What is the difference between an aerator that pulls cores up and one that just punches holes in the ground?

One of the primary goals of aeration is to relieve compaction in your lawn. A core aerator does this by pulling out a core in the ground. A machine that punches holes in the ground, such as a spike aerator, actually adds more compression instead of relieving compaction.
