It depends how aggressive the microdermabrasion is. I would say if you're doing an at home microdermabrasion, glycolic would be more effective. In my opinion, at home microdermabrasions just plump up the skin temporarily.

Generally microdermabrasion doesn't do much for scars, unless it's something similar to the treatment Magnetixboy is getting.

I had a series of micro done in 03 and it made mine look better. We'll see what happens this time, but it won't be for a while bc of 'tane.

Emma,

When you had it done did it make you scab at all and do you remember what type of machine it was.

No, I didn't scab. I was red, though, and she was aggressive with me. I was also on RAM.

I think it just plumped up my skin, which is all I really want. I never kept up with the maintenence after my series, so everything went back to the way it was...I guess.

Micro is really good for tone and stuff. It helps with redmarks and it made my pores look better. It's no miracle treatement, but I don't believe anything is after being on this board so long. Everything is swelling.

That other guys micro scares me - I'd be afraid I'd scar even more from it once the swelling went down.

I like microdermabrasion w/ facial, it is relaxing. I've never done glycolic acid peels perfessionally but I don't like the down time and it doesn't really help scars. It makes the skin really thin and if you are doing it alone you could burn your it
