I did eribium laser for my acne scars I got more scars. I don't want to go for laser treatments. I want to do dermabraison for my acne scars. Helpful?

Dermabrasion works. Dermabrasion is an old tried and true method of treatment for acne scarring. It is not used as much anymore, because lasers are sexier. If your scarring is not around your eyes dermabrasion can be very effective.
May help. Lots of options for acne scars. Unfortunately no one treatment is perfect and they are difficult to treat. Three basic approaches: surface treatments, "resurfacing" (ie laser or dermabrasion), volume treatments (injectable fillers to "plump up" the depressed areas) and excisional treatments as for for localized areas or through stretching the skin as with a form of facelift.

Dermabrasion . Dermabrasion does have a risk of leaving discolouration of the skin and the risk is higher if you have dark skin. A safer, and probably more effective treatment would be one of the fractionated lasers, especially the non-ablative lasers (fraxel) if you have dark skin. Read more...
Yes. Most ablative procedures could cause hyper or hypopigmentation. Treatment with platelet rich plasma, depending on what kind of acne scars you have could be a better option with lesser to no risk of hyperpigmentation/hypopigmentation. Read more...
Depends how deep. Dermabrasion is not harmful than using a towel to irritate the skin. All it does is remove the dead skin off the face when done by an esthetician. If done by a physician till you get bleeding than it is very painful and will improve acne and possible cause pigmentation problems. Other modalities may be a better fit for you if you are scared. Microneedling, ipl, prp, lasers, acne creams. Read more...

Severe acne scars on forehead, and the sides of the face. Besides dermabrasion & other skin resurfacing treatments how can I achieve clear skin again?

Acne scars. It is unlikely that your skin will be clear but it can be improved. Treatment must be based on addressing the active disease (usually with oral retinoids and/or systemic or topical antibiotics and skin care regimen) and then using other methods to address the established scars. This can include peels, lasers, dermabrasion, surgery, grafts, fillers, grafts, etc. Read more...
No guarantee. No treatment will guarantee complete resolution of acne scars. You mentioned dermoabrasion, was it done using chemical peels or laser peeling? Laser peeling seems to be more effective, but again, no guarantee. I'd strongly recommend discussing your options with a dermatologist. If your acne are deep ones, as i mentioned again, there may no complete resolution. Read more...
Don't give up! Deep acne scars are a tough problem. Laser resurfacing, in my opinion, is the best way to improve the appearance. It is rarely a one time treatment, however. We use active fx and deep fx and repeat the treatment a few times (we wait a few months between treatments to evaluate the effect) for maximal benefit. Read more...
Only limited options. These are the best available options. Occasionally, when there is a cluster of severe scars in one area, that entire area can be excised so as to remove multiple acne scars in exchange for one narrow, flat, linear scar. This is placed so as to be as inconspicuous as possible. In patients over about 40 years of age, skin tightening procedures ("mini-facelift") might also help. Read more...
Seek consultation. If you still have active acne, seek a dermatologist to get control of the acne first, then you can address the scarring. Next, seek consultation with a qualified facial plastic surgeon. There are different modalities available, but it depends on your exact condition. Very deep "ice pick" scars sometimes do best with excision. Great improvements are possible. Best wishes! Read more...
