This article goes into the dangers of acne sufferers treating themselves with skin chemical peels and microdermabrasions. These treatments are bad enough even under the guidance of a doctor or dermatologist, let alone trying to DIY!
For centuries, people have been looking for the fountain of youth and many still are. But local doctors are seeing patients who are overdoing skin treatments for their face, causing not only pain but long-term skin damage.
Retin A, chemical peels and microdermabrasion are all things you’ll find prescribed or performed by a doctor or licensed medical professional. But when people try to treat themselves, they can run into trouble.
“We’ve had patients come in the day before their daughter’s wedding and done an at-home chemical peel and come in with second degree burns,” said Dr. Suzan Obagi, a dermatologist at UPMC Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Health Center.
Dr. Obagi says other patients have come in after too many skin treatments elsewhere.
This is just a classic example of the dangers of using such treatments when you do not know what you are doing. In addition it is also an example of what these treatments do to treat skin conditions. Why on earth do people opt for using such aggressive form of skin treatment when it can be treated 100% naturally? We would really love to hear your thoughts on this?
