The key to choosing an acne treatment depends on the severity and type of acne. If you have had acne since a long time, it is likely that there is an underlying cause for the same which may need to be investigated. Derma abrasion is a medical procedure in which the outer layer of the skin is removed by abrasion. It is akin to a carpenter at work using sandpaper to smoothen out rough wooden surfaces. Derma abrasion is a moderately invasive line of treatment and is therefore to be undertaken with caution. It is not indicated during an acute bout of acne when your skin is already inflamed as it may cause scarring of the skin. After all, the goal in treating acne is not only to control the acne but also to promote a clearer and healthier skin. As your acne has been chronic, it is important for you to investigate your case thoroughly and rule out the underlying factors. In your case an all-round approach which treats acne internally as well externally may be appropriate. Once your acne settles down, continue to follow good skin care by including a mild scrub and peel in your skin care regime to keep your pores clean.
