You may feel inundated with information about microdermabrasion at this point, so just to let you know, this is the last part of this series. We’d be remiss to leave you with all of that knowledge from Parts 1 & 2, though, without letting you know if it’s right for you.


Microdermabrasion works on a variety of skin problems. If you have any of the following conditions, microdermabrasion is probably a good choice for you:


  • Fine Lines: Microdermabrasion helps to soften and sometimes entirely erase fine lines, especially over multiple appointments.
  • Dark Spots: The resurfacing process helps lighten dark spots.
  • Dry Skin: Microdermabrasion’s unique abrading removes all dead surface skin cells, revealing glowing, bright skin underneath.
  • Acne scars: The process can help “shallow” or even out acne scars, helping to recude their appearance.
  • Large pores: Microdermabrasion can help minimize pore size and is a fantastic way to unclog your pores.
  • Skin Treatments: Microdermabrasion can increase the absorption of serums, moisturizers and other skin treatments by up to 50%. Be careful, though; not all skin treatments may be micro-compatible. Check with your doctor to make sure yours is before making your appointment for microdermabrasion.
  • Lackluster skin: Microdermabrasion stimulates blood flow to the facial area, encouraging the growth of new skin cells and increasing skin elasticity and vibrancy.


With that list, it sure seems like microdermabrasion is great for everybody! Not so fast, though…some people shouldn’t get microdermabrasion because of its benefits. If you have:


  • Rosacea
  • Eczema
  • Dermatitis
  • Active Sunburn
  • Herpes
  • Lupus
  • Open Sores
  • Psoriasis
  • Widespread Acne
  • Couperose Skin


Then microdermabrasion may not be right for you. Check with your doctor to determine whether or  not micro is a safe treatment for you.
