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! I would say though that it was worth it…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.
So I looked for other options forother acne scars removal that I can opt to have, one is microdermabrasion. 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 had use a lot of acne products and somehow, after a year battling acne, it’s almost gone. (Thank God!) The next treatment I might undergo is lighter, like fruit peeling.
