4 Great Benefits of Opting for a Microdermabrasion Acne Treatment

Do you suffer from acne? Here is everything you need to know about how a customized microdermabrasion skin treatment can help rejuvenate your skin and give you the clear complexion you’ve always wanted!

Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion is a skin treatment that uses a diamond tip wand to gently exfoliate the skin and draw out any debris and impurities. This skin rejuvenation procedure uses no chemicals, is non-invasive, and works to remove the dry and dead outer layer of your skin to reveal fresh and healthy skin underneath. 

It can be used to address a number of skin concerns, including: 

  • Acne and acne scarring 
  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation 
  • Uneven skin texture 

Whatever your aesthetic concerns, our skin specialists can examine your aesthetic goals, skin type, and medical history during a consultation to determine which skin treatment is right for you.

Top Benefits of a Microdermabrasion Treatment for Acne 

Microdermabrasion can be an effective cosmetic treatment for those suffering from mild acne breakouts. The exfoliation treatment minimizes the appearance of whiteheads and blackheads, creating a smoother look on the skin’s surface. It can also work to diminish the shallow scarring that acne breakouts often leave behind.

Some of the benefits of opting for a microdermabrasion skin treatment to address your acne include: 

  1. It’s quick and easy. A microdermabrasion is often described as a ‘lunchtime’ procedure, as the treatment only takes up to 60 minutes. In addition to this, there is no downtime nor discomfort, which means you can get back to regular activities almost immediately. 

  2. It has benefits beyond treating acne. Apart from helping you achieve a clearer complexion, microdermabrasion can also address other aesthetic concerns while treating your acne, including wrinkle lines, frown lines, age spots, and other skin abnormalities. 

  3. It will soften acne scars. Microdermabrasion is an innovative skin treatment that helps your skin produce more collagen and elastin. Thanks to this, you will notice that any scarring you may have due to acne will lighten significantly. 

  4. Can help prevent future breakouts. The exfoliation process provided by microdermabrasion can remove debris, dead skin cells, and excess oils from the skin’s surface, which reduces pore clogs. This can help to prevent future breakouts, leading to clearer skin in the long run. 

Microdermabrasion for Acne: Things to Keep in Mind 

Microdermabrasion can help release collagen and elastin, which will make your skin healthier and more youthful. It also has the added side effect of helping your skin become more receptive to any topical acne treatments you are using. 

However, there are a few things you should keep in mind about using microdermabrasion for acne: 

  1. It works best on mild acne. If you have moderate to severe acne in some parts of your face, then your specialist may suggest that it’s better to treat it with traditional topical creams and/or antibiotics. 

  2. Don’t use microdermabrasion for active acne. Using microdermabrasion when you have active acne can burst those spots, making your acne worse, increase your healing time, and put you at risk of further infection. 

  3. Don’t expect a quick fix. Microdermabrasion can cause some stress on your skin cells, so your acne may look temporarily worse before getting better. Be patient and you will get the results you want. 

  4. Clean your face before the treatment. It’s a good idea to clean your face before your microdermabrasion treatment, as this will help get rid of any dirt or grime under the skin and get it ready to be exfoliated. 

  5. Tell your skin specialist about any skin issues. If you have particularly sensitive skin, or you’ve just had a lot of sun exposure recently, let your skin specialist know beforehand. Also let them know if you are on any other treatments for your acne.
