Does microdermabrasion help clear acne and acne scars?

Unfortunately, microdermabrasion does not help with active acne (red pimples) or with acne scars. Microdermabrasion is a good option for individuals with only comedones (whiteheads and blackheads) but not inflammatory pimples. However, in individuals with both comedones and inflammatory pimples, microdermabrasion can irritate the skin and make acne worse.
