Skin Resurfacing Miami
Skin Resurfacing is also known as skin peeling is used to erase the fine lines around the mouth, eyes, or the rest of the face. Common options include laser peels (e.g. Erbium, Fraxel ), chemical peels (e.g. Glycolic or TCA), as well as dermabrasion (micro or mechanical). If you live in Miami, FL call (305) 381-8837 for more information or to get started.
All resurfacing works the same way:
- The outer most layer (epidermis) of the wrinkly skin is ‘peeled’ away through heat, acid or also mechanical abrasion.
- Then, as new cells form during the healing process, a smoother, younger-looking skin appears.
- The deeper the peel, the more effective the wrinkle removal. But also, the deeper the peel, the longer the recovery and the more potential for skin lightening and sun-sensitivity.
What peel to use depends on patient specifics. Caveat: Accutane must be stopped 12-18 before any procedure or the skin will not heal. Keep in mind that many cheek lines are improved long term by a facelift. Dynamic expression lines around the eyes and forehead are treated with Botox. Fillers are always an option for most lines.
