Can I get microdermabrasion if I have a cut on my face?

I have a deep pimple that I tried to squeeze, now it's a cut and the pimple is still under my skin

Wait for active spots to heal

You should wait for your skin to heal before you proceed with microdermabrasion to avoid any further complications such as hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation and inflammations. Best of luck!

Thanks for your query. You should wait for the cut to heal and thereafter get the treatment. Dermabrasion on the cut skin will further deepen it and can give post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Hope it helps.
