Hydrafacial or Microdermabrasion for Better Skin Tone?

Is Hydrafacial better than Microdermabrasion? Or what would you recommend for a better skin tone that clears out whiteheads, clogged pores, sun spots, and fine lines? Thanks.

Microdermabrasion helps clear clogged pores

Microdermabrasion is an aggressive exfoliation that has suction to clean out your pores.  It has been around a long time but it is still a great treatment.  There are some newer variations of microdermabrasion, including hydrafacial and silk peel.  They are similar to microdermabrasion but add in hydration.  So they exfoliate and have suction to clean pores, but they also hydrate as well.   They both will improve the texture of your skin which will soften fine lines, but neither will remove sunspots.  Consider and IPL for that.
