Facial scarring can be more difficult than having a scar on any other part of the body because our face is always front and center. If something is on your face, you feel like everyone is staring at it instead of you. Whether your scarring is from acne, injury, or another medical condition, finding a way to improve the appearance of those facial scars has no doubt crossed your mind. Microdermabrasion is a simple, non-invasive treatment that has been clinically shown to improve the appearance of minor facial scars.
What does microdermabrasion do?
Microdermabrasion removes dead, dull skin and dirt from the outer layer of the face. This improves blood circulation and encourages new collagen production. That new collagen restructures the skin surface and reduces the appearance of minor scarring. In addition to improving the appearance of scars, microdermabrasion can also:
- Improve the appearance of age spots
- Even tone and texture
- Brighten and rejuvenate skin
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Make pores appear smaller
