Ever wonder what the difference between the two skin rejuvenation options are? Dermabrasion introduces a new, smooth layer of skin appear after your skin is treated by sanding it with a special instrument. Microdermabrasion is mainly used for those who have brown or age spots, and dull skin. Instead of sanding your skin with an instrument, the dermatologist will spray exfoliating crystals to create smoother skin.
The main difference between the two types of skin rejuvenation are that dermabrasion is usually used for those with fair skin, as microdermabrasion can be done on every skin type. After receiving dermabrasion patients should expect their skin to feel tight and they may experience some burning. Patients who get microdermabrasion should expect their skin to feel tight and dry. Microdermabrasion has the east downtime which lasts only about 24 hours.
As with any procedure you should have a consultation with a dermatologist to discuss which type of skin rejuvenation is the right option for you.
