Skin City uses two different methods for treating conditions on the skin’s surface:

  • Chemical peel. This is a controlled chemical burn of the top layers of your skin with trichloroacetic acid (TCA). It is used to smooth out fine wrinkles, sun damage and color abnormalities of the face.
  • Dermabrasion. A rapidly rotating instrument is used to “sand” the outer layers of the skin. It is most often used for acne scars but is also used to remove wrinkles, tattoos, skin lesions and melasma (blotchy brown spots that occur on the cheeks, temples or forehead).

Complete healing usually takes about three months with both of these procedures.
