Chemical Skin Peeling & Microdremabrasion

I would like to peel away skin to give it an even tone & get rid of some layers of sun damaged skin. I have smile wrinkles, & in between my eyebrows I have a pretty good wrinkle line. Also a problem with my pores which are showing more theses days. Why do pores become enlarged?
I have seen over the counter low strength chemical peeling kits, as well as the microdermabrasion kits all available by l'oreal or oil of olay or neutragena....
Question........Does anybody have feedback on any of these over the counter products if these actually do the job?
I don't want products that just help the "appearance" or just "hide" the above skin problems I have. I want to buy a working product.
Might I need to go to see a dermatologist for stronger working ingredients?
I'm a 31 yr old mom/wife who appreciates all your input in advance!! :d

Enlarge Pores

i tried neutrogena microdemabrasion kit. Hmmm... It is an ok product. After treatment, my skin is more radiance. It just basically polish your skin and get rid some of the dead skin. If you want to get rid of the wrinkles and sun damaged skin, don't waste your money on neutrogena. It's better you go see a dermatologist first.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These products are not much helpful.
Its better to consult dermatologist for laser therapy or dermabrasion.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
