What Is Skin Resurfacing? 

Skin resurfacing is a broad term for various techniques that renew the upper layers of the skin. These treatments, which include microneedling and chemical peels, work by removing older skin cells to promote the growth of new, healthier cells. This process helps to even out skin texture and tone and reduce the appearance of damage caused by aging and environmental factors. Each method varies slightly in application but shares the goal of enhancing the skin’s overall health and appearance.

What Can Skin Resurfacing Treat? 

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Skin resurfacing can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By stimulating the skin’s natural healing processes, these treatments restore collagen to support the surface of the skin and smooth out wrinkles.
  • Sun Damage: Sun-damaged skin can benefit from the rejuvenating effects of skin resurfacing. It can help diminish discoloration and restore softness to the skin by removing the outermost layers that have been affected.
  • Acne Scars: Acne scars are often a challenge to treat, but skin resurfacing techniques like microneedling can minimize their appearance. These treatments encourage collagen production and skin renewal, which help to heal scarred skin.
  • Uneven Skin Texture: Uneven skin texture can be smoothed and refined through skin resurfacing. Targeted removal of the outer skin layer evens out bumps, rough patches, and other textural irregularities, enhancing the skin’s overall feel and appearance.
  • Hyperpigmentation: For hyperpigmentation such as sun spots or melasma, certain skin resurfacing treatments can be appropriate. We are careful in the treatment of hyperpigmentation to offer solutions that actually make the hyperpigmentation better, and we can address more challenging cases with our treatments.

Our Skin Resurfacing Options

Chemical Peels

Our range of chemical peels includes the Jessner Peel, glycolic and salicylic acid peels, and TCA peels, each serving as an effective skin resurfacing treatment. The Jessner Peel combines citric acid, lactic acid, and salicylic acid to deeply exfoliate and improve skin tone and texture. Glycolic acid peels utilize a naturally derived acid to penetrate and rejuvenate skin deeply, while salicylic acid peels target acne-prone and oily skin types. TCA peels are designed for more intense rejuvenation, addressing severe discoloration, wrinkles, and sun damage.


Using the MDerma by Dermapen, our facial skin resurfacing service via microneedling offers a precision approach to stimulate the dermal layers of the skin. This device creates tiny punctures in the skin, initiating a natural healing process that boosts collagen production. The result is firmer, smoother skin that visibly reduces the appearance of scars and fine lines.

Frequently Asked Questions About Skin Resurfacing

The experience of discomfort during skin resurfacing treatments can vary depending on the technique used and individual pain tolerance. Most patients report feeling only mild discomfort, akin to a light sunburn, especially with treatments like chemical peels and microneedling. For more intense treatments, we can apply numbing creams and take other measures to ensure your comfort throughout the process.

Recovery from skin resurfacing treatment depends on the type of treatment you undergo. Lighter peels and some forms of microneedling typically require only a few days of downtime before normal activities can be resumed. With deeper chemical peels or more aggressive treatments, you may have a longer recovery time as your skin heals and rejuvenates.

Results can last anywhere from several months to a few years with skin resurfacing. The durability of results from resurfacing skin treatments also varies based on the specific treatment and your skin’s individual characteristics. To maintain the benefits, we may recommend a series of treatments and a tailored skincare regimen, including sun protection and periodic touch-ups.

Post-treatment skincare is vital to maximize the benefits of your skin resurfacing treatment and protect your rejuvenated skin. It is important to keep the treated area clean, moisturized, and protected from the sun. We will provide you with specific instructions, which include using gentle, non-irritating cleansers and hydrating serums that we recommend for your particular skin type.
