neck goes red
Posted 5/27/2016 by laurel
I followed the instruction to try on my neck and it made my neck super red! However, it didn't irritate my face . I guess my neck is more sensitive. But, it's a good device!

Great product - but definitely watch the video. A little tricky to use at first, but once you get the hang of it, it is great!
Worth the money and it works!

I only have used this twice since purchased and I've seen much improvement already..reduced visible sign of old scarring due to acne.

The tool is easy to use and seemed to slough dead skin cells off, but I didn't notice much of a difference as far as the appearance of my skin.
All the hype is true
Posted 11/19/2014 by Crissyb
Easy to use once you practice a bit. Do watch the video, and do use the most gentle disc the first couple of times. This is once of the best tools I have purchased, and I have quite a few.
I saw an improvement after the first use.
Really great product
Posted 7/28/2014 by SherriC
The PMD is a really great product. It takes one or two uses to really get the hang of it, but watching the dvd tutorial that is included in the box is a big help. Once you get the feel for the device, it is really quite easy and quick. And it is very effective. I've been loving what it is doing for my skin.
My skin has never looked better!
Posted 7/16/2014 by Sylvee
I usually don't review products, but I love my PMD too much not to tell everyone about it. The PMD has literally changed my skin. I had tried everything from chemical peels to fancy products, but nothing would help my age spots and fine lines. But the PMD has seriously been a miracle for my skin..the tone and texture are so much better! I'm even seeing an improvement in the lines, too! They're smoother and my skin overall is always so soft now. This is one of the best purchases I've made.
Posted 2/24/2014 by Jenn
For once in my life, I am actually glad I watched TV because I saw this product on the Today Show. I have been getting microderms from a local spa for years. It works just as well as the treatments I got done down the street. I am on my 5th week and my skin looks great.
Posted 12/11/2013 by Petra
easy to use and great results; I already love it and only used it once. No issues with the application; I read the reviews and watched the DVD presentation. As I said, easy to use.
How Has No One Reviewed This In a Year? This Device is Amazing!
Posted 9/19/2013 by D. Wheeler
I can't believe that there hasn't been a review on this product for almost a year! I bought it based on curiosity and have used it for 3 months. It is definitely the best thing I've used to see REAL, LONG LASTING RESULTS. Don't keep it in the same place too long, or else it will scuff off too much. My complexion has cleared up a ton and people always tell me that my skin looks beautiful. Truly, that is why I am writing this review and am surprised that others haven't done the same in a long time. This is a product that everyone should use because it helps exfoliate (something you should do at least twice a week) and allows your other products to have a better effect - and it works better than anything else I've tried
BEST INVESTMENT I made for my skin!!!!
Posted 11/3/2012 by Shanelle
Note: I've been using this for 8 months. I wanted a good amount of time before I reviewed it. Although I did see my skin change for the better after three treatments. Pros -gives you professional dermabrasion results from home -makes my skin glow -removes fine lines. Not sure how it will work for deeper lines but I'm in my mid twenties and my forehead has practically no lines since using the product -relatively affordable if you compare it to the microdermabrasion treatments at the derms office -fades dark scars Cons -wish it was battery operated so its more portable -results are dependent on HOW you use it. Use it properly or you will end up with scabs like the users reviewing this. -I wish the discs would last longer, I usually get 3-4 treatments per disc. -wont fix deep acne scars 'pits'. Only lightens dark acne spots. TIPS: -search for coupon codes online if you're going to buy you can lower the price to 108-135$ depending on the promos going on -use the proper disc for your face. Test your wrist with it first, if it gets too red and burns too much your disc is too rough. -use the one pass method. Just one pass on each area of your skin and move on the next. I'm guessing the users that scab are the ones that keep passing the same area with a back n forth motion or keeping the suction on the same area too long. -wash your face with oatmeal soaked in warm water after and your skin absorbs all the nutrients in the oatmeal and soothes the redness. Also makes the burn last only 2-5 minutes. Hope this helped!!!

I am 46 and have had acne since adolescence which I have a bad habit of picking. I now have scaring along my jaw line especially near my ears and the tell tell signs of too many hours in the sun during my 20's. I purchased the PMD hoping to brighten my complexion and not expecting a miracle. I am simply amazed at the difference in my skin. Much more smooth,tight, lines appear less obvious, scaring is decreasing and pores are smaller. (I have been using about twice a week for one month.) I am going to advance to the red tips because I seem to tolerate the green without any problems. You cannot linger on your face or you will rub an area raw to the point of scabbing. This only makes sense because you are using a rapidly moving rough surface designed to remove the top layer of dead skin from your face. The most amazing impact is toning after using the PMD. I use toner before and after and the amount of dirt and make-up that is lifted from my skin after I thought is was clean is an obvious reason for the improvement in my skin, decrease in blemishes, and the improvement of the impact of products because my face is better able to absorb moisturizers and serums. I am very pleased with the results especially during summer when my skin seemed to be the most out of control and difficult to manage. Use as directed, start with the practice disk until you learn your skin type and do not expect a $20,000 face lift...
PMD Personal Microderm
Posted 7/7/2012 by Sharon
I have had professional microderms before, and the PMD is very close to a professional microderm. My skin feels great afterwards!!! I would definitely recommend this product!!
great product when used properly
Posted 5/23/2012 by Dee
I have some old acne scars, sun damage and am beginning to notice brown spots that come with aging. I was excited to try this product and hopeful of the results. I have tried many types of medications and at home microdermabrasions, with little change. I cannot afford professional treatments, so that was not an option for me. My skin is not usually sensitive, so I started with the green disc on my cheek. The suction was too much and I did end up with a burn mark for over a week. It did go away and did not scar. I did not give up on the product, because this was my fault. I now use the blue disc and I don't start on the most sensitive areas of my face, such as my cheekbones. The product does work when you follow the directions. Your skin needs to be cleaned well and use a toner prior to use. It is also very important to follow up with a cream to soothe your skin. I use a microdermabrasion cream from Mary Kay that is very soothing and cooling. I also use Mary Kay vitamin C serum which helps to fade dark spots. The pmd opens your pores and this allows creams to absorb better into your skin and work more effectively. Your skin should be red/pink after the suction treatment because it is encouraging blood flow and collagen production. The redness should fade within a few minutes. If you move the device steadily over your face as directed and never leave in one spot, you shouldn't have a problem. Start with the blue disc and try on other areas of your body ie. knees, chest etc... and get used to the feel of the system before trying on your face. Stay with it because it does renew your skin.
Glad I tried it!
Posted 3/21/2012 by Tiffany
When I got this product in I watched the DVD, read the instructions and tried it out on my chest before trying it on my face; I am glad I did all three; not knowing how it truly worked I wanted to try it on a part of my body that would easily be covered (my chest) before trying it on my face. When I tried it on my chest I was left with a bright red circle on my skin for 2 days because I let the device sit completely still when I first applied it to my skin; boy am I glad I learned this on my chest rather than my face! When I got up the nerve to try it on my face I was both nervous and excited; the anticipation was worth it! My skin was smoother and had a glow to it that it had not had in a while! After one use, the fine lines that I have wern't as noticable and my pores were a lot smaller. I can't wait to use this product again. Watching the video, reading the instructions and trying it on my chest helped prepare me to use it on my face; without causing harm to my facial skin. I also use retin'a so I had to stop that treatment 2 days prior to using the PMD and continued using it the next night without any burning. I am so glad I purchased this product and can't wait to see the improvement in my skin with continued use!

