The PMD Personal Microderm for MEN is a skincare tool designed for men’s skin to help reduce enlarged pores, eliminate in-grown hairs and smooth rough skin, whilst stimulating skin regeneration to leave the complexion looking rejuvenated. The hand-held PMD Personal Microderm combines the power of deep exfoliation with vacuum suction to leave the skin looking brighter, smoother and more rejuvenated than ever.
PMD Personal Microderm uses the same aluminium oxide crystals as found in professional machines, which make up a flat, coarse disc that has a deeply exfoliating effect on the skin. The dead skin cells are instantly removed by the vacuum action of the device, which activates the innate skin healing mechanism that stimulates cell renewal and collagen production in the upper layers of the skin.
This hand-held device will reduce the appearance of fine lines, light scarring and wrinkles. It will also improve the overall skin tone by fading uneven pigmentation, sun damage, age spots, and skin blemishes. In addition, microdermabrasion also helps to reduce the formation of acne as it helps to clear out clogged pores and release trapped dirt and oil. Skincare products are more fully absorbed, maximising their effectiveness.
TheChicGeek says, “To be really basic and take this back to the fundamentals, it’s a bit like sanding your face, leaving a new and soft finish.
This isn’t a gadget to be rushed or over-used. It is recommended you use it once a week for 5 minutes. Make sure your skin is clean and dry before use. The brand images are deceiving as it needs to be plugged in while using it, so ideally you’ll have a plug in the bathroom or near a mirror.
There are different heads, depending on which skin type you have. I would start with a sensitive head while you get a feel for the machine.
The heads for the face are quite small - the larger ones are for other areas - and you don’t want to go over areas twice. You need to get a rhythm of holding it on the face, without pushing too hard, and moving it around. A vacuum sucks the dead skin into the machine. The more you use it, the easier it gets and the more confident you become.
Your skin is left feeling softer and other products, you may be using, are better absorbed and more effective. It does leave you feeling like you've had a 'treatment'. I think you could over use this machine, so be careful, don’t go over the 5 minutes and use only once a week. The heads need regular replacement, but the box comes with about 9 heads, all with varying degrees of abrasion”.
