Derma wand
I have been trying dermawand for a few weeks and am concerned about the smell. it doesn' t smell like oxygen to me, and i' m wondering what it is and if it is harmful. I am already chemically sensitive and find the smell a bit offensive.

Hi Rosie, thank you for the question.

Unfortunately, the Dermawand webpage does not explain the technology used to achieve the effects that they claim or if a ‘smell’ is normal during treatment. Furthermore, there are no studies listed, to verify that this product works. An independent webpage, rates the effect of the Dermawand at around 5 out of 10. Further reviews were found on and interestingly 70% of the users rated this product 4 out of 5, while the rest rated the Dermawand at 1 out of 5 (further mixed reviews can be found at

Following from the above and that I personally do not think that a ‘smell’ is normal (the device may be faulty) I would stop using it and take it back to your supplier.
