A couple of weeks ago I received a PMD Personal Microderm in the mail. Being a lotion and potion and treatment junkie, I was excited to test it out. I do not often have time to go to an actual spa for a treatment, and I feel guilty doing so on weekends when I prefer to play with my daughter. I know, mommy-guilt stinks! So I treat myself to at-home facials quite often. It is a treat every evening once my child is tucked in bed to spend some time on my beauty routine.
Achieve amazing anti-aging results at home with Personal Microderm System. It 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. It smooths away dead skin cells, diminishing age spots and other signs of aging. Help treats acne and scarring as well.
The PMD can do so many wonders for different types of skin and is can be so beneficial to all ages, just make sure to watch the video on how to use it first, and read the directions. The PMD is very similar to what doctors and salons are using for microdermabrasion treatments and if the directions are not followed, it can hurt the skin.
Your first treatment should be with the white training disc. This should help you practice before using a real disc. After practicing with the white disc, move on to the blue disc, which is the most gentle. Using the small disc for face and delicate areas and the large disc on your body.
|White Training Disc||Blue Disc||Green Disc||Red Disc|
Using the Device
Preliminary Step: On your first treatment use the training disc on your neck, below the ear, to test how your skin will react to treatments from the personal microderm. This step does not need to be repeated beyond the first treatment.
Step 2: Use your free hand to pull the skin tight in the treatment area.
Step 3: Move the PMD Personal Microderm in an upward motion across the skin. NOTE: Do not make more than two passes over one area during the treatment.
Step 4: Following the treatment, use a toner to neutralize the ph balance in your skin and a recovery moisturizer. For best results, use the PMD Neuro Neutralizing Toner and PMD Professional Recovery Moisturizer.
Step 5: Let your skin recover. Wait 6-7 days between treatments.
Overall, I found the device easy to use. The online and CD instructions were easy to follow, and I’m glad I read them before jumping in head first! It is key to hold your skin tight in the treatment direction. I did not find any irritation from the treatment, and I have fairly sensitive skin. I do think it is key to wait a week between treatments to for best results. I have used the tool three times now and feel a difference in my skin texture.
