Procedure Description

There are various skin resurfacing procedures including: Laser resurfacing, Chemical peels and Dermabrasion. The techniques for all treatments are quite different often with similar results.

Laser resurfacing utilizes a pulsed laser device to vaporize the superficial layers of the skin.
Chemical peels are liquid solutions applied to the skin that are available in light, medium and deep strengths.

Dermabrasion is a process that involves a surgical tool to mechanically remove layers of skin. Most of these procedures are done on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia with sedation. Some lighter resurfacing may not require any anesthesia.

Recuperation and Healing

With skin resurfacing procedures, patients will be sent home with specific written instructions. The affected areas are properly cleansed and treated with topical agents by the patient several times daily for about one week. Mild to moderate redness is normal for most skin resurfacing techniques and will fade gradually. It is imperative that the newly treated skin is not exposed to any sun until the physician approves. After complete healing a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher is recommended daily.