How often should I change the disc?? I am confused about this. How do I know a disc is used up- by looking at it?? Or by number of times used. In otherwords.... How Many Uses per disc??
Posted 3/1/2012 by arthur
i've been using the pmd for a few months now and im 18 but like to take care of my face and used alot of peels to try to help with my uneven skin tone but nothing has worked as good as the pmd helps to make my products sink all the way into my skin been using the green disks but going to start mixing it up with red and green for better results love what it has done though so far.
Posted 2/23/2012 by Shawna
I am 47 years old and have been using the PMD for three months, My skin has fewer wrinkles and pigment spots. My skin also looks brighter and I've been told I now have a 'glow', This product is very cost effective. It takes some practice to use it correctly. Also, I change the disks frequently and I think that improves the results. I have already gotten my money's worth many times over. I also use the PMD once a week and I now use the most abrasive disks.

PMD Personal Microderm System

I sincerely commend the ingenuity of this device which is portable and effective to the treatment of aging. Out of pure love for this system, I purchased it to immediately slow down noticeable signs of aging on my face, and to my pleasant surprise the effect was great. Thanks.
Works for Me!! Love It :)
Posted 11/6/2011 by Syl
I have had microdermabrasion treatments on and off for years. The PMD is fabulous, truly Salon/Spa quality results. My recommendation is watch the video a couple of times then test try the product (blue/sensitive disk) on your legs first until your feel confident to move to your face. And, keep the device MOVING, don't let it rest it on your face.
Posted 10/19/2011 by Theresa
I don't usually write product reviews, but this is one product that I found actually lives up to its claims. I've had my PMD system since January, and, at 65, my skin has never looked clearer or healthier. My hyperpigmentation that was very bad on the left side of my face has been reduced drastically and the enlarged pores on my cheeks and nose from oily skin and acne in my younger years are now barely visible. I started out with the medium disks and now alternate between these and the red coarse discs with little to no irritation. I will occasionally have a rosacea breakout, but a once over with the PMD and it's gone by the next day. This was definitely a great investment!
Posted 10/19/2011 by alana
I live in australia and dont no what power converter i need before i even order the pmd, does any 1 no before sunday as my birthday is soon and was hoping to have it then???? but i need to no what converter other wise im not allowed to get this....
Best skin care product I've ever purchased!
Posted 10/16/2011 by Lauren
I had severe dark brown acne scars all over my face. They were terrible and I was using loads of makeup to cover them up. I use this product once a week and within two weeks of use I had one of my co-workers comment that my face looked really 'fresh.' I use it in conjunction with the M2 skin refinish daily which is also great! A word to the wise....if you use the M2 after exfoliating it will burn for a few minutes so if you're really sensitive to this you may want to wait until the next day to apply the serum. Now after a few months I have absolutely no scars! I actually go out without makeup and it feels great! My skin feels tighter and my pores are smaller. Not only did it get rid of my scars but I haven't even had anymore breakouts! I have tried tons of acne medications and treatments and this is the first one that has ever worked for me! My boyfriend still makes comments about how good my skin looks.
Incredible treatment for fading brown spots
Posted 10/5/2011 by Maria
I absoluttely love this product. Delivers what promises to do. Only negative exfolating discs are expensive. Drop price to $10 for six, it would be much better. Do not worry if you have some sensitivy on your skin, it goes away. Amazing results
Posted 10/2/2011 by hapamanda
I am pretty impressed with this machine. The cost is great compared to dermatologist charges. It is very inexpensive upkeep also since the discs can be used multiple times and are only $15!! I don't really like the large discs. i feel the small discs work best, but I have only used the sensitive ones so far. I just ordered the green ones, so hopefully I will see even better results. I have seen improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles and reduced age/sun spots! My makeup goes on more smoothly and I get so many compliments on my skin. Very happy with this product, but I also don't have anything to compare it to :p lol
WOW!!!!! GREAT FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN!!!
Posted 9/6/2011 by Summer
This is an amazing product!!! Thank you so much. I was very afraid to purchase the PMD but now I'm glad I did. I have always had great skin, but for the past 2 years I have been suffering with acne and this product does an amazing job keeping me clear. I use it once a week right now because I just got it 3 weeks ago. I use Olay Regenerist Cleanser before and the Regenerist serum after. Both product aid in cell renewal and regeneration so they are great products to use along with this system. I have read some of the statice reviews and just wanted to say the ones that say it is drying their skin out probably isn't using the right moisturizers, if any. Yes of course ur skin will be flacky after u use the PMD. it removes the first layer of dead skin from your face, but if you use a cell regenerating moisturizer right after and everyday between treatments you will not experience any dryness. Once again, thank you PMD this product is a miracle worker!!!
Posted 8/19/2011 by Rachel T
I have acne scars and chicken pock scars on my face and I have seen them diminish substantially since I started using the PMD 2 months ago. It was kind of difficult to get used to at first, but I can see a real difference now that I know I've got the motions down correctly.
Posted 8/19/2011 by Jody
I was talking to a friend who got this PMD and loves it - so naturally I knew that I had to get one too and see what the hype was about. I have just come back here to write how much I love the product too and let everyone know that it really has improved my skin. I used to get microdermabrasion done at the spa a couple of years ago but stopped because it became way too expensive. The Personal Microderm really has given me the same amazing results and I can't believe how affordable it is! (You are probably thinking, 'Almost $200 isn't cheap!' But when you are paying almost $2,000 for treatments from a professional, you would say the same!) I also wanted to say thanks to the customer service team who walked me through using the product before I tried it the first time. I love this site!

