Microdermabrasion will do nothing for your scars, I'm sorry to say. It's purely an aggressive exfoliation and does not penetrate to the depths of skin required to improve scarring.

Can you give us some more information about yourself? How long have you had the scars, what type are they, what concerns you the most etc? Also, do you have a skin care regime at the moment.

Know you're not alone in this.
