I have got mild acne and i have tried everything to get rid of it - i have heard about roaccutane- would a doctor prescribe me this for a case of mild acne? and how much is the cost of this medication approx?
Also im interested in microdermabrasion to get rid of excisting acne scars on my face - how many microdermabrasion treatments would i need to get rid of these acne marks. Will one be efficient as it is not extremely bad?
Thank you

Dear Roaccutane
I suggest that you see a dermatologist to evaluate your skin and see if you really need this - the side effects can be unpleasant - the cost can vary depending on if you use the original or a generic subsitute. The dermatologist will also be able to tell you what method of treatment ( lazer, dermabration etc) would be the most suitable for your skin.
