If clogged pores are your most dreaded skin concern, try something different than your usual go-to products and add a device to your beauty arsenal. Enter PMD Beauty. The brand is known for its cutting-edge skincare devices, like the PMD Wave Pro ($129), a “skin spatula” that tackles enlarged pores, blackheads, and congested skin while bringing along many other benefits.



PMD Beauty, PMD Wave Pro — $129.00

Uh, so what’s a skin spatula, anyway? Beauty pros say the tool can be used by both skin-care novices and experts. “Skin spatulas are devices that may be used at home, or by an aesthetician during a facial, to help remove excess oil, blackheads, and comedones from the skin,” Dustin Portela, DO, a board-certified dermatologist based in Boise, previously told Well+Good. “They typically have a small, flat metal tip on the end of the handle–giving them their ‘spatula’ name. When powered on, they emit small ultrasonic vibrations that can help to loosen material in your pores. You gently press and glide the flat tip along the skin to encourage removal of sebum and other material from your pores.”

That’s exactly what you do with the PMD Wave Pro—simply press it in, glide it across your skin, and watch in wonder as it removes blackheads, whiteheads, and other nastiness seamlessly from your pores. It’s kinda gross to use, tbh, but incredibly satisfying.

Aside from lifting and removing gunk and debris, the PMD Wave Pro’s “lift mode” uses an electrical current via E-Wave™ Technology to stimulate the facial muscles, resulting in a more toned and snatched appearance with regular use. That’s not all—it also features an “infuse mode,” in which positive ions split serums and moisturizers into smaller molecules so your skin can absorb your products even better. Is there anything the PMD Wave Pro can’t do?!

It’s not the only high-tech beauty device from the brand worth shopping, either. PMD Beauty’s virtual shelves are stocked with all sorts of quality skin-care gadgets that *actually* work, including at-home microdermabrasion devices, lip-plumping systems, and gua sha tools.

Personal Microderm Elite Pro — $299.00

Another equally satisfying tool worth snagging is the Personal Microderm Elite Pro, which is basically a high-powered pore vacuum. This powerful tool combines patented spinning disc technology and precision vacuum suction for professional-grade microdermabrasion. Say goodbye to fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness with customizable discs for all skin types. Dermatologist-recommended and easy to use, it transforms your home into a spa-like haven.

One part powerful cleanser, one part loofah, the PMD Clean Body is the ultimate shower companion. It comes with three interchangeable attachments to cleanse, exfoliate, and massage your bod during bathtime: a relaxing massager, a loofah, and a polish exfoliator for an all-over clean.

PMD Gua Sha RQ — $45.00

Inspired by traditional Chinese gua sha tools, this gorgeous sculpting stone massages and lifts the face and body. Pair it with a face or body oil to get it to glide—the stone’s curves and edges will promote lymphatic drainage and circulation, reduce tension, and smooth and tighten skin. Bonus: the ergonomic handle allows for easy handling.
