Understanding Microdermabrasion and Its Benefits

Microdermabrasion is the superhero of exfoliation. Picture tiny crystals gently buffing away the top layer of dead, dull skin instantly revealing the fresh and youthful skin underneath. The process of Microdermabrasion triggers your body's natural healing process, encouraging cell turnover, and stimulating blood flow rich with collagen and elastin delivering immediate and long term benefits.

Say buh-bye to those pesky dead skin cells that are dulling your complexion. Microdermabrasion sweeps them away, leaving your skin smoother and brighter than ever after just one treatment.

Got fine lines and wrinkles? Microdermabrasion can help minimize their appearance, giving you that smooth, youthful look you've been dreaming of.

If you're battling acne or pesky blackheads, microdermabrasion can come to the rescue! It helps unclog pores and prevents future breakouts, so you can rock that clear skin with confidence.

Uneven skin tone or pesky dark spots? Microdermabrasion can help fade those spots and even out your complexion, leaving you with a radiant, uniform glow.

While the results are certainly worth going in for, traditional microdermabrasion treatments performed in clinic range from $75- $300 per session and suggest 12 sessions for optimal results. At this point, you should be asking, can I do microdermabrasion at home? The answer is YES! Say hello to the PMD Personal Microderm, our quick and effective personal microderm tool  that delivers  professional, clinical exfoliation results in as little as 5 minutes once a week and pays for itself in just one treatment. 

So, what is the personal microderm? Our handheld home dermabrasion machine uses perfectly calibrated vacuum suction and spinning disc technology to provide customizable treatments with our aluminum oxide crystal discs ranging from ultra-sensitive to very intense exfoliation and is clinically proven to allow your skincare products to absorb 20x deeper. It is super simple to use and I am going to tell you exactly how.


A Step-by-Step Guide Using Personal Microderm Tools

Step 1: Start with a clean, completely dry face. Using your preferred cleanser, remove any makeup, dirt, or debris and dry completely with a clean cloth. 

Step 2: For first use, it is highly recommended you use the white training disc already inserted in your device, once you are comfortable and your skin adjusts you can gradually increase the level of intensity with our range of discs. 

Step 3: Screw the cap on tightly. 

Step 4: Plug in your device and select the low speed setting initially.

Step 5: We recommend trying a few passes on your leg or arm to get comfortable with the suction, the gliding motion, and test your speed.

Step 6: Now you’re ready! While pulling skin taut, quickly glide the device in an upward motion across your skin without applying pressure. Starting from the center of your face and moving outward like in the directional guide below, complete one pass per area and keep the device moving, don’t pause in any areas. 

Step 7: Once you have completed your treatment, apply toner to restore your skin’s pH balance

Step 8: Replenish the skin with our PMD recovery face mask 

Step 9: Apply moisturizer to hydrate the skin and help facilitate the skin’s healing process

Step 10: You’re done - now wait one week before your next treatment. As your skin adjusts you can increase the level of exfoliation by adjusting the speed settings and graduating discs. Keep in mind, each disc can be used for 4 treatments before replacing

Best Results with Proper Skin Management Before and After Dermabrasion

Okay, listen up! Here are some before after microdermabrasion insider tips to ensure you get the most out of your microdermabrasion treatments. 


Prep your skin: Cleanse your skin thoroughly and dry completely before your treatment to ensure those dead skin cells are ready to bid farewell and you aren’t just removing the day’s grime or makeup. 

Avoid harsh exfoliants 24-48 hours before your treatment. Skip your acids the night before to maintain the health of your skin barrier and prevent over exfoliating.


Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate: You will get so much more out of your serums and moisturizers now that they don’t have that dead skin barrier preventing absorption so keep your skin hydrated post-treatment to help it recover faster and maintain that gorgeous glow.

Sunscreen is your BFF: Protect your freshly exfoliated skin from the sun's harmful rays by slathering on some SPF. Trust us, your skin will thank you!

Skip Harsh Products: Give your skin some TLC post-treatment by avoiding harsh exfoliants or acids for a few days.


Maintaining Your Personal Microderm Device

Your personal microderm is built to last and extremely simple to take care of. Follow these simple steps:

  • Remove cap and rinse that dead skin away with warm water
  • Pull the disc up to remove
  • Remove the foam filter under the disc and rinse with warm water and allow to dry
  • Once dry, place in the box or travel case until next week


Avoiding Mistakes with Your Home Dermabrasion Machine Use

We all want instant gratification and I assure you, you will get it but less is more! The Personal Microdermabrasion is safe to use but it is important to remember not to overdo it. Here are some common mistakes we see: 

Over-exfoliation: Excessive or too frequent microdermabrasion treatments can lead to irritation, redness, and even damage to the skin. It's important to follow the recommended frequency and begin with the one pass per area with the white training disc to avoid overdoing it.

Incorrect Pressure: Applying too much pressure during the treatment can cause abrasions or scratches on the skin. You want to allow the vacuum suction to do it’s job in making appropriate contact with the skin before gliding.

Neglecting Pre-treatment Preparation: Preparing the skin properly before microdermabrasion is crucial for maximizing results and minimizing potential side effects. This may involve cleansing the skin thoroughly, drying completely, and avoiding certain skincare products or treatments beforehand.

Skipping Post-treatment Care: Aftercare is essential for ensuring proper healing and maintaining the results of microdermabrasion. This may include moisturizing, applying sunscreen, and  avoiding harsh skincare products or procedures. 

Performing Microdermabrasion on Active Acne: While microdermabrasion can help improve the appearance of acne scars, it's generally not recommended to perform the procedure on active acne lesions. Doing so can exacerbate inflammation and potentially spread bacteria, leading to more breakouts.

By avoiding these common mistakes and ensuring that individuals can enjoy the benefits of smoother, more radiant skin with our PMD Personal Microderm.

There it is, the pros and cons of microdermabrasion, and how you can safely and effectively do it yourself with our at home personal microderm. Achieve smoother, more radiant skin and elevate your beauty journey today!
