Generally, the microdermabrasion scar treatment is performed with the help of micro-crystal flow, which the skin is sandblasted with, efficaciously peeling off a very delicate skin layer. This layer consists of dead cells that is why the alive tissue underneath don’t suffer any way. Both sunken and raised scars can be subjected to microabrasion, but because of its superficial nature, it better to apply it on raised facial scars than on sunken ones.
One should apply about 10 microdermabrasion treatments to achieve a real improvement. Superficial scars usually disappear completely while the deeper ones get less evident for certain.

For instance, a surgical scar on arm will be less resistant to UV rays, there will be no hair and it won’t be elastic.
More visible and uglier scars annoy us the majority of people.During the skin damaging, the collagen is used by bodyto supply it with new cells replacing the damaged tissues,which form scars. They look different but at first show slightly redness.
Sometimes the structure, supporting the skin, begins to collapse. This is the main reason of sunken scarring, which may be the result of acne, chickenpox or surgery.
