I most likely will get a series of microdermabrasions done later this year to help acne scarring and the overall appearance of my skin. It basically takes off the top layer of your skin and is quite gentle, but it can range from general skin exfoliation to a stronger scar reducing strength. It is done in a series of anywhere from 5-15 to achieve good results since it is a progressive treatment, just not one shot.

However, I'm not sure what it will really do for active acne besides slough off dead skin cells which can lead to the formation of acne, in which case you're better off with Retin-A. However, my belief is that Retin-A does really nothing for true acne reduction, though it can lead to better looking skin overall. However, I really believe you're better off with Accutane than subjecting yourself to constant skin irritation through retinoids.
