A few months ago I managed to grind off all my raised acne scars with home microdermabrasion. A few weeks ago, some of the scars seemed to have returned. Is this indeed what happened? If so, how can I ensure that they do not return again? Or are they breakouts?
thanks.Can acne scars return after being ground off with microdermabrasion?
Its hard to say without a picture, however scars are usually from deep beneath several layers of skin, thats why they are such a pain to get rid of and take lots of time to heal. So maybe you refreshed your top layer, and now the bottom layers are coming through or you could have new breakouts, if your skin is still breaking out you should not do microdermabrasion as that just irritates your skin even more and creates more breakouts. You should wait until your skin fully heals and is no longer prone to acne then use microdermabrasion. In the meantime a light scrub would be ok and a good facial mask.
