After a peel treatment, clients are usually advised to avoid the sun or apply strong sunscreen, as skin is much more sensitive. The treatment is not a quick fix; light flakes and scabbing can occur a few days after a peel, but overall, it usually leaves skin more radiant and smooth for an extended period. Microdermabrasion is a slightly more invasive procedure in which a technician or dermatologist uses a special tool that blasts skin with tiny crystals, then vacuums up the used crystals and the dead skin and impurities that the crystals reveal. The treatment targets specific areas of discoloration, acne and signs of aging. Scrubs are available over the counter for a fraction of the cost of treatment by professionals - most simply require the user to smooth the cream over an area of skin to exfoliate and draw out impurities. Many contain special moisturizers that make it a one-step process. Ask your dermatologist if either of the processes is right for you.
