I had read the glory of the dermawand equipment, and I bought one in May 2012. I could use it only for 3 months and for some obvious reason it stopped working. The local dealers, when contacted, said they could not find out what the trouble is and hence will replace it.
So I have lost faith in the durability of this equipment now.
My mom was the one who discovered and bought this beauty product more than 5 years ago. I'm actually a little taken back from the amount of low ratings. When I first used this, it was for my pimples. I wanted to tame them at their first stages before things get worst where the pore enlarges. It worked really well. I remember my first impression is being afraid to use it. It was foreign to me and I didn't know what kinds of side effect there were. But honestly, there isn't. Also, I remember and I still do hate that iron smell (due to the blood being surface to the skin) while using it. It sends mini electric waves through your skin to stimulate/increases blood circulation. Hence why they claim it oxygenates your skin - blood carries that oxygen to your skin's surface. As a beginner, you're suppose to start using the Dermawand at a low setting and gradually increase it until your skin is at a higher setting. During the use of Dermawand, I use my own serums / face masks / moisturizers. The Dermawand makes the absorption of skincare products better, easier and faster.
I think the price of a Dermawand is decent. I mean my Clarisonic Classic costs more than this.
Packaging wise, my mom broke the 1st Dermawand we had because the tip of it is made of glass. She dropped it and it didn't work so we bought another one. I guess I wish the glass was/is more durable.
Is it effective? Yes. Obviously results take longer to see compared to getting a procedure done by a cosmetics doctor. And if you don't regularly take good care of your skin, but expect a beauty instrument to miraculously fix everything for you, that just won't work.
Do not trust this company. they charged my credit card. I returned the product. They then turned me over to a collection agency for non-payment. I called the company and asked what my balance was and they said zero. They did not rectify the problem. They were rude and condescending. I am going to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. Beware!!!
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