I have a good friend who reviewed the PMD for her blog and she recommended it to me. It was a bit tough at first putting out the $179 but i couldn't be happeir. My face is actually glowing and my wrinkles next to my eyes and lips have made a huge improvement. I can't wait to see what this baby can do in a couple more months.
A Great Investment!
Posted 5/9/2011 by Pam
Having used the Personal Microderm for a couple of weeks, I am amazed at the results. While, I was a little nervous at the beginning, I watched the DVD and read other reviews, then started with my hands, and knees. Once I gained some confidence, I began using it on my face. Be sure to hold your skin tight and move quickly and you will be fine! I am really excited to see quick results and feel that my face has never looked healthier or brighter. An investment which you will be thankful for again and again!
Posted 5/9/2011 by kim
I am almost 45 years old and have had several professional micro-treatments, this product does just as nice of a job and costs way less. I am on my 4th week of using it and my skin is softer, I am getting ready to step up the abrasiveness on my discs so I expect continued improvement of my skin. I would highly recommend watching the video because it is important to keep it moving so you don't burn yourself. A must for anyone wanting improved skin tone.
Easy to use
Posted 5/2/2011 by WithOurBest.com
Obviously this product is nerve-racking! It is your face! Your precious face! I started on the tougher skin - forehead and nose and it worked great! My skin was red for about 40 minutes and felt puffy, but the results were soft and smooth skin. At $179 it is much cheaper than the spa - so if you are interested in saving money, this product is where it is at!
Nervous Nancy but Happy Holly now!
Posted 5/1/2011 by Krystal S.
At first I was seriously nervous about putting a fast rotating disc on my face and having skin cells fly off, but I was super pleased at how well this actually did work! Not only was it pretty foolproof, my skin actually felt and looked better after I tried it. I have medium to dry skin so I was worried about the appearance afterwards, but especially when combined with the skin refinisher and moisturizer, my skin looks great! Definitely recommend!
Great Results - Brighter Smoother Skin
Posted 5/1/2011 by LR
I've been curious about microdermabrasion for a while, but the cost has prevented me from actually trying it. When I was asked to try home microdermabrasion, I jumped on the chance. The product claimed to give professional results right at home, and at a fraction of the cost. I was particularly interested to see its effect on skin imperfections such as dark spots. Trying something like home microdermabrasion was nerve racking at first - I was worried about not using it correctly, irritating my skin, looking like a tomato (ala Samantha on Sex and the City after a chemical peel), etc. However, the instructional CD is priceless and gave me the confidence to dive right in! I am now four weeks into using PMD and my skin is noticeably smoother and brighter. The few dark spots I had are also starting to fade - I can't wait to see what my skin will look like after a few months of use! My advice: For the price of one professional treatment, you can get an excellent tool that you can use over and over again. If you love fresh looking radiant skin, give home microdermabrasion with PMD a try.
Posted 5/1/2011 by Judy
I've been using a complimentary PMD system for a few weeks now and I really believe I see a difference in my skin. I've been using it on my cheeks, lower and upper, my forehead, the area near my chin, my chest and hands. My chest has severe sun damage and I've already noticed a smoother, less wrinkly appearance. My face appears to be clearing up as well as I still get acne. My face is softer and has a more even tone. I definitely think it is working and to date, I would recommend the product. I am planning on purchasing the two recommended products that supplement the PMD because I love the sample of M2 that was sent. The system arrives with a very detail oriented yet not over the top DVD that explains everything from setting up your system to warnings on using the product carefully to avoid skin damage. The hand held device is easy to hold, easy to use and cleans up just as easily. The only thing missing is a carrying case but not a problem as one can be found to easily accommodate. I also like how compact it is for those on the go. It only requires a weekly treatment and after the first use, you can already feel your skin becoming softer. I can't wait to keep using it to see the difference after a few months. I am happy with the product and will definitely keep using it.
PMD a Great System!!
Posted 5/1/2011 by Vanessa
I've been using the PMD for a while now and well I can say I'm pretty please with it. The DVD that was provided helped me to get to know my system and how to use it correctly. My Skin feel nice and smooth and really helped with makeup application. Easy to use system that does the Job. I totally recommend this system to anyone. :)
Great Tool, easy to use, Big benefits!

This tool is great! I could never afford the spa/salon prices to get this done, but this tool makes it affordable and works wonders on my skin leaving it fresh and smooth and younger looking. It's easy to use and shows instant results. I recommend it to anyone with problem skin.
Difficult to use, but it works
Posted 4/29/2011 by phyrra
Tthis machine works. After just one treatment I saw results on my face that nothing had previously been able to budge. In my opinion, if you have sensitive skin like I do, it is critical to watch the video and use this machine carefully until you get the hang of it. Yes, it is expensive, but it's cheaper than visits to a dermatologist, and cheaper than multiple microderm abrasion treatments at a spa.

