tried it?

  2. Wow! Thank you for this really detailed review! You’re right, a lot of the time the quick and glossed over reviews you find of a product don’t really help much and with a price tag like that I want to be sure.

    I have fairly sensitive skin personally (can’t use a lot of chemicals and very few soaps and moisturizers without getting itchy red skin) but have had a lot of luck with exfoliating products in general. I’m really hoping a product like this one will help me take care of my skin better since my options are so limited.

    That being said, I see that you mentioned it might not be good for sensitive skin. Is that true for skin that’s sensitive to chemicals only?

    1. Hi Trace! Thanks for your feedback on my product review. The reason why I listed the part about the PMD possibly not being good for sensitive skin is to emphasize the importance in starting with the training disc, even if you don’t have sensitive skin. The training disc allows for you to see how your skin will respond to a disc with minimal friction. What happens is, with continued use, your skin “adapts” to the disc and is able to build a “tolerance” of sorts as repeated collagen stimulation and elastin production allows for increased skin resilience. You’ll eventually hit a “sweet spot” and know which disc works best for you at which point you can stick with that disc for as long as you would like. If you’re currently using a skin care regimen that doesn’t irritate your skin, then I wouldn’t be too concerned. I hope this helps. 🙂

  3. I had a dermaroller for scalp and instead of growing more hair. I lost plenty of hair. it was just really difficult to digest that after buying an expensive dermaroller, it never worked properly. However, I realized later that one needs to use these devices carefully and I seriously have no experience in using them properly, so can you suggest a youtube video that would help use the pmd personal microderm?

    1. Hi Shrey! Thanks for taking a look at my product review. I’m sorry to hear about your bad experience with a dermaroller. I have heard about those products, but haven’t personally tried them. With regards to the PMD Personal Microderm system, I think you make a very good point. When trying new products, you have to be very careful. I hadn’t really thought about making a Youtube video because I have no experience with making Youtube videos, but perhaps I will have to look into that further. Please let me know if you have any other comments or questions, I’ll be more than happy to answer them.

  4. I was actually looking at a product similar to this one on Facebook, and I was tempted to get it. When you used it was it painful for you at all? I have pretty sensitive skin, and I turned red for a bit after I had a chemical peel. This review was very helpful. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Hi Josephine! Thank you for checking out my product review for the PMD Personal Microderm. I have always struggled with oily skin and some areas of my face have larger pores than I would like. Before getting the PMD Personal Microderm, I didn’t really do too much in terms of exfoliation. After using the PMD, I was shocked at how much dead skin cells and oily contents from clogged pores that got sucked out. It left my skin feeling as smooth as I have ever felt it. 

      To answer your question, I wouldn’t say it hurts, it’s just a different sensation to have the product providing a decent amount of suction on your skin. To minimize the chance of skin irritation, it is vitally important to keep the product moving smoothly over your skin without staying in one spot for more than a half a second or so. Also, it is recommended that you don’t go any area of your skin more than once. If you have sensitive skin, you can start off with the white or gray discs that are for very sensitive skin. 

      If you do decide to try the PMD Personal Microderm system, please let me know how it works for you. Also, if you have any other questions or comments, please feel free to message me, I’d be more than happy to help.
