Side effects from microdermabrasion
The most common side effects are a bit of dryness, irritation and dehydration of the skin. Occasionally you can have an acne flare up. Very rarely an infection is possible. If performed at a medical clinic under medical supervision, using medical grade equipment, the likelihood of problems is quite remote. ~ Dr. Benjamin Barankin, Toronto Dermatology Centre.
