However, not everyone is a candidate for microdermabrasion treatments. If you have active or open acne lesions (such as pustules), it is best advised for you to wait until these lesions heal. If you have rosacea and your skin is inflamed, you are currently not a candidate. If you’re pregnant and have what is is referred to as pregnancy mask (hyperpigmentation),  it is best that you wait to have microdermabrasion treatments at least six months after you give birth. If you have Herpes Simples I and II, microdermabrasion can cause an outbreak of this pre-existing condition. For HIV and AIDS patients, this treatments in contraindicated, because the skin is thinned, and can cause lesions due to a compromised immune system. Lastly, if you have diabetes, you are also not a good candidate, because the skin of individuals with diabetes is extremely compromised by the many medications they must take.
