Is there a difference in the appearance of the skin when comparing the results of a chemical peel and dermabrasion? I am 37 years old and would like to have treatment on my face.
The remaining different types of chemical peels and the depth of the peel can vary with different solutions as well as different applications of the same solution. In the same light, the depth of dermabrasion may also be varied. Therefore similar results may be obtained using each of these treatments. Dermabrasion is usually used for more significant wrinkling and requires an expert with significant experience to avoid complications. Even in expert hands, dermabrasion can lead to permanent loss of pigmentation more easily than chemical peeling. Dermabrasion is usually not indicated for a 37-year-old patient.
