So Happy Together: Microdermabrasion & Chemical Peels
If you’re wondering whether to go with microdermabrasion or a chemical peel, the answer may be both!
The analogy is like this: microdermabrasion is like mowing the lawn, while a chemical peel is like aerating the lawn.
You may get better results when you do both a microdermabrasion and chemical peel at the same time. And you get the best results when you get them done at AlluraDerm MD Med Spa in Albuquerque!
How does Microdermabrasion & Chemical Peels Work?
Microdermabrasion removes much of the top layer of skin in the epidermis, while a chemical peels drives antioxidants into the living part of the skin, the dermis. Basically, microdermabrasion is “mechanical” exfoliation and chemical peels are “chemical” exfoliation.
Chemical peels are selected based on your skin type. There are a variety of chemical peels for acne, pigmentation and anti-aging.. Whatever your skin’s needs, it starts with one microdermabrasion and chemical peel treatment to see positive changes in your skin.
Benefits of Professional Exfoliation
With microdermabrasion, only a small portion of the epidermis is removed, so there is little to no downtime. Your skin may appear pink for a few hours following treatment. With chemical peels, your skin may peel in the week following the treatment.
Professional exfoliation helps stimulate collagen and help the skin appear softer and smoother, even after one treatment at AlluraDerm. Your makeup will apply smoother and the products you use at home are more effective because they penetrate the living part of the skin instead of sitting on top of dead skin.
