I was wondering, who should administer Chemical peels and Microdermbrasion--an aesthetician or a physician?
Who Should Do Chemical Peels and Microdermabrasion?

Chemical peel & microdermabrasion by physicians or aestheticians
Lisa in CT,
Generally, very superficial skin treatments such as fruit peels or microdermabrasion may be performed by anyone (physician, nurse, aesthetician, etc). Some companies sell such peel kits for home use by patients themselves.
Chemical peels vary by skin depth penetration, chemical agent & concentration, and application. Deeper peels have better results. Only board-certified physicians may administer chemical peels once a certain depth has been reached. Potential serious complications may occur with such treatments. Cosmetic results, however, are usually much better with these deeper peels.
Speak with a physician who performs chemical peels to see which skin care treatment would be appropriate for you. Best of luck.
This is debatable
Lower strength peels can probably be safely administered by either, but understand that you are paying for experience. Your better results with deeper peels will more likely be in the hands of an experienced physician.
