What is Micropeeling skin?
MicroPeel is one of our most favorable skin treatments for numerous reasons. It’s a non-invasive facial treatment that requires zero surgery and no recovery time. Most MicroPeels use glycolic acid to take off the uppermost layer of your skin.
Can you do a facial and peel at the same time?
Dermaplaning and chemical peels work so well together because the removal of dead cells and peach fuzz allows for deeper penetration and more effective use of the chemical peel.
Can you do chemical peels and microdermabrasion together?
The analogy is like this: microdermabrasion is like mowing the lawn, while a chemical peel is like aerating the lawn. You may get better results when you do both a microdermabrasion and chemical peel at the same time. And you get the best results when you get them done at AlluraDerm MD Med Spa in Albuquerque!
Should I get microdermabrasion or chemical peel first?
Microdermabrasion is performed first and then the chemical peel best for your skin is applied to the skin. For a no downtime treatment, a Glycolic or AHA Peel is used. For a deeper exfoliation, a Jessner’s, TCA or Acne Peel is used.
How often should you get MicroPeel?
Most clients will need about 6 micropeel treatments (spaced 4 weeks apart) to see their ideal results.
What should I do after a micro peel?
- Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools for a few days before and after treatment.
- Apply sunscreen and moisturizer as needed.
- Keep hydrated, and avoid sunlight for one week after.
- Do not wax the treated area for at least five days after.
- Do not apply glycolic acids or Retin-A® for at least three days after.

While dermaplaning and chemical peels are effective apart, they work synergistically together. Dermaplaning helps to remove the outer layers of the skin, making the chemical solution in a chemical peel far more effective.
Is a chemical peel better than a facial?
Generally speaking, chemical peels are better for more advanced skin problems or signs of aging, as facials tackle more superficial issues. When used together, both skin treatments promise lovely, younger-looking skin.
Which is better microdermabrasion or glycolic peel?
Microdermabrasion does not draw moisturizers into the skin, whereas a glycolic peel does. Microdermabrasion stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin thus making it appear more vibrant. A glycolic peel takes about 10-15 minutes, but is usually used in addition to other treatments such as a facial.
How does skin look after microdermabrasion?
After microdermabrasion, your skin will be pink and feel dry and tight (like sunburn or windburn) for about 24 hours. Use moisturizer and broad spectrum sunscreen. Some types of makeup should not be applied for at least 24 hours after the procedure.
What is better than a chemical peel?
Laser treatments are superior to chemical peels in how controllable and precise it is. It’s easier to just target an acne scar or a few spots on the skin with a laser. The laser is also better for deep collagen remodeling. If you are trying to address wrinkles or sagging skin, lasers will be a better option.
