In brief: Consider other tx's

For resurfacing skin there are other modalities that can be used such as lasers or peels.
Ask your dermatologist or plastic surgeon.

In brief: Alternate suggestion

Microdermabrasion is very mild exfoliating agent we have used a diamond tipped planer, chemical peels and superficial dermal planning with a blade for several years with good success.

In brief: Dermaplaning

Microdermabrasion is an adequate type of exfoliation.
There are subtle differences between machines. Dermaplaning is much more effective and longer lasting. This is done with a special blade but is not uncomfortable.
