Most Helpful Positive Review Smooth Face = Better Makeup Application
First and foremost, follow the directions. You are not a special snowflake, the rules apply to everyone. Don't risk damaging your face. Follow the healing period recommendations. After a few uses, I really noticed a difference in the texture of my face. When your skin looks better, ultimately your makeup looks better. Be sure that when you plan to use this that you have no plans to go anywhere for the rest of the night. Use it the same day each week, make it part of your routine, like brushing your teeth (except not that often). Get good face care products because your skin will be ready to soak them up. I use a mario bandescu toner and physician's formula argan oil (yes it will be oily, hence the name). Clean and prep, pmd, and use follow up products. You will look crazy with your red oily face afterwards but the next morning you will look fab.
Most Helpful Critical Review If I could give no stars, I would
I have been into skincare since I was a teen (I'm 49 now). I've always been told that I have beautiful skin. I don't know what made me think that this would improve it. I use chemical exfoliants (prescription retinoids, AHA/BHA from Paula's Choice, a new one with AHA/BHA/PHA) and my skin is smooth to the touch and soft. However, sometimes I wake up with flaking skin from those chemical exfoliants, so I thought I'd try this. The first time, I didn't feel the section on my nose, so I went over it a second time. Yikes! Woke up with a big, round, red scrape on my nose. This was two weeks ago. I'm thankful for masks now, as I've been able to cover it in public. I still have redness that needs to fade over time. A week later, I thought, "Okay, do NOT go over any areas twice. FOLLOW DIRECTIONS, dummy! So I followed the directions to a T. Held my skin taut and one quick pass over each area. A little while (1/2 hour?) after I finished, I was surprised to feel areas of my face burning. The next morning, I looked like I had been attacked by a cat on one side of my face from nose to hairline, and I had circular marks along my jawline. This was a week ago. The scratches are mostly gone, but the circles are still there and two of them bleed. Returned this horrible device two days later. I've since read an article on beauty treatments you should never do at home, and dermabrasion is one. Never again will I mess with any tools other than LED light therapy and microcurrent.

Glad I brought it, because I've been do microdermabrasion for over 25 years with a pro, now I can do my own each week. If you never had a microdermabrasion treatment please practice until the tool feels comfortable to your skin… even with years of that face treatment, I had to practice!
Glad I purchased PMD!
Cece from Lompoc
Bought this item on a deal. Wasn't sure if it would effect my sensitive skin but it did not. Item has helped clear up my skin and has overall helped my blotches. Very pleased!
DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!
Ania from Greenville
I bought it in hopes of helping clear some acne but it ended up scarring my face completely. I even put the setting on low and used the sensitive options. I now have huge blotches on my skin that hurt and will probably scar. The opposite of what I wanted.
Good product but use as directed
CC from New Jersey
Here is the short and sweet review… If you use this product exactly as directed then it does a good job. I stick to the lighter discs because I don't want to risk looking like I have rug burn all over my face.
Now for the long boring stuff that I'm nitpicking about and the reason why I only gave it 3 stars… I bought this product over a year ago and I know if you flipped open the cover on the box it had a little instruction section on it but I just felt like that was not thorough enough for what this particular device does. If I'm buying something that has the ability to literally sand away a layer of skin from my face then at the very least I would like to have a thorough instructional booklet telling me exactly what I am supposed to do, where I'm supposed to be doing it and warning me against what I shouldn't be doing. I have a feeling that the reason there is a lot of 1 star reviews saying that this device was horrible, left a lot of bruising from the suction or deep abrasions on the skin is because it was left in one spot for too long or run over the same spot multiple times. When it comes to this device… Less is more. Another gripe that I have is the fact that this device retails for about $200 and they can't even throw in a case or even a zipper pouch to keep everything together. Meanwhile if you spend $100 more you can get everything that comes in this kit but that device is running off a rechargeable battery, it has a third screw top tip to accommodate the smaller nooks and crannies, 2 more disks and a hard case to hold everything. Why do we need to be charged $100 more to get a rechargeable battery and a couple more pieces of plastic? Anyway… I will stop grumbling now.
Overall this product does exactly what it says but again be quick with your swipes, don't hover or go over the same spot repeatedly and make sure to moisturize at the very least afterwards to avoid bruising and abrasions.
Do not purchase this item or you will damage your face
Beck from Jacksonville Fl
Heading to the post office to return the snow because it's a piece of junk that damaged areas of my face with burns that now will have to heal over the next couple weeks
Really makes a difference
Josie from Orange County, CA
I really like how soft and more radiant my skin looks after using this device. It's easy to use and only takes a few minutes to do my whole face. I like how you can customize the disks to meet your skins needs. Very happy with my purchase. Can't wait to try the other products!
Abracadabra from California
Love my PMD! I've been using this for about a year and worked my way up to the blue discs. My skin is so much smoother and I'm able to clean out my pores before they can become pimples. My skin tone is much better and I feel confident going out without makeup again!
I've never had so many compliments on my skin!
Ashley from the desert from Reno, NV
My makeup goes on so smooth and even after I do my weekly treatment. I only wish I could use it more than 1 x a week!
Jjb from Chicago
This does nothing. It's great if you want to apply a suction cup for a few seconds but that's it. It's literally junk.
Not worth the money
Kimmy from Cincinnati, OH
The device attachments are awkwardly shaped and do not allow for a smooth glide over the skin. The suction is also really poor and not really comparable to a professional dermabrasion. It also is not rechargeable and needs to stay plugged in. I would not recommend spending your money on it and opt for spending your money on quality serums.

