Chemical Peels They are done by a dermatologist in an operation. When performing a chemical peel the doctor will use either alpha hydroxyl acid or beta hydroxyl acids in order to remove the top layer of epidermis (also known as the stratum corneum). The epidermis is a layer of skin that has fat cells, which help keep the skin firm. The epidermis is also an elastin-like layer known as collagen that helps keep the skin looking young. The skin is more wrinkled and more susceptible to damage when layers are removed.

Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a different procedure that a cosmetic dermatologist is able to perform. This process removes small crystals from the epidermis (top layer) of the skin. These crystals can help reduce wrinkles and fine lines. The epidermis appears less dull and tight and hair growth is better. This treatment can dramatically improve the appearance and texture of your skin when it’s done frequently.

Laser therapy makes use of lasers to dry the skin and remove the particular excess oil and bacteria from the skin’s surface. The skin is left more smooth and clear. Patients with severe acne or oily skin should consider laser therapy. In certain patients, overuse of laser treatment can cause the actual growth of acne.
