Consult your physician
Microdermabrasion is gentle and non-invasive method of removing the surface layer of the skin and it should not represent a problem if your skin is capable of restoration. It is not recommended to keratosis sufferers, active rosacea, active acne, diabetes, auto-immune disorders, fragile capillaries, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis or lupus. You should consult with your physician before committing yourself to microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion is an extremely superficial procedure and you should have no problem getting it done
