PMD Personal Microderm Review and How To

Here is my very own PMD Personal Microderm Review, and results. I’ve been using the famous at home PMD Personal Microderm System now for 7  years! 

My skin now has ZERO wrinkles and NOW I look even younger than I did five years ago! This is a BIG secret how I look so young!

Don’t be intimidated by this big noisy beauty tool, it’s for serious skincare results and for the maintenance of perfect skin.  I wanted to wait until I learned all about Microdermabrasion and its safety before I purchased this PMD Personal Microderm System.

I wish I bought this a lot sooner because my skin now has an even tone! Let me tell you about my PMD Personal Microderm Review. By the way, I’m all about DIY, do it yourself, and saving money. Save yourself a trip to the salon. This beauty tool is a wise investment!

Why I purchased the PMD Personal Microderm System

My skin had little rough patches of skin on my temples and forehead that were slightly darker than the rest of my light/medium complexion (sun damage) The funny thing is that I’m hardly ever in the sun. Exfoliating with scrubs didn’t seem to improve it nor did serums.

I had a noticeable uneven skin tone I was hiding under makeup. After a week of reading all about microdermabrasion and asking friends that have gone to a real beauty spa and had the whole expensive “Hollywood” spa service and fancy skincare experience with facials and rose petals in the water, I noticed their reviews of microdermabrasion were all positive and even life-changing! One friend actually quit going to her esthetician after having her own PMD Personal Microderm System.

One friend of mine goes monthly to maintain her clear skin and she says it’s so expensive! It was that evening while shopping online I bought my own and now I’m sharing my PMD Personal Microderm review with you.

I use the PMD Personal Microderm once every month

What is the PMD Personal Microderm System Microdermabrasion Device?

PMD Personal Microderm Review

In a nutshell, it’s to remove the top thin layer of your skin, to reveal your new skin cells. And new skin cells are so much prettier and vibrant than dull old skin cells. This is a handheld skin care tool equipped with two different sizes of disc attachments used for skin exfoliation.

The two different sized discs offer two different grit levels for exfoliation. The blue disc is for sensitive skin and the green is for normal skin. I use the blue one for the areas around my eyes and the green one for everywhere else including my hands.

When this is held to the skin, a suction will pull the skin towards the rotating disc, stimulating your skin’s blood flow, and will gently remove the thin outer layer of dull and dead skin cells from the surface. Don’t be scared of cutting your face or causing damage! The only way you could possibly go wrong with this is if you keep it spinning too long in one area.

My PMD Personal Microderm Review :

My skin that has been exfoliated! By the PMD Personal Microderm. Looks like dust!

The first time I tried using it, I read the instructions, watched the CD and felt like a pro. I used it after I took a shower at night and had clean dried skin.

I Just plugged it in and use the green disc on my hand to get the hang of holding it steady. Easy, I applied it to my face starting on my cheek using slow horizontal lines towards my nose. It didn’t hurt, I could feel it sucking my skin, but the disc spins so fast I can’t really notice anything “scrubbing” my face.

It felt very gentle. However, the noise it makes is a little loud I think. Then again remember you’re using a powered tool. You get used to the noise. When I started gliding it gently,  I could see it leaving a trail of my exfoliated skin behind looking like a fine powder.

Wow, that’s my face exfoliating as I’ve NEVER seen before! I wiped that trail of powdery dust with the back of my hand and saw a lighter shade of skin emerge! I would like to point out that this made my skin lighter because it removed the tan I had on my skin, this does not whiten skin. Baby soft skin was hiding under there. I used the PMD Microderm in sections, using the green disc to: my cheeks, my chin, my forehead, and then carefully around my eyes (with the blue disc) and the small disc on my nose.

The first thing I did when I was done, I splashed my face with lukewarm water to remove the dust. (my exfoliated skin) Yay! I looked up in the mirror in amazement with a lighter color and brighter skin.

I looked immediately more healthy. I closely examined my skin and rubbed my hands feeling the softness, I felt some exposed blackhead coming out of a couple of the pores. I was able to gently push them out. The PMD Microderm system was able to knock it loose!

PMD Personal Microderm System Review for ACNE

The PMD Personal Microderm System will do wonders for acne-prone skin! I haven’t had a bad breakout since I started using it. The reason behind that is the fact the microdermabrasion process is erasing the old layer of skin that isn’t properly shedding itself because it’s sluggish.

This sluggish skin that’s not naturally shedding fast enough is trapping oil and bacteria deep in your skin! Skin slows down the shedding process as we get older. I noticed that in areas my skin is oily such as around my nose where I had visible pores after using the PMD Microderm system I’d look at the tip I was just using and it would look oily!

This is because not only is the vacuum suction extracting the trapped oil and dirt in your pores, it’s exfoliating the dead layer off to expose the oil head-on! Wow! This PMD Microderm system really helped me out preventing breakouts because it went to the root source. It also helped my friend with her acne scars over time.

I highly recommend this for acne sufferers. People with acne-prone skin will notice a ton of exfoliated skin in the collection cap and filter of the PMD Microderm hand held device. The tips you use may also look oily after you’re done.

UPDATE: My long term results with this fancy PMD Personal Microdermabrasion System

It’s been 7 years that I’ve been using the PMD Microderm system I first started using it once every 2 weeks to ease into the process of gently removing the old layers of skin. Now I used it once a month to maintain the exfoliation to keep the fresh skin glowing! I have an even skin tone now, especially on my forehead.

