Skin peeling helps with the shedding of dead skin cells on the surface and stimulates the underlying tissue to reproduce cells; as a result, younger and clearer skin replaces the previous skin. This tissue normally sheds its dead cells every 30 days. But this process is sometimes incomplete and a number of dead cells remain on the skin. These cells can clog skin pores and cause pimples and acne. With dead cells present, creams and skin care products are better absorbed. Peeling includes several methods:
This technique takes advantage of carbon dioxide or fractional laser. It is useful in the treatment of some skin diseases such as wounds, brown spots on the face and hands in the elderly and skin wrinkles, as well as skin rejuvenation.

Dermabrasion and Microdermabrasion
It is a skin peeling method that requires a clinic. We will discuss these in the details in the following article.
Dermabrasion is a process that takes advantage of a vibrator device rubbing the upper layer (epidermis) and half of the middle layer (dermis) of the skin. As a result, fibroblast cells in the middle layer, which play a restorative role, begin to produce collagen and new tissues. In this process, the skin regenerates and becomes younger and fresher.
Dermabrasion is performed on an outpatient basis, in specialized dermatological centers and under the supervision of a dermatologist or by a plastic surgeon. We recommend this method for those who want to have clearer and smoother skin by eliminating superficial skin lesions.
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical and non-invasive method.
In this method, the recovery period is much shorter. It enhances the production of the new layer of skin cells along with large amounts of collagen and elastin.
They are both exfoliation and skin rejuvenation treatments. Proper medical advice prior to performing this cosmetic procedure can help you with choosing the right treatment. The effectiveness of each method varies according to the type of skin and skin lesions.

Stages of dermabrasion:
Before starting the treatment, the target area is cleaned and disinfected. Then the skin is locally anesthetized. Sedatives may also be used depending on the situation. Dermabrasion is a relatively invasive procedure in which a doctor exfoliates the skin with a rotating motor device with an abrasive head called a dermabrator. This is usually done on the skin of the face. This method is relatively fast and depending on the extent of the lesion, each session takes about 30-60 minutes.
Steps to perform microdermabrasion:
In microdermabrasion, the use of anesthetics is not necessary. This method, powder-like crystalline particles (aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate) are rubbed on the skin using a special device. In microdermabrasion, the recovery period is shorter and the results fully surface after 24 hours.
