Do know the immediate results
Microdermabrasion is great for immediate gratification for a smoother skin. It helps to exfoliate many dead dry skin layers to leave your skin smooth and able to accept serums and creams at a deeper level.
Do know that at-home scrubs cannot compare
Microdermabrasion gives a much deeper exfoliation that what you can achieve at home. At-home scrubs can not compare to microdermabrasion. They just scratch at the surface. Microdermabrasion takes off several dead skin layers by using a vacuum and spray of fine crystals to “sand off” the dead layers.
Do get it to help with acne scarring
Microdermabrasion is used to help with acne scarring. By doing several microdermabrasion treatments back to back, you can get off dead layers and promote new cell growth to help speed up the the recovery of your scars and help them disappear quicker.
Do get it to help with hyperpigmentation
Microdermabrasion helps with hyperpigmentation. By removing the top several layers of skin, it helps to lighten the outside dark surface quickly. You should be using an at-home skin lightener at the same time. These two things together help to lighten the surface and keep the melanin cells deep within the skin.
Do keep your blackheads at bay
Microdermabrasion can work wonders for removing blackheads. As you get that dead dry skin off the surface it allows your pores to push out the sebum, which is the oily secretion of your glands, so that it doesn’t get stuck under the skin. It also allows your products to work better on your skin by getting off the dead dry layers that keep the product on the surface.
Do not do it if you have rosacea
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes facial redness and sometimes pimples. Microdermabrasion works with a suction, which can cause more broken capillaries, and thereby worsening the condition.
Do not use microdermabrasion if you have naturally born sensitive skin
Microdermabrasion is a manual exfoliation which will irritate sensitive skin and make it red and inflamed. If you are unsure if your skin is naturally sensitive, consult with a dermatologist before getting microdermabrasion so that you don’t exacerbate any prior skin conditions.
Do not use it if you have thin skin
Thin skin should not be deeply exfoliated as there isn’t a thick enough barrier to handle the amount of layers the microdermabrasion removes.
Do not use microdermabrasion if you have active acne
Microdermabrasion could break your surface acne and cause it to spread bacteria to other pores. It could also cause inflammation and scarring. Acne should be in its healing phase and not active or red to receive microdermabrasion.
Do not get it in the summer months
Getting treatment in the summer could lead to your new skin becoming sun damaged and reverse the effects of the treatment. If you do decide to get microdermabrasion in the summer, be sure to protect your skin from the sun. Ask your treatment professional how to achieve the best results.
Microdermabrasion treatments are extremely popular and effective. As you can see, microdermabrasion is wonderful to help combat the signs of anti-aging, scarring, hyper-pigmentation, blackheads and achieves a smoother, brighter skin in just one treatment.
