Skin Resurfacing Q & A
What is skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing therapies help you achieve younger-looking, smoother, refreshed skin. Nonsurgical skin resurfacing treatments repair damage from the sun, minimize acne scarring, and give your face an overall clearer, more even, beautiful skin tone. When years of sun exposure, weather, the natural aging process, and even genetics affects your complexion, skin resurfacing helps turn back the clock.
What are the different types of skin resurfacing treatments?

There are a variety of skin resurfacing treatments from which to choose and different levels of resurfacing, depending on your specific skin concerns, including:

    Microdermabrasion
    Dermabrasion
    Chemical peels
    Ablative and non-ablative laser therapies
    Microneedling
    Intense pulsed light (IPL) photorejuvenation

Each type of treatment has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Some skin resurfacing treatments require more than one session, while others may necessitate a few days of recovery time. It just depends on your skin issues and the outcome you hope to achieve.

It’s important to receive skin resurfacing treatments from a qualified, highly trained medical aesthetic professional. In fact, some treatments can only be performed by a board-certified physician like Dr. Fleming.
