Last month I introduced you to the PMD Personal Microderm Device for at home use. I’ve been using it once a week for 4 weeks now and have some thoughts to share with you and show you the results. You might want to warn small children–these photos are of my old, bare face and have not been retouched.

In case you forgot, The Personal Microderm is an at-home tool that brings you the same results as professional microdermabrasion treatments! The patented spinning disc technology embedded with aluminum oxide crystals gently removes the top layer of dull, dead skin. These dead skin cells act as a barrier on the skin, and once they are removed, skincare products can penetrate 20X deeper maximizing the benefits of skin care. Read my intro post here. 

The PMD comes with a white training disc, grey for very sensitive skin, blue for sensitive skin and green for normal skin. When starting out with the PMD, I used the white disc to practice with. I highly recommend practicing as it took me a few times to get used to the device. For example, you must keep the disc flat to your face and at first, I was tipping the wand, mostly on my forehead but I had to make a conscious effort to keep the disc flat to my face. The makers of PMD recommend that you pull the skin tight to help the device smoothly glide over skin and I found this to be essential or you will suck up your skin. Of course, I am a klutz so you may not have these problems.

I used the white practice disk first, then for the next two weeks the gray for very sensitive skin, the third week I used the blue for sensitive skin and the last week I moved to the green for normal skin. Looking back, I wish I had moved to the blue disk earlier. Consult your doctor or dermatologist if you are unsure that the Personal Microderm is suitable for your skin. AND remember, if you are using retinoids, discontinue use for at least 7 days before using the PMD. I also recommend the PMD Recovery Collagen Sheet Masks after a treatment.  These masks are formulated to intensely hydrate and soothe the skin and feel very refreshing! There is a special deal for 5 free masks with the purchase of the teal PMD.

Now for the results! This is only after 4 weeks and PMD states that maximum results will be seen after 8-12 weeks of use. I did the notice that the areas I paid more attention to have improved while the others are the pretty much the same. I always have dry patches between my eyes and on the sides of my nose and those are gone. I also have large pores on my nose so I really concentrated on that as well and I do think it looks better. While I didn’t expect to turn back time in only 4 weeks, I have seen a noticeable improvement which makes me want to keep using the PMD!


The space between my eyes has really improved! The fine lines and rough texture are lessened and the large pores on my nose look better.

Honestly, when you look at your skin every day it’s hard to see subtle differences but I think these pictures speak for themselves. I’m very pleased with my results and will continue to use the PMD Personal Microderm Device. Long-term results diminish appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, blemishes & dark spots so I hope to see MORE improvement. I highly recommend it especially for those over 40! Check out more before and after pics here.

  2. Krystal Butherus says

    Seems like a great addition to skin care. I like how you’ve documented the areas of your face for monitoring improvements over time.

  3. Roger Willis says

    It looks like you’re getting the results you’re wanting. My wife had mentioned getting one of these, but was unsure if it would hurt.

  4. Cecilia C. Cannon says

    this looks great, definitely something to put on my holiday list for the hubby to remember

  5. I can see a few of the improvements you point out. That is very cool.

  6. Good to know that you’ve seen some improvements already

  7. That is so cool! I have been looking for something that works for what feels like forever. I have tried a few things that have produced results but whatever can add on to that I will not say no to.

  8. I have only tried microdebrasion once but I love the sound of a kit you can use at home. It is great that it has reduced your fine lines and brown spots. Good value for money x

  9. Allison @neversaydiebeauty says

    Your skin afterwards looks so smooth and fresh! Impressive results!

  10. I am so impressed. The difference is wonderful. I’m sure the longer you use it the better results you’ll see. Keep it up!!

  11. oh how interesting. I love seeing updates. I would be so curious how this would work on my dry dry skin. I’ve been to nervous to try.

  12. love this review

  16. Journa Ramirez says

    I love this honest review. The results are awesome, I want to get one for myself!

  17. Wow, it really has done some nice improvements. I could really go for a few smaller and smoother pores.

  18. I bought this for acne scarring, but my derm says I can use it after all the in-clinic procedures are done. Good to hear it makes a difference!

  19. I had not seen this product before! This looks great and your before and after pictures really show progress!

    I love seeing before and after pictures. It looks like you had some really gold results. Thanks for sharing!

  22. KoKoa Magazine says

    I’ve always wanted to try a microderm treatment but I am scared. This looks like a good approach as I can focus on specific areas on my own. And I love that it’s pink. Ha. You look great too. I can see the results.

  23. jessica reed says

    It seems to work pretty good! I might look into this since I have some darker spots that could use some treatment.

  24. Wow!! The results are amazing – I may need to add this to my Christmas Wish List.

  25. Jeanine @ says

    Wow this looks pretty awesome, the results are pretty obvious too it works really well!

  26. This is a great deal. I have had this done in the spa before and let me tell you how it can easily break my bank. I am glad to hear that you can easily buy it and do it yourself. Love the transformation. Thanks for sharing.

  27. This would make an excellent gift! I’ve honestly always wanted something like this and it’s nice to have a great review from a friend!

  28. I have been wanting one of these forever, I might need to put it on my Christmas list.
