After the procedure, use sunscreen. This will help ensure the best results and reduce the risk of side effects. Microdermabrasion may not be suitable for people who scar easily or who have outbreaks of cold sores. Dermabrasion was developed to improve acne scars, smallpox marks, and scars caused by accidents or diseases.
It is not effective for treating congenital skin defects, most moles, pigmented birthmarks, or scars caused by burns. It's not that we want to turn anyone away, but microdermabrasion isn't right for everyone. Microdermabrasion is not designed to treat major scars, deep wrinkles, facial warts, or saggy skin. Anyone with uncontrolled diabetes or undiagnosed facial injuries is not a good candidate.
Pregnant women should also avoid treatment.
