It is important to understand the limitations and limit expectations when it comes to microdermabrasion. Patients with somewhat minor skin conditions or imperfections and temper their expectations for what the procedure can and cannot do are the ideal candidates. This procedure is mild, non-invasive and cannot remedy all skin issues. The gentle spray of microcrystals in the procedure can eliminate or improve imperfections and conditions of the skin by removing the upper layer of dead and damaged skins to reveal fresh, new skin.
Treatment For Acne
Microdermabrasion can also be used to treat acne and acne scars, as it can eliminate or reduce the appearance of lighter scarring. But this is only for those with less serious scarring, as those with deeper acne scars may not get drastic results and should opt for dermabrasion instead. Active acne patients, though, can benefit from microdermabrasion, as it exfoliates the skin and can clear clogged pores of dirt and oil. It is important to consult with a dermatologist beforehand, as this treatment can also aggravate acne.
Rosacea is also a skin condition that can be treated by microdermabrasion. Rosacea is somewhat similar to acne, as it is a chronic inflammation of facial skin characterized by redness, prominent blood vessels, swelling ans skin eruptions.By opting for microdermabrasion, you can decrease the redness that is associated with this condition. But again, consult with a dermatologist before opting for this treatment to ensure no negative side effects will occur.
