An At Home Personal Microderm That Really Works

An At Home Personal Microderm That Really Works

If your skin feels dull, looks red, and generally lacks that natural glow from your youth, you should consider microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion is a deep exfoliating process, designed to “sand” your skin, removing the tough outer layer and exposing new, fresh skin. When done regularly, it reduces fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, acne scarring, redness, and minimizes pores.

For years I went to a spa and had frequent treatments. I flip-flopped between microderm and a hydrafacial, and my skin never looked better.

But then my local spa relocated while I was pregnant with Vivi, and I took it as a sign that I should reprioritize my time and reign in my spending.

I decided to focused my spending on high potency, better skincare products, pay better attention to my diet and exercise, drink a ton of water, and invest in a few at home gadgets that kick my routine up a notch. 

One of those products is the PMD Personal Microderm Pro-At-Home Microdermabrasion Machine.

I test a ton of products and gizmos as part of my job. The majority of them never make it to the blog because they are gimmicky and ineffective.

And, as you know, I buy everything with my own money, nothing is ever gifted or sponsored. That way, when I say I love something, you know I do, and I love this thing

For about the cost of one professional facial, this handheld machine allows you to get n at-home treatment with fantastic results.

Young skin regenerates once a week, but as we age, it takes longer, much longer. With microdermabrasion, you can accelerate your cell turnover by using this once a week.

It’s a non-invasive treatment that helps you age gracefully. Within a few treatments, you’ll start to see softer, younger-looking skin.

Here’s how it works: 

After cleansing your skin, dry it thoroughly.

This Microderm comes with a series of discs with varying levels of intensity. Start with the mildest and build your way up.

Pull your skin taut and move the machine up and over your skin. I start on my chin and swipe it across my jaw bone towards my ear. Move across your face, line by line.

You’ll feel a light suction, this exfoliates and helps your skin create new collagen.

Work your entire face and then apply your favorite serum or moisturizer.

Do this once a week at night or in the morning. Whenever you do it, just make sure you give your skin some time to breathe. Please don’t do it and then layer on makeup.

You’ll notice that your products absorb deeply into your skin, so use it to hydrate and fill your skin up with lots of good for you ingredients.

Thank you for sharing this tip! I love the results of micro derm, but not interested in sitting in a salon or spa these days. If I remember correctly, it feels like a cat licking my face with sandpaper! Lol!

Hi, Megan. I had a micro peel with PRP on Tuesday and my skin is painful, red splotched, and tight. It feels burned. I'm so tired of the expense, pain and downtime of professional med-spa services. My skin in older and sensitive so the extreme treatments are most times just too much. Frankly, I'm retired and ready to give my skin a rest and take care of it gently. Your reviews give me a place to start with products that work. Thanks, again!

I'm so happy to find these recommendations helpful! My skin is also very sensitive so I would suggest starting off with the lowest intensity and gradually work your way up! :)
