Skin Resurfacing/ Chemical Peel, C02 Laser

Individuals with facial skin left scarred by acne, accidents or previous surgery can benefit from skin resurfacing. Skin resurfacing procedures can also help smooth out fine facial wrinkles, such as those around the mouth or to remove pre-cancerous growths called keratoses.

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. Laser, which is the latest technique, removes superficial skin by evaporating it. Each one of these techniques has advantages and disadvantages. 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 Trichloroacidic 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.
