Skin peel, microdermabrasion

Sometime ago, I had a salicylic peel done because of my (annoyingly and recurring) pimples…yes, at this age. 🙁  This was not only expensive, it was really painful but it was worth it…though I had to suffer 5 days of hiding the skin (I donned a scarf and wore a hat), so as not to expose it under the sun and for people not to see.There are other acne scars removal that I can opt to do, one is microdermabrasion, where the stratum corneum (dead outermost surface of the skin) is partially or completely removed by light abrasion, to remove sun-damaged skin and to remove or lessen scars and dark spots on the skin. This procedure had to be done more often for acne and in an interval of a  month or so.  I am actually considering this at that time but my scars where not that much so I waited for some months and now, my skin is clear and I don’t really need another treatment. (Thank God!)
