My skin suffered a lot during the fall/winter season. I developed some rough patches around my forehead which made my fine lines more noticeable. I also had a couple of stress-related acne breakouts that left a few dark spots. The face scrubs didn’t seem to improve it much even with the help of a serum. So, I started researching spas in my area to get a microdermabrasion treatment.
What is Microdermabrasion?
In essence, microdermabrasion involves exfoliation of your skin with the help of a machine. Exfoliation removes the dead cells as well as debris from the uppermost layer of skin on your face, hands and chest. Additionally, microdermabrasion enables skin care products to enter into your skin’s deeper layers and also helps to build collagen.
It can also:
- reduce scars
- reduce wrinkles and fine lines
- shrink enlarged pores
- evens skin tone and textures
- reduces acne blemishes
This treatment is generally done in day spas, medical spas and specialized skin care clinics; however, there are a number of options on the market for at home treatment tools.
Cost wise, it made since for me to look for an at home solution because one treatment at a spa on average can cost from $75 to $200. So a friend of mine told me about a device called PMD Personal Microderm, an at home tool that can produce the same result as a professional, in office treatment.
It has gotten so many rave reviews so I decided to pick one up for myself from the PMD website to treat a few post acne dark spots, rough patches, and the fine lines on my forehead. Aside from the face, you can also use it for areas on the body.
Having said this, the PMD Personal Microderm device has helped my skin a lot. Not only is it simple to use, but also fast as well as safe. I use it once a week (as recommended) and apply my daily serum afterwards since it penetrates 20x deeper into the skin. I love this product so much! I think everyone should have one.
The reason why this tool delivers such amazing results is the exfoliation and suction power from its patented spinning disc technology and calibrated vacuum suction. This spinning disc effortlessly removes dead skin cells and stimulates new cell growth while the suction triggers the skin’s essential healing process, which builds collagen and elastin and leaves the skin firm and radiant. The spinning discs come in two sizes, small for the face and large for the body, and each size has different levels of skin sensitivity (from ultra sensitive to maximum strength abrasion). The disc options are color coded.
Why would you want a PMD Personal Microderm?
- It eliminates the need to go to a spa and waste a great deal of time and gas.
- The results provided by PMD is the same as that provided by professional, in-office treatments.
- Finally, using this at-home microdermabrasion device is more cost effective compared to treatments provided by spas.
Aging is a natural process. You cannot stop it, but you can decide to age gracefully by taking good care of your skin. My skin is definitely brighter and feels smoother after a single treatment of the PMD Personal Microderm. So far I’ve done 3 treatments but I know once I complete all 8, my skin will look dramatically different and have a brighter, smoother, and more youthful appearance. I’ve already noticed a difference with the treatments I’ve done. I’m so glad I made the investment.
