There can be several reasons why you are considering skin resurfacing treatments. These can include adverse effects on your skin caused by wrinkles or excessive pigmentation due to injury or exposure to the sun. Skin resurfacing involves removing the top layers of your skin so that the skin which is exposed is tighter and free from blemishes. There are several different ways of carrying out the treatment.

This type of skin resurfacing has been carried out for years, and is one of the most cost effective methods. This is because there is no need for expensive equipment, just the acid based products that are used to remove the outer layers of the skin. Results of chemical peels can be variable, and you should always have them carried out by a reputable professional.
Laser skin resurfacing
Over the years laser skin resurfacing has become more reliable. The original carbon dioxide lasers that were used could cause severe redness, as well as some scarring. Recovery periods could also be lengthy. The more recent introduction of first erbium, then fractional laser treatments has greatly reduced recovery times. Erbium lasers do not use as much thermal energy as carbon dioxide lasers. The downside of this is that the skin is not tightened as much. Fractional laser skin resurfacing involves the treatment of smaller areas of skin. The results can be less dramatic than those achieved with a carbon dioxide laser, but the risks and recovery period are less.
Plasma skin regeneration
In this type of non-laser skin resurfacing treatment energy delivered from plasma is used. Pulses are shot into the skin. The resulting heat energy helps to remove the outer layers of skin. This type of treatment can be provided at low energy level which greatly helps to reduce increased pigmentation, and high energy level which has been proven to be more successful in tightening skin. Recovery period depends on the level of treatment, and swelling and redness can occur.
