Dear sir/madam
i am a 26 y.o male with asian background
i have open pores, acne, acne scaring and blackheads on my face
i just want to know is microdermabrasion is safe for me.and does it give desired result


Microdermabrasion can help a little with acne, but works best in conjunction with other treatments such medical grade skin care, medication for acne, and chemical peels. Open pores tend to not change, and are simply a reflection of your skin’s natural tendency to produce oil. Acne scarring is generally not very well treated with microdermabrasion, and tends to respond better to treatments such as Fraxel laser.
