Chemical resurfacing treatments are treatments that mildly stimulate the production of new, healthy facial cells to help improve the appearance of the skin. Chemical resurfacing treatments work through the skin from the top-down, resulting in immediate surface exfoliation.
Types of chemical resurfacing treatments:
During a chemical peel, an exfoliant acid is applied to the thicker areas of the skin like the chin, nose and cheeks, then to the thinner areas like around the eyes and mouth. After the chemical peel, a cool saline compress will be used to remove any remaining exfoliant.
