Resurfacing in Austin

Many things become better as we age and learn about life. Sadly, our skin is not usually one of the things we would say becomes better. Let me rephrase, most likely your skin became better after you exited the teenage years but most likely has not gotten better very many times since then. While the first advice that should be given is to take the very best care of your skin as you can, we understand that sometimes that’s just not enough. As you age and your skin needs additional attention to bring it back to its beautiful self, there are options available. One of those options is resurfacing.

Resurfacing is a procedure used to treat several different skin imperfections. Static wrinkles that do not change as you move your face; dynamic wrinkles that develop because of different facial expressions; scars from acne or other injuries; discoloration from the sun such as melasma or sun spots; and blood vessels that are visible on the face or affect coloration are all issues that can be solved through skin resurfacing at Steiner Ranch Dermatology in Austin.

Resurfacing techniques include chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and dermabrasion, each with different levels of penetration and intensity.

However, the idea behind each technique is the same: remove the top layer of weathered, damaged skin to reveal the new, clearer skin underneath. Your lower layer of skin is tighter, so wrinkles disappear. It is also healthier, so scars will be lighter and pigment is more even.
