What are resurfacing treatments?

Resurfacing treatments are nonsurgical procedures that carefully remove the outer layers of your skin to expose the fresh, new skin underneath. As you age, the surface of your skin absorbs damage from sun exposure, makeup, lifestyle choices, and environmental factors.

This damage often results in fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and skin laxity, causing your skin to appear older and less vibrant.

What are the different types of resurfacing treatments?

Some of the most popular resurfacing treatments the Ross Dermatology team offers are:

Chemical peels

During a chemical peel, your specialist applies a solution to the surface of your skin, causing it to slough off over the coming days.

Laser skin resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing involves directing a focused beam of energy into your skin to carefully remove the top layer with precision. 


Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment that creates micro-injuries in the skin with hair-thin needles. This process triggers your body’s healing response, which creates new collagen fibers to repair the damage.

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy

Rather than a focused beam of light, IPL uses multiple wavelengths to treat broad areas of skin damage. IPL treatments are ideal for treating redness, rosacea, and sun damage.

Microdermabrasion and dermabrasion

Microdermabrasion and dermabrasion use handheld devices to exfoliate the top layer of skin. While microdermabrasion is a gentle treatment, dermabrasion is a more powerful procedure.
