Skin peel or Microdermabrasion?

Recommended Posts

i've had both and jenny is so right. I think the peel is more abrasive b/c it literally peels a few layers of your skin off chemically. i looked pretty flaky a few days after and had glowing, tight skin a week later. with the micro, my face peels a bit but not as bad. i think you get the most benefit with the micro when you go every 6 weeks. I've been doing that and i can tell my face is fresher. i personally just don't like the way the peal feels...hot and burning. uncomfortable more than the micro.

They're both uncomfortable but results are amazing. I have had micro done several times and I also do it on my clients. It's great but not for everyone. If you have sensitive or very fair skin, it's definitely not what you want.

I have had 3 microderms and I actually think it feels really good. Your skin will never feel so clean! They say it feels like a cat's tongue and I agree. I notice a change in my skin, but need to go a few more times. I go to a beauty college and pay only 34 dollars each time. I think it's pretty hard to screw up so I would trust a trainee on this one!

Yea when I was learning it in school, my teacher would be in the room with me until I was comfortable enough doing it on the clients alone. It's definitely the cheapest route.. going to a beauty school. I believe at my school they only charged like $50 where as at the spa I worked at, they charged $135 for one session.

I want a micro-derm! Benn wanting one forever, and since I am pale and have sensitive skin, I guess a peel wouldn't be great for me. Been wanting to do this for a while before the wedding, to get a few treatments in...
