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 Hand and Body Kit includes:

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

Comments about PMD Online Only Personal Microderm:

I like my PMD - emphasis on "like". It definitely works. I can see results after a couple uses. As someone with perpetual acne scars, I've found that this is a very quick way to exfoliate the first couple layers of my skin so that it can begin to repair itself. However, the discs wear out so quickly. I would say after the first 2 uses, the discs were noticeably worn out, which is a bummer because replacing them costs $$.

The device itself is pretty expensive, but it is easy to use. I just find it a hassle to get it out, put it together, use it, clean it, and put it back again (still haven't found a good way to store it yet).

I would recommend this for anyone with mild to severe scarring, and has already tried other options. I don't think that it would be too effective for deep, ice-pick scars - but if you have surface level scarring and discoloration that won't seem to go away with other remedies, I'd say try this. But be ready to commit: to the price, as well as the purchasing the replacement discs, and to doing this procedure consistently.

Again, the thing that gets me with this product are those darn replacement discs and how they are so easily worn. If they lasted longer or weren't so costly to replace, I think I'd give this at least 4.5 stars (if half stars were possible...)

Evens at skin, results are not drastic but noticeable to me. I've only used once a week for a month, & up to normal discs. So far so good, it's a little pricey but better than visits to dr!

Comments about PMD Online Only Personal Microderm:

If this product weren't so expensive I'd give it 5 stars but it works great and I was shocked at how well it helped clear my "adult" skin. I didn't have the usual "teenage" skin problems until I reached my late 40's, then bam, I felt like I should have been in High school! Although it took a couple weeks of use to see results, once my skin cleared up I couldn't believe how healthy it looked and no more problems, even after sleeping with makeup left on (shameful I know!). Highly recommend this product for adult skin as I don't know how well it would work for younger skin types. A great feature is the different textured disks that allow you to change abrasion according to the condition and tolerance of your skin at time of use.

      This machine definitely beats any topical creams or in the tube micro dermabrasion ointment .I appreciate that there are multiple levels from which to choose so you can start out gentle and gradually become more aggressive as tolerated

          A:

          The PMD is an excellent tool for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, hyperpigmentation, blemishes, pores size, and uneven skin tone and texture.

          If you have rosacea, the PMD is not recommended. Consult your doctor or dermatologist if you are unsure that the PMD is suitable for your skin.

          Do not use the PMD on active acne blemishes - wait until they have healed. Yes, the PMD can be used to help lessen the appearance of post-acne discoloration.

          A:

          Yes, it is safe for all skin tones. The PMD is recommended for any individual looking for smoother, softer and brighter skin.

      • Q:

        Is this device equivalent to getting a microdermabrasion at a salon /spa. How often can you use it ?
        Asked on 6/29/2016 by Amy from Boston ma

        1 answer

        • Staff Expert

          A:

          Yes, the PMD is an at-home tool that brings you the same results as professional microdermabrasion treatments. The PMD's exfoliation and vacuum suction uncover younger skin through:
          —Patented spinning disc technology embedded with aluminum oxide crystals gently removes the top layer of dull, dead skin, referred to as the Stratum Corneum. These dead skin cells act as a barrier on the skin, and once they are removed, skincare products will be fully absorbed into the skin, resulting in maximum benefits.
          –The tool's vacuum suction helps stimulate, activate, and rejuvenate the skin. This suction also triggers the body's production of collagen and elastin and it increases the skin's cell renewal. An increased cell renewal is important because it generates new, healthy skin cells that are brighter, softer, and smoother.

          The PMD should only be used once every 7 days. Because the top layer of skin has been removed, you need a full week of rejuvenation before the tool is used again.

      • Q:

        What is the max suction power range and how long do the discs last (how many uses before you have to replace)
        Asked on 6/7/2016 by Teresa from San Jose, CA

        1 answer

        • Staff Expert

          A:

          For a typical procedure lasting approximately three to five minutes, each disc should last three to four treatments. The size of the area being treated and the length of each treatment will ultimately determine how long a disc can be used.

          The suction level is not adjustable. If your PMD does not have suction, twist the cap tight against the black O-ring to make sure it is completely sealed. No suction will occur if the cap is not screwed tightly against the O-ring. Also, make sure that the disc is sitting slightly below the cap; if the disc is too high, this will prevent the suction from occurring.

        1 answer

        • Staff Expert

          A:

          The PMD must be used consistently for 8-12 weeks while slowly increasing the intensity of treatments for the reduction in appearance of acne scarring. There are immediate effects, but it is a long term commitment to transform the skin.
