Microdermabrasion is different. I have had both, and though I prefer microdermabrasion, chemical peels are pretty awesome. Your face does go all red and kind of gross for like, a day, but after that it looks pretty amazing.
defs prefer microdermabrasion though - it tingles and then afterwards your face looks really dewy and a bit red, but so smooth and great. I used to get them every few months, and I only got a peel once.
Talk to your skin specialist and see what they recommend though.
Think about how many clowns can pile into one of those little cars. That's a synonym.
