Microdermabrasion is a gentle treatment that exfoliates the upper layers of the skin. It can temporarily reduce blackheads and improve skin texture. Microdermabrasion can be used to treat mild acne, however prescription creams should also be utilized to address the cause of acne. As microdermabrasion only treats the upper and outer layers of the skin, the effects on mild acne scars are only temporary. Specialist do not recommend this treatment for acne scars. Treatment such as Fractional Lasers, and RadioFrequency are far more effective in treating and curing acne scars.
