As far as the "real" microdermabrasion goes...I dreaded going because I thought it was going to hurt a lot. Don't get me wrong, it is not something you'd do for fun but I believe in it. I am definitely going back! I am seeing a big difference.
Hope I didn't ramble too much. Let me know if I can help any more.

And regular, old-fashioned dermabrasion.....that is the scariest stuff I have ever read about! Taking a high-speed brush and taking off layers of skin??!! No thanks!

fast forward 2 months and i'm so unhappy with the unveiling i could just DIE! the scarring is worse and deeper than before. So now this guy wants me to do collagen treatments at $300.00 dollars a whack!! i had at least 6 months of treatments (to give him benefit of doubt) and nothing!!! let me also state that my insurance didn't cover any of these procedures including the office visits. The surgery itself cost me approx 10K, then if you add in the collagen treatments at $300.00 a whack usually 2 shots a visits it killed me financially!!! would i recommend it HELL NO!!!
Ok, so that was 10+ years ago... maybe its better, i don't know, nor do i have the cash to find out. But please be careful and thoughorlly investigate all options and at least 3 different opinions....which i may also add that i did not do. My mistake. Good luck!! My scars are still here and i would do anything to remove them, but financially i can't take the risk not to mention, emotionally.

That sounds like you had Dermabrasion. Dermabrasion is whole lot more aggressive. Microdermabrasion I don't think has been around for 10 years. I do hope things get much better for you.

Here's where I go it

I was really excited the first time I got my microdermabrasion cloth and I guess I put to much pressure when washing my face and ended up what looked like some rug burns on my face. I'm very careful now and my face looks better than ever.

I just looked at the Addicted to Beauty web-site and was kind of intrigued by the Microdermabrasion Creme. Does anybody have any experience with this stuff?
Sounds a little too good to be true, IMO, and will this actually lead to results that I won't see with Retin-A or glycolic peels?

The "real" microdermabrasion is great for acne but it does nothing for red marks or scars. I posted somewhere else my results of the cloth and microdermabrasion cream. I used to use just the cream and it worked really well. As I said in the other post. I had a red spot that went away the first time I used it and face was REALLY smooth. the rest are more sutbborn but are fading better then anything else i've tried.
I use the cloth as a treatment every 10 days and the cream everyday for 15 seconds but if you want a really good treatment you can use the cream for a few minutes a few times a week. (I used to do that until I got the cloth) I dont know if I am doing tot much but it seems to be working for me...So why not
