I have a dark brown tone by birth. If I get a microdermabrasion done will it help me to get a more lighter tone?
Microdermabrasion does not treat pigmentation unless due to excess keratin
Unless your pigmentation is due to hyperkeratosis ( callous, liver spots aka seborrheic keratoses for example), microdermabrasion, if performed properly, will not result in any improvement.
Microdermabrasion and Melarase creams
Microdermabrasion combined with Melarase creams can help improve skin tone and even out complexion problems on most skin types. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles
Very doubtful Microdermabrasion will help
Microdermabrasin is a very popular procedure usually done by aestheticians in a doctor's office. It can lighten some dark spots, but chances of it working or lasting are very small.
