Its been years since I had a microdermabrasion and i finally got one done yesterday, so far i dont see much difference but I know I will have to get at least 2 more done to see results . I do see my skin having a healthy glow and it looks alot smoother. I will be posting a before and after pics soon.

Oh and i forgot to mention Im back on Retin-A 0.01% gel and still using Aczone in the morning, also my derm has put me on Bactrim and that has helped me tremendously!!

Hi hope27, i just started getting micro-dermabrasions again, its been 8 years since i had one done lol but since i had some acne break outs that gave me scars i decided to do them again. I pay $80 for each one and will also be getting them done once a week, if i remember correctley when i did get micro-dermabrasions years ago i got them once a week too. Did u notice any difference after the first one? I just got smooth and glowing skin, i havent really noticed a difference with my acne scars yet but she did a light one this time and told me if it all goes well when i go back to see her she would do a medium and i wont see much improvement till my 3rd one. Keep me posted on your progress. I have an appointment for my 2nd one Monday June 3rd.smile.png

Two days after my3rd microdermabrasion i decided to apply my makeup and u can see a little dryness and some peeling of my skin but nothing too harsh and not very noticeable. The darker acne spots i had on the right corner of my chin has definetley lightened up and i had 2 dark colored age spots on my left cheek that have also lightened up, im so looking forward to my 4th round of the microdermabrasion....Ive taken some before pics and a few after my 2nd dermabrasion, im waiting to get the 4th one and will then be taking pics to show everyone the comparison. The acne scars i had on my left side of my chin are almost completely gone, my skin is a lot more smoother, its glowing and since having them done weekly ive noticed my acne has also calmed down. You have to get more than one done if you want to see any kind of improvement.

Recieved my 4th microdermabrasion this morning and again I did just fine :) This one was also done on a medium setting and she went a few times over any acne scars and age spots that were on my face, afterwards she did a aloe vera mask to calm down the pinkish color the microdermabrasion gave my skin, it was very relaxing, so now I will wait and see how my skin looks after its calmed down...Im seeing good results but not great, i do see a big improvement in the texture and my pores are gone, the skin also looks so smooth, the acne scars are way less noticeable, some have even disappeared which is great!! Well I have my 5th one on Monday and my 6th one July 2nd.

5th microdermabrasion done this afternoon, this time a vegetable peel mask was applied then followed by a aloe vera cooling mask. I absolutely loved it !!! My dermatologist said i will start to peel in a few days so im hoping it wont be so bad since we are planning our big move soon, i really dont want to be walking around with dry, peeling skin lol. So far im liking the results, i cant believe ive already had 5 done, my next one will be in two weeks :)

Got my 6th microdermabrasion done yesterday and so far the results are still going ok, I don't think I will be going back to get any more done since we are moving this weekend and I don't feel as tho the micros did as much as I wanted and was hoping for...I do notice a very good difference over all of my skin but I wanted more of a dramatic effect. Will be posting pics soon
