PMD Personal Microderm
Getting Started on my 2018 Goals
I mentioned in my 2018 goals that taking care of my skin is high on my list. I always had issues with my skin and never did much about it. With all the toxins my body went through from cancer treatments, and because of just getting older, my skin definitely needs more attention. In late 2017, I started to pay closer attention to my skin and really gave it the love it needs. During Fall 2017, I started using PMD Personal Microderm.
What is PMD Personal Microderm?
Personal Microderm is a handheld device that is used to exfoliate away the dead skin and dull cells on the surface of the skin. By removing the dead skin, it allows new skin to generate and reveal a more soft and rejuvenated skin.
If you have been watching my InstaStory, you may have noticed that I have small blotches on my skin. A lot are just spots from acne scars throughout the years. The only way I can successfully minimize these acne scars is to go into a salon and get the facial treatment. I really enjoy getting facials, but to fully see the benefits you have to consistently go until all spots are removed. I probably only go about once every two years. The only time I go is when my mom asks me to go with her.
We all know the key to anything being successful is to do it consistently. Well, unfortunately I can’t go consistently due to time and money. Going in for a facial can take one to two hours. From working full time, running a blog, going in to the hospital for treatments, and having doctor appointments in between, I just don’t always have the luxury of time. Plus, it can be costly. One facial treatment can go up to $300. I just can’t see myself spending that much every 6-8 weeks. I’m on a budget!
How Can PMD Personal Microderm Help?
PMD Personal Microderm works your skin the same as going to the spa. However, the process doesn’t take an hour or two. Using the PMD Personal Microderm takes about 3 minutes for the entire face. I will admit the first time I did it, I was a little bit slower just so I am careful, but after that, it was easy! I was able to fit it in my nighttime skincare routine easily! And you only need to use this device once a week. Such a timesaver compared to the salon!
The PMD Personal Microderm may sound costly at first, but when you break down the cost per use (especially compared to going to a spa for treatment) it is exceptionally cheaper. The Personal Microderm costs $159 (I use the Classic – it is the pink one). That cost is relatively affordable compared to the cost of going into one facial treatment already. I’m sure the cost of going in for a facial may differ depending on where you live, but in Chicago, the price of places where I find the best results costs more than the Personal Microderm.
I will admit, it did take me longer than most people to see the results. I’ve heard others say as early as the first week they noticed a different. It actually took me almost a couple months. I don’t know if my skin just needed a lot of work (haha!), or my skin just took longer to generate the new skin. Not sure, but I was glad I kept using the Personal Microderm every week. The only thing I regret is not taking a before & after to share with you all!
I do think I still need to continue using it. I still have spots (as you can tell in my most current InstaStory) that are still visible. But at least this is an improvement compared to a few months ago.
The process didn’t hurt at all! You feel a little suction, but that’s it! I started off using the white disc (the lowest grade and meant for ultra sensitive skin). But after three uses, I moved up to the blue disc (made for sensitive skin). I may consider moving up one more to the green disc (moderate skin).
After using the Personal Microderm, I used the Recovery Anti-Aging Collagen Sheet Mask. This sheet mask helps rehydrate and soothe the skin. It is also known to minimize the appearance of fine lines and dark spots.