Its no magic wand, but it does make your skin look and feel soo much better!!! Follow the directions and you cant go wrong!! Im in love with this♡
Great for reducing post acne marks
Caitlin from Los Angeles
This is a pricey item but it can be worth it. I do notice a difference when I consistently use it once a week. I have hormonal acne with frequent cystic break outs that tend to leave behind discoloration or texture. This device will not completely get rid of those BUT I do think it helps exfoliate and encourages skin cell turn over so that the post acne marks appear to fade more quickly. I typically use it at night, and I feel like I can notice a subtle, but worthwhile, improvement when I wake up the next morning. I paid for this product myself.
Not Worth It
Alex from Michigan
I purchased the PMD Pro in January and have used it religiously once a week. Directly after use my skin feels soft, but it doesn't seem to make a difference the day after. I have been using it for 3 months now and would not recommend. If you have a regular skin care routine just stick with that.
Worth the price!!!
Jhen j from Fl
This product was sent to me a gift by PMD about a month ago and I have been using it weekly since. It is easy to use, painless and it actually deep cleanse the skin.
Definitely a must buy
Shreayoshee from Bloomington, Illinois
This is a magic wand, loved how it made my skin feel. I wish I came across this earlier. Would definitely recommend everyone to own one of these for healthy skin. Very handy and easy to use.
Best purchase I've made in years
Bb from USA
I'll be 50 in September and I'm a lifelong skincare junkie. I love effective products and this leaves my skin so smooth and glowing. I always follow with a hydrating sheet mask, vitamin C or astaxanthin serum and oil before bed. My makeup looks flawless these days. I use a lot of skincare, leds, micro current, and this is the single most effective product I've used in years. I love it!!
Perfect home facial
Kailua8O8 from San Diego, CA
I normally get professional Hydroderm facials once a month. Due to the pandemic, salons have been shut down. Since I started using this, I see a big improvement in my skin. I use this once a week and use it on the lowest setting. My skin feels and looks so much smoother, I have a nice glow and my skin has also cleared up (I have acne prone skin). One the days I give myself a home facial with this device, my skin is able to absorb the product better. I love this device and it's literally the cost of one facial at the spa. I have been able to give myself a home facial and save money.
BrendaR from Tennessee
I waited until I had used this a few times. It really does smooth your skin. I have not seen any difference in lines or wrinkles but my face is brighter. Im glad I bought it. Im 62.
Follow the directions and you will be happy too!
Kris from Atlanta, GA
Unlike micro dermabrasion treatments and scrubs i've tried in the past that leave my sensitive skin with flareups and rashes this removes all my dry patches without any reaction. I have combination skin and it's nice that I can use this all over my face with the same glowing results. Make sure to avoid the mistake of others and follow the directions. Start on the lowest setting and least abrasive tip for your first few uses and gradually upgrade. I used each tip once a week for three weeks before upgrading to the next level. Also, like it says don't leave it on the same spot but rather smooth it over your skin and don't go over the same areas more than once. Otherwise it can in fact harm your skin and just like with any suction tool you'll bruise your skin. Otherwise if you follow those directions I think you will be happy!
I can't wait to see what my skin looks like in a few months
Ella from New Orleans
I received this complimentary from PMD beauty and I'm so grateful for it! It's easy to use and even with the training disc I could feel my skin was smoother afterwards. You can see it working like the dull skin getting removed. It's awesome. I think this is definitely going to help tremendously after a few months of consistent use.
Absolutely obsessed with this product
Theweeklyfashionista from Ballwin, MO
PMD beauty gifted me this fabulous product and it's a life changer! My face has never felt more smooth—and I am serious. I've seen an extreme difference in my face appearance including decreased dark spots from acne scarring, and a brighter complexion overall. I started off with the white exfoliated head as said, and honestly I feel like that is enough for my skin. I highly recommend
Michelle from Austin, TX
This microdermabrasion pen allows me to extend the time between super expensive facials, so it's a huge money saver. This tool made my skin clearer and improved its texture. This product was gifted by PMD Beauty.
GAME CHANGER FOR MY SKIN TEXTURE
Shehlovee from La Jolla, CA
I have been eyeing this tool for awhile now and was so lucky to be gifted it from PMD Beauty!
After using it for over a month, I will tell you I would buy this in a heart beat. It has completely changed my skin and especially my skin texture. I saw improvement within two weeks. I'm no longer randomly breaking out and this is the only thing I did differently in my skin routine.
Thanks for the complimentary from PMD Beauty!
Great for at home facials
Cindy from DC
I received this item complimentary from PMD Beauty. My skin is combination dry, and not too sensitive. I have a skincare routine with multiple steps but this tool is more thorough than an infrequent facial scrub. There was an difference after my first use and my skin felt incredibly soft. This tool has a learning curve in order to constantly move the tool all over and not keep it concentrated in one area. I found it easy to clean and was able to switch out the discs easily. I would recommend this to someone interested in leveling up their skincare with professional microdermabrasion treatments or facials.
Great product! Love it!
SimplyU from Yucca Valley
I've been using this every week for the last month and I couldn't be happier with the results. I can tell my skin looks smoother and so much brighter. The stubborn acne scars are fading. I love that it's easy to use. I can do it myself and get similar benefits of professional facials. It's easy to use. I'm excited to continue using it to see more results. This was gifted by PMD beauty.
