I have black skin, Class V. I also have pressure urticaria,i.e. when pressure is placed on my skin I can get welts or bumps. My husband's stubble can cause a rash on my face and neck.
My Question: Is Microdermabrasion Safe for my Skin Type?
Doctor Answers 1
Alternatively, depending on your cosmetic concerns, you may want to consider a light chemical peel. Many light chemical peels are safe for patients with type V skin, and will also provide many of the same benefits as microdermabrasion without applying any significant pressure to the skin.
