Facial Resurfacing Columbus
Why consider a facial resurfacing?
Years of exposure to the sunâ€™s rays and other environmental damage can take its toll on the skin â€“ sometimes even more than the effects of aging itself. Today there are several effective skin treatments to choose from to help restore your youthful glow.
What is a chemical peel procedure?
Several types of chemicals can be used to remove the superficial layers of the skin and even help remodel the deeper layers of skin. TCA, AHA (alpha hydroxy acids), phenol or other agents can all be used depending on each individualâ€™s needs. Most chemical peels at Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery can be performed without general anesthesia, but sometimes light sedation is used. Speaking with your board-certified plastic surgeon can help refine your goals and determine which type of chemical peel is right for you. Other topics you may want to discuss are tissue fillers (RestylaneÂ® and others), face lift surgery, or BOTOXÂ® Cosmetic.

Like all facial resurfacing procedures, recovery time varies depending on how deeply the skin needs to be altered.
