Vibradermabrasion is considered more gentle and consistent and less traumatic to the skin than traditional microdermabrasion. I have never seen a single complication from vibraderm so I certainly would not expect scarring or pits - even in darker skin - when used correctly.

We have found Vibradermabrasion to be extremely safe and have not had problems such as pitting, scarring, or hyperpigmentation in patients with darker skin. Our Vibraderm machine uses a slightly abrasive paddle for non-surgical exfoliating treatments for dull or rough skin, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne and acne scarring. Vibradermabrasion accelerates the cellular turnover process and stimulates your skin to produce new collagen, bringing you closer to healthier, younger looking skin. It allows for the gradual resurfacing of skin without the risks, side effects and down-time of other, more aggressive alternatives.
