Consider : Consider tca peel 20%, you do them yourself, they are better and cheaper that microdermabrasion. Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon.

Home microderm: You can get decent results from home microdermabrasion systems, but not professional results. Still, you should see skin improvement, so it should be worth it. Remem.