My face felt cool, crisp and clean
Posted 4/24/2011 by Bridget - CheekyMommaof2
While there are many products that promise results and don't deliver there are just as many great products that actually live up to their claims! One of those products that provides visible results is the PMD Personal Microderm system. It left my skin softer and smoother than ever before. My face felt cool, crisp and clean. I could see and feel the difference in a very short amount of time. Watching the instructional DVD is a must! I also recommend starting out with the blue exfoliating discs on your face until you're familiar and comfortable using the system. The blue discs are milder and more gentle on your skin than the green ones are. I prefer the green exfoliating discs for my heels, elbows and knees! The PMD Personal Microderm system is easy to use and comfortable to hold. It's also small enough to use at home or while traveling.
With practice and care a great product!
Posted 4/24/2011 by Lauri
I have used the Personal Microderm System for 3 weeks now, once per week. If you receive this product do NOT use it without watching the product demo, this is extremely important, without watching the demo you could seriously hurt damage your skin. The first day I used the product I was EXTREMELY careful, yet ended up with red streaks down my cheeks which ended up scabbing and some brilliant red circles on my cheekbones....I needed to attend a meeting that evening and quite a few people commented wondering what on earth happened to me. At this point I was pretty leery since I wanted to help my skin not harm it. It took almost a week, but my face healed up and I bravely gave myself a second treatment, it worked perfectly. I think the trick is to be certain you only go over each section of skin only one time and be sure not to hold in one spot for any length of time. After my third week I feel that my skin is much smoother and softer, I did notice the softness immediately. The downside is that I can't seen to get the hang of using it on my hands, but it's a personal problem and in my opinion it is not a fault of the system. There are two creams that are suggested for use with the PMD and I think it's a good idea to use them as well. I really like the PMD and do recommend it, just use a gentle hand. For the few minutes it takes to use the PMD, and the results it has given me I think it is very well worth every penny. At $179.00 it really is a bargain if you compare the price to getting the same results at a Dr. office.
Posted 4/24/2011 by Nancy
I have used the PMD for a couple weeks so far. The PMD is very easy to use. My skin feels softer. My skin does seem to be breaking out a little bit more, but I think that is becakuse the PMD has taken the dead skin off and the blemshes below the surface are coming out. I don't have the pain or scaring that others have written. I get mild redness initially and then it clears up easily. I wish the PMD came with a bag to store it in as there are small parts that can easily be lost.
Easy to use
Posted 4/23/2011 by Jasmine
Basically, it exfoliates your skin and this allows skin texture to improve as well as creams and serums to absorb better. The kit included a charger, the PMD exfoliator, 2 different sized caps, 6 tips (the green one is for tougher skin and the blue ones are for sensitive skin!), an instructional CD and 2 mini serum samples. What interested me about this product was that it claimed to help with keratosis pilaris (on my arms!)'
Posted 4/21/2011 by Ellen Christian
I have really sensitive skin so I wasn't sure how a home micro dermabrasion was going to work. I really hate the larger pores on my nose and forehead so that's where I decided to focus. Because my skin is so sensitive, the blue disc is the right choice for me. It did make my skin pink when I first used it and left it a little sensitive. It went away after only a few minutes but it was a bit tender at first. You don't see immediate change after one use. This is something that you need to use for the entire recommended time but it does make a difference in the larger pores. If you're considering any type of in office treatment, I would definitely say to try this first. It's very easy to use and literally takes only a few minutes a week.
Fast, Easy, and Saves $$$
Posted 4/20/2011 by Tara
I don't have a lot of time to run out to the dermatologist's office. And I don't have a lot of $$$ to spend on treatments either. So this is the a great product for getting great results at home. At a fraction of the cost! It worked wonders on my skin.
Posted 4/20/2011 by Patty
I have used it over a three week period so far and my skin is happier skin. It's smoother and my pores are less noticeable. It has a funny sucking feeling when you first use it but you get used to it and it soon feels rather good. It does sound a bit like a swarm of angry bees but even that fades into the background with use. It warned of redness after use but I didn't experience this.
Posted 4/20/2011 by TheChickenista
I've had my system for the last 3 weeks. After the first treatment I noticed a softer face right away. But now after the 3 treatments, I'm noticing a lighter redness on my cheek & nose area. Those was my problem zones the cheeks and nose. Ive always had redness I had to conceal but I'm already noticing that fading and evening out. I'm totally impressed with this! Love that its simple and quick. 15 minutes and I'm done!!

I had great results with this product. I have to admit that I almost used the product without watching the video first, but was glad I chose to watch the video so that I knew exactly how to use the product.

I am madly in love with this machine. After just one use I experienced so many benefits on my face and my chest. Brighter skin, less bumps and just a completely fresher complexion. I am so excited about being able to do this at home without paying hundreds of dollars in a salon. Easy to use and affordable! LOVE IT! I was a little red right after using it, but after that wears off, it's great!
It's a powerful little sucker for sure!
Posted 4/13/2011 by Leslie M.
I've used the Personal Microderm three times. The first time I used it, and mind you I did watch the video three times, It left two abrasions on my right check that hurt for two days. I was brave and used it again the following week with much better results. Be sure to pull the skin taut and continue to move the PMD continuously. If it remains in one area it will abrade the skin. I applied pressure the first time I used it. I will not do that again. Just glide over the skin for best results. I love my serums but it's not a good idea to apply these directly after a treatment. Wait til later that night or the next day. My skin is glowing after the third treatment. It feels smoother and my lotions and serums are sinking in better. I will continue to use the Personal Microderm. I really like it. Just be super cautious the firs time you use it!
Posted 4/10/2011 by Kelsey Apley
I was nervous as to if it would hurt or not when I put it on my skin, so I made my husband come in and be the guniea pig, haha and make sure it wouldn't kill me. He said I can't even feel it! So I said good enough and I started out, it barely hurt at all, I made sure to move it how I was shown, and not leave it in one place as that can hurt your skin and will make it raw. So I used the blue tip as it is for more sensitive skin, and since I did my face I thought it would be great. It had great suction and I instantly saw it taking the dead skin cells and it was doing exactly what it said it would! After I cleansed and moisturized skin as it said after the steps I then could see it really made my skin look firmer and healthier! I will say the moisturizer burned a little on my face since it was a bit sensitive after I used the microderabrasion system. It felt similar to a sunburn, and it only lasted maybe 5 to 10 minutes! Plus best of all you can use it on other area's rather than just your face, you can do your hands and arms, this really is a multi-purpose product! So overall my experience with this system is great! I really noticed a difference in my skin after 1 use, and I love it isn't something you have to use everyday to keep your skin looking great. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants healthier skin!
I LOVE IT!!!

I love this machine!!! I use it once a week!! It softens my face and it also helped reduce the discolored spots on my chicks.Watch the video careful and use as directed. It works great!!!
Haven't used this yet.

I'm not sure if I am suppose to pose this question here but I was unable to find an FAQ on this microdermabrasion system. This past november I had a serious breakout which soon was controlled by antibiotics, birth control, and topical differin/duac that was prescribed by my doctor. The severity of it is so bad that you can't see either of my cheeks. They are filled with hundreds of red marks. I have a couple on my forehead as well. Will this product do anything for my red marks? I do have shallow scarring that I hope will diminish with continuous use of this product. I have also purchased the M2 lotion for aftercare. I really don't want to take the laser therapy route and thought that I can do this in the comfort of my home for however often (depending on my sensitivity to the product). Please, for any of you who have used this product continuously and saw a reduction in your red marks left over by acne, I'd love your insight. I haven't left my house for 4 months due to the severity of things and I'm hoping that this product will give me a new life... or my old one back again. :(

