Dermabrasion was developed to improve acne scars, pox marks, and scars from accidents or disease.
Microdermabrasion works on all skin types and colors. It makes fine modifICATIONS, causing no skin color transform or disfigurement. It is not helpful for deeper trouble such as scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, or deep acne scars.
With microdermabrasion, there is less downtime than with dermabrasion. Skin is temporarily pink but fully recovers within 24 hours. It doesn't require surgery or anesthetics. That may help people who cannot take "down time" for healing.
