Microdermabrasion facial treatment may work wonders on all skin types, leaving new, smooth skin on the surface. As a result, your skin will feel and look healthier, helping you to regain skin confidence. But how safe is this treatment for sensitive skin? Here at Karma Beauty in Preston, we are microdermabrasion experts. Consequently, we have produced this guide to microdermabrasion for sensitive skin.


Microdermabrasion facial treatments are one of the safest facial treatments available. However, you can never be too careful when it comes to sensitive skin. As a result, to keep your comfort in mind, we would run a patch test first.

This initial patch test would help to establish your skins reaction to the treatment, before it is applied across your face. This means that you don’t have to worry about embarrassing facial reactions. You can rest assured that we would never treat your facial skin, if the patch test indicated a bad reaction.

After Treatment

Once the microdermabrasion treatment is complete, we would advise a soothing moisturizer to help to re-hydrate your skin. This is especially useful for people with sensitive skin, as replacing lost moisture will hep the skin recover.

In addition, it is also a good idea to stay out of the sun without protective cream, after treatment. This is because the newly revealed, fresher skin, can be more susceptible to damage from the suns rays. Definitely something to keep in mind now the weather in Preston has started to heat up!

When is this treatment not appropriate?

While most people with sensitive facial skin will respond well to microdermabrasion treatment, especially with the right aftercare, this treatment is not suitable for some people with particular skin conditions. This includes eczema and psoriasis.

In summary

Rejuvenating your skin and freshening up your look in time for summer is a great benefit of microdermabrasion facial treatment. If you have sensitive skin, don’t let this hold you back. Contact us today and discuss your individual needs with our experts.
