PMD helps women uncover their most vibrant, radiant complexion through an easy series of treatments. Looking good feels great, and PMD loves showing women the way to fresh, supple skin.

PMD Personal Microderm replicates the treatment given by professionals by using the same aluminum oxide crystals on the patented spinning discs. The hand-held tool uses vacuum action to gently pull skin towards the disc for optimum exfoliation. Once it removes the dead skin cells and reveals a clear, healthy complexion, your skin is able to absorb products much more effectively. The system includes several levels of exfoliating discs for a custom and controlled intensity.

With this tool, women of all skin types are able to rejuvenate their skin and build brilliant confidence. The PMD Personal Microderm tool unclogs pores, smooth's out skin, evens tone, reduces blemishes and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Precautions:
  • Do not use any peel products like alpha and beta hydroxy acid, retin A or retinol products 48 hours before or after using the PMD without consulting a physician.
  • Do not use if on Accutane or consult a physician.
  • Do not use if seeing a physician for serious skin conditions, have extremely sensitive skin or are taking prescriptions without consulting a physician.
  • Do not use directly above or below the eyes.
  • Do not hover in one spot.
    Do not keep going over the same spot multiple times. What the PMD is doing is not always visible. Be patient and learn over 2 to 3 uses how best to apply the treatments on your specific skin type.
  • Do not continue to apply the treatment if you feel pain. Pain will come if you have been too aggressive. You will feel tingling and distinct sensation but it should not be painful. Gauge this on your skin type.
  • Consult a physician if pregnant.

      Didn't see much of an improvement

      By Michelle

      from Eagle River, WI

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about PMD Personal Microderm Hand and Body Kit:

      I bought the PMD to use on my face (I'm 33 and I don't have many wrinkles, but I do get melasma in the summer on my upper lip and have clogged pores in a few spots) and so far I am not pleased with it. I have used the least abrasive of the heads and it still leaves tiger striped scratches on my cheeks that take days to go away. It doesn't work at all on my nose because it can't get suction, and i have tried it on my chin where i always seem to have an outcropping of clogged pores but have noticed no difference there. My melasma fades a lot in the winter so I haven't had a chance to see if it does anything for that- I will have to wait for summer.
      I started using it mainly on my body since it wrecks my face, and it seems to not do enough there. I have keratosis pilaris (chicken skin) on my inner knees (year round) and upper arms (mainly just in the winter), and although it does seem to help my upper arms if I do it regularly, it doesn't do anything for the skin on my knees. I also have a little KP on my upper outer thighs and that hasn't been affected by the PMD either.
      All in all it hasn't shown any benefit for any of my ailments and is too harsh for my face. Maybe it works magic on wrinkles but I can't recommend this product based on my personal experience.

      Horrible for my skin

        Cons

        • Caused break outs
        • Left red marks
        • Made face all red

        Best Uses

          Comments about PMD Personal Microderm Hand and Body Kit:

          The first few times I used this with a sensitive head I noticed no new improved results. My skin might have felt a tiny bit smoother but it was more red and irritated and broke me out. My skin looked terrible after using this product. I watched the how-to video a hundred times to make sure I was doing it safely and correctly. I thought I should just try a different head. So I did. And this time it left streak marks across my cheeks that lasted a full week. I was so scared the marks would never have left my face. I got rid of this device and have never used it since. I do not recommend. Microdermabrasion should be left to the experts at a skin clinic.

              Comments about PMD Personal Microderm Hand and Body Kit:

              I have had several microdermabrasion performed in MedSpas and the same can be accomplished with the PMD at a fraction of the cost. You really do need to know how your skin is going to react and need to start with the beginner pad until you know exactly how your skin is going to react. My best recommendations are to not go very slowly or make more than one pass over any are. Do not use pressure either. In reading the low scores I find that most are related to how you use the product your skin is too sensitive for the intensity of the pain you are using. Start out slow, read the directions and find the path that works best for your skin type. Just don't try to start it too aggressive or you will be disappointed this is a great product when used properly and will make a difference in your skin tone if used regularly

              Beauty essential

              By beautyenthusiast

              from Orlando, FL

              Comments about PMD Personal Microderm Hand and Body Kit:

              I cannot live without my PMD, Im hooked. I got this post-accutane to help with acne scars and to help with my fine lines (forehead, laugh lines). After about 6 months this device got rid of all my scarring, and my lines completely faded. This will take time and you will not see results in weeks, but in months. But if you give it time to work, it eventually will. The key to not having negative affects is (a) knowing your skin type and (b) following the directions. With your skin type in mind and time, it is a very gradual process to work your way up the discs. I use the orange disk (medium) after 6 months. If you dont use the device properly or try to jump discs too quickly you will irritate and burn your skin.

