Everyone who had successfully braved the battle of a pimply past know that having acne is not such a bad thing. Yes, you read that right. Having acne is not that bad. Because little did you know, after the weird phase of disastrous acne breakouts, an even more horrifying experience is lurking around the corner.

Acne scars are worse than having acne itself.

Curing acne is easier because of a wide array of solutions to address it like facial cleansers, over-the-counter acne medications, blue light therapy, diet modification or hormonal therapy.

In a matter of days or weeks, your acne will dry up and heal but then, if you get acne scars, that’s a completely different story.

Acne scars are the worst!

Acne scarring might be more of a cosmetic problem but it has led to depression and negative self-worth. Those who suffer from acne scars are in the constant lookout for the next best thing to have it fixed and it may take years of unwavering effort.

People resort to a lot of homemade experiments, hopefully wishing that they could whip up something to erase acne scars. Those who can afford in-office treatments shell out a lot of money to get it fixed. Some people use chemical peeling solution and risk burning their skin and endure the pain just so they can peel their acne scars away.

Those who have the talent in make-up application perfect their game just so they can cover up these unsightly battle-marks.

Why Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a method used in most esthetic clinics to buff away rough skin. It uses suction and diamond-tipped exfoliation to get rid of the dead layers of skin to reveal fresh, new skin. Every time you have it done, you are buffing away the dark pigmentation that scars leave on your skin.

If you have pitted scars, you get closer and closer to flattening the area of your skin to even out the depressions that your acne has left you. Also, microdermabrasion produces a perfect surface for topical scar gels to be fully absorbed into the skin.

Having microdermabrasion hastens the cell turnover rate to even out your skin. The faster the cell turnover rate, the quicker it is that you renew your skin and slough the scars off. However, this is not an overnight process.

It may take weeks or months to even out your skin and get rid of the scars. Even with in-office treatments, it is recommended to have several sessions to get noticeable results. The problem is, in-office treatments can cost an arm and a leg.

Normally, it’s around $100-$150 per session. If you can afford such treatments, well and good but let’s be real, not everyone can shell out that much.
