microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that uses fine crystals or a diamond-tipped wand to gently exfoliate the top layer of skin. it is often used to improve the appearance of fine lines, uneven skin tone, and acne scars.
People who have skin discolouration due to sun exposure, aging, or hormonal changes may benefit from pigmentation treatment. It is important to consult with a dermatologist or other skin care professional before starting any treatment.
Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not undergo pigmentation treatment. Those with certain skin conditions, such as eczema or rosacea, may also not be suitable candidates for the procedure.
The specific procedure used for pigmentation treatment will depend on the type and severity of the skin discolouration. Topical creams may be applied daily to gradually lighten the skin. Chemical peels use a solution to remove the top layers of skin, revealing new, more evenly pigmented skin underneath. Laser treatments use the high-intensity light to target and remove pigment from the skin.
The recovery period for pigmentation treatment will depend on the specific procedure used. After a chemical peel, the skin may be red and sensitive for a few days to a week. Laser treatment may also cause redness and swelling, but these side effects should subside within a few days.
Pigmentation treatment may cause side effects such as redness, sensitivity, and swelling. In rare cases, scarring or changes in skin colour may occur. It is important to follow the instructions provided by your skin care professional to minimize the risk of complications.
