Is Microdermabrasion Right for Your Skin?

Published on: December 28, 2017

If you are looking to improve the health and beauty of your skin, you may be wondering what cosmetic treatments might be right for you. There are so many options to choose from, including chemical peels, laser resurfacing, micro needling and more. One skin treatment that has excellent results for some skin flaws is microdermabrasion, but how do you know if this is the best option for your skin problems?

Scar Treatment and More

Microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells with the use of an extreme exfoliant. There are different types of microdermabrasion, often using specialized equipment that sloughs off old skin cells and triggers collagen and elastin production. Minimizing the appearance of scars is one of the top reasons people seek microdermabrasion, whether they have acne scars or have a new scar from a healing wound. Some other issues microdermabrasion can treat include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sunspots
  • Dull skin
  • Uneven skin tone or texture

Two options in microdermabrasion tools include a diamond-tip and crystal machine that both remove older skin cells. These can be paired with options that stimulate the skin to regrow new, healthy skin cells. This is very beneficial for scar treatment, especially new scars. It can reduce the scar tissue formed on the surface, keeping it as hidden as possible after the healing process.

Microdermabrasion can be effective for diminishing scars, brown spots and uneven tone in the skin, but it should only be performed by a skin professional. If you are interested in microdermabrasion to improve the beauty and health of your skin, find a dermatology clinic that offers this service to ensure you get safe and effective results.
