    @arathella:  Have you spoken with a dermatologist about your skin?  If you haven’t, I’d recommend starting with that.  They can find the treatments that would work best for your skin issues, whether it’s microdermabraison or something else.  I did microdermabraison once and the results were ok, but my problem was I had very deep acne which microdermabraison doesn’t really fix.

    Microdermabrasion made my skin look very “plasticy”.  I personally wouldn’t do it again.

    The best thing I found for my skin was to use some sort of prescription-strength retinoid and lots of exercise.

    I have gotten it in the past and LOVE IT. Its pricey and its one of those things you have to keep up to keep seeing the results. The first few times I was extremely red for about 20ish hours after as I have very sensitive skin, after that redness lasted maybe an hour tops after. I will warn you after my first two sessions I also had some flare ups but I was warned by my doctor and the esthetician that this would probably happen.

    I did it in the past, it didn’t do anything for me. Not worth the money.

    It’s great for some things, but doesn’t fix everything. The best thing to do is go to a good dermatologist and follow their treatment plan. Diet, hormonal BC, topical products, prescriptions … there are a lot of different possible treatments and what works for line or two of us might not work at all for you.

    My sister had it done and her skin looked amazing afterwards. I tried it and it gave me deep, persistent break outs for months and months  when I had no skin issues previously. It was bad enough that I’ll never try it again.

    I loved it! And am doing two more sessions before my wedding. I got a facial, and light chemical peel as well . I have acne scars on my chin and cheek ( a few forehead wrinkles) and the results were great! I recommend going to a licensed aesthetician.  Try it!
