You’ve probably heard that microdermabrasions are ripe with benefits like brighter complexion, reduced appearance of fine lines and dark spots, even skin tone, and reduced pore size. But what are the risks to this noninvasive cosmetic procedure?
Microdermabrasion treatments remove the thicker outer layer of the skin through the use of a minimally abrasive sanding instrument leading to skin rejuvenation. For a few days after this exfoliating treatment, a person may notice minor side effects to the skin such as swelling, redness, or sensitivity to sunlight. Risk of complications increases for anyone with keloids (thickened scars), those who have taken acne medication within the past 6 months, people who are susceptible to cold sores, or those who scar easily.
These risks can be reduced by wearing sunscreen and hydrating lotions post-treatment. We also encourage patients not to wear makeup after their microdermabrasion for the remainder of the day, as most makeup becomes unsterile after first use, and the skin is more vulnerable to impurities after treatment.
Overall, a microdermabrasion has minimal risks and is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types. It's time to give your skin the refresh it deserves!
