microdermabrasion_derma_blog_Feb09.jpg The buzz around town and globally is clearly Botox, anti-aging and facial fillers. The minimally-invasive procedures are a hit from Brazil to San Francisco. But many of us have forgotten about one of the best strategies for healthier, revitalized and younger skin - microdermabrasion and chemical peels. For years the two of these procedures were the hot studs in town, but now with Botox still thriving in a dwindling economy, its proving that it's here to stay.

Now there are new lasers that actually work beneath the skin with less pain and better recovery times."
