I was wondering because I'm starting to get wrinkles and I'm wondering if I should visit the spa or a dermatologist. Anyone able to speak from personal experience?

Work on your great inner beauty.

PintoBean said:Microdermabrasion helps me. I try to go annually around my birthday. I'm a few months late his year . The exfoliation combats the winter ashiness. I had it done once at the dermatologist six months before my wedding. Since then I've gone to Nordstroms spa. The last couple of times I've done an on the spot treatment. It's shorter like a half hour versus an hour. They cut some of the extras like a hand massage with lotion, but the same amount of time is spent sandblasting my face.
I have eczema, so I try to avoid chemicals. I'd rather a physical exfoliation lolol. For some reason though, no flare ups occur on my face (I hope I didn't just jinx myself).
My DH sucks at moisturizing. When he moisturizes (we have him using fractionated coconut oil head to toe now - one bottle head to toe he can handle. Lolol), his lines are less prominent. We also use a humidifier in the bedroom in the winter. That definitely helps his face as well.
Do you do yoga? I swear, when I used to do yoga, my instructor was 44 going on 28. I was convinced that all those moves where her head was below her heart ...all that blood rushing to her face gave her that ridiculous skin

Retin a helps my skin.
I think facials and masks are very enjoyable and may make your skin temporarily nicer such as for going to a particular occasion but don't have any long term effects on wrinkles.
