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!
