15 Microdermabrasion Before and After Pictures that are Utterly Shocking

Who isn’t a fan of before and after pictures? When you’re talking about a certain beauty product or procedure, it’s always “pics or it didn’t happen,” when it comes to convincing the masses.

Microdermabrasion is no exception to this trend as well. One of the reasons why many people would rather go under the wand instead of under the knife is because it works better than a fairy godmother. Here are some microdermabrasion before and after transitions to prove that point.

Acne scars and discoloration are some of the worst things that could happen on your face. Through microdermabrasion, these scars lighten and return the skin to its original form. This is through a certain effect after the procedure wherein the body is prompted to produce more melanin for the skin.

Because microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells from the surface, the body gets a light reminder to replace these cells and repair the damages left by acne, including any discolorations left by these instances.

In some cases, microdermabrasion can also fully restore the skin to the way it used to look as shown here. With continued sessions and daily care, your acne scars (and even currently existing acne) will disappear with just a few sessions, just like what happened with these dermabrasion before and after pictures.

large pimples treated


Even those really cases with large pimples that stand apart from each other such as the example above. Because the procedure scrubs the whole face and other parts of the body, it doesn’t matter where the scars and the pimples are located. Microdermabrasion will take of these blemishes.

big boils case


One of the best things about microdermabrasion is that it can also be used to treat advanced cases of boils such as this.

A boil as big as the ones in these before and after microdermabrasion shots can surely force anyone to stay at home all the time until they recover.

Besides medical and invasive treatments, Microdermabrasion can work as a supplementary form of skin care that only works on the exterior of the skin without tinkering with any previously-done medical procedures. As you can see, there is a large difference in the visibility of the boil as seen in the before picture.

There are some people that might have had acne problems for the longest time, without receiving any special form of skin care. In such a case, it’s not just the external surface of the skin that becomes affected.

uneven texture problem


Even the overall quality of the skin becomes jeopardized such as the example above. The skin is no longer smooth and an uneven texture becomes very obvious even in pictures.

Microdermabrasion can also help reduce the effects of long-term scarring by prompting the body to release more collagen and materials to fix the damages that have been caused by years of picking and improper care, as like what happened in these microdermabrasion before and after photos.

Of course, acne isn’t the only problem that microdermabrasion can solve. Blackheads are another thing. They’re just as unsightly and even harder to remove, especially around the nose as seen in these microdermabrasion before and after pictures.

bacteria surface


Because these clumps of dirt and bacteria are seated on the surface of the skin, a simple session can immediately deal with these bad boys. Since the procedure only affects the outermost layer of the skin, blackheads surely get the rubbing as well.

On top of that, regular sessions can prevent these growths because you’re giving your pores a good cleaning every now and then. There’s no space for blackheads to grow!

On top of acne and blackheads, wrinkles are another thing you don’t want on your face, no matter how old you are.

sagging skin treatment


One limitation of microdermabrasion is that it can’t tinker with the deeper layers of the skin. Sadly, this is where wrinkles come from. Due to ageing and other factors, our skin loses elasticity over time, causing sagging and signs of age.

Although microdermabrasion does not fully get rid of wrinkles, it most certainly helps ease the visibility of these lines and sags.

Despite the presence of wrinkles in the photos, Microdermabrasion helps make them less obvious by forcing out a more youthful glow from the skin.

What you have above is a serious case of acne, such as in these microdermabrasion for acne scars before and after pictures.

face damage area


It’s no longer the work of mere dirt and oil. This is caused by bacteria that have grown within the skin, messing up your hormones and glands, causing really big and hyper-pigmented growths on the surface of the skin.

Microdermabrasion still works in this case by clearing out the surface of any germs and bacteria that might have been missed by other forms of cleaning. If taken with antibiotics that kill the bacteria inside the skin, Microdermabrasion will take care of the damage that has been done outside.

Microdermabrasion isn’t just for the immediate area of the face. It can also be done on other areas of the upper extremities such as the neck. In the photo above, it is visible that acne has also formed at the upper areas of the neck.

cheek and neck area


Because the procedure can be done anywhere, you are assured that microdermabrasion will target imperfections in various areas of the body.

The best part about this is that you don’t need to visit different clinics for different parts of the body! When you take a closer look at these microdermabrasion before and after pictures, you can understand.

acne on backside


As mentioned earlier, microdermabrasion isn’t just for the face. It’s also for other parts of the body. The funny thing about this is that acne also isn’t just for the face. In some cases, it can also find its way on your backside.

Although the skin on your back is much different from facial skin, the only difference it makes to microdermabrasion is the number of sessions necessary to see visible differences. As long as there is continued care of the skin and regular visits to your clinic, back acne is no problem for microdermabrasion.

lighten stretch marks


Same with wrinkles, stretch marks are another thing that comes from the deeper layers of the skin. Despite that, microdermabrasion is still a good maintenance tool to keep those marks in check.

Despite not being able to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, microdermabrasion will help lighten the color of the skin in these areas to make them less obvious. With several sessions and other complementary methods, your stretch marks could also be a thing of the past.

acne scars problem


As noticed in these microdermabrasion acne scars before and after pictures, the sporadic appearance of pimples on this patient has caused a large disparity in the evenness of her facial texture. The concentration of these appearances is near her ears and her cheekbones.

With microdermabrasion, everything from the pus, the swelling, the discoloration and the texture all goes away, leaving a smooth finish that looks like it’s been cared of for years.

You will also notice a more uniform glow and color from the skin that results from the total coverage of the procedure. Microdermabrasion doesn’t miss a spot.

Here, you have a combination of wrinkles and acne scarring over the years. The scarring has left uneven surfaces on the face of the patient. On top of that, you will also notice the wrinkles that have accompanied the folds created by these acne scars.

face pores problem


Let’s not forget the condition of the pores in these microdermabrasion before and after pores pictures.

When going through microdermabrasion, it doesn’t matter if you’re just suffering from blackheads, acne or a combination of all sorts of blemishes on the skin. Whatever it is, cleaning out your pores and removing dead skin cells and dirt through microdermabrasion will take care of these issues

Microdermabrasion isn’t just for the face and back. It can also be used on the arms. Although these are the first to get the scrubbing during a bath, that doesn’t get rid of the dead skin cells that lay on the surface of the face.

Take note that there are dead skin cells over every surface of the skin, no matter how covered or exposed it is during the day. When put through Microdermabrasion, you can bring about a more youthful glow and restore some lost time after a few sessions.

lip wrinkles treatment


Microdermabrasion even works on sensitive areas that you don’t usually scrub when you wash the face. Those areas include the thin layer of skin near the eyes and the lips. Usually, these are where you see your first wrinkles because of their thinner composition.

With microdermabrasion, you can knock off a few years over those areas and betray your real age by making these wrinkles less obvious in pictures. You’ll notice less lines and a more youthful appearance in the after pictures compared to the before photo.

Here’s something you don’t see everyday. Acne scars, wrinkles and uneven skin tones all in one patient. What’s shocking about this picture is the fact that the results of the microdermabrasion session came a few days only after one session!

That’s the best thing about microdermabrasion. On top of it being non-invasive and pain free, you can immediately see results even after one session! This is because your body immediately responds to the procedure by replenishing the dead skin cells that the magic wand removes.

You have nothing to lose from microdermabrasion and the world to gain in benefits. Results can be felt immediately after the first session and you won’t have to wait for your skin to heal after each session. If these pictures can’t prove it, probably nothing else will.