I am 27 with oily, dehydrated, congested skin that is somewhat sensitive and prone to breakouts. I was interested in this product because of enlarged pores, and because the norm for me was to have peely bits of dried skin on my face every single day that made applying makeup challenging to say the least. No exfoliating product I tried ever really solved this, and no amount of moisturizer seemed to prevent it from happening. I've been using the unit about every 5 days for a month. I'm not very aggressive with the treatments, because I know my skin's limitations and respect them. After discounts and the skincarerx reward points, I paid just under $100 for the unit, which I think is a good value all things considered. (If I had to pay full price, I'd probably give it 3 stars.) PROS: I believe the pink marks from my blemishes fade much more quickly, and I've had fewer blemishes. Overall, my skin feels better and just plain looks healthier. The dreaded peelies have been all but eliminated from my life, which is a relief. Results are immediate (face is SO soft!) and I can easily control and adjust the intensity of the treatments based on how my skin is doing at the time. Best of all, I feel like I'm getting more out of the pricy skincare products I already have because products definitely absorb MUCH better. CONS: Products absorb MUCH better--I found out the hard way when I followed the treatment by using a product with AHA's. It stung like crazy, and over the next few days my face peeled like crazy (I had used the product before and never had such a response to the stuff!). I also had to back off slightly with the retinol products I'm using. Basically, if you add microderm to your routine, you should probably reconsider all the rest of your routine and the products you're already using because they may work more effectively... or even TOO effectively for comfort. My second complaint is that the small cap has what appears to be a manufacturing flaw (the plastic is rough and uneven around the edge where it touches your face, I'm afraid it will trap gunk and bacteria over time.) I had the cap replaced, and the second one I got was even worse than the firs, so that was pretty disappointing. The only other issue is that I wish I could buy just the small replacement tips, because I only use this on my face, and I'm going to wind up with a lot of extra wide ones lying around. Also, a replacement filter should come with each set of tips (really, a filter probably costs the manufacturer less than a nickel and they aren't sold separately.)
Finally A Way Out
Posted 1/19/2011 by violet lashea
I have suffered with acne for twenty years, i have always had a pretty face and very nice body. I kept my face hid under hair everywhere i went. I been in and out of the Dermatologist for most of my young life. I am now 38 yrs old. I always had low self esteem due to the scars of the acne. The personal Microderm has given me a second life, a chance to come alive and finally to stop hiding my beautiful face behind hair. I'm using the M2 products and they are working really great also. The first time i used the system my face was kinda red, but that did not scare me i just knew to be a little more softer and not stay in one spot to long. I had a treatment today and my skin wasn't red at all. I will still go to the derma for my chemical peels but i believe i found a winner! Thanks to GOD!!!!
Great even for sensitive skin
Posted 1/6/2011 by Melissa Rye
I asked for this microderm unit for Christmas. I am always a little skeptical about skin care products due to the fact that I have very sensitive and acne prone skin. I have used this product three times now and am extremely impressed. Not only is my skin smoother after use, but I really have noticed a reduction of fine lines and acne scars. I have also noticed a reduction in the size of my pores and have noticed less blemishes. I know there is not an actual acne cure, but this system has helped reduce my problem. It did take a time or two to learn how to use the system, but the dvd was very helpful and I suggest that everyone watch it. (it only takes a couple of minutes) Also this system is well thought out for sensitive skin because it has different discs for whatever your skin type. Thank you for letting me get my skin back in order!
Great product! Use common sense!
Posted 12/31/2010 by Jill
I have had professional microderm before and loved it. When I saw this product I obsessed about getting it. Luckily my husband got it for me for Christmas and I used it that night. I LOVE IT!!! To anyone thinking about getting this product, watch the video and educate yourself. All of the negative reviews that I have read on this site could have had a better experience with this product if they would have watched the video and used some common sense. If you are using this product correctly it will work wonders! Seriously, When you try a new product on your face, of any kind, be educated on how it works and why it works. If you understand what is happening, and what it is that you are doing to get the desired result, then you should not have scabbing or scratching, or dry red skin afterwords. If you are worried because you have sensitive skin, then use the fine grit (blue) discs and do not do as many passes over the areas you treat. Also I would say don't use the Personal Microderm and new facial products for the first time, at the same time. What I mean by that is use the personal microderm tool first and get used to it, after a couple of treatments, THEN try new facial products like the M2 stuff. You may like the microderm but not the facial products. If you don't try this you will never know how great it is and all of us that have it and use it correctly will have the beautiful skin you desire, and too bad for you. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it, and I have only done 2 treatments. Best Christmas present ever!!!!
You don't need to be 'old' to use this product!
Posted 12/28/2010 by Abi
My mom told me about what an amazing thing Personal Microderm was. I thoguth that it was a cool little tool and that it could make a big difference for those with age spots and wrinkles. I have never had great skin and I have also battled acne since puberty. I am now 25. I gave Personal Microderm a try and I cannot believe the results I got from only one treatment. I also used the M2 products that are sold on this site and I have never felt my skin so soft and refreshed in my whole life!!! When I got home my husband commented on how amazing my skin looked. ;) I was a bit scared to use the product because I knew it was going to suction to my face, but I loved it! When I finished the treatment I could literally see clumps of dead skin in the filter! Nasty, I know, but I knew it worked well because I could not only SEE and FEEL the difference but others noticed as well. Since the first use I have used it 3 times and my pours are smaller, my face is less oily, and I have never gotten so many complements on my skin. I am totally sold and I have sold 3 to family and friends! ha! It's amazing and I reccommend this product to all those who think that they are too young to use it! It is amazing!

