PMD Personal Microderm Elite Pro Reviews: Latest, Upgraded Version

The PMD Beauty Personal Microderm Elite Pro is the newest version of the PMD’s line of microdermabrasion and pore vacuum devices, and this time it competes with professional, in-office treatments. The skincare tool features multiple speed settings and exfoliation intensities you can customize to suit your skin with. Within months of consistent use, you’ll notice a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, more even skin tone and decreased dark spots, improved hydration, and smaller pore size. 

The device also claims to deliver clinical-calibre exfoliation results while effectively eliminating the need for anyone to shell out on weekly in-office treatments. Rather, for the cost of just one professional treatment that can be done at the comfort of your own home, the idea is captivating.

PMD Personal Microderm Elite Pro reviews

The PMD Personal Microderm Elite Pro comes in its own carrying case that organizes the caps, cords, charging base, discs, and the actual device itself into a slim caddy. The device doesn’t actually need to be charged as often as many users reported theirs stayed strong for a month after one full charge.

The Body Cap and discs that come with the device work the same way on the body as they do on the face but are larger to cover more surface area at once, and they’re extremely helpful if you want super soft skin everywhere.

How Does the PMD Personal Microderm Elite Pro Work?

PMD Elite Pro breaks down the experience into three different steps: exfoliation, vacuum suction, as well as absorption. The discs give off a sandpaper feel (which becomes rougher as you increase the intensity levels) and spin to slough away dead skin cells. PMD claims this process accelerates new skin growth and reveals more youthful skin. While it exfoliates, the device suction onto your skin—a process that increases cell turnover. Post-session, your skin will be able to absorb skincare products better. Not only do active ingredients sink into the skin deeper, but moisturizer is essential to help your skin heal after so much exfoliation. 

How To Use the PMD Personal Microderm Elite Pro?

After choosing the appropriate cap—body, face, or blackhead—together with the exfoliating discs, choose one of the three variable speed and suction levels, which the brand refers to as TruTier™ settings. Though, we recommend practicing with the white “training” disc until you get the hang of it to avoid injuring your skin. Next, pull the skin taut and move the device across the skin in long, smooth motions. Be careful not to go over the same place more than once, and avoid lingering on one spot to reduce over-exfoliation. With all the steps done right, you’ll actually be able to feel the device suctioning your skin, and you can see the exfoliation happening—in the form of white dust (your dead skin). 

How Often Should You Use PMD Microderm Elite Pro?

PMD recommends weekly usage. Though we feel like this is too much, and if you do want to use it weekly, we advise you to use it on the lowest setting and the lowest intensity disc. 

In terms of long-term changes, PMD days that significant results can be seen in eight to twelve weeks (vary from users to users). 

PMD Personal Microderm Elite Pro Reviews: Before And After

Immediately after the treatment, you’ll have the constant urge to touch your skin because it reveals such soft and smooth skin, but also slightly red and tender (which is normal after a microdermabrasion session). Bear in mind that when you’ve used the most intense disc and highest speed/suction level, you might experience a slight burning sensation in some areas. Trust us when we say the device is powerful, so be extremely careful! After the treatment, apply a generous amount of moisturizer to replenish your skin’s moisture and keep it hydrated, you’ll find your skin calms down quickly. 

How Much Does the Device Cost?

At $202.53 (as of 8/3/2023), the PMD Elite Pro surely isn’t cheap, but when compared to what you’d pay for one in-office microdermabrasion session, it’s a steal. However, you’ll also need to consider the additional cost of new replacement discs. It’ll set you back $20 for a set that allows for roughly 24 sessions. 


  • Long battery life and fast charging
  • Cordless
  • Adjustable in terms of intensity, discs, and caps
  • Sleep packaging and design
  • Easy to use
  • Reveals softer, smoother, and brighter skin
  • Quick set-up


  • Pricey

  • Takes some work to remove blackheads
  • Causes mild redness after the treatment

Our Final Verdict: Is PMD Elite Pro Really Worth It?

For the cost of only one professional microdermabrasion or pore vacuuming session, the PMD Microderm Elite Pro offers countless treatments; however, you only need a few to start seeing softer, smoother skin. If you’re looking to yield professional results at home, this device is a winner.
