What to Expect from Superficial Skin Treatments

“Surface-repair”, or superficial skin treatments, can enhance your appearance and give your skin a smoother, fresher look, but won’t remove deep scars and significant wrinkles. These treatments should not be thought of as mini-facelifts. Mild TCA, alpha hydroxy peels and retionol treatments offer less dramatic results than surgical approaches like dermabrasion or high percentage chemical peels and lasers. However, these non-surgical, superficial skin treatment options are a great start to overall skin improvement with less downtime and risks, and are very good for preventative measures.

Before you decide to have a skin-rejuvenating treatment of any type, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your skin care professional, dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Schedule a complimentary consultation with Cheryl Ann.
