Laser skin resurfacing can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and help minimize scarring. It is especially good for treatment of fine lines around the eyes.
There is usually down time with this also, depending on the areas being treated and the depth of the treatment.
A chemical peel is used to rejuvenate facial skin. Chemical peels can help improve fine lines, wrinkles, rough skin, and pigment changes frequently seen with aging and sun damage. They are particularly effective in treating uneven skin tones and pigment abnormalities. Chemical peels will NOT treat deep lines, sagging skin, or broken capillaries. They are not a substitute for surgery. Dr. Garrison does a TCA (tricholoacetic acid) peel which is deeper, more invasive, and does require some down time.
