Chemical Peels and Dermabrasion

Chemical peels are nonsurgical procedures that can be used to correct facial wrinkling and can improve abnormal skin coloration. It is especially helpful around the lips and eyes. Dermabrasion is another type of resurfacing procedure. The upper layers of skin are removed with the use of an electric burr. This procedure is especially well suited to facial scars resulting from prior injury or acne. It can also improve lip and chin wrinkles or be used to refine surgical scars after reconstructive surgery.