O.K. I got this the morning of christmas eve and couldn't wait to use it. I was a little afraid because of some of the comments about scabing and etc. but I watched the video and went to the bathroom and used it while my husband was sleeping. Had no problem at all !! I could actually see it making a difference as I used it! After washing and cleaning up I went to get my husband up. He got up and kept stareing at me knowing nothing..and I said 'i got my microderm this morning and used it already' and he said 'OMG so thats what it is I could see something was different but didnt know what it was. He told me I looked fresh and smooth and i had no makeup on except eyeliner and mascara. My daughter said the same thing when she came over by the way she is 27 just to let you know i am not a young woman. So I am sold and cant wait to use it next week to see any difference..I will let you know :)
LOVE IT - IT'S THE BEST!!
Posted 12/6/2010 by Dana
I have had this thing for over two months and I can tell you - the two age spots I wanted to go away - are almost gone!! This thing is just like going to the spa without all the extra $$$. My skin has never looked or felt better and I haven't had a single issue with it! But YOU MUST be careful with it! You can easily go over an area to much and make it really red or scrape away skin. I go over my acne and scabs and have never had an issue with it. I have super sensitive skin so I had to start with the sensitive discs - and haven't had a problem. This thing is AWESOME and is totally worth every penny!! Don't listen to any negative reviews - if you use this thing PROPERLY like the video suggests you'll find yourself SUPER HAPPY you spent the money!! I AM!
Love this product!!
Posted 11/22/2010 by Kathryn
Didn't believe it would really work - BUT boy was I surprised. Love, love, love this product!!!! Would highly recommend for anyone who wants cleaner, clearer, smoother skin. Don't waste your money going to a spa for microdermabrasion - do it yourself with this easy to use tool. SkinCareRX you need to also sell the filter.
Great treatment & good investment
Posted 11/14/2010 by Stephanie
I love this, it has saved me spending $100 a shot at the spa's and it gives me the same treatment, I use it once a week and see the difference in my aging skin, it leaves it soft and supple. It takes a day to wear off the tenderness, but think about it, you are taking off that dead layer of cells and coming up with a new soft,supple layer. I wish they sold the filter, I need to replace mine but can't see it as an option in accessories to this item, does anyone know where you can buy a repl filter? This is so worth the money and 20% off right now!
The Proof was in the Trying
Posted 11/1/2010 by Laroo
I did not want to even try this tool because I am so fearful of harming my skin. I have heard that microderm can be rough on your skin. I reluctantly agreed with my friend to try hers out before I bought my own. I tried it for three weeks. The very 1st time i used it my skin felt much softer and smooth. it was not painful at all in fact It felt very good and tingly when I put on the cell renewal lotion right after the treatment. By the 3rd use I had become more proficient with using the tool and cannot believe the difference in my skin. I have purchased my own now and will use it for the rest of my life. I will not need to go spend lots of money at the doctors office now. This is an amazing little find for me. Great job who ever came up with this idea.
Perfect for Acne Prone Skin!!!
Posted 10/17/2010 by April
I have used this at home microdermabrasion kit only two times and I have noticed a remarkable difference in my skin--even from the first time! I am a 25 year old female who had fairly good skin, free of blemishes, but recently due to hormonal changes I am breaking out.. I have tried various products, but nothing seems to work and when I used this treatment for the first time it dramatically reduced the size of my facial acne. In addition to that, the Personal Microderm System leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft! It's too early to state any other results, but so far so good! I am definitely going to use this product once every two weeks or even once a week! It's so hard to stay away from this treatment!
Posted 10/14/2010 by Tao (iamgrape1119.blogspot.com)
I've been using this for about a month, and I can honestly say that I love it. While it took me a while to get the hang of how to use it, but after that it's been smooth sailing. It leaves my skin soft and glowing for days, unlike traditional scrubs that only offer immediate result. It is more of an investment, but trust me, it'll do wonders for your skin.
A Worthwhile Investment for Better Skin
Posted 10/14/2010 by DC
I've been using this system for a few weeks now, and I'm really impressed with the results! I was hesitant about using something that appeared to be so abrasive on my sensitive skin, but after the first couple of uses I got the hang of it. My skin is a little pink after using the system, but the effect is only temporary, and afterward my skin feels incredibly soft and smooth. I've noticed that my acne scars have been fading faster, and I don't need to use as much serum/moisturizer on my face because it is absorbed better. I would say that if you get regular microdermabrasion treatments at a spa or from a dermatologist, this would be a great alternative to help you save money and get fewer treatments. It's one of the most expensive skincare tools that I own, but it's a worthwhile investment.
Great, innovative product!
Posted 10/5/2010 by Alyssa
When I first received this, I was really scared to use a product that kind of grinds your skin... hehe~ I took a star out because it did hurt for couple of usage. Either I have really sensitive skin or it could be mentally. Anyways, I was skeptical that it wouldn't improve my skin. It didn't improve after first usage but it got better as time went on. I am hoping as each time I use this, it will get rid of my freckles and sun spot. It definitely helped my pores though and my skin seems smoother! :)
Posted 10/4/2010 by Tabitha (FreshMommyBlog.com)
I've only had the chance to use the Personal Microderm a few times (as it's a once-a-week treatment), but each time my skin has emerged softer and smoother and much, much happier. So far, I've stayed with the little blue discs, because they offer a milder exfoliation, but when I get the guts to go for it, I'm puttin' on the green one. (Just so you know, each disc lasts for about three treatments). Here's the thing, the texture of my skin has improved in just the three short weeks that I've been using it, and though it's is still a very far cry from that of a porcelain beauty, I can already feel my confidence building around the skin I'm in... which has always been acne prone and not very smooth. I can't wait for the next treatment, because I know that each time I get better results. i've had professional treatments before (when I had more time and more money / before kids) and to me, this is equivalent. I certainly hope to see better results in clearing my skin as I continue to use it.
Posted 9/28/2010 by Amber
I just received this on Sept 29th and used it for the first time.I have light-fair skin and mild redness in my cheeks. My skin is most certainly on the sensitive side so I used the blue exfoliating disc(larger one for face and smaller one for around nose, chin, areas on forehead). Even the blue one made my skin a light-pink tone after wards and now my skin feels incredibly smooth. There's nothing better than smooth, healthy and vibrant skin. :) I'm gonna continue to use this for the next 2-4 weeks and then post my thoughts. But, thus far, It gets a thumbs up for me. Now it's finding out how long the discs last, etc.
Posted 9/11/2010 by Lulu
I received the Personal Microderm to review about 2 weeks ago, and so far after 2 treatments, I couldn't be happier. My skin is glowing, and oh-so-smooth that I just want to touch it all the time! At first I had my doubts and fears. Doubts because I wasn't sure if I'd like microdermabration as I have never done it before, and I wasn't sure if the Personal Microderm would do what it claims without harming my skin due to its abrasive nature. Fear because I have very sensitive and acne-prone skin, and with my wedding coming up in 3 weeks, I was really afraid that my skin would react badly to a new treatment. But after reading some reviews on the site here and learning all the positive experiences people had with the Personal Microderm, I decided to give it a try right away, and I am so glad I did. I haven't broken out a single time since I started the treatment, and now a week away from the wedding, I plan on doing another treatment this week to get my skin into top notch condition and picture perfect. I noticed a significant lightening of my acne scars on my cheeks, and I can only imagine with continued usage, what benefit it could have on my skin. I highly recommend you to give this a try, it is really easy to use even for someone who's doing microdermabration for the first time. And one set comes with 6 replacement discs enough for at least a dozen treatments, for the price of one treatment if you were to go to a spa or dermatologist. So it is a great way to give microdermabration a try, or if you are someone that goes to do professional microdermabration often, then you can keep this kit at home to give your skin a pick me up in between the more expensive treatments.

