So I bought for myself a Christmas present--the PMD Personal MicroDerm device that costs $135 after using "frmheadtotoe" as my coupon code for 25% off. It's originally $179 but the coupon code knocks it down quite a bit.
I've seen MANY reviews on this product on youtube, most of them being good reviews, and one of them being a bad "i got my skin burned by this device" video.
One of my FAVORITE youtubers Jen FrmHeadToToe uses this device, hence the coupon code I used, and although her skin isn't flawless, she says it helps her with hyperpigmentation since she has a constant mini battle with pimples on her skin. That caught my attention. I have so many hyperpigmentations and I want to get rid of it in the next couple of months if I can, and I'm hoping this device will do the trick.
The one "bad" video I saw was of an honest opinion that this device burned her skin so badly and she will never be using it again. I am scared out of my wits that that will happen to me and that I will get more and more scars.
I better discontinue my Retinol gel use so that my skin isn't sensitive to this device. The instructions say that 2 days prior to using this device, stop using the Retinol topical gel, however I don't think 2 days is enough. I will discontinue using it for a week or more.
The product is in the process of being shipped to my apartment. I hope I get it soon! I'm quite excited. I think if it doesn't work for me I'll give it to my mom whenever I am able to see her again. But for now, I am hoping and praying my ass off that this device works because it was $135 and I want my scars gone! I long for the days of perfect skin that I had back in 2008-2009 and I didn't wear a stitch of face makeup and my skin looked perfect.
You will see me review this in a couple months if I decide to keep it. They give you a month to try it out and you can send it back if you want to before the 30 days are up.
WISH ME LUCK!!!
You KNOW how many posts I've made about my skin and acne and acne scars? You KNOW I'm fed up with it and have been so desperate to get rid of it by drinking water, changing pillowcases daily, drinking green smoothies, going to the dermatologist, etc.
BTW, I am on Solodyn 80mg for my acne. So far it's cleared up SOME of my acne, but not all, and it's approaching 2 month mark. It's only been about 1.5 months since I've started taking it, but I honestly thought it would clear me up faster than this. Oh well, patience right? Or maybe I need a higher dose. Dunno.
Alright I gotta go to my Dr's appointment and apply for jobs.
See yall later~
