New, advise on getting microD

hello everyone! i am a newbie here and have come here to get to know people who live with what i do but also for some advise. I am a 26 yr old mother of 2 small kids ages 2 and 7, im a stay at home mom been married 8 yr and my hubby is our only income. I have had problem skin since as far back as i can remember but gorwing up i live with dad and step mom and she never cared to take time to teach me about washing face and taking care of my skin. Just over last 2 yr i have noticed scarring on my face badly enough to where im to self conscious to be outside and have to talking to someone face to face, i know in the sun my scars really seem to stand out so that takes away from my kids because i avoid being outside with them. Here is the ting we got our taxes back and have maybe $800 left i can get microD treatments and get 6 for $500 should i go for it? I wonder if the kits at wal mart do just as good or not? I just feel guilty because we are a family who lives pay check to paycheck but at same time this is money we didnt have a week or so ago anyhow so should i get it? WIll it helkp with little scars or will i be wasting money? I have a app set up for this friday my hubby said to go for it and i hink it it wil help fade most of my scares my confidence will soar its sooo low right now i feel so ugly and it doesnt help that he acts like he is grossed out to touch my face. Any tips would help me greatly :( I will try to add a pic just to give a better idea on my complexion and maybe it will help if thinking thew microdermabrasion may or maynopt work for me and my small scars BAD PIC I havent had my shower or nothing after working out

Carebear,

Your scarring is very shallow. Handn't you told us you have scars, I would have never noticed them. It does look a little dehydrated and irritated though. Even if your financial situation were that optimal , you shouldn't spend your money on microdermabrassion. It does nothing for scarring. It just helps your skin tone. And after a couple of months, the effects vanish completly. So save those extra $500. Maybe open an account for your kids' college. We all want to look our best. I understand you. But at least your situation is not as hard as ours in many aspects. For example. You have a hardworking husband and two kids. If they accept the way you are, you don't need to impress anybody. Dont get my wrong. But sometimes it's a little harder for "Single" people because they still have to sell themselves and find a lovemate. Personality counts a lot. But It'll be much better to be happy with our appearance.

Why don't you go to goldport beauty .com and order the epidermx and the silika camellia oil the results take about 6 months to show but it is a cheaper method of microD...many ppl have even said that it is better than the microD done in salons...I wouldn't know since I have only ever used the epidermx and never gotten it done at the salon...HTH!!
