Problems after microdermabrasion

skintoit  |  visitor  |  North Carolina
I had microdermabrasion done on my face today and I am 52. My skin is very dry, but I have red streaks on my cheeks. One side looks like a bear claw streak it is so bad. What is this and how do I help this look better?

use local antibiotic cream ( maybe with cortisone in it )
don't expose to the sun !!
maybe per os antibiotics : go for a dermatologic consultation

try to avoid microdermabrasion ( poor results , often done by non medical persons )

Hello,
if your skin is red, hot and irritated, you can put an ice on it to reduce signs of inflammation. After the redness is gone,use a moisture. If it is longlasting You can use a biostimulating laser too.
