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.

  • Personal Microderm Tool & Electric Power Cord
  • Exfoliating Discs 1 Ct White (Training/ Ultrasensitive)
  • Blue 2 Ct. (Sensitive Exfoliation)

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

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

By Britt

from Minneapolis Minnesota

Pros

    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???

          Wonderful product but as any product you have to gradually increase to the next step otherwise you will not be happy. PMD also has a great line of skincare that feels yummy after a treatment

          Comments about PMD Personal Microderm Hand and Body Kit:

          I have been using the PMD for 2 weeks now. I have seen my skin approve greatly. If you use the product correctly and as instructed you should not have any issues. I first researched the product before I purchased it. I actually got it on sale. It is really pricey in my book, but it was worth it. I have acne pitted scars and it has helped so much. It's smoothing away the scars and blemishes. My foundation even goes on smoothly. This is a cheaper alternative, instead of going to the spa and getting microdermabrasion done. I love it. Don't let the bad reviews fool you!! I was skeptical at first and even scared to try it. I cannot wait to see what else this product does for my skin. I even see a glow!!!

              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!

              absolutely! Personal Microderm treatments help to remove the top dead layer of skin cells allowing skincare to absorb and penetrate better which in return helps skincare benefits to increase.

              A:

              the Personal Microderm comes with one filter in the device. Be sure to wash the filter after each use and let air dry. The filter should be replace every 60-90 days. It is very important to have a filter in the device, it keeps the dead skin from entering the vacuum. There is a replacement filter in every set of discs and can also be purchased directly from the company at their website.

              A:

              Microdermabrasion will remove the dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin. This makes microdermabrasion a good treatment option to soften the appearance for some scars and fine lines. Do not do any form of manual exfoliation including Personal Microderm on any active acne because it may spread the bacteria. Please consult a Doctor as we cannot give out medical advice. Most customers see an improvement in the appearance of scars after 6 to 12 treatments. However not all customers experience the same results.

              A:

              Stretch marks are actually due to elastic fiber and collagen loss in the second, deeper layer of the skin. Some users may see an improvement of the appearance of scars, fine lines and wrinkles as well as stretch marks. Personal Microdermabrasion removes the dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin and helps to boost newer, brighter skin.

              A:

              Everyones skin reacts differently. We recommend using the Personal Microderm with the white training disc for the first time and then move up to the grey or the blue disc. You may experience some redness but it should only last a few minutes. Once you see how your skin reacts to the treatments you can then decide if you can do them in the AM. You should apply serum, toner and moisturizer after the treatment and makeup is fine as well.

              Personal Microderm helps skin to renew itself more quickly and can help lighten dark spots with continued use. One of the key benefits to using the Personal Microderm is the increased absorption of skincare which can help lighten dark spots more quickly.
