I read all the studies and was incredibly excited that I could finally be rid of my acne. My heart soared and my hopes were high for my first microdermabrasion acne scar treatment. I had read all the reports that said how great these treatments were and how much better my face would look. I went in for the first of three crystal microdermabrasion treatments. After I left I felt like a new man. My face looked as good as it ever had and it felt fresh and new. If only it had stayed that way. Unfortunately for me my microdermabrasion acne scar treatment went south from there.
Where My Microdermabrasion Acne Scar Treatments Went Wrong
About three days after my microdermabrasion acne scar treatment I started to notice a little redness on my cheek. I thought nothing of it and continued using the same products that they had supplied me. Over the next couple of days the redness started to get worse and worse. I also noticed that several very large acne spots had started to form. I still followed their instructions and applied the creams and other ointments when I was supposed to and in the right dosage. None of these slowed down the progress of the acne.
Eventually it came to a head and was by far the largest acne problem I had ever had. I had to in to the doctors office and have the acne extracted. After they were done with this it left behind the biggest scar I have had to date. I have had many acne problems in the past but nothing was even remotely close to what I went through after my microdermabrasion acne treatment. Now maybe it was a reaction to the medication they gave me or something else, I do not know, all I do know is that I am never going to put myself through that again.
I do not mean to put you off completely to microdermabrasion acne scar treatment all together. I have known and met many people that had the treatment and it worked out wonderfully for them. In my case though this did not happen. I just want to warn you that while in 90% of the cases out there the treatments are highly effective, in my case microdermabrasion acne scar treatment was not. If you are considering having it done I just wanted to make you aware of my situation so that you could be prepared if something did happen. My biggest mistake going in was not knowing what the possible consequences were. If I did know, I still would have done it but at least I would have been more prepared and proactive when I noticed that something was wrong.
