Microdermabrasion for Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation
When Microdermabrasion for Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation is used, the exfoliating crystals can abrade away any superficial pigmentation on the epidermis for a more even skin tone. Microdermabrasion is a progressive treatment, so you will achieve better results if you commit to a course of treatment. As you advance through the course, deeper pigmentation can gradually be brought to the surface of the skin. Then, it can be exfoliated away for a clearer complexion. The effectiveness of Microdermabrasion for Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation depends on the depth of the pigmentation, as some types of pigmentation can be trickier to treat than others.
Benefits of MD for Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation
Microdermabrasion for Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation has a number of benefits, making it the ideal option for skin rejuvenation.
(1) Pigmentation Reduction
As an intense exfoliation treatment, Microdermabrasion can significantly lighten the appearance of Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation, for a more even-toned complexion.
(2) Smoother Texture
The exfoliation process is also beneficial as any rough skin texture, fine lines, or scars can be smoothed for a fresh appearance. As PIH often results from another skin condition, such as acne, this is a great benefit for an all over rejuvenation.
(3) More Youthful Appearance
Regular Microdermabrasion treatments will help to minimise the appearance of pigmentation, for a more youthful appearance. The exfoliation is also useful for refining enlarged pores, further contributing to a more youthful-looking complexion.
(4) No Downtime
Microdermabrasion is non-surgical, and non-invasive, requiring no downtime post-treatment. Nicknamed “the lunchtime facial” due to its convenience, you can easily treat your Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation and get right back to your day.
(5) Enhanced Collagen Production
Microdermabrasion for Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation is also beneficial for collagen production. The dual action approach of exfoliation and a vacuum stimulates collagen and elastin production. Therefore, improving the overall elasticity and firmness of the skin.
