PMD Personal Microderma Device

Microdermabrasion is something that has always intrigued me and is a treatment that I assumed you should only have done at a clinic/treatment center.  So when I was offered the chance to try a device that could be used at home, I jumped at the chance.

The *PMD Personal Microderma (£150) is said to replicate the treatment given by professionals to help unclog pores, smooth and even tone, reduce blemishes and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  Inside the box you will find everything you need - 7 exfoliating discs, 1 electrical cord, 2 caps and a really helpful and easy to read/understand leaflet and instructional DVD. So, before I even considered using the device, I watched the DVD a number of times just to ensure I understood what I need to do to get this right and to ensure I was using it properly.

The discs that accompany the set include an initial white training disc, two green discs and four blue discs all of which have different levels of abrasiveness. 

To use the devise, your skin needs to be product free and completely dry and then holding the skin so it is taught slightly, gently glide the device over the skin making sure to only pass over the same area once. The first time I tried this, I used my arm to practice on and whilst I was expecting the sound to be that of a dentists drill, I was surprised to find it less noisy than my hairdryer, though the noise is quite similar.  Once I had done my test patch, there was some slight reddening which quickly disappeared, so I was quite keen to try it on my face.  I don't have sensitive skin, but I do have an oily t-zone with dryness on both cheeks, so I started with the blue disc which is designed for sensitive skin and it took me quite a while to get the hang of it.  


As the disc spins, it not only exfoliates but has suction to it, so it sucks up the skin and any other grime that comes off your skin right out the way.  For me this took a few attempts to get used to, especially on my face because even though there is no pain, it does feel slightly odd to start with.  After finishing, the one thing I did notice was a very small amount of redness after using the device but not nearly as much as I thought I would and I haven't experienced any other effects such as breakouts which I had expected.

Having used the device for the past few months, there is a notable difference in the softness of my skin and there is less dryness, plus the number of blackheads that had gathered on my chin have now almost gone, so for that I am hugely impressed.  What I do like about this device is how easy it is to use once you become comfortable with it, it is lightweight so it doesn't leave you with a dead arm and it is also really easy to clean which is another added bonus.


Have you tried an at-home or salon microdermabrasion treatment? Have you tried this PMD Personal Microderm device?

  1. Great review. I'm not sure if I'd be able to do this on myself though. Would have to get my sister to do it.

  2. Wow this sounds amazing, I am desperate to try a product like this, I have blackheads around my chin and on my nose that I won't budge and I think I need something more specialised to sort them out. Great review and even though I don't have a spare £150, it's something I would definitely save up for. Especially as you've noticed a difference and your skin sounds exactly like mine.

  10. This reminds me, I also have a microdermabrasion system called Nubrilliance.. it's a bit bulkier though. Got it from an infomercial a few years ago and used it twice :/

  18. I am glad it was effective for you and you found it easy to use. I like how there's a dvd for the instructions with it.

  19. I am impressed that they have made this such a user-friendly product, it must be quite a challenge when it is such a new product for consumer use. The DVD is a nice touch, as I am sure seeing it in use would be a helpful addition to written instructions.
