Most of our techniques rely on replicating the effect of a burn. This involves the production of a partial thickness injury – equivalent to a first- or second-degree burn. These techniques include laser, demabrasion and chemical peels. The beneficial effect is related to the depth of the injury: generally, deeper is better. However complications are also related to depth of injury. These include depigmentation, ulceration and scarring. A good result relies on a compromise whereby a safe depth of injury is produced and a good cosmetic outcome obtained.
