I've watched the infomercial for DermaWand and wonder what results "real" people are having? If you've used the DermaWand would you please let me know what you think?

Based on what I've read - Dermawand 'irritates' the skin - causing it to swell and give the appearance of being smoother and tighter - thus the reason it is promoted as 'temporary.' As others have noted, protecting your skin against the elements, eating right, exercising and getting proper rest are probably the best ways to slow down the aging process .... if you're past that - a lifestyle lift or a full face lift will reset the clock and you can begin again taking better care of yourself. Personally, I prefer to use natural moisturizers - offered by Mother Nature - to ward of the assault of time. What Mother Nature doesn't slow down - I accept as a badge of age honor.

It's not the device that costs so much, it's the different products for different parts of the face that cost a ridiculous amount of $$$$$. I will use the "free" stuff it comes with, but when it's gone, I'm not spending $25 for a 20 ounce bottle of "mist", come on !!!

See I didn't know it came with products. I bought from Big W & all it had was the wand & DVD that didn't work. I'm just using my own moisturiser & getting results

I loved the mist. It was the only thing worth the non-refundable first charge!

Anyone can tell me how Dermawand it Works? Does improve the collagen production? I´m 43 years old and I think I look older than my age, so I want to prove something that helps different from surgery.

Retinol is really the only thing that can restore Collagen - no other commercial product is able to penetrate the dermis to the collagen layer. Retinol is hard on the skin - initially it will cause flaking and redness as it pulls up and slough off the dead skin cells. Once the dead skin cells are sloughed, the new layer of skin is revealed. The transformation is quite amazing. Because Retinol may be too harsh for some skin types, it should not be used without first discussing this with a dermatologist. When I first started using it, I could only use 2x a week - rather than daily as recommended. Even then, my skin was red and dry for few weeks - but now I can use it regularly .... though it's not as effective at closing up the pores as I hoped.

retinol is really the only way to go

This may cause a temporary lift from just pulling and lifting by using the product. But, it is too small to garner any real, long term results. The machines in Dr's offices are much higher powered. Unfortunately, the only real way to prevent aging and get younger skin is to use sun block and limit sun exposure, hydrate often, eat many fruits and vegetables, cut out sugars, exercise, do not smoke, minimal ETOH and sad to say, get botox, facelifts, neck lifts and fillers. Some strong prescription creams such as Retin A,etc, can also help reveal the newer skin below and help to stimulate collagen but, again, this is medical strength.Most OTC creams have very little of the active ingredients to do much good. They will hydrate, but that is about it. Heredity, also plays a role how your skin ages. Look at your parents and you can see how you will age. But the bottom line is, the Derma Wand is not worth the money and you will probably see minimal results. Just another product that promises a lot but is just really a placebo that won't be worth what they charge , in the long run.

I agree totally your comment about the dermawand, so if your told it takes longer for it to work on different people, don't wait till its to late to return if it doesn't work in the time they allow it won't do anything at all.

I tried to return mine. Was a hassle & they billed me anyway. My credit card company disputed it on my behalf and I eventually got the money back b

Losing weight as you get older is HEALTHY in many cases but has the unfortunate side effect of causing sag in the face -- so unfair! It happened to me too. Microcurrent will NEVER help fix stuff like a saggier neck, although it can in the right hands do great stuff for a TINY bit of sag. After a certain point docs say just face lift and nothing else will help. Not ultherapy, not microcurrent -- after a certain point, these aren't going to be beneficial enough....I think it's more for making yourself feel a tiny bit better about the old face in the mirror, rather than any actual great difference. You have to really, really squint to see any good difference with things like microcurrent. And most of us don't have the eyesight good enough -- heck you need a microcscope for that!

