That is completely normal, Microdermabrasion helps stimulate oils in the skin after a treatment and bring everything out to the surface, if you already had some active acne in the skin I would suggest waiting till the blemishes are controlled. Ask your provider to possibly do a light chemical peel after you have had your treatment, this will help control the break outs.

Best of Luck
