English term or phrase:skin resurfacing
This term is used in conjunction with the treatment of wrinkles, furrows, and rhytids which is accomplished by removing the epidermis and is used to describe a surgical instrument as well as the dermatological treatment.
Explanation: To me this would come closer to the context the term is used in (cosmetical skin treatment, as I presume). This German term incorporates also the actual removing of skin, not only the smoothing of wrinkles.
