Personal Microderm System Review

I am so excited to tell you about the (PMD) Personal Microderm. It is a personal microdermabrasion at home system that your able to use at home or anywhere! I know, now you don't have to spend hundreds of dollars, gas money, and time going to a salon or spa to get great looking skin.

Since being diagnosed with cancer my skin has gotten absolutely horrible. I have extreme acne, constant breakouts, enlarged pores and acne scarring. I am so embarrassed and self conscious about my skin that I have actually given up trying to conceal it because it makes it look ten times worse. I have tried many, many, many products(that is probably an understatement). I even went as far as getting on a high dose of anibiotics(they made me so sick but it was worth it to me if my skin would improve). I became depressed and had to be put on an antidepressant. I started to believe that I was just going to have to deal with my new; unflattering skin.

I was given the opportunity to review the Personal Microderm System and to tell you the truth I was on the fence. I didn't want to get my hopes up, thinking my skin would get better or even clear up. I had that hope before and wasn't ready for the extreme let down again.
The Personal Microderm System includes

1 Personal Microderm
6 Exfoliating discs(2 green-1 large, 1 small & 4 blue-2 large, 2 small)
2 Caps
1 Reusable filter
1 Instructional DVD & Sheet
*Before using the Personal Microderm System read all directions carefully and watch the instructional dvd.*

The exfoliating discs determine what type of 'abrasion' your going to get. The green exfoliating discs are more abrasive and are for tougher/thicker skin and the blue exfoliator discs are a finer grit more for sensitive skin. They also include large and small discs. The larger discs are for larger surface areas like the body and the smaller discs are for your face and neck.
Also included are two(2) caps(they go over the exfoliating discs)to help provide a barrier between your skin

and the exfoliating discs. There is one large for the large exfoliating discs and one small for the small exfoliating discs.

The Personal Microdem rotates the discs to remove the dead, dry skin from your face to make way for newer skin. It also has a vacuum type suction to bring the skin closer to the exfoliating discs as well as remove some of the dead skin cells.
Once you've decided on the type of disc is best for your skin type your going to pull your skin taught and upwards. You'll turn the PMD on and place it on your face going in an upward motion making sure not to stay in one place. If you keep it in one place too long it will start to go penetrate the dead skin and into your fresh new skin and cause a sore and scabbing. You'll start to see a white 'film' on your skin which is the dead skin cells being removed from your face(which is kind of nice-as you can see where you've already passed with the PMD). Once your done you'll wash your face again, dry well, apply the M2 Skin Moisturizer and then a SPF. The PMD is supposed to be used once every two weeks or less depending on how your skin reacts to the first use.

I found the PMD extremely easy to use and can't imagine my skin without it ever again. My skin hasn't felt this good in such a long time. I can see a big change in my skins texture, tone, pore size and color. I have had clearer skin just after the first couple of uses and am really excited to see the results with regular use.

The one drawback to the PMD are the M2 products that you have to buy seperately. It came with the M2 Skin Refinish 20% Serum and the M2 Skin Moisturizer for this review, but I only got a couple of uses out of them. I would aslo like to add that the PMD isn't just for acne prone skin but also for those with rosacea, wrinkles, sun spots, and uneven skin.

You can purchase the Personal Microderm At-Home Micrdermabrasion System at SkinCareRx for $179.00 & the replacement discs for $14.80.

Thank you SkinCareRx for the opportunity to do this review!

Blog Mania '11 Sponsor- Perricone MD

Perricone MD is an amazing line of skin care products. Whether your looking to get younger looking skin, clearer skin or that perfect glow they have exactly what you need.

I was lucky enough to try the Cold Plasma and my skin drank it up like a tall glass of water! I have been using it now for a few months and have noticed a big difference in my skins texture. I usually have dry skin and we all know what happens with dry skin-wrinkles show! My crows feet smile lines are a lot more hydrated and thanks to the Cold Plasma don't say, 'Hey look at my wrinkles!'
Dr. Nicholas Perricone, MD, FACN, is a board certified clinical and research dermatologist. A brilliant scholar, Dr. Perricone completed medical school in just 3 years, graduating with distinction. He completed his internship in Pediatrics at Yale Medical School and his Dermatology Residency at Ford Medical Center. Dr. Perricone is regarded as the Father of the Inflammation Theory of Aging.

After years of research Dr. Perricone arrived at the conclusion that cellular inflammation may be the underlying cause of wrinkles. According to Dr. Perricone, this inflammation is not the redness that is visible to the naked eye but rather microscopic irritation that takes place in your cells leading to cellular damage. He believes that this inflammation is responsible for skin-related problems like breakouts, wrinkles, and loss of firmness.
You can read more about Dr. Perricone here.

When I came across Amy Cornwell Designs I was super excited to not only purchase her items for myself but for others as gifts.

In 2010 Amy started doing more metalsmithing work with soldering and more complex pieces. She hired her first employee in 2010 as well.

Amy's Heirloom Collection is a grouping of pieces that are just that 'Heirloom Pieces.'
