Skin Resurfacing

The skin has incredible healing abilities. It constantly renews itself, replacing the damaged surface with new skin cells. This efficient, remarkable process allows your skin to repair when external trauma or conditions like acne cause damage. However, your skin can’t always keep up with the daily onslaught of sun damage and aging. Dead skin cells and debris eventually build up, clogging your pores and dulling your complexion.

That’s where skin resurfacing treatments come in to give your skin a boost. By clearing away the top layers of damage with deep exfoliation, these treatments revitalize your complexion and optimize your skin’s healing process. Rapaport Plastic Surgery offers multiple skin rejuvenation options that can help accomplish this. Two of our most popular resurfacing treatments are dermaplaning and microdermabrasion, which can reduce peach fuzz, blackheads, fine lines, and uneven skin texture.

During this lunchbreak procedure, your provider will carefully scrape a scalpel over your skin, removing vellus hair and the top layer of skin cells. This removes any build-up clogging your pores, minimizing damage and brightening your complexion. Dermaplaning is one of the gentlest skin resurfacing options.

Facials like DiamondGlow® use diamond-tipped wands to exfoliate your skin. The abrasive tip gently rubs away damaged surface layers and build-up, leaving you with a brighter, clearer complexion. Though beneficial on its own, we often combine microdermabrasion with chemical peels or other treatments for optimal results. HydraFacial® can manually and chemically exfoliate the skin during treatment.

Our team performs several laser treatments with the most advanced technology, including devices like Laser Genesis, Clear + Brilliant®, and Coolpeel. The laser energy resurfaces the skin to clear away damage and build-up, while its heat stimulates a healing response in the dermis for increased collagen production.

Chemical peels, like ViPeel,  use chemical solutions to cause the skin to peel. A healthy new complexion is revealed as the dull, damaged surface flakes away. Depending on the patient’s goals and condition, chemical peels can be light, medium, or deep.
