Chemical Peels: A dermatologist will perform chemical peels in a treatment. The doctor will use alpha hydroxyl acids (or beta hydroxyl acids) to eliminate the epidermis’ outermost layer (also known by the stratum corneum). This skin layer is made up of fat cells that help keep the skin firm. The epidermis has an elastin-like layer which helps keep your skin looking youthful. The skin is more wrinkled and more prone to damage as the layers are taken off.

Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is another procedure that a cosmetic dermatologist can perform. The procedure removes tiny crystals in the epidermis (top covering) of the skin.
