today I had my first microdermabrasion. Never had one.

After I stopped taking accutane in the middle of February, I'm glad to report that I haven't had any breakouts and I'm really happy. My only worries now are my scars and some red marks that haven't totally faded.

My skin right now is a little sensitive from the microdermabrasion. What they use is like a little vacum, It was a little rough. I'm gonna continue going but I'm not sure how effective they will be. I have heard that they help, that they don't. So at least I will be able to see it myself and of course if it doesn't work to well, I'll try chemical peels or God knows what. They say it takes time for your skin to start producing collagen. I hope they don't rip me off. :)

I'm also looking foward to my next derms appointment at the end of May. She stated she will give me some creams to help my scars & red marks. I think she will prescribe hydroquinone which I can't wait to use (I have some hydroquinone creams at home, but still scared to use b/c I don't know if my skin is ready for it yet. We'll see.
