Pigmented Naevi refers to moles or birthmarks, and treating these areas with micro-dermabrasion can cause bleeding or scarring. Varicose veins are swollen, twisted veins that are not suitable for micro-dermabrasion as it can worsen the condition. Recent collagen or botox injections can be contraindications because the skin needs time to heal after these procedures. Spider Naevi are small, dilated blood vessels that should not be treated with micro-dermabrasion. Fine lines and wrinkles, dry skin, headache, and comedones (clogged pores) are not contra indications for micro-dermabrasion.

    Corneum
    Explanation
    Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that exfoliates and removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, revealing a smoother and brighter complexion. The outermost layer of the skin is called the stratum corneum, which is composed of dead skin cells. Therefore, microdermabrasion removes a percentage of the stratum corneum, helping to improve the overall appearance and texture of the skin.
