What Does Microdermabrasion Help With?

Houston, TX

Microdermabrasion is a great way to achieve more attractive skin and overcome the damage done to the skin for a variety of reasons. By understanding what microdermabrasion helps with, you can make an informed decision as to whether or not the procedure is right for you.

Reasons to consider microdermabrasion

There are various different reasons why people choose microdermabrasion treatment. The procedure is non-invasive and works well to remove the thicker, less attractive outer layers of skin. The following are the four main reasons microdermabrasion patients choose to take advantage of the procedure:

Sun damage

Sun damage is a fairly broad term that can mean a lot of different things as it pertains to the health of your skin. Sun damage may include:

  • Discoloration of the skin
  • Sunburn
  • Fine lines
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne

In other words, the sun is not the skin’s best friend and the effects of increased sun exposure can be significant. Perhaps the best way to avoid sun damage is by taking the necessary precautionary measures when going outside, such as wearing sunscreen. However, microdermabrasion can be an effective way to treat sun damage after it occurs.

Stretch marks

Microdermabrasion can also be a successful way to treat stretch marks on the skin. Stretch marks can result from a variety of issues, and they are common among women who were recently pregnant or individuals who have recently experienced significant weight loss or weight gain.

Microdermabrasion works really well to treat and minimize the visibility of stretch marks on the body. By increasing and thickening the collagen in the skin, the lines created by stretch marks begin to diminish and eventually go away through a series of microdermabrasion treatment procedures.

Light scarring

Scarring can result from a number of situations, from recent surgery to the need for stitches following an accident. Scars can create a very displeasing appearance, and many have found success minimizing the appearance of their scars through microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion works by removing the outer layer of skin and increasing the thickness of the collagen in the skin, which in return replenishes the skin, providing a younger appearance and fixing various skin issues such as scarring. While microdermabrasion may not work for large scars, it is perhaps the best form of cosmetic treatment for light scarring.


One of the biggest uses of microdermabrasion is to fix discoloration of the skin. Skin discoloration can occur for a number of reasons and present itself in a variety of ways including, age spots, blackheads, sunburn and the result of a scar. In these instances, microdermabrasion can work wonders in restoring the natural appearance of one’s skin.

However, one of the most common reasons for discoloration of the skin occurs due to what is known as hyperpigmentation, which results in patches of dark skin on various parts of the body. Microdermabrasion is often the most recommended form of treatment for hyperpigmentation.
