Microdermabrasion is a type of exfoliation so it will help to resurface the skin; improving texture, hyperpigmentation and scarring. Great for Acne scarring but can irritate active acne just like over exfoliating with a scrub can do more harm than good.

Microdermabrasion is a skin-freshening technique that helps repair facial skin that takes a beating from the sun and the effects of aging. The plastic surgeon uses a device like a fine sandblaster to spray tiny crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin. As with other skin rejuvenation techniques, more than one treatment may be needed to reduce or remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.

Is it a bad idea to get microdermabrasion while you still have acne? My skin has gotten a lot better but that means I have a lot of scars. Usually I'll have 3-4 pimples consistently but I'd really like to lighten up my scars...I'm trying clearasil's scar formula but I don't see much difference.

I went to an aesthetician for a while and was getting facials to get my acne under control. I asked for microdermabrasion everytime i went and although she easily could have made money off of me by doing it she always said i needed to wait until i was clear. I think a lot of amateur aestheticians who want to make extra money will do it on active acne but i would strongly recommend against it. It will just do more damage. You shouldnt attempt to heal the scars until you have gotten the active stuff under control.
