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.
1 Personal Microderm
6 Exfoliating discs(2 green-1 large, 1 small & 4 blue-2 large, 2 small)
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.
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.
