Microdermabrasion works well on superficial skin imperfections such as minor acne scars, enlarged pores and minor sun damage. Chemical peels tend to be more effective in treating more serious concerns such as deeper acne scars, acne, significant sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles. At Avalon Laser we treat San Diego microdermabrasion patients as well as those in need of a chemical peel. Our cosmetic dermatology team determines which treatment is best for each patient on a case-by-case basis.
Chemical peels come in different strengths anywhere from mild, medium and deep. The recovery time after a peel depends on it’s strength. Most medium strength chemical peels have about 2-3 day recovery time. To achieve significant results patients may need anywhere from 6-12 microdermabrasion sessions spread one month apart. Medium strength chemical peels usually require 1-3 treatments with occasional maintenance.
