What is the difference between Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peel? The short answer is that while each treatment uses a different method, they produce somewhat similar results. Microdermabrasion is a form of exfoliation that uses fine, sterilized crystals to remove dead and damaged skin cells which are then swept away. Microdermabrasion can be used to treat fine lines, dry skin, age spots or skin blemishes. But its effects are long-term as well; Microdermabrasion unclogs pores and stimulates new skin growth, providing your face with a healthy glow, like these patients before and after microdermabrasion. Chemical Peel works differently. A chemical peel can be applied in light or medium strength and can be customized according to your unique skin type. Like microdermabrasion, chemical peel helps renew your skin by treating skin damage (dead skin, age spots, sun exposure, fine lines, hormonal changes). So, rather than using a mild abrasion, a Chemical Peel is applied once in order to remove damaged skin and blemishes, leaving your complexion looking rejuvenated.
