And would you like the skinny on my experience with microderm? I worked at a spa, and for about a year and a half I got it for free! The aesthetician was fantastic but for me it was a bit too much. (A bit like this outfit, LOL!) The concept of removing the dead skin cells is a sound one--but as I don't have any skin concerns (i.e. acne, rosacia ), a gycolic peel works just fine for me. And microderm is expensive. I would recommend the lesser of the 2 extremes, the peels, before going for the full monty.
