I have very bad scaring on my cheeks i have tried all the alternatives to make them lighter but nothing seems to work. how guaranteed is Microdermabrasion for my skin to clear up its scars and acne related marks???
I find that microdermabrasion does very little , even for the mildest of acne scarring. The best treatment for acne scarring usually comprises of a laser treatment, such as the Fraxel laser, or a treatment called skin needling. Usually a good improvement can be made, although it is not possible usually to remove the scars altogether.
