Microdermabrasion or Glycopeel?

I have a voucher for my local beautician that needs to be used up this month. I am getting a facial as I have had them before from here at they are brilliant, skin looks amazing after.
But I think I will try one of the other treatments too, not sure whether to go for Glycopeel or Microdermabrasion. Has anyone had both, what are the differences, which would you recommend? I would be happy to do a session if I enjoy the treatment.

I have regular treatments of peels and microdermabrasions and having great results (usually best results are after a few sessions however) but I had a course of JUST microdermabrasions a few years ago and didnt see massive results, just softer skin. So I would say the peels if you are going for a standalone treatment grin

Watching with interest. Just showing first signs of aging.
I tried microdermabrasion for the first time a few weeks ago, didn't think much of it at the time and felt a bit ripped off, but my skins been really clear and glowy this month so it must have done something.
I'm keen on trying a peel for my finer wrinkles

I'm going to ask the beautician what she thinks. I'm up for getting a full course if it seems good, I like the sound of the peel...
