I went to a medical spa about my skin problems. Though I do not have bad acne I have red marks leftover from previous breakouts. I hate them so much! The Estitition (sorry about the spelling) told me to do six session of microdermabrasion along with light chemical peels.
Yesterday I had my first one. She cleaned my face then started the microdermabrasion. I have very sensitive skin so I was prepared for it to be painful, but it wasn't at all. It feels like a cats tongue. She did three rounds on my intire face. Then she did a light chemical peel.When I came out of the office and looked in the mirror I looked awful. The red marks were very red and I started thinking twice on the money I had just spent. She told me though that it definitelty looks worse afterwards.
This morning when I got up, it still looked red but had definitely calmed down a bit. My red marks do not look different though but tomarow I will see if they have at all faded.My skin is very soft though.
I will keep updating every treatment and day.

had my fifth micro on friday(two days ago). She did it harder then ever before this time. When I went into the bathroom my redspots and face were so so so so red and my cheek where she worked the hardest had almost like a hickey on it. It scared the crap out of me. It has been two days and its getting better. Im excited to see what it looks like in a week becuase since she went so hard the red spots will probably look so much better. Wish me luck!!
