Winter is the best time for skin resurfacing, whether by laser, chemical peel or dermabrasion. This is because no matter what technique is used for resurfacing skin, the new tender skin which is exposed will be pink and/or red for a varying amount of time and this fresh skin when exposed to the sun especially in the summer months can become brown or hyperpigmented.
There are three types of resurfacing: Laser Resurfacing (laserbrasion), Peel Resurfacing (chemical peels) and Dermabrasion. At the Double Bay Day Surgery and t he Cosmetic and Restorative Surgery Clinic, we use all of these techniques, in order to improve skin which has usually been damaged by the sun. In fact, with expertise all these techniques can be combined and when used appropriately can address a myriad of problems. .
