Skin resurfacing is used to improve visible signs of sun damage and natural aging. Resurfacing can be used to treat lines and wrinkles, acne scars, discolorations, and to correct minor skin imperfections. There are several procedures that can be used to resurface the face. Each procedure has its own unique way of improving skin’s appearance and in some cases, these procedures are used in combination.

Most people don’t realize that chemical peeling is actually a resurfacing procedure. Chemical peeling dates back to the days of Cleopatra and is one of the best ways to resurface the skin.

Generally speaking, you will be red and peel for several days after a chemical peel, but the results are well worth it.
