The currently available methods for resurfacing will be addressed in this article, which has been divided into three areas of focus: chemical peels, lasers, and dermabrasion. Emphasis will be placed on chemical peels, a technique with a long history that provides a very reliable method of resurfacing and that every facial plastic surgeon should be familiar with.
