Definition - What does Laser Peel mean?
A laser peel, also called laser skin resurfacing, laser vaporization and lasabrasion, aims to smooth wrinkles and fine lines, scars and blemishes. The development of laser technology allows for better control in laser peel, offering remarkable precision even in more sensitive areas. Laser peel can also address issues such as liver spots, warts, birthmarks or enlarged pores.
In addition, it can improve the appearance of non-responsive skin after a facelift, aged or sun-damaged skin and balance yellowish or grayish skin tones.
TheConsultation explains Laser Peel
Laser peel, similar to other laser treatments, uses short, concentrated pulsating beams of light. Through this method, the damaged skin is gradually removed one layer at a time. The precision of laser peel offers more safety including lower risk of discolorations, unlike laser acne scar removal.
The laser beam used in laser peel removes the outer layer of skin, heating at the same time the deeper layers. This method stimulates the production of new collagen. During the healing process, smoother and tighter skin is formed. However, laser peel is not suitable for people who have active acne, very dark skin tone, deep wrinkles or significant skin relaxation.
