I have severe acne, can microdermabrasion remove it?

Microdermabrasion and Zits

You got called "Pizza Face" in high school despite the fact that your mother never let you eat pizza and told you, "Ignore them, you're a beautiful person inside." Years later, despite every skin care treatment, you still think you look like a candidate for an alien on "Star Trek" thanks to acne scarring. Sorry, the last series got canceled.

But there is hope: microdermabrasion acne treatments. You're still a beautiful person inside, but you want to greet the world with a face free of acne. Microdermabrasion uses a light mist of crystals in a "sandblasting" technique to erase scars from acne. The physican sucks up the dead red discolored cells and crystals with a vacuum. You might still see red after the microdermabrasion procedure, but this is just temporary redness. Any skin flaking is also temporary. The microdermabrasion stimulates new skin cell growth, in addition to new collagen deposits. Microdermabrasion acne treatments clain impurities from the skin that can keep you looking like a pepperoni pizza. Superficial microdermabrasion is best if you have light acne scarring.

For deeper acne scarring, try deep microdermabrasion performed by a qualified physician--a cosmetician can do light microdermabrasion treatment. Be sure to take good care of your skin in-between mocrodermabrasion sessions. Drink water, don't smoke, and moisturize your skin. Let that inner beauty shine, and those immature people from high school will probably tell you that you look great at your high school reunion. When they apologize for meanness, forgive them, because you are beautiful.

Great blog! Thanks. I recently had microdermabrasion done and by accident I stumbled upon www.thepatientsadvantage.com. I used them when looking for a provider.

What I liked the most was that my profile remained anynomyous until I was ready to decide what to do. I received replies from four surgeons that met all the things I was looking for. I liked having that complete control without the sales pressure that some of these places can be known for.

If you are going to go down the cosmetic surgery road...better to be safe than sorry. Check them out.
