Microdermabrasion acne scars is becoming a more popular choice for treatment, not only because it’s cheap but it can actually be done in a beauty spa without professional dermatologist. But as with any other treatments, microdermabrasion is not foolproof. Still the question remains is that how effective is microdermabrasion for treating acne scar?
Microdermabrasion acne scars removes the outer most layer of skin, stimulating the next layer to produce new and healthier ones to replace the scar and old layer of the skin. Some patients with mild acne scars see improvement after one treatment, but if you have more severe acne scars, you may have to undergo several treatments to be able to sufficiently replace the scar tissue.
The effectiveness of microdermabrasion for acne scars depends on several factors such as the number, size, depth and location of your acne scars. These will determine the severity of scar and the number of treatments you will have to undergo to see a better result. Of course, the deeper and more scars you have, the more difficult it is to remove them. You will have to undertake several years of microdermabrasion. Also, this treatment is not suitable for deep acne scars because this treatment only works to replace skin at the top layer. In order to erase deep scars you might have to resort to other treatment options.
In general, microdermabrasion works best for milder acne scars but it can also do you good even if you deep scars. It’s not like you have 100% deep scars on your face. Most of the acne scars are superficial and so they can be effectively erased microdermabrasion acne scars.