OMG! I just received my personal microderm on 8/27/10 and after only one treatment I noticed a difference %u2013 and I am still seeing the difference 4 days later! UNBELIEVABLE! I can only imagine what my skin will look like after several treatments! This is one of the best investments I have ever made! I currently pay $250 every 6 weeks for professional microdermabrasion treatments in Washington DC - and I am not exaggerating the results are identical! Needless to say, I have cancelled my upcoming appointment and will gladly keep the extra $$$ in my pocket! I am so thrilled about having this system I want to cry! BUY THIS AND I PROMISE YOU WON%u201DT REGRET IT!!!!

do you buy it on this website skincarerx? or personalmicroderm? Also does anyone know what type of toner is good for oily acne skin?
Posted 8/26/2010 by San Diego Momma
I have to admit I didn't expect much...I've bought sooooo very many skin products and been disappointed in the end that I thought the same thing would happen here. Luckily, I was sent the product to review so didn't need to shell out yet more money for something I expected to not work. But after using the system just two -- TWO -- times I noticed a smoother, clearer complexion. My skin is 'thick,' so I used a lot of pressure and the 'head' with the most grit. I experienced very little irritation, which calmed down quite a bit after applying some moisturizer. I also didn't wear makeup for the rest of the day to give my skin a chance to rest. Since I've been using the system, I've noticed my VERY OILY skin is less so and my VERY CONGESTED PORES are also less so. It's really made a difference in those two areas. One little-expected benefit has also been how much smoother and even-toned the back of my hands look. I used the system on that area, again not expecting much, and was pleasantly surprised. Since I turned 40, my hands have looked like they're 80, so thank God I can do a little something about that. I used to get professional microdermabrasion several times a year (at $50 a treatment), so it's nice to be able to do this myself on a regular basis without paying an arm and a leg. I'm very happy. I gave four stars because I've only used the product a month and reserve full awesome ratings for after I've had a chance to see how it performs over time.

After using this for a couple of weeks, my skin already feels much softer and I can tell that the spots are slowly lightening up. I like that I only have to use this once a week and it's quick and easy. I don't have to get dressed and go to an appointment to have it done. That is a huge plus for this stay at home mom. The other big plus is I am saving money. I will admit that since I have never used something like this, I did have a learning curve and learned that I need to be very gentle when using it. Using the Personal Microderm does not hurt me while using it, however my skin burns a bit and is very sensitive afterwards. To me, it feels somewhat like a sunburn. When I put the recommended aftercare products on (I chose the M2 Skin Refinish and the M2 Skin Recovery Moisturizer), it stings a good bit for about a minute (like a sunburn under a warm shower). After that though, it just goes back to the mild sunburn feel. I have quite sensitive and fair skin so I know this may vary depending on your skin type. I have found that using a softer touch and not pressing down so hard is best for me. The very first time I used it I scraped my cheeks because I pushed too hard for my delicate skin type. Now that I know to use a very light touch I don't have this problem. I now just have some redness (that again looks like a mild sunburn) in the areas I used it on for about a day. Please be sure to watch the instructional DVD online on their website or the one included with the product as it gives information on this. I suggest starting with a very light touch then working up to what you are comfortable with if you do try it. I have also started to use it on the scar on my arm. I have only used it one week on my arm and hope to see results soon. I wanted to wait a few weeks to do my arm to make sure that I had the process down. I was sent a Personal Microderm to review.
Great Beauty Buy!

I loved this product. It definitely has a great return on investment, you will save in the long run by doing this at home instead of at the spa. Also, with my sensitive skin which turns red at any time didn't turn red at all. You definitely see a difference after two or three uses. Small and portable enough to stay in your bathroom. Check it out!
Posted 8/11/2010 by dcrmom
I was pleased with the results. It%u2019s not hard to use, but there is a quick video to watch first. It feels a bit sand-papery, and there%u2019s a mild suction that feels funny but isn%u2019t painful at all. When I was done, my skin was soft and silky smooth, and I think my acne scars even faded a bit, but it%u2019s hard to be sure. I can%u2019t wait to see how my skin looks after using the system for a few more weeks. I%u2019m definitely making this at home microderm a regular part of my routine, and I can%u2019t wait to see how my skin improves over the next few weeks.
Review: Personal Microderm
Posted 8/3/2010 by Bev
I was asked to review the Personal Microderm, a microdermabrasion at home product by SkinCareRx. I'm not sure how this relates to organizing, but who would refuse? The personal microderm is easy to use once you get used to it. It is a small hand-held appliance with two sizes of rotating heads - one for the face and one for the body. It only took a few minutes to go over my face and hands, the areas I was most concerned about. Both areas look improved after just three uses. And it's so nice to use it right at home
Loved doing a review on such a great product!
Posted 8/2/2010 by Chelsea White
I personally have tried microderm systems that a dermatologist offers in their offices. I must say this little hand held system can really measure up to thr doctor's machine. I started off with using this product on my hands once a week with the large green disk. The first time I used the product I was astonished at how much softer my hands felt. I have very rough hands so this system was an amazing addition to my skin care routine. I have not tried the product on my face yet, but will be doing so very soon. Pros - Leaves skin silky smooth - Price is great considering it does the same thing as the overly expensive doctor's machines. - reduces the look of fine lines. Cons - Really cant find any! This product is painless and well worth the money.
Cleared up what other home microdermabrasion products couldn't!!!
Posted 8/2/2010 by Tasha S.
I have tried other home microdermabrasion products before. One being the Mary Kay Timewise Microdermabrasion which did make a small difference, but the results only seemed to go so far. My acne scars never faded, I still had mild acne and some uneven skin tones. I knew that if I wanted a complete change I would have to look into something more professional and more expensive. Pretty much I decided to give up. Until the Personal Microderm.... After just one week my skin felt moisturized and smooth. After using only 3 weeks I was sold. My acne has almost completely gone away, my deep acne scars have faded tremendously and my skin tones are so much more even. This is so worth the money and over all saves you money and time. I am sold!!!!
Posted 8/1/2010 by cindy
I heeded the instructions to only use once a week however, Id like to use this every day! Using it once a week helps remove dead skin and leaves my face feeling super soft. A light suction will remove the dead skin cells while a gentle abrasion takes off the top layer of skin. Make this one part of your skin care regime.
Beauty must have
Posted 7/30/2010 by Sky
With each treatment, I love the Personal Microderm more and more. I can see a difference in my skin, from the diminishing age spots and freckles to the wrinkles. This system has given me confidence in my skin. I am loving the way my skin feels and looks!
Posted 7/30/2010 by Melissa (The Makeup Divas Beauty Blog)
You don't need to spend hundreds of dollars on sessions at the Spa when you can achieve some pretty good results just by using Personal Microderm. I've only used this system 3 times and already I have noticed an improvement in my skin's texture and appearance. It does a great job exfoliating the skin and making it feel rejuvenated. Great investment and I would definitely recommend it.
Personal Microderm can help you get there!
Posted 7/29/2010 by Felicia
I constantly advocate for stepping up your anti-aging routine at an early age. I%u2019ve been doing peels and regular exfoliation since I was 21. Now my advice is not to get overly aggressiveve, but gentle exfoliation, starting at maybe once a week is imperativeve for healthy glowing skin. If you are looking for an alternative to spending hundreds of dollars a month on professional micro dermabrasion treatments, consider Personal Microderm!
A Good At Home Option
Posted 7/29/2010 by Carleen (Beauty and Fashion Tech)
I tested this device for Skin Care Rx, who gave me a system for purposes of a review on my blog. I found that it was very easy to use and had the immediate effect of softer and brighter skin. I also felt that it helped some with my adult acne. I have done two treatments and like it overall. I have melasma and have not noticed an effect on that yet, but would not expect to after only two treatments. It certainly exfoliates better than anything else you can get at home, so I have high hopes for it. At $179 it is much more affordable over time than getting professional treatments. The blue tips are quite gentle, so sensitive skin types can use those with little pressure, while those like me with tough skin can use the green with more pressure. This makes the device very versatile. I definitely recommend it.
Personal Midcroderm works for me
Posted 7/29/2010 by Jennifer
Personal Microderm is an at home microdermabrasion system. I had been fearful of trying these in the past, but this was very gentle and there were no side effects at all. The kit came with both written directions and a video to watch and it was extremely easy to use. While Personal Microderm can be used on many parts of the body, I have only used it so far on my face and hands and have been very pleased with the results. At home microdermabrasion was much easier than I thought it would be, at least with Personal Microderm. I'm scared to even color my hair at home. And the kit even comes with a serum and a cream for your face to use after the treatment. I can't say how this product will work on everyone, but I for one, love it.
Posted 7/28/2010 by Kate of www.painted-ladies.com
It's been three weeks, and I am excited to continue using this and watching my acne scars fade. It is so much more affordable than going to a spa! I love how everything is presented to you, a very easy tool to use that isn't at all intimidating.
Totally worth trying!

