Laser Facial Peeling

What is this?

Laser facial peeling is a treatment to reduce facial wrinkles and skin irregularities such as blemishes or acne scars.  There are better results in lighter skins with superficial wrinkles.

Procedure

Laser peeling treatments or chemical peels with TCA are helpful for improving overall skin tone and texture on skin with fine wrinkles or sun damage.  A chemical peel uses an applied solution to gently peel off the outermost layers of the skin.

Duration

A partial laser skin resurfacing procedure typically takes 30 to 45 minutes and a full treatment can take up to two hours.

Recovery

Following laser skin resurfacing, recovery takes roughly two weeks while the treated area heals and a new layer of healthy skin appears. Pinkness or redness of the skin usually lasts longer, sometimes persisting for up to several months.

Risks

Temporary skin acne, infection, scars, skin rash, allergies, skin irritation, or even a temporary hyperpigmentation.

Results

Results vary and is temporary since, with time, skin will get new wrinkles.
