Is Microdermabrasion Safe For All Skin Types?
A good friend of mine brought this common misconception to my attention...then answer is yes.
Microdermabrasion works on all skin types and colors. It has a subtle affect on the skin and will not cause pigmentation or scarring.
There is little to no downtime with Microdermabrasion and your skin completely heals within 24 hours.
Microdermabrasion contraindications include Keratosis, Undiagnosed Lesions, Active Rosacea, Acne Stages 3-4, Fragile Capillaries, Eczema, Dermatitis, Psoriasis or Lupus. Patients who have undergone recent laser treatments, are currently taking or have taken accutane in the past 6 months, are using Retinoids and other lightening agents may also need to get clearance for a Microdermabrasion treatment.
