I purchased the Personal Microdermabrasion (PMD) at home device, back in March.
I had heard of the PMD device via beauty blogs and beauty youtube videos. I was intrigued by this DIY, at home microdermabrasion, and looked into it further. I read reviews on blogs and watched 'how-to tutorials' on youtube, to get an understanding of how it works, and how other people like myself found the device. I had a look at the PMD website, that was very user friendly and found out that they shipped to Australia. I purchased the worldwide powerpoint plug - in PMD, so I was able to use it here in Australia and I also used a discount code I found on a beauty youtube video, which helped a lot with the cost.
The shipping took less than 2 weeks from memory and was packaged very well. Some parts of my face are uneven in skin tone, I have a combination/oily skin type and I am susceptible to blemishes every now and then. I like to invest my money into products for my skin, not only resulting in using less makeup but feeling more confident in my own skin and in years to come my skin will hopefully still look youthful. I purchased the PMD to improve the look, feel and texture of my skin. I wanted my skin to look more even, be more smooth to the touch, have my pores look smaller and have less blackheads on my nose.
The first time I used the PMD I felt confident because I had researched into the device so much on youtube. I knew that the device made quite a loud sound and that you had to move the device quite quickly upwards along the face, pulling the skin taught. I feel as though, if I didn't watch the videos on youtube, and relied only on the videos on the PMD website, I wouldn't have been as informed and I would of grazed my skin because I had held the device in one place for too long.
I use the PMD device on completely dry skin and use the sensitive skin disc. I wash my face with a cleanser at night, and then let it air dry completely. I then use the PMD device on my skin and then once finished use my toner and night cream. I use it at night, in case of redness.
After using it about three times, (I use the PMD device once a week, or every second when I see my skin doesn't need it as much) I had gotten used to it, and it was much easier to use and manoeuvre around the contours of my face.
After using the PMD device for a coupled of months, I am very pleased with the results. My skin is much smoother, pores are much smaller and I get less blemishes. My skin products go on much smoother and so does any makeup I use on my skin. I also use the PMD device on my back, as I have light blemish scarring on the top of my back and a little bit down my spine. I had to explain and show someone else how to use it, which wasn't hard, so that they could use the PMD device on my back. I haven't used the PMD device on my back as much as I have used it on my face, but I can tell it is making a difference.
Have you tried using the PMD? How did you like it?
