Personal Microdermabrasion Review


Personal Microdermabrasion Kit at home- This is the best thing EVER! This is the most effective way of removing dead skin cells. It is better than having to pay a dermatologist the same amount for EVERY single visit!

The PMD buffs the dead skin away leaving nothing but beautiful, smooth skin. It comes with different heads. The blue is for sensitive skin and the green is for those tougher spots. The smaller heads are for your face and the bigger heads are for using on your body.

You are supposed to use this on clean skin, so it’s best to use this right out of the shower or bath. Wait until you dry off, and then get to work!

and then put the microdermabrasion up to your face. It feels kind of funny at first. Like a tiny vacuum suctioning your face. Then you glide it across your face in an upward motion.

Make sure that you follow the natural lines of your face. Start with your forehead- working your way to the cheeks, and down to the chin. You use upward, outward motions.

This is a really cool at home treatment, and you see results almost immediately. Within the first couple of uses, my skin was showing a much greater softness, clearer pores, and looked healthier.

This greatly reduces fine lines, acne scars, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation. I have been using this once a week, it IS an intense treatment- and only needs to be used once a week.

I really really loved this because of my Keratosis Pilaris (chicken skin) and the only thing that will help with this is Vitamin A Retinol Creams and microdermabrasion. Being a mother of 2 small kids, I can’t afford to pay $100 a visit just for something that makes me feel uncomfortable in shorts.

When I got this- I was AMAZED at how well this worked on the red bumpy blotched on my thighs. It took about 2 uses to see the results, but with every treatment- it was getting much better.

I am absolutely thrilled that I can now wear skirts, shorts, and bathing suits without having to be embarrassed about those tiny little annoying bumps. This has completely ridded my skin of all the marks and bumps!

About Microdermabrasion:

he Treatment

Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive form of exfoliation and mild skin resurfacing that removes the dead skin cells from the Stratum Corneum, the outer most layer of the skin. The Stratum Corneum is the layer of the skin affected by fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, acne, and scaring. The concentrated microdermabrasion treatment exfoliates this skin layer to break apart these common imperfections. This then triggers the body’s healing mechanisms, causing the removed dead skin cells to be rapidly replaced with healthy, new ones.

The Benefits

Microdermabrasion provides several important benefits for the skin. The treatment smoothes away dull and rough skin texture, and it softens fine lines, wrinkles, burn scars, and acne scars. The treatment also improves the skin’s tone by fading uneven pigmentation, sun damage, age spots, and skin blemishes. In addition, microdermabrasion, which combines the power of a vacuum suction with exfoliation, reduces the formation of acne. The vacuum achieves this by clearing out clogged pores and releasing trapped dirt and oil. This leaves skin more clear, vibrant, and beautiful.

The benefits of microdermabrasion cause skin to become rejuvenated, while promoting new collagen growth and cell renewal. Also, since the dead skin cells on the Stratum Corneum act as a barrier for the skin, once they are removed through microdermabrasion, skin care products will be more fully absorbed into the skin, maximizing their effectiveness. All these microdermabrasion benefits combine to uncover youthful and radiant skin.


  • Apply a treatment toner. This will neutralize the pH balance of the skin and prepare it for therecovery moisturizer.
  • Wait 5 minutes.
  • Apply a recovery moisturizer or cell renewal serum.
  • Apply sunscreen daily since the skin will be extra sensitive to sun exposure.
  • Cosmetics may be applied after the treatment.
  • Here are some before and after pictures!
