  1. Tape method? What is this accomplishing that normal exfoliation isn't. Use your brains guys.
  2. The reality is that the more invasive the procedure the better the end result. Microdermabrasion is going to do little for acne scars unless they are shallow.
  3. Nothing at all wrong with trying. Just don't make it into an unhealthy obsession. And don't even think about suicide.
  4. Scars aren't necessarily a bad thing. Seems like some of you are letting this dictate how you live your lives. I read these threads about people being depressed about their scars with some even considering suicide. There are worse things in this world than acne and scars.

  9. Don't use dermabrasion period. This is an old procedure. Laser resurfacing is the way to go. Alot less risk and much more benefits.
