My scar treatments are causing me to get acne!!

Hi all,

I finished my Accutane about a year ago and have remained pretty clear ever since; only a few pimples, mostly around that hormonal time of the month.

I had some scars left over, so I went to a plastic surgeons office and the aesthiciatition (sp?) recommended seven treatments of microdermabrasion and chemical peels.

After having gone through about 5 treatments, I've noticed that my acne is worse than ever!

Has anyone else experienced this? I already paid for my last two treatments (and no refunds, of course), but I'm thinking I might just cancel them and take a loss, because they haven't done much for my scars (I have both ice pick and hypertrophics) and it is making me breakout like crazy!

Has anyone else experienced an increase in acne from microdermabrasion and/or chemical peels?
