I have acne issues- will this help with prevention and getting rid of old scars?

Hi Amanda, The answer is yes to both questions. The explanation to prevention of acne is that cupping pulls stagnation out of tissues and brings it to the skin level. The pores expand discharging these wastes and toxins, and the rest is flushed out through the lymphatic system. As far as getting rid of old scars, the cupping creates localized expansion of tissue producing vasodilation or increased blood flow which means better nutrition to your skin and softening of scar tissue as well as relaxing of lines and creases. I do use cocnut oil on the face as cocnut oil has benefits that go beyond the skin surface. One of which is its use as an antimicrobial, antifungal agent. If you feel uncomfortable having oil of any kind on your face, please let me know. We can try something else. But I think what you'll find is that cocnut oil is good for all skin types, even those with acne. Thanks for your great question! Jessica
