How to tell if you need Microdermabrasion

We discussed about Microdermabrasion on our previous article (Microdermabrasion: What to Expect at Your First Treatment). For those who haven’t read it, let me give you a brief run down

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure. It uses a hand-held device that gently exfoliates the superficial layer of the skin with the use of crystals or diamond tips and vacuums away the dead skin cells to reveal a healthier and younger looking skin. It works best with superficial acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, light scars and stretch marks, lightens skin pigmentations and as a pore minimizer. As a bonus, it also stimulates your system to produce more collagen on the treated area. It doesn’t work much (maybe possible for a lot more sessions but not guaranteed) for people with deep lines, wrinkles, and scars as well as dark brown pigmentations. The procedure is fast as it lasts only for half an hour, you can even do it during your lunch break. Not painful but for a tingling sensation during the treatment. Requires no downtime or recovery period as the procedure is non-surgical. Any effects such as a little redness and swelling will gradually fade over a short number of hours.

Having read this, you have probably looked in the mirror and asked yourself: Do I need to undergo microdermabrasion? This article will help you determine the answer to that.

When should you consider getting microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is considered a safe and risk-free procedure. It has no restrictions as to age and gender. Typically anyone can get microdermabrasion, but children younger than 12 and people older than 65 can only undergo the treatment under the supervision and care of a professional. Although there really is no age limit for this procedure, mature people over the age of 70 needs to be wary as their skin are very prone to bruises and skin abrasions. Those in the early stages of ageing, people from 35-50, have the best chances of seeing great results.

You should consider getting a microdermabrasion if your skin has these symptoms below.

  • If your skin is looking dull and sallow

  • If you have enlarged and clogged pores

  • If your skin has mild acne, light acne scars and acne discolorations

  • If your skin has superficial scars

  • If your skin has light stretchmarks

  • If your skin has fine lines and wrinkles

  • If your skin has age spots

  • If your skin has sun damaged blemishes

  • If your skin has light discolorations due to hyperpigmentation or melisma

  • If your skin has blackheads and whiteheads

On the other hand you should not get a microdermabrasion treatment if your skin has the following conditions:

  • Widespread acne

  • Active sunburns

  • Open sores

  • Eczema

  • Dermatitis

  • Rosacea

  • Psoriasis

  • Herpes
