I am planning to do a microdermabrasion to improve my skin because of acne marks. So, I also would like to know if microdermabrasion can remove the tan, and thus restore my natural skin color
Hiya Maxwell, for tanning removal you will see good results even from just getting chemical peels, so ask your doctor about that first. They will be less expensive and lactic acid, glycolic acid peels can reduce the tan quite a bit. Also be sure to use a full spectrum sunscreen at all times. For home use, a face wash containing liquorice, glycolic acid etc. such as Glomed can help you maintain the results.
