Microdermabrasion side effects
Other side effects
can be quite stressful on certain skin types and side effects can include the following:
Especially around the eye area where the skin is quite thin.
Cold sore reactivation: If you're prone to coldsore outbreaks these can be stimulated.
Redness: Skin may be more sensitive than usual.
Bleeding: You may have spots of bleeding following treatment.
Not everyone experiences these side effects, but it's worth knowing that a session of microdermabrasion might need to be followed by a quiet night in make-up free to give your skin time to adapt. And maybe postpone your date night for a few days - just in case!
Julie Coates from celebrity haunt, The Lanes Health and Beauty Clinic
says: "Side effects are temporary and will subside after 72 hours."
