Using Resurfx for acne scaring and hyperpigmentation

Recommended Posts

I had severe acne 2 years ago, went on accutane for almost a year and now see a minimal amount of acne that I’m comfortable with. However I have severe scarring from the cystic acne. I went to a dermatologist 6 months after done accutane treatment like I was told by my other dermatologist and they recommended “Resurfx” or if I wanted to start with something less harsh just to do microneedling 3-6x. Well anyways I did 1 session of micro needling and it was good but my skin got very dry and red (as expected). My concern is I’ve always had sensitive/dry skin (face flushes red easy, sunburn easy, and very dry) Now on the accutane my skin got even more sensitive and has even stayed sensitive/dry (I basically have to put on moisturizer daily or my skin will pee after 2-3 days in some spots). I’m wondering if anyone has ever tried Resurfx and what there experience with it is? Also, how did your skin handle Resurfx? Was it really dry? Sensitive after? Did Resurfx help you? For my skin type being dry and sensitive; would you just suggest doing 5 more microneedling sessions?