I've been using Dermawand for more than 1-1/2 years now and I tell you, I notice a significant change in my face. I am 59 years old and since I started using Dermawand, the lines under my eyes can hardly be seen at all. People ask me all the time what I do or what moisturizer I am using because I look much younger than my age. (No botox or whatever because I am so scared of needles!). My routine: every night, no matter how tired I am, before going to sleep, I put undereye cream, moisturizer all over my face and neck cream then I use the Dermawand. After that, while my face is still tingling, I put moisturizer and massage my face for a few seconds. Sometimes, I do it in the morning also but very seldom since I am a very busy woman...got not much time to do it. How much more if I use it in the morning religiously? You, women, out there, be patient and maybe follow my routine! This is the best 'investment' I made for my face! :)

Hey mackerel, any before and after shots??Nah!! I didnt think so....just another fishy bogus story name...but with a sense of humor ...why else would you call yourself Mackerel....or is that that just another red herring from Simon who has erased his emails after admitting that that he works for the organisation...along with my other emails about the concept of evidence and efficiacy and validity of studies

I have been using Dermawand for a couple of years and have noticed a big difference in my skin. I use it in the morning and at night. It works for me! I am not affiliated with the dermawand company.

from what choice magazine found when they tested and anyone I know who has been willing to admit to trying it...you would the same or better results with a vibrator...there is a joke in there but I dont think it would be published.

Actually if you are referring to choice magazine on the internet site they posted two photos of the ladies who used it.the ladies apparently claim they did not see a result. I don't know why they can't because in the photos there is a difference. Users who reviewed that page also stated they could see the diff and some reviewers said they were happy. So I don't know how they can post up pics claiming the device does not work if the pics tell a diff story.thats if we are talking about the same site.

There are hundreds of skin care creams on the market. each company claiming that their products is great and if used properly over a period of time you will see results. You buy the cream ,try it don't like it so you move on to the next. Another person may try the cream like it and stick with it. If you have tried the dermawand used it and believe it does not work ,that is fine. But that does not mean other people are not seeing results. I use the derma wand and I like it. Even if it makes a diff for a few hours it's good enough for me. It's not killing my time and it's a one off purchase that lasts a long long time. You pay for foundation so your skin can look great.you buy mascara so your eyelashes look longer, you buy blush so your checks glow. All this is an ongoing purchase.And it's only temporary because at the end of the day you will wash it off and your actual skin complexion reveals itself. You repurchase all this stuff because you like the way your face looks when you apply it. And it's only temporary. So what is the diff with the derma wand. there is a chance that your skin will improve. You may wake up one morning and realise that your complexion looks better than it did a month or two months ago. I saw results ,it doesn't matter how small I see it and no I don't need a magnifying glass to see it. I'm not sagging in the face yet. But when I do and notice it doing nothing for me I will stop and find something else.simple. Hopefully by that time we won't need plastic surgery because some genius has invented some miracle cream that works like surgery! For anyone that has sagging and used the derma WANd and has seen results please post on this site.thank you.

Just want to say one more thing I have acne prone skin. A couple of weeks ago I had my chin and top lip waxed and i had a very very bad reaction. I used the derma wand to zap the zits and pimples away.2weeks later ,of course with my usual skin regime I have seen a massive reduction in the size of the zits and pimples. And yes I have taken photos over the two week period every evening . As is said I'm not claiming that the dermawand on its own ,you need to use other products. For minimising pimples I do believe it has helped me a great deal.

I wholeheartedly agree with you !! What works for some doesn't always work for others that's why we are individuals :-) Different skin types, different genetics. All I care about is the fact that it has worked for me. It has decreased my turkey neck, it has dramatically reduced a deep crease that went along my jawline and it has decreased my crows feet, and creases on my forehead - but my forehead has never been an issue, there has never been any deep furrows. People are now thinking I am early to mid 40's instead of 52, so I'm happy. The only area I wish it would work better for me is my sagging eyelids (it works but I want miracles :-) and my pores. When I count up the money I've spent on miracle creams that don't work I'm ahead with the dermawand & getting results. I didn't do the free trial, I went & bought mine from Big W.
