Facial Treatments: Differences between Chemical Peels, Microneedling and Microdermabrasion

Facial treatments are highly recommended for the multiple benefits they provide to the facial skin. Some of the most commonly used treatments are: Chemical Peels, Microneedling and Microdermabrasion. Each of them offers unique benefits and they are indicated to treat different skin problems.

While we know that taking care of facial skin is essential, because over time it loses proteins, collagen and elastin, which causes the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes and fine lines.

But you may be wondering… Which is the ideal treatment? It’s time to know the differences between these three major facial procedures: Chemical Peels, Microneedling and Microdermabrasion.

Peelings Químicos


  • Chemical Peels involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate and remove damaged outer layers.
  • Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, involves the use of a device with very small needles to create controlled microperforations in the skin.
  • Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that uses a device with an abrasive tip to exfoliate the surface layers of the skin.


  • Chemical Peels are effective in treating problems such as acne, fine wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin texture.
  • Microneedling stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which improves skin firmness and elasticity. In addition, it is effective in treating fine lines, hyperpigmentation and skin texture.

Microdermabrasion is effective in treating dull skin, sun spots, fine lines and superficial scars. It helps remove dead skin cells, improve texture and stimulate cell regeneration.



  • Chemical peels require recovery time, as the skin may experience redness, flaking and temporary sensitivity after treatment.
  • Microneedling requires several sessions for optimal results and generally has a shorter recovery time compared to chemical peels.
  • Microdermabrasion is a gentle treatment that generally does not require recovery time, although several sessions may be necessary to achieve optimal results.

Chemical Peels, Microneedling and Microdermabrasion are three facial procedures that have in common improving the appearance of the skin. However, each has its own characteristics and benefits. It should be noted that the choice of them will depend on the specific needs of the skin and the result you want to achieve. 

The most important thing to do if you are considering any of these procedures is to consult with a trained medical professional to determine which treatment is right for you. At Mendoza Plastic Surgery 4 we are waiting for you to look bright and youthful.
