Microdermabrasion is considered a safe procedure for most skin types and colors. Hyperpigmentation, age spots and brown spots. The procedure is not invasive, but it can cause side effects. These include burning, stinging, and swelling, as well as increased sensitivity to sunlight.
Microdermabrasion is safe and effective for all skin types. The exfoliating crystals are very fine and do not harm the skin. Because microdermabrasion requires no incisions or anesthesia, there is no risk of scarring or infection. There is a risk that microdermabrasion could spread infections from one part of the skin to another.
Therefore, you should not undergo microdermabrasion if you have skin infections, such as impetigo, or if you have had warts, herpes, and other viral infections. Sometimes, it can make other conditions, such as rosacea, worse. Skin infections are also a rare but possible side effect. Skin infections after microdermabrasion occur when the part of the machine that comes into contact with the skin was not properly cleaned or when the crystals used are of poor quality or not properly handled.
For example, if a machine was used on a person with severe acne and wasn't properly cleaned, bacteria on their skin can transfer to yours and be a cause of infection. Both professional and household microdermabrasion machines have a two-step method that consists of exfoliating the skin by spraying small crystals or using a diamond tip and then using a suction system that sucks up dead skin cells and other debris from the face. You can reduce the risk of developing an infection by only going to professional and cleaning salons or by using your own microdermabrasion machine at home and making sure to clean it thoroughly after each use. However, before investing in your first home microdermabrasion machine, it's important to know what to expect from your first microdermabrasion sessions, what the side effects are, and how to manage them.
A home microdermabrasion machine is an ideal investment if you're interested in taking your skincare routine one step further, but don't want to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on regular facial treatments.
