PMD™ Personal Microderm Review

I am turning 40 next year and my skin is starting to show the signs of aging after a lifetime of exposure to the Florida sun. I choose to avoid surgical and invasive treatments so to keep my skin looking and feeling its best, I have had professional microdermabrasion in the past at the doctor’s office. While I was always pleased with the results, visits to the dermatologist were very pricey and as a busy mom it wasn’t always easy to get away for the necessary series of treatments.

I was thrilled to discover PMD™ Personal Microderm which is a professional quality system that can be used at home! By nature, I am skeptical of products that seem “too good to be true” but in this case the PMD™ Personal Microderm results are far exceeding my expectations.

How does it work? The Personal Microderm unit has the exact same aluminum oxide crystals used by doctor’s offices so you can now achieve those glowing results at home for a mere fraction of the cost. For exfoliating, this product is exceptional and has replaced all of the exfoliating scrubs in my beauty regime. It can be used on the face, hands, feet or whatever area you would like to exfoliate and the vacuum suction will remove all of the dead skin.

After first watching a video visual demonstration about how to use this system, I was ready to get started. I thoroughly cleansed and dried my face, neck and chest area. I selected the correct disc for my skin and attached it to the device. You can select the smaller sized discs that are colored for either sensitive or “tougher” facial skin and the larger discs are included for other areas of the body. I braced the skin with one hand pulling my skin taut and moved one pass (never more than two passes over one area per instructions) over the area where the device exfoliates and suctions away dirt, sebum etc. from the pores. I have sensitive, fair skin and immediately after using this product it had a nice pinkness to it that disappeared after 30 minutes and there was absolutely no irritation at all from using this product. My skin literally has a glow to it with or without makeup. I don’t wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis preferring just a bit of blush, lipstick and mascara over a tinted moisturizer with no foundation.

The PMD™ device is very easy to use (lots of instructional information included with the product and on the website) and I love that it is not bulky so it does not take up a lot of space. I use PMD™ once per week and can’t wait to see continued results on my freckle discolorations, hyper-pigmentation and overall skin quality.

PMD™ Personal Microderm has been featured on Dr. Oz, Good Morning America and In Style magazine. I highly recommend this product for anyone who is looking for an effective, non-invasive skin care treatment that really works. It saves me time and money which are both very valuable to me and more importantly the PMD™ delivers results in the comfort of my own home.

You are invited to visit the PMD™ website to learn more about how this product works and to purchase your own Personal Microderm unit. At only $179, this entire set is less than what I have paid in the past for a professional treatment…..well worth it in my opinion to have skin that looks and feels great!
