The Difference between a Chemical Peel and Microdermabrasion | New Serenity Day Spa – Best Facials in Scottsdale

       Microdermabrasion and chemical peels are cosmetic procedures that have similar effects and uses.  Both of these procedures remove the topmost surface of your skin. The Difference between a Chemical peel and Microdermabrasion is Microdermabrasion uses a brush that turns rapidly and sands down the skin. Microdermabrasion is a gentle and non-invasive method that scrubs away dead skin cells. A chemical peel is a strong method of removing entire layers of skin and usually requires recovery time.  Both of them are a fabulous process of removing dead skin cells for more youthful appearance. Wrinkles, scars, and hyper-pigmentation can be improved after several treatments.



  • Are tiny crystals used to either scrub away dead and damaged skin
  • Great for minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation and scars
  • Non-invasive, meant for almost all skin types
  •  Rejuvenates your skin and face
  • Microdermabrasion sessions can last anywhere from 5–60 minutes depending on the area of the skin being worked on
  • A gentle but rough feel
  • Painless
Chemical Peels
  • Deep exfoliation
  • Removes dead and damaged skin
  • Great for minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation and scars
  •  A liquid that is made to absorb into the skin
  •  May feel a little heat sensation, is controlled by a cooling fan
  • May peel the next few days after treatment, depending on the intensity of the peel

       You may be indecisive on which treatment to choose, you should see which bullet points of the category you fall under the most.  If you are very sensitive to heat you may not want to go with a chemical peel.  If you have super sensitive or rosacea skin you may not want to choose the microdermabrasion because of the crystals used to exfoliate the skin. Microdermabrasion is a topical exfoliation treatment. It is designed to give you clear, smooth skin and a lasting glow. Chemical peels go underneath the outer layer of the skins surface to address bigger problems.  Chemical peels treat fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration.  During this procedure you will experience mild discomfort.  After a chemical peel you will experience mild to heavy skin shedding, leaving your skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated! :)

Ask your esthetician what procedure would be best for you.  A professional can guide you in the right direction when making a choice to improve the appearance of your skin.
