Personal Microderm Review


As we get older, we all start noticing the growing number of wrinkles, dead skin patches, and age spots on our face.  We have also all heard about how effective professional microdermabrasion treatments are.  How would you love to achieve amazing anti-aging results an at home Personal Microderm System?  The PMD  "works just like a professional microdermabrasion treatment without the hassle or cost. The hand-held device uses the same aluminum oxide crystals as the ten thousand dollar machines found at your doctor's office."

The system includes 1 personal microderm, 5 exfoliating discs (2 green and 3 blue), 1 electric cord (Standard U.S. Outlet), 1 facial cap, 1 body cap, 1 reusable filter, Instructional CD and Pamphlet.  After watching the instructional DVD, I decided that I wouldn't be a good candidate for this review.  I wanted you all to get a true review so I worked with my good friend to complete the review.  Below you will find her Before/After pics and her thoughts on the system.  You will see that is very important to review all the directions.  It may take a few attempts to get the hang of it, but the outcome will be soft smoother skin.
PMD has a new line of skincare products that will help boost your PMD treatment. The "PMD Daily Regeneration System - Starter Kit is a complete skin care regimen designed to enhance the effects of the PMD Personal Microderm Device". It includes their Advanced Soothing Cleanser, Calming Neuro Neutralizing Toner, and Professional Recovery Moisturizer. 

Although when I received these products I was used to the microdermabrasion tool, this is the first time I’ve used the skin care products.  I noticed right away that the cleanser is a type I don’t like—the “no water” kind-just massage it into your face and rinse off.   As soon as I start massaging though, I could tell it’s different that others I have tried—the product does lather up some without water.   It makes it feel like its cleaning better that way.  I then used the PMD tool, then the toner, then moisturizer.  All the products feel nice on my skin, no burning, which is good.

Almost two weeks after using the PMD products, I have to say I do like them.  Every product—the cleanser, toner and moisturizer—are like silk on my skin.  They are all very mild, and at no time did I have any adverse reactions-no burning, itching, etc.  I do wish, however, that they did not have fragrance in them.  Even though the moisturizer says fragrance-free, I still smell something.  I also wish there was a separate day and night moisturizer-I would have liked to have had an SPF in the day lotion, and a more intense, reparative night cream.  I think on the whole, though, all the products pair well with the microdermabrasion tool, which I’ve done twice now.  My skin definitely feels smoother and fresher after that.  I can’t tell a substantial difference in the appearance of my skin after just two weeks, but it definitely feels smoother.  Maybe a slight decrease in wrinkles, but again, it is not dramatic.  On the whole I like the products; maybe with more use over time I will see a dramatic improvement.  I will definitely continue using them.

There are only a few fragrances I can tolerate on my face, so I certainly can relate to that thought. But otherwise, it's good to know they worked and that you liked them.
