The specific benefits of microdermabrasion for each of the above skin conditions is discussed below

Microdermabrasion acne benefits

The benefits of microdermabrasion acne treatment are well established. Thousands of young adults have seen great improvements to their acne through undergoing facial microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion benefits acne sufferers because by exfoliating the top layer of skin, pores become unclogged. This prevents bacteria from being trapped under the skin surface which leads to acne in the first place. Also, microdermabrasion crystals have anti-bacterial properties which kill many acne causing bacteria.

Microdermabrasion acne scar benefits


Among the benefits of microdermabrasion peels are a significant reduction in acne scars. A series of microdermabrasion treatments causes the skin to regenerate it’s outer layer several times leading to improved skin texture and reduction of acne scars. Deep acne scars, however, are not eliminated unless medical grade microdermabrasion machines are used.

Microdermabrasion stretch mark benefits

Microdermabrasion has many benefits for improving stretch marks, especially when used as part of a comprehensive treatment. Microdermabrasion stimulates the skin to produce a fresh new outer layer of skin reducing the visibility of stretch marks. Microdermabrasion also helps to improve the effectiveness of stretch mark creams by allowing them to penetrate deeper layers of skin.

Microdermabrasion wrinkle benefits

Fine lines & wrinkles are a result of decreased levels of collagen and elastin in the skin as we get older. The benefit of microdermabrasion for treating wrinkles is that it stimulates the production of collagen, which is the building block of skin, and elastin which makes skin able to stretch without losing its shape.

Microdermabrasion dull skin benefits

Both crystal and diamond microdermabrasion involve suction. The benefit of suction on the skin in microdermabrasion is that this increases blood circulation to the skin. This results in an instantly improved complexion and a healthy glow.

Benefits of microdermabrasion treatment

There are four main benefits that make microdermabrasion an appealing treatment:

  • Comfort
  • Time
  • Cost
  • Safety

Microdermabrasion is painless and needs no anaesthesia. The benefit of this is that as soon as the treatment is finished a patient is able to continue with their daily activities.

A typical microdermabrasion session lasts about 30 minutes. This is of benefit to people who want improved skin without having to commit much time to it.

The costs of microdermabrasion are comparatively less than other procedures to treat the same conditions.

Another important benefit of microdermabrasion is that it poses very little risk to the patient. Side effects are rare, and when they do occur they are only temporary.

Overall benefits of microdermabrasion

The amount of benefit derived from microdermabrasion depends on various factors:

  • Number of treatments
  • Extent of skin condition
  • Type of equipment used
  • Training of treatment provider

Most microdermabrasion patients commit to a series of between 4-12 treatments. The more microdermabrasion treatments you receive, the more benefits you will see. However, there is a point beyond which microdermabrasion will not be effective regardless of how many treatments are given. This includes deep scars and severe pustular acne in which case professional consultation should be sought for alternative treatments.

Although microdermabrasion equipment is important in ensuring that benefits accrue from treatment, the training of the microdermabrasion provider is most important. Always make sure your microdermabrasion provider is qualified to use the specific microdermabrasion machine that they have.
