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.
My Thoughts on the Personal Microderm

The instructional video is helpful so be sure to watch it (only 8 minutes) before you use it. For the first time I would recommend using the blue discs as they are for sensitive skin, even if your skin isn't sensitive. Make sure you are not hovering in one place for too long because then you'll irritate your skin and create scabs--that happened to me. It worked much better on my forehead and chin than on my cheeks, but that could be because I have very sensitive skin. I think it's not as easy to use at first, but becomes easier over time. I did instantly see dead skin cells come off as I used it so that was a definite plus. Definitely use the serum and moisturizer the night before you use the PMD. You are not supposed to use them directly afterward and for good reason--they will sting. I think I will notice more of a difference after multiple uses as I've only used it once so far. Overall, I think it is a good product for microderm abrasion. I also did a more extensive review (with pictures) of the PMD on my blog here: http://www.ohtobeamuse.com

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.)
Great Comments. We will send new cap and filters 0

Thank you for your comments: The cap usually does not have any edges and is smooth. This is very unusual. We will send you a new cap. Please send an email to Kim.nolan10@gmail.com with your information. We do now send a new filter with every box of discs. We started that about 2 weeks ago. We do sell only small discs as well from the home site and or you can order them if you prefer via the 800 #. Some net sellers do not offer all the options. Enjoy this and keep giving us feedback that we can help with. Personal Microderm.com

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!!!!

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!

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!

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 :)

I wanted to like it. I used that 4 times (blue disc) and each time my face was very flared up for 3 days. It was smooth and a bit more even out, but I prefer just to use M2 line, which doesn't make my face that red and oversensitive. I think this is great idea for regular skin, not sensitive.
LOVE IT - IT'S THE BEST!!

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!

Well I just received my kit and I was so excited to try it. First let me say it has been several hours and my skin feels like it has been ravished, not to mention that the M2 burmed like holy hell. I am afraid that when I wake in the morning I am going to have scabs on my face. I will have to learn to be a little less heavy handed. I will update this review once I have a few treatments done to give an accurate review, but out of the gate I can honestly say that I dont know if this product is for me, or just an impulse buy.

I have sensitive skin and I would have to say that this product is not great for us. It works a little too well sometimes - its like a little mini dermabrasion machine. Great for people with tough skin - not so great for those with delicate skin. I can use it on my forehead and nose occasionally, without too much problem, but I avoid the cheek and neck area - otherwise it leaves me red and irritated. Plus, I've discovered it is super important to watch the video and read the instructions cause you have to do it right to avoid injury. I hope your skin recovered okay.

I have very delicate skin and decided to get a micro done at my friend's spa to help with acne scaring. my first session she did the micro which hurt like hell then put an acid peel on after it saying it would help my results. well the peel basically burned my sensitive skin off and I to had the scabbing effect with scaring. to this day she says its superficial scaing and i spent over $500 on more gentler micros and laser to correct her mistake.
Love this product!!

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.

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!

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.

My skin is a little dry(not overly) and I was excited to use this to make my skin really smooth. The day after I used it, my skin was smooth and makeup went on really well. The next day my skin was extremely dry(peeling)-more dry than before I used it. I tried it over a 5-6 week time period-making sure to use it only 1 time per week and tried both the blue and green attachments. I always had the same result.

did you use a good cell renewal and rejuvenation cream morning and night each day in between treatments? if you use good lotions and creams daily the dryness should not be happening.

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. I have before and after pictures here: http://aprilathena7.blogspot.com/2010/10/personal-microderm-system-review.html 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! You can save $30.00 with coupon code "APRILATHENA". (No comission received, just a helpful discount code)
A Worthwhile Investment for Better Skin

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 product!

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.
Great, innovative product!

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! :)
Love it!

I bought my personal microdem about 2 month ago. I only used 3 times, my skin started peeling. I wasn't sure if my skin is too senstive or it suppose to be like that, so I stpped use it for a month, and my skin went back to normal again. I wanted to give another try 2 days ago, I turned it on and it was broken already, very disappointed! I am waiting customer support line give me an answer how to return it if I have lost my receipt, but it has been 3 days havn't heart anything back! plus i live in UK, wonder I have to pay postage or not!

You probably burned the motor up with the 220 volts in the UK. It is not made for Europe. You need an adapter to use it there. You may have sensitive skin and need the soft disc.

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.

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.

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!

I've never used this product but I'm also thinking about ordering it myself. Ever since I was 15 I have had break outs around that time of the month. Nothing where my doctor wants to put me on any type of medicine but enough to bother me. Recently while I was getting a Isolaz treatment done ( this will also really help with your acne) my dermatologist told me about a product called Clenziderm Pore therapy toner. i have been using it for about a month and the results are better then anything I've ever tried before. You can also get it for half the price on amazon then you can here. Give it a try you will love it. Good luck!

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. The Personal Microderm works by removing the stratum corneum. It's the thin layer of skin cells that prevent lotions from absorbing into the skin. That's what the white dead skin was on my skin. 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 did a review on the M2 products in January and you can read that review here. 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!
Pleased

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

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!

Personal Microderm System review I would like to first start by thanking SkinCareRx for giving me this wonderful opportunity to try the at home personal microderm system and the chance to share my own review. I absolutely enjoyed my time using this product. 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%u2019s machine. Product description - Achieve amazing anti-aging results at home with Personal Microderm System. It works just like a professional microdermabrasion treatment without the hassle or cost. The hand-held device uses the same aluminum oxide crystals as the ten thousand dollar machines found at your doctor's office. It smooths away dead skin cells, diminishing age spots and other signs of aging - The system includes 1 personal microderm, 3 exfoliating discs (2 green and 3 blue), 1 electric cord (Standard U.S. Outlet), 1 facial cap, 1 body cap, 1 reusable filter, Instructional CD and Pamphlet.. (http://skincarerx.com/Personal-Microderm-System.html) 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%u2019s machines. - Reduces the look of fine lines. Cons - Really cant find any! I have enclosed three pictures of my hand, same hand in both pictures. The first is the before and the second is the after shot. You may not be able to see much of a difference, but I am telling you now there is a great amount of difference in the texture of my hands. My boyfriend even mentioned the other day that my hands are so much smoother! The third picture is just an example of how it looks after the product is run across your skin. This product is painless and well worth the money.

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!!!!
Love it

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.

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!
Great Product

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!

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

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 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.
Great Value

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

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.
Awesome Product!

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

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!

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.
Worth trying!

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!
Staci 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.
Outstanding product!

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.
SOLD!

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!

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!
