Individuals with facial scarred skin from acne, accidents, or previous surgery may benefit from skin resurfacing. Skin resurfacing procedures may also help smooth out fine facial wrinkles.
There are many methods available for skin resurfacing. Chemical peels use a caustic solution to remove the undesirable layer of skin, while dermabrasion scrapes them away. During your initial consultation, we will evaluate your physical condition and needs to recommend the best option for you.
Chemical peels vary depending on the type of solution used. All of the solutions dissolve the top layer of skin by a chemical reaction. Phenol, which is one of the oldest solutions used, is very effective in removing moderately deep wrinkles. TCA, or Trichloroacetic acid, is a weaker acid, which is good for removing finer wrinkles. Its strength can be adjusted by changing its concentration. Fruit acids or hydroxy acids, such as Glycolic and lactic acid are generally weaker acids derived from the naturally available fruit acids. Hydroxy peels, when done in a very light fashion, are called micro-peels.
