Microdermabrasion is a treatment where your dermatologist or esthetician removes a layer of dead skin cells. It kinda feels like sandpaper on your skin, but it doesn't hurt too much, and the main thing is that it WORKS! I've had bad acne scarring and after 3 microdermabrasion treatments, my scarring has disappeared!

Microderma is an exfoliating procedure performed with a special device that resurfaces the skin with the help of a high pressure jet of crystals. it works very well on acne scars, fine wrinkles and sun spots. I've been having professional microderma (in office treatment, because you can also do it at home with special kits) for 2 years now and I can tell you everybody around me says I look so much better now.
Hope this helps.Source(s): http://www.skinabrasion.net/scars.html

microdermabrasion is a very safe cosmetic procedure. it's called a lunchtime peel and it only takes 30 mins for a full face procedure it's a vaccum system that sprays crystals onto your face taking out the dead skin cells for new skin cells to emerge. your dermatogist will use a low setting for your 1st time and then gradually increase it at each visit i had it done about a month ago and it was my 1st procedure and my skin is TOTALLY FLAWLESS... very smooth, radiant. you can apply make-up afterwards if you'd like. my face was a little pink that's it. it's very painless too. it's worth every penny .........which it cost me 100.00. you have to have more than 1 procedure to keep up on the maintence. it's for fine lines acne scars, age spots, sun damage skin. you can also buy the at home microderm kits like neutrogena which is 40.00 to keep up on the maintence.
