With noninvasive procedures becoming more and more popular, it is only understandable that there is growing interest in at home options for these procedures. From laser hair removal to home microdermabrasion, the options are expanding.
This little handheld device (it’s the size of a small flashlight) is a home microdermabrasion device from PMD, and I’ve been testing it out. Exfoliation is one of the key steps in a great anti-aging regimen, and for those of you keeping track I have now found a grand total of 4 facial scrubs that I like. While scrubs are great, if you want bigger results than just smoother skin you might want to look into microdermabrasion. Usually offered in dermatologists offices, this uses the same aluminum oxide crystals found in their machines. Rather than shooting the crystals at your face, the machine uses little discs embedded with the crystals and uses them to exfoliate your face. Simply turn on the device and slowly move the disc around your face. Make sure you keep moving, staying in one place for too long will over exfoliate that location, basically scratching up your face.
I used this machine a few times over about a 2 week period and the result was definitely smoother skin and fewer clogged pores, they were definitely looking smaller after 2 weeks. I didn’t have any issues with abrasions on my face, but I admit that I was pretty scared of moving the disc around too slowly. My results were great and I recommend trying this out if you’re looking for stronger exfoliation.
