I have my share of small blemishes that exfoliation, gentle salicylic treatments, and patience haven't managed to erase yet. My interest was therefore piqued when PMD Personal Microderm offered to send me their at home microdermabrasion system for review. Microdermabrasian is mechanical exfoliation of the outermost layer of skin cells, usually by a trained professional. In this review I'll share my thoughts and experience with at home microdermabrasion.
I also think how effective the system will be depends on your skin. I have thinner more delicate skin, so I worry about taking off too much with the PMD. It does leave pink marks behind which do disappear relatively quickly. However, if you are not careful, I've heard those marks can look more like wounds. For those with more robust facial skin, this system will probably be easier to use and work better. At this point, it's still a work in progress for me and my face. However, I am happy to use the PMD on my arm. I have a few old burn scars (from cooking) that I would love to remove. The body buffer is the perfect size to use on them and I feel safe using it on those areas.
PMD Personal Microderm system for three weeks now and I haven't seen clear results yet (I'm reviewing because I was asked to in this time frame). I don't think it's a magic bullet for skin discoloration, however I'm hoping that I will see more results if I stick with it for a longer term.
Thanks for reading my review! Have you ever had experiences with at-home or in-office microdermabrasion? Did they work for you?
