Can Plano area patients use microdermabrasion for acne?
Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell of DSA Dermatology in the Plano area are dermatologists who are excited to bring to their patients the technology they can use to improve the health and beauty of their skin. Our practice also offers devices which are best used for patients with certain conditions and are seeking a method of treating it along with their everyday skin care routine. For patients in Plano, many of them looking for treatment for acne are excited to learn about a procedure known as microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that uses small, exfoliating crystals sprayed onto the skin using a special device. Microdermabrasion may also include special serums which are also applied to the skin to treat skin defects and concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, and acne. This procedure can be done on all skin types and colors and can make subtle changes with no downtime or recovery. Most patients who have microdermabrasion done notice their skin may be slightly red for about 24 hours after their procedure, but this can also be easily disguised with cosmetics for the remainder of the day. Microdermabrasion does not require healing, surgery, or anesthetics.
Many patients use microdermabrasion for acne. They schedule regular visits with their dermatologist for treatments to use in-between their daily at-home skin care regimen which can be used to address this condition along with many others. Patients who want a more aggressive treatment may want to speak to Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell about other solutions such as dermabrasion which essentially “sands off” the upper layer of the skin to allow a fresh, smoother layer to develop and improve texture and tone. Both dermabrasion and microdermabrasion should be performed by a quality dermatological team with the experience and training necessary.