              Comments about PMD Personal Microderm Hand and Body Kit:

              I have thirty five year old combination skin with break outs during "that time." I have owned this product for a year. My skin has drastically improved so much my sister requests that I bring it with on my visits. Noticeable removes dead skin, acne heals faster, moisturizers and serums work better. Worth every dime. I use once a week to once every two weeks.

              I wanted this machine so bad I finally got it for christmas. I tried it out and all seemed fine until red circles started appearing on my face I tried to use make up to cover it up but you can still see them today I felt a scab texture on my face so I went to gently wash my face and my face started bleeding like crazy mind you I do not have sensitive skin and I used the sensitive disks. I am so unhappy with this product! Anyone else have the same issue???

              • Q:

                Will personal PMD work on freckles? With every set there is a white blue grey and green cap. Per cap can be used for 3 to 4 times. That means 1 month. So 4 caps means 4 months. After that where to buy the caps for advance level? Do I have to buy again the whole set? Or I can simply buy the caps to use it further? Any suggestion how long it can be used on a face with freckles whiteheads fine lines and blemishes? Thanks

                  Microdermabrasion works to decrease the appearance of brown spots, but does not remove the freckles that some people have had all of their lives. You can purchase replacement discs through Ulta as well as from PMD directly.

                  Hi Lulu,

                  Depending on how deep the scarring is the PMD may or may not be able to help. Since you noted it was near your left eye we would not recommend using the PMD as our device has suction and a spinning disc that if used too close to the eye it can cause some irritation.

                  Thank you!

                  Hi Selena! You can use the body discs on your face however, we do recommend you start on your arm and work your way to the face so you can get a feel for the wider range of exfoliation. Also, as far as the coarseness of discs we want you to use the same precaution by starting off with the Sensitive discs and working your way up. Remember each disc can be used for 3-4 uses.

                  A:

                  Microdermabrasion can help to decrease the appearance of stretch marks. They will not go away overnight, but will require consistent weekly use over several months. Much of the success in decreasing their appearance will depend upon your skin type and the severity of the stretch marks.

                  A:

                  Hi Cynthia - Great question!

                  No, the Personal Microderm devices have three purposes: 1) exfoliation 2)vacuum suction and 3) absorption.

                  The process of exfoliation removes the top layer of dead skin. This is a process that our skin does automatically, it just takes a lot longer as we get older. The immediate results is that your skin is smoother and will begin to look healthier and brighter.

                  The vacuum suction helps to increase blood flow by bringing it to the surface of the skin. This helps to stimulate collagen production, helping the dermis sustain the outer skin layer and speed up the skin cell renewal process. Finally, by removing the top layer of skin and increasing blood flow, studies have also shown that any products that you put on your skin will absorb more deeply into your skin making them more effective.

                  Microdermabrasion can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, some scars, and hyper pigmentation. The entire process simply makes your skin look and feel healthier by improving tone and texture.

                  Hi Debora,

                  We would suggest that you double check with your dermatologist on this. The discs that perform the microdermabrasion are coated with aluminum oxide crystals. We do not feel that they would be a problem, but with the type of acne that you have, caution is needed.

                  A:

                  Hi Sandy,

                  Treatment does not vary by age our devices show results when used as recommended (every 6-7 days). Typically, it can take 6-8 weeks to see a reduced appearance of blemishes. You will need to be committed to using PMD weekly and it can take several months to see results.

                  We recommend starting off with the white training disc and watching our training video to help guide you through how to effectively use our products.

                  If you have additional questions please do not hesitate to reach out!
