In brief: NO

Dermabrasion is like sanding wood to make it smoother. You won't like it and it will not make your back look any better. It is somewhat useful on the face.

In brief: ACNE

When the dermatologist thinks that you need dermabrasion to remove your acne and scars, he applies a chemical and use an instrument to clear your skin of the acne and scars.
Check your back acne if dermabrasion is needed.
