Getting Skin Resurfacing in Atlanta
Skin resurfacing does just that; resurfaces. It helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by resurfacing the skin. There are two types of skin resurfacing treatments: ablative (requires downtime) or non-ablative (requires no downtime), these procedures are effective to treat skin issues like sun damage, acne scarring and more.
This is the most aggressive skin resurfacing procedure we offer at WIFH. Fractional cO2 laser tightens the skin, reduces sun damage, shrinks pore sizes, diminishes acne scars, and smooths fine lines and wrinkles. The computer-guided laser creates “micro-wounds” in the skin, and the heat from the laser then enters the wounds to stimulate collagen production. In turn, the result is younger, more vibrant looking skin. There is downtime associated with this treatment and it is only safe for light skin types.
Chemical peels are great skin resurfacing option and are typically broken up into three categories: Superficial peels, Medium peels, and Deep peels. Superficial peels are peels that do not result in the sloughing of skin. Medium depth peels offer moderate peeling, and deep peels offer extensive skin peeling and are performed under sedation by a doctor. At WIFH, we offer the full line of VI Peels (medium depth), and SkinCeuticals peels (superficial). All of our peels are safe for all skin types and skin conditions.
Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing or exfoliating procedure that improves the appearance of sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, melasma, dull skin, large pores, hyperpigmentation, acne, and scarring. It is also the most affordable skin resurfacing procedure available and delivers immediate results. At WIFH, we use the latest technology, DermaSweep MD, to ensure you get the best results. This is a great way to get your skin to good health or as part of your skin maintenance regimen.

Skin Resurfacing FAQs
What is the difference between ablative and non-ablative skin resurfacing?
Ablative resurfacing procedures cut the skin, non-ablative procedures do not.
Is skin resurfacing painful?
Resurfacing procedures such as micro fractional CO2 will use a topical anesthetic to numb the skin, so the patient is comfortable during treatment. Non-ablative skin resurfacing typically does not require any numbing as they are well tolerated without.
Does skin resurfacing treat acne?
It can help keep your acne at bay. By resurfacing the skin, it exfoliates the dead skin allowing the pores to breath. This will prevent them from getting clogged and a break-out erupting.
