Microdermabrasion is an excellent way to take care of dull, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles and even out your complexion. This type of exfoliation works by removing the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal smoother, brighter skin beneath. Regular microdermabrasion sessions can help reveal a more youthful appearance, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even out skin tone for a more even appearance.
However, you will need to do microdermabrasion sessions regularly in order for it to have the most optimal effect. Microdermabrasion needs to be done semi-frequently in order to gain the most benefits from it. There’s no real set schedule as it depends on factors such as your age, skin type and other individual factors that determine how often you should do microdermabrasion. However, here are some general guidelines on how often you should have microdermabrasion treatments.
How often should you do microdermabrasion?
If you have sensitive skin, you should do microdermabrasion once every month. If your skin is not sensitive and you want to exfoliate more frequently, you can do microdermabrasion several times per month. For people with rosacea, you will need to reduce the frequency of microdermabrasion due to it being too harsh on the delicate skin of rosacea sufferers.
What type of skin should you microdermabrasion?
If you have sensitive skin that is dry, it may be best to do microdermabrasion once every several weeks or longer. If you have normal skin, you should begin with doing microdermabrasion every month. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, microdermabrasion can be done more frequently.
Is microdermabrasion safe?
Microdermabrasion is not considered to be safe for people with eczema, rosacea or psoriasis. In fact, it’s important to note that microdermabrasion should not be performed on open sores or wounds and it should not be used on infants or small children due to the risk of injury. It’s also important that you don’t have any active skin conditions when you do microdermabrasion as this could lead to complications.
