Can you believe it’s already been a month since I’ve started using the PMD Personal Microderm Device again? I can’t believe how fast the time is flying by but I’m extremely excited to share my results with all of you. After using this device for a month (4 weeks), I am definitely looking forward to sharing with all of you how it’s worked for me.
Read all about my initial thoughts and first impressions of the PMD here.
The PMD Personal Microderm is an at-home device that allows you to bring the same type of results as that from a professional treatment, at the tip of your fingertips and comfort of your own home. PMD’s patented spinning discs are embedded with aluminum oxide crystals that exfoliate the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. The device basically gives you the benefits of a professional treatment, while helping to prep your skin to take in all the skin care that we love to treat ourselves with. After the process of treating your skin with the PMD, your skin is left feeling… well, great! Firmer, fresher and radiant!
I started off using the PMD with the gray disk (read all about the discs here) for the first few tries but then moved my way up to the blue disk (for sensitive skin) as my use progressed. Since I have naturally sensitive skin, I continued to use the blue discs and probably will stick with that when using this device. Using the PMD is easy and while it may take a little practice (especially in how you hold it and run it against your skin), once you get the hang of it, it will be an easy step in your beauty regimen. After using the PMD I applied the PMD Recovery Collagen Sheet Masks as apart of my treatment. These masks help to replenish and hydrate my skin while soothing it. It’s perfect as part of the process because my dry sensitive skin needs the extra moisture.
Now, let’s talk about results after a month of using the PMD. PMD encourages that you’ll see maximum results after 8-12 weeks of use and I’ve only been using it for 4 weeks, so please keep that in mind when reading. As you can see from my before photo, I had uneven skin tone throughout my face and discoloration in various areas.
*Before beginning my use of PMD
In the photo below, I share with you my after results. Of course, as I always say – Rome wasn’t built in a day, but you can see where my skin is starting to really brighten and look much fresher than before. I also noticed that some of my fine lines are diminishing and not as prominent as they were prior to using the PMD Personal Microderm. My pores on my cheeks are also softer and not as defined and my sun spots (while still visible) are not as noticeable. Since I do not really use foundation, it’s important for my skin to look good.
*after using PMD for 4 weeks
Because of my sensitive skin, I used the PMD at its bare minimum required so that I would not have an eczema flare-up. But immediately after using the device for just a week, I noticed that my skin had already started to get brighter and felt much smoother. The discolored areas on my face had begun to lighten dramatically and my skin looks much more vibrant than the dull it had looked before. My nose had looked darker in comparison to other parts of my skin before using PMD because I got a lot of sun this summer, but the PMD helped in to even the skin tone in most of the places I had used it. I would have liked to really lighten my acne scars on and near my cheekbones but while it did not get rid of it completely, it did lighten how drastic they appeared on my face.
I’m excited to use the PMD on a long-term basis and compare my photographs to see the difference. I look forward to using the PMD Personal Microderm Device and can’t wait to see how it improves my skin overall. After using it just a month, I did notice a measurable difference in how my skin looks and feels. Since I’m creeping up on my 40s, I am excited to see how it will continue to help me.

When it comes to skincare products and gadgets, I’m always super duper excited to try them and share my thoughts with you. If you’ve been a long time follower of my original YouTube channel, you may have watched videos where I have raved about my first PMD device (about 8 to 10 years ago). Since it’s been a few years since I’ve used the PMD Personal Microderm, I was extremely excited to get the opportunity to share my thoughts with all of you once again. Microdermabrasion in the comforts of your own home? I say… YES! I was given the chance to try out the PMD and I can’t wait to share my results with all of you.
So, this will be a two-part sponsored post. For today, I’ll be sharing my first impressions (well sort of, since I’ve used this before) and the details on the product itself. I’ll also be sharing my before photo. In the second post, you’ll get my experience after using the product for a month.
I’ve used this particular device twice already (prior to writing this for you) so I’m excited to share my results with you in about 30 days or so.
Let’s talk about what Microdermabrasion. What is Microdermabrasion? Basically, Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells. Once the process is done, you reveal younger, healthier-looking skin. The PMD Personal Microderm is an at-home skincare tool that provides the same brilliant results as a professional, in-office treatment, but without the price tag. The PMD combines a Patented Spinning Disc technology with Perfectly Calibrated Vacuum Suction to leave the skin looking fresh and radiant. The claim is that you can see results after your 1st session and maximum results will be seen after 8-12 weekly sessions.
PMD’s patented spinning discs are embedded with aluminum oxide crystals that exfoliate the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. The calibrated vacuum suction works by increasing circulation and triggering the skin’s natural healing process, which helps to boost collagen and elastin. After the entire process of treating your skin with PMD, your skin is left feeling firmer, looking fresh and radiant and basically glowing.

The Classic PMD utilizes one speed and comes with classic caps for the face and body. The treatment takes just 3 minutes to do and one treatment each week is all that is needed. I definitely recommend watching the video tutorial on how to use the device prior to using it for the first time.
Cleanse and dry your skin thoroughly
Start with the training disc (white disc). Practice on your leg or arm before using it on your face
Pull the skin tight to help the device to glide smoothly over the skin
Do not apply any pressure and do not stop or remain in one area. Move the device quickly across the skin in an upward motion.
Make sure you only do one pass per area
Following treatment, apply toner and moisturizer
Wash the cap and filter after each use.
There are different levels of discs and colors for each level so you know the intensity you are applying to your skin.
White Disc – Ultra Sensitive (training disc)
Grey Disc – Very Sensitive
Blue Disc – Sensitive
Green Disc – Moderate
Each disc will last 3-4 uses and most treatments last about three to five minutes. Everyone’s skin is different and some sensitive skin types may never need to increase their exfoliation level by moving to a different disc color. Some may have more coarse skin and may need to move to a higher disc level. Ultimately, the disc color used depends on your treatment goals and skin sensitivity overall. There are other discs available on the PMD website that can be used for Body, etc. You can check those out here.
It’s been a few years since I’ve used a PMD on my face. I stopped using it because my original device went missing. But, I’ve already started using this cute pink one now and have had two treatments. I’ve included my “before” photo below. This photo was taken prior to any treatments using this PMD unit.
As you can see from the photo above, I have uneven skin tone, discoloration in certain areas and a bit of scarring from old acne breakouts. I’m 37 years old and while I don’t have many wrinkles, my PCOS has contributed to taken a toll on my skin the last year. I’m excited to share with all of you my after photos in mid-November.
Definitely, check out PMD’s FAQs and get a look at some of the before and after photos on their website. I have been a huge fan of PMD over the years and it’s great to see that this company has continued to help many people with their skin issues. I’m excited to share my results with all of you!
Can’t wait to see my results? Want to try PMD for yourself and join in on this journey with me?
