Contraindications for Microdermabrasions are rare, chemical peels more
Microdermabrasions essentially clear away the dead cells, leaving the skin more alive and radiant. You do not want to do it, or chemical peel if you have an active skin inflamation.
In addition to this, chemical peels go to varying depths, and some people are more sensitive to the agents used than others.
To be safe, you should check with your doctor if this is new for you.
Select the appropriate treatment for the best result
Microdermabrasion is a superficial mechanical form of exfoliation. This treatment is good and useful for all skin types. It will smooth out the skin by removing surface debris and dead skin cells.
There are many different types of chemical peels and some are not appropriate for certain conditions or skin types. There are basically 5 levels of chemical peel from superficial to deep. The deeper that you go with a peel the more the complication rate and chances of a problem. If you are serious about a chemical peel go to an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Have your skin evaluated. Determine what specific problem you are trying to correct and then an appropriate level of chemical peel can be selected.