If I could compare my skin to how it was 2 1/2 years ago, I would say I have younger-looking skin today and no forehead wrinkles or sun damage. This is a really great investment for your skincare because it goes to the root of the problem and fixes it. It defiantly fixed my problem with an uneven skin tone. This Microderm also helps make all your other beauty products perform better and absorb deeper especially facials. Your skin will soak up the good stuff for nurturing your skin better. I also can’t stress enough this is great for anyone that has congested skin/ acne breakouts. The PMD will help unclog those pores!

PMD Personal Microderm System – Tip for Best Results

I suggest shaving your face and removing the peach fuzz. Please read: Women How to Shave Your Face + 5 Beauty Benefits

  1. I suggest you take your time using the device to make sure you are using careful movements with even pressure. This will make sure you evenly exfoliate the skin. You don’t want to leave streaks in your skin.
  2. Don’t hold the device too long in the same spot.
  3. Schedule your PMD sessions to ensure your skin will be in the right shape prior to use (I use mine once every month)
  4. Don’t use any harsh cleansers before using the PMD, you don’t want to dry out your skin. Use a nonsoap cleanser always.
  5. Replace the discs at least once every three months for consistent results.
  6. When going outside, wear sunscreen
  7. After removing the dead skin, moisturize and re-balance your skin’s PH using Rosehip Oil. Read Rosehip Oil Benefits

PMD Personal Microderm Review – Can I use it on my Body?

*UPDATE Yes, I have just started using the PMD Microderm on my hands to remove the tiny wrinkles on my hands and fingers. I also tried it on my neck, it works. It takes longer to see results on your body because your skin is actually thicker on your body than on your face.

I also have a DIY How to remove wrinkles on fingers.

  1. I have been using it for for a few weeks and with no problem. Yes, I can see visible results. However, yesterday I changed the tool for sensitive skin and for some reason one side of my face has deep red scratches. I look as though I’ve been in a very bad cat fight. It was the first side I did when I tried the new tool. The other side of my face was fine. Had I not applied the tool correctly? Was this a manufacturing problem? Will my skin scar? All I know it burned like the dickens and now I’m afraid to use it again.

    1. Hi Ela,
      For now, try to keep that scratched skin out of the sun, you don’t want it to scar. Sounds like you have very sensitive skin. Did you you it lightly and only go over the skin area once? You should try the blue discs, they’re for sensitive skin. It’s hard to use at first and apply even pressure. I had to practice on my hand and I had a problem scratching my hand because I kept the pmd in one spot for too long. You skin will most likely heal fast. It might go through a peeling stage because you’re sensitive. Just apply moisturizer! Practice makes perfect, I love my PMD! Good luck!

    2. new disks need to be smoothed out before use. turn the device on with new disk and hold it against your palm for for ten seconds before first use. good luck. always read the instructions.

  2. I would love to own my own PMD because I have a lot of acne scars and they make me insecure so I always cover them up with makeup. I would love love love if my skin looked more bright and vibrant!

  3. I would love a PMD of my own as I get quite dry skin sometimes and I’ve tried loads of products to get rid of it but everytime I put makeup on that area I get really insecure that people will see it xxx

  4. i would love a PMD because I have acne scars on my face and body and would love to feel more confident with clear , smooth skin

  5. I would love to win the PMD because I have been a beauty blog follower for years now, and have only watched videos and would be excited about it, then scared when I saw horror stories, but then when I get that sun spot, or that one bad acne scar I always go back to “what would it be like with the PMD”. I think that I am ready to try it because I do want to have my sun spot fade away, and even out my skin tone, because I feel like my forehead is darker than my face, and I have a scar on my chin from my cousin jumping and getting me with her teeth (while laughing) but basically left me with a scar on my chin of her two front teeth. So, now more than ever, I am ready to try the PMD! 🙂 I would definitely use it, and maybe even have a spa day with my mom, sister, and cousins to have everyone try it out! I was never the best at make up so I only wore BB creams so I haven’t mastered concealer/foundation, and everything that I would need to cover scars, so having the PMD to clear up my skin would be a GOD SEND! I am already self conscious about my skin as it is, so much so that I would retouch photos before posting them because I am embarrassed at the scars that I can’t cover, because I never really found the best concealer/foundation mix for my skin tone. I think it is hard to match as well because I am Asian and a lot of foundations have the pink undertone where I would need a more yellow and it is expensive buying Asian products to have them shipped just for it to not be the right color match or anything so I just gave up and went with BB creams and haven’t tried concealer after having a few bad experiences with it. I am so ready to try again with products and the PMD for sure! 🙂 I would most look forward to 1. Even skin tone, 2. Acne scars fading, and 3. Reducing pore size!! Thank you for the opportunity and your skin looks amazing hoping mine can get that way too! (so that I can say my photos were not digitally retouched)

  6. Dear Jen
    (I’m sorry for my english)
    This is the story of my life
    I have acne scars.
    .My friends tell me I’m pretty, skinny, tall.
    Give me compliments
    But I dont feel that way.
    Every morning I get up, look in the mirror and I have tears in my eyes
    Years I tried every possible treatment
    I’m tired of putting amounts of makeup on my face for the cover.
    I’m tired of hiding from the light
    I dont let people get close to me too much to not be able them to see the texture on my face
    I WISH TO BE LIKE the girls who do not need to hide! And be ashamed!
    Live without worry that people will hate you because of how you look.
    We live in a society that judges and bad.
    People DONT care THAT you have a good soul, if you do not look like a Barbie doll
    You are do not exist!

    One day I see the PMD
    I watched videos on YouTube
    And I see it was the only thing! That could help me
    This is my last hope.
    I believe that the PMD will improve my situation!
    Improve my face, they will look better
