Question: I would like microdermabrasion to treat my facial acne scars and wrinkles on my cheeks. I have read that it will also remove sun spots which is wonderful. What is the recovery time for microdermabrasion? Are there any complications associated with this procedure?
Answer: There is no downtime associated with microdermabrasion as it simply exfoliates the superficial layer of the skin and essentially polishes the skin. This can certainly help with some minor pigmentation issues but more importantly it will allow skin care products to work more effectively that can significantly improve sun spots. There really are no complications associated with microdermabrasion when it is performed in experienced hands.
