Does microdermabrasion work to get rid of superficial skin markings?

Microdermabrasion: Microderm by nature only gets into the epidermis of the skin (and usually only a few microns deep). The primary effect is to give the skin a more healthy glow by deeply exfoliating the surface.

I want to get rid of deep acne scars.Do I need Microdermabrasion, Chemical peels or laser therapy? I have tried pills from dr & creams even blue light

Professional help: I am sorry you tried worthless cures, and if someone charged you money for "blue light" therapy, I would urge you to contact your local prosecuting attorney.
