Personal Microderm Review with Promo-Code
PMD Personal Microderm is an at home microdermabrasion machine and kit.
'PMD Personal Microderm allow you to achieve the skin rejuvenation and anti-aging results of a professional microdermabrasion treatment in the convenience of your own home. This system reveals younger looking skin by using the same aluminum oxide crystals found in the equipment at the doctor's office.It smooths away dead skin cells, diminishing age spots and other signs of aging."
I had professional microdermabrasion done years ago, and it really damaged my skin. I had scarring, discoloration and hyper pigmentation. Eventually it went away, but for weeks I had to deal with a discolored face and scabbing...no bueno!
When the company approached me about reviewing their product i was SERIOUSLY skeptical, but once I received it, and watched the instructional DVD, I decided to give it a try!
A while back I tried the supplement Biotin, to help strengthen my nails. Well, my nails got stronger, but one of the side effects are skin break-outs and I had it! I stopped taking the biotin immediately, but the scars from the break outs remained.
Here they are:
They are easily covered up with makeup, and are smooth, but they are still there. :(, and they are predominant on only one side of my face..LOL.
Okay so here is what the device looks like:
It's about the size of a microphone and fit comfortably in the hand. There is an outlet and cord that plug into the wall, so no annoying batteries to charge or charger stand to set-up.
Easy on off switch, no "setting levels" to worry about, just "on", and "off". And when the unit is on, it sounds like an electric toothbrush.
This is what the "head" looks like with out the attachments.
Then you add the felt disk. This ensures that all the dead skin cells do not get down into the machine. After every use you just rinse this off under cool water, and let air dry between uses.
This is the BLUE attachment. With the kit you get 2 different colored attachments, BLUE is "sensitive" and GREEN is "medium". First time users, should always start off with BLUE
You can buy an additional RED attachment for "coarse"
The attachments come in 2 sizes. Large for larger areas of the face and body and the small one for small areas of the face, like the crease in the nose and around the mouth.
There is also a protective cap that must be applied before every use. This provides the suction needed for the discs to have contact with the skin.
Use was super easy: Once a week, I washed my face and dried it.
Then, using CONTINUOUS strokes while keeping the skin tight with one hand, you glide the unit over your face, avoiding the eye areas. I only went over each area ONCE, and I never HOVERED IN ONE SPOT.
All in all, this process took 15 minutes and my skin was super soft after every use. I've done this 3 times and I can see a lightening in the spots already.
I'm definitely adding the PMD process to my weekly at-home spa treatments.
The PMDsystem includes 1 personal microderm, 5 exfoliating discs (2 green and 3 blue), 1 electric cord (Standard U.S. Outlet), 1 facial cap, 1 body cap, 1 reusable filter, Instructional CD and Pamphlet.
"This is ideal for those with fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, skin discolorations, and other imperfections who want smooth, even-toned skin."
