Microdermabrasion not the best choice for Deep scars nyc new york ny

While microdermabrasion features little downtime and is readily available, it will not unfortunately give you the best results if you have deep scars.

Deep scarring implies injury to the deeper layers of skin- layers that microdermabrasion do not address.

Full Dermabrasion is better for scarring that is raised and needs to be evened out or for deep scars that have the ability to form new collagen and "fill out" the scar.

Lasers can also be used for some forms of scarring and would yield better results than microdermabrasion.

If the scars are really deep or "ice pick" scars, then a filler using collagen or hyaluronic acids could be used to "plump up" the scar, making it blend in better with the surrounding skin.

Lastly some deep scars can be revised with minor surgery - this will depend on scar location, size, texture, etc.

Best thing to do is to sit down with a Board certified and experienced Physician who can examine your scars and go over all the best options that apply to your case.

Microdermabrasion is great for maintaining healthy skin but not so great at deep scar removal
