Hi there, my darlings! You know, as a blogger, I'm constantly being surprised by the innovations and advancements in the world of beauty, even in the area of cosmetic procedures. Gone are the days when you had to schedule a procedure for your skin at an often expensive spa or doctor's office, take a day or more off and then spend a bunch of days recovering from it. Now, you can do so many of these procedures yourself in the comfort of your own home! I mean, laser hair removal, teeth whitening and even microdermabrasion can be done safely and effectively at home. Today's post deals with one such product that I've been testing for the last 3 weeks and which I'm already really impressed with--PMD's Personal Microderm.
So, what is this device I speak of?
The Personal Microderm is a revolutionary at-home skincare tool that provides the same brilliant results as professional, in-office microdermabrasion treatments. By combining the power of Patented Spinning Disc Technology and Perfectly Calibrated Vacuum Suction, the Personal Microderm works to remove the dead, dull skin cell barrier, increase blood flow, and stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.
There was really very little to the set-up. Each box comes with several removable cylindrical discs--you choose the disc best suited for your skin type, with white for the mildest treatment and black for the most intense. It's recommended that no matter what, you should begin with a test on your neck or inner elbow and ALWAYS start off with the white disc for your first treatment.
There are separate discs for your face and body--the longer, narrower ones are for your face while the shorter, wider ones are suitable for other areas of your body. Here's a closer look :
Once you've chosen the right disc for you, it's a matter of unscrewing the top portion and firmly inserting the disc. I started off with the white as recommended and worked my way up to the blue disc. Take a look :
Then once the disc is inserted and you make sure it doesn't move around, screw the clear outer portion back on.
The device is powered by electricity, NOT batteries, and has a power cord included in the box. It's then operated by a simple ON/OFF toggle, which is great because you don't want to mess with complicated settings and switches when you're treating your face!
So what did I think of it? I'm really impressed--in fact, my first thought after looking in the mirror just after I finished my last treatment was WOW. My main concern with my skin and the reason I wanted to try this device out is the scars left from a careless teenage phase of picking at acne--they are not horrible by any means but I've always been self-conscious of them. Now, since I've only been using the device for about 3 weeks, the BEFORE and AFTER pics aren't dramatic but I can definitely tell that my acne scars are getting lighter and my skin FEELS better.

Although the device does not hurt per se, you will feel the pressure of the suction and some mild tingling afterwards. Do remember to NOT pass the device over the same area more than twice--I did that mistakenly a couple of times and those areas were NOT happy with me. I, personally, experienced a little redness in certain areas the next morning but nothing upsetting. Overall, a simple, easy-to-use device that I plan to use consistently for many months to come. Pesky acne scars, BEGONE!
