Age limit for microdermabrasion
Generally, we will not perform microdermabrasion under age 14. The main point is to determine which treatment you really need to treat your condition, and only a dermatologist can give you a fair and honest assessment. For instance, you may be better off with a chemical peel or a bleaching cream formulation rather than microdermabrasion, so do get a proper medical assessment from your dermatologist first. Unfortunately, some businesses are more than happy to take your money for microdermabrasion or any other treatment you ask for, even if you don't need it or wouldn't benefit from it since they are in the business of staying in business (making money).
