Facial Resurfacing Treatments

For the last forty years, facial resurfacing treatments have become more and more popular as we attempt to reduce wrinkles produced by sun damage and aging. When skin has been damaged to the extent that topical creams; exfoliating treatments, such as microdermabrasion; and mild chemical peels are of little benefit, more aggressive measures are necessary to mitigate the damage and restore a more youthful appearance. The modalities used at QnA Cosmetic Surgery for facial resurfacing fall into two basic groups: chemical peels using TCA (trichloroacetic acid) and laser resurfacing.

A Profound and Positive Result

There are varied facial resurfacing techniques, and which one is best for a particular person depends upon the amount of wrinkling and sun damage present and the level of post-procedure inflammation and downtime acceptable. Generally speaking, a more aggressive resurfacing requiring more inflammation and downtime will yield better results after one session than a milder method with faster healing. In other words, the more the insult, the more reaction, and therefore the more profound and positive will be the result.
