I've suffered from deeply embedded blackheads for over ten years now and no over-the-counter facial scrubs have worked. I went to the doctor, and the doctor essentially said go to a beautician. I went to two places specializing in acne treatments and one said "we recommend Laser Skin Resurfacing, the other said "we recommend salicylic peels". I really don't have a clue which one to go for (and I can really only afford to go for one course of treatments - trying both isn't an option). I want one which will work, and ideally which doesn't have any nasty side effects.
Anyone's experience in or knowledge of this would be much appreciated.
