Does Microdermabrasion Work To Get Rid Of Superficial Skin Markings
Microdermabrasion: Microderm by nature only gets into the epidermis of the skin (and usually only a few microns deep). The primary effect is to give the skin a more healthy glow by deeply exfoliating the surface.

What are the best rejuvenation skin care treatments for spider veins? I have noticeable spider veins on my legs and would feel more comfortable wearing summer clothes if I could get rid of them. Do rejuvenation skin care treatments like microdermabrasion
Spider: Spider veins are visible veins in the skin, most often occuring on the legs. What are termed "spider veins" are usually flat red or blue fine lines. However, these can bulge above the skin and can cause pain, itching or bleeding, but most are cosmetic concerns. Skin treatments alone are usually not effective for spider vein removal and potentially could make them slightly worse if the skin is injured or traumatized. Depending on the size of the spider veins these can be very effectively treated with injections (medium and small veins) or with laser (small veins). Once veins are treated they go away, but new ones can form over time. Bruising and discoloration are common after any vein treatment, and are worse for larger veins. I would suggest that any procedures done for spider veins be done several months before you want to wear summer clothes! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I want to get rid of deep acne scars. Do I need Microdermabrasion, Chemical peels or laser therapy? I have tried pills from dr & creams even blue light
Professional help: I am sorry you tried worthless cures, and if someone charged you money for "blue light" therapy, I would urge you to contact your local prosecuting attorney. Pills and creams won't touch these. You'll need to get with a specialist dermatologist or plastic surgeon for a filler, microsurgery, or laser work.

Is microdermabrasion safe for skin with rosacea? I have some rosacea on my face – will microdermabrasion help with this or make it worse? .
As long as $$$ lasts: Microdermabrasion removes only the topmost dead layers of your skin, so no healing is involved, and your skin feels as smooth as baby skin for a short period until the next layer of living cells "push" the dead topmost layers to the surface again! You can actually microdermabrade too much if you remove tissues to the living, bleeding cells so that healing is required (like "regular" dermabrasion). ...Read more
