I bought the product and got used to the shocking it does like one of those shocking lighter gag gifts. I never saw any results of younger looking skin but i developed a bad rash all over my face that I can't get rid of I have now quit using the product and I still can't get rid of the bumps on my face from it.
I bought mine yesterday after reading the reviews in makeupalley. I loved the results even on day one. I have great skin anyway. Even at my age of 38 I look 28. Except that I had a little problem with dark circles under my eyes. This wand seems to be working fantastically and has reduced my dark circles by about 20%. But it is still too early to tell.
I should wait and watch how it goes from here.
Now it is around a month since I have had the DW and i feel except for the first few days, it does not deliver results on a long term...not much difference now.
I've had my original Dermawand about 10 years and when the new one was on ShopNBC earlier this month (May 2011) I decided to purchase it. The new version is hot pink so it's very girly.
This little gadget really does help increase circulation, which in turn nourishes the skin cells and muscles for firmer skin with healthy color and tone. Like anything, success relies on consistent practice so I do my best to use it every morning and night for 3-5 minutes....if I miss a morning, I do a little longer session in the evening.

I have had a DermaWand for 5 years, I truly see the difference!
I find the more I use it the better I look, Its much like exercising the face!
Try it on a pimple too & see what happens
Thanks Sally 254
I bought mine about 12 years ago in Canada. This was back when they were advertising it as a great treatment for acne and wrinkles. I have always suffered from acne and this has been a god send for me. I use it on pimples and it always shrinks them and clears them up much faster than anything I have ever tried, and I have tried everything. I can't say that it works on wrinkles etc. I don't use it on a daily basis all over the face. But, I KNOW it does clear the skin. That's how they should advertise this product.
Man, when it comes to these type of miracle devices… thank goodness it's a lot easier to find out the science behind these things than it used to be. I bought mine about 8 years ago, convinced by the excitement and reviews. Turns out, this device has actually been around whole lot longer than that, and hasn't even changed or improved much to this day. Researching its features now, I'm relieved that I didn’t use mine for very long.
What effect does ozone have on the skin, and is it good? As other reviewers have mentioned, it’s actually pretty bad, and destructive to living tissue. No need to take anyone’s word, though. Please just look it up. Ozone air cleaners have also been loudly pulled off the market (RIP sharper image ionic breeze) in the last decade for the same reason.
Does patiently massaging a treatment into the skin, methodically every night, work? hell yes, it does. Lots of evidence to support that, too. You don’t need a special wand to do that, though.
It's okay. It does get rid of small lines, but if you use it too much, it can make your pores larger
I wouldnt suggest too much use of this on the face..but its great for the hands and feet
I think this is a good product and have been using it alternatively with the Nutritone hand held. I would prefer it if DW had a charger or a battery as I could use in bed much easier. I like controllling the zapping effect that I feel around eyes, face, neck depending on the intensity I use. I feel that my face is fresher and a bit tighter and my neck is a little more defiend - I'll keep at it, can't do any harm. I have just dscovered some Agan Oil that I had in back of mya maekup stash - so I will be using this as the conductor for a while. I bought this for $49 with free s/h on HSN - now sold out.
I bought this product for $60 CAD at the As Seen on TV store where it was on clearance because it was missing one of the bottles of cream.
I've never used the Dermawand with it's supplied creams, I just use my own products. I mainly use it for clearing up acne and I have to say it works. I will wash my face, put on a toner, and dab some tea tree oil on the pimples and then use the Dermawand on the pimples for about 5 - 10 minutes. The pimples are usually smaller by the next morning if not gone.
I've noticed that it also makes my pores (around the cheek area) smaller.
I'm also using this around my eye area and on a deep neck wrinkle, which I will report back in a little while.
I remember in the late 90's Ivana Trump was selling this thing on what was then ValueVision (now ShopNBC). I didn't see it presented often, then they stopped selling it as it must have gone over like a lead balloon. Fast forward to 2009, I bought the Dermawand and I can see why it got booted off ValueVision. This device does absolutely nothing. All I got from it was an irritating tingle which left parts of my face red. I could not stand that ozone scent that lingered even after I finished using it. What a waste of time and money. I'm so surprised that things like this get on the air at HSN since they "claim" to have a very stringent legal department that supposedly doesn't allow outrageous claims. I'm also afraid of the accelerated oxidation that this product causes. I'm unsure of what all this extra oxygen will do to the skin in the long term. Aren't we supposed to be preventing oxidative damage to our skins? I remember reading some comments about this product on the internet years ago and many people complained that their skin actually looked worse after using the Dermawand. I don't know, but this device is not worth the time and possible damage. I guess they feel there's a sucker born every minute!
