are acid based, similar to a chemical peel, but use lower acid levels. Common resurfacing agents are lactic, glycolic and salicylic acid. Resurfacers can be used alone to brighten and exfoliate, or they can be used in combination with each other for a light peeling effect. Clients can expect a light to medium exfoliation that fades fine lines, blemishes, mild scarring, sun damage and other signs of aging. Resurfacers are a great opinion for those who would like to even out their skin tone/texture with little to no discomfort, or downtime.
