What exactly are microdermabrasions used for?

Okay, I am 19 years old and have been suffering from cystic acne for about 2 years now. I have some dark scars and red marks on my cheeks and chin from cysts. Some scars are old and some are new, now that my cysts have slowed down some I want to work on my acne scars, and brighten my skin back up and get it smooth and clear from scars again. I am also a black male but light skin, and the red marks and scars make my face look awfully dark from my neck complexion, so I want to brigthen my skin back up and get rid of the red marks and scars. But first off I want to know what exactly are microdermabrasions used for? and how do they work on the skin? if anyone know please let me know! i am thinking about purchasing the Vita K Solution At Home Microdermabrasion kit for 19.99 from walgreens, but I need to know has anyone tried this product? and if it works good for acne scars? if not what kind of microdermabrasion kit can i use, preferably an kit where I can get from walgreens or cvs inside a store so i dont have to order it, my price range is $20-$50 Any info about microdermabrasions and acne scars and purchasing a kit would be highly appreciated thank you all!!!

It's used for a lot of the things you have mentioned - lightening acne scars/red marks, brightening skin tone, making skin smoother and softer, and may control breakouts to some degree. I haven't used the Vita K kit. The one I use is called Epidermx and I think it's online only.