I've struggled with acne most of my life and my face is proof of my battle. The system has decreased my scars, large pores and made my skin noticeably smoother and healthier.
Excellent facial product
Posted 7/28/2010 by Jillian
My face glowed for a good 6 days after using the Personal Microderm. People noticed it and I did not need my makeup. I consider this a very, very good thing. It evened out the redness in my face. And the best part is that I only have to replace the discs every 2-3 months. For $15, this is a great deal after the initial investment. My skin is beyond super sensitive and I have seen no ill effects from using Personal Microderm, though everyones skin is different.
Posted 7/28/2010 by Kaiasmommy
this is really an amazing product! After a few treatments, blackheads are disappearing, pores minimizing, and skin is smoother in texture. Great price for the relative skin treatment. Exfoliates WAY better than scrubs or gritty lotions.
Great exfoliation for at home
Posted 7/27/2010 by Christine
Exfoliation should be part of everyone's regular skin care routine, and this little machine offers deeper exfoliation than most of us would be able to do on our own at home. There are discs for your face and body, though I've only tried the face discs so far. The body discs are still somewhat small, but I think I'll end up trying them on my chest and hands. I had no problems with over exfoliating any areas, just keep the machine moving and you should be fine! I've been using this for about 2 weeks now and I have definitely noticed smoother skin, smaller looking pores and fewer blackheads. Treatments are fast and easy!
Posted 7/27/2010 by Gloria (divashopblog.com)
The great thing about this system is overall improved, smoother skin. There is a danger though. You need to keep the machine moving & not stay in one place for too long. Otherwise you risk penetrating to deep (I accidentally did this & got a couple red marks. I'm clumsy. :-( ). However, this machine does come w/both paper instructions & an instructional DVD (Yes, I did watch it. Attentively.). So, if you're not clumsy like me, you should be ok, lol. In spite of my clumsiness, my results overall were actually pretty good! I don't see a sign of dryness on my face & my face feels smoother than it has in a long time! Overall, I do recommend it. You just need to be really careful. Clutzy people like me? Even more so! Lol.
It Really Works!

I have struggled with problem skin for almost my entire adult life. I have horrible acne scars, large pores, and constant breakouts. While I have found products to help diminish breakouts, I hadn't found anything that would truly help the large pores and scars...until the Personal Microderm. After one treatment, I could feel that my skin was noticeably smoother and my pores already seemed a bit smaller. After three treatments, I can barely see my pores anymore and my skin is looking better and better every day. I LOVE this product and HIGHLY recommend it to anyone with problem or congested skin.
Easy to Use

After watching the included DVD, I found the system quick and easy to use. After two uses, my hands are feeling much smoother. With continued use, I hope to see an improvement in the coloration as well.

I wasn't really paying attention to my skin until I reached 30. Age spots and fine lines started to appear and I tried several ways to preserve the youthful appearance of my skin. This tool is a great investment especially if you're on a tight budget. I cannot afford to go to skin clinics and day spas all the time. Tip is to use a light hand when doing the treatment. I made a mistake by putting too much pressure on it and it caused a small red spot on my face. Thankfully it's not painful and can easily be covered by concealer. It will work as expected when used properly. I definitely recommend this item!

I have been using once weekly for 4 weeks now and the results have been very impressive! Once you get the hang of it , it is very easy to use. My skin is smooth, complexion more even toned and vibrant, and fine lines and wrinkles reduced. Like many others, I was hesitant to purchase but this device delivers! Anxious to see the results over the next few months - Highly recommended!
great tool for looking your best

I LOVE this product. It performed exactly as advertised and left my skin looking smoother, younger, softer and refreshed. It exfoliated my skin to perfection and best of all, I was able to get 'professional' results from home.

Worked great once I got the hang of it. Make sure you feel and hear the suction happening. I went back and watched the video after using it a couple of times and that helped. I also like the M2 exfoliating cleanser. That combination is awesome.

I love the personal microdem! I have had midroderms for years. Some were good, others not so good. I like having the ability to control the areas I work on and felt the tool was everybit as effective if not more than salon equipment I saved time and lots of $ having the kit in m home. Very user friendly.

I am loving my new personal microderm that truly lives up to its claim: immediate improvement! I am a licensed Esthetician and perform as well as receive professional microdermabrasion treatments...I purchased this product thinking that it could maintain the results from my professional treatments. After using the personal microderm for 3 months now, I can honestly say that the results are very similar yet the personal microderm is more convenient and so much more affordable than the professional treatments. After only the first treatment my skin couldn't feel softer, it glowed and looked clear. After the second, it remained just as glowing and my skin tone and evenness continues to improve along with increase in radiance and brightness. SOLD!
Love This... Proud of Me!

This is Awesome

I thought it might be somewhat of a gimmick. It isn't.... it really works. I have seen the age spots on my hand fade in just 4 weeks of treatments. It is a great tool and has saved me a lot of time and money.
best 5 minute makeover ever!

I was a bit skeptical initially about the home use personal Microderm UNTIL I took the ten minutes to study the instructions and put it to use. I am sold and to prove it, I sold 3 the following day. It literally took me 10 minutes to give myself a full facial treatment. I am a licensed Esthetician and have used many products over the years. This one is a winner!
