For those of you who have spent a lot of money on microdermabrasion in spas and salons, the PMD Personal Microderm is going to be something you will fall in love with. If you have never had microdermabrasion, you have probably heard of the benefits it can provide. The challenge is making the time and spending the money on treatments. Now, there is a device that you can use at home that provides all the wonderful benefits of treatments purchased in high end beauty spas and skin clinics.
The PMD Personal Microderm is an extraordinary offering in skin care. This device is a safe tool that combines the power of patented spinning disc technology and perfectly calibrated vacuum suction. The device helps remove the dead, dull skin cell barrier, increase blood flow, and stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This leads to a more clear, youthful, radiant, and smooth complexion. It can also minimize the appearance of fine lines and even out the skin tone. These are qualities we all continuously chase with products and procedures. Up until recently, the closest I have been able to get at home is using exfoliating products. Now, I have the new PMD Personal Microderm device, and I’m able to get more effective results than exfoliation alone.
The evolution of the PMD Personal Microderm
If you are anything like me, you may be wondering where did this device come from and what’s the history behind it? How can we be sure it’s a safe and effective product? There’s no question microdermabrasion has been highly regarded for many years. Actually, historians have identified the process of microdermabrasion dates back to 1500 B.C. In 2003, the PMD Personal Microderm device was the first of it’s kind to come to market and a year later it was validated to be equivalent to costly professional machines. I’m always looking for clinical studies. Clinical studies carry the most weight with me. I found some compelling data regarding a study done in late 2004 with this device:
At the University of California, San Francisco with 54 patients (44 female, 10 male) in a clinical study, the following was reported after a trial with the PMD Personal Microderm:
- 70% improvement in wrinkles
- 80% improvement in sun damage
- 173% improvement in skin roughness (Whoa!)
- overall skin improvement of 70%
Since the clinical study, PMD conducted a grassroots launch, was featured on Dr. Oz, and has been gaining popularity and creating buzz. It has become available in leading beauty retailers such as Sephora and Ulta. All this certainly sparked my interest!
My experience using the PMD Personal Microderm
I have struggled with cyclic dry skin each month. In addition, living in Phoenix, my skin is parched all year long if not intently cared for. The scorching summer causes severe dryness and winters can be chilly and extremely dry which does no favors for my skin either. As a result, I am diligent with skin care and I’ve gone as far as having professional chemical peels to renew and revive my skin. I was really excited to find out about the PMD Personal Microderm that allows me to pace my microdermabrasion treatments, save money, and determine the needed intensity. Since I have been using the device, I have noticed my skin is very clear, smooth, and my skin readily absorbs my serums, moisturizers, and anti-aging products. What I have noticed the most since using the PMD Personal Microderm is the clarity and radiance it brought to my skin. I noticed this within a month and I use the product 1-2 times per week. There are both facial and body discs available for purchase in a various ranges of intensity depending on your needs.
I will admit, I was a bit nervous at first to try this device. I had derma-planing done once and it caused a major breakout with my skin. I was afraid to try the PMD Personal Microderm fearing I could experience a break out. I found that there were many bloggers and beauty experts who tested the product and experienced positive results. I couldn’t find anyone reporting they had a negative experience. Users reported their skin texture and acne improved. The device comes with a very mild disc to start which gave me the ability to ease into using the product and get comfortable with how it feels. I found the introductory disc left my skin feeling ultra smooth and refreshed so I was excited to build up to more intense treatments. Within two weeks, I began using the moderate blue disc that came with my device and I love how smooth and radiant my skin has become. My makeup looks flawless and I find myself excited to put my makeup on and observe the changes. I’m also comfortable not wearing any make up at all!
A great training video is available to guide new users through using the device. I found after the first use, I had the hang of it. You can watch the vide here:
