Skin resurfacing refers to any procedure that removes the top layer of the skin so that it is replaced by new, healthier, smoother-looking skin. Resurfacing improves the health and appearance of skin that is scarred or damaged by acne, the sun, or chemicals. In microdermabrasion, tiny crystals polish the skin for an overall fresh, healthy-looking glow. Any skin resurfacing procedure achieves smoother, younger-looking skin with fewer wrinkles. Regular use of moisturizers and lotions containing lanolin, a natural oil, and no fragrances, helps to keep skin youthful. The effects of skin resurfacing can last from months to years.
