Dark spots, wrinkles and fine lines are virtually impossible to avoid as you get older. These skin blemishes can drastically age your overall appearance. Since nobody wants to look older than their actual age, you need to take care of the problem before it gets even worse. One of the best ways to improve your overall skin tone and eliminate signs of aging is with a laser peel.
A laser peel is a cosmetic procedure designed to eliminate imperfections by resurfacing your skin. The laser is extremely versatile, so this procedure can be done on your face, neck, chest, hands or eyes. This versatility also means that almost anyone can qualify as a laser peel patient. If you are a healthy individual looking to make your skin look younger, then you are likely to be a good candidate for a laser peel.
The laser peel works by precisely removing the top layer of your skin. Most of our dead skin, age spots and wrinkles are located on the top layer of the epidermis, so the next layer of skin cells have a smoother and younger appearance. The laser is also able to activate collagen production in the skin, which will gradually make your skin tighter over time.
During this unique treatment, our skilled medical professional will use the laser to remove the top layer of skin on your problem areas. A bandage will likely be placed on the treatment area after your skin peel. You will have to start applying ointment to your skin one week after the laser peel to ensure proper healing. It will take approximately five to seven days to fully recover from the procedure. You can resume your normal activities at this time.
Since the laser peel only treats the top layer of your skin, the side effects are far less intense than other laser skin treatments. Red skin, swelling and some slight discomfort is the only side effects you should experience during the recovery process. It is well worth dealing with these minor side effects for a week to get the beautiful skin tone you have always desired.
There is simply no reason to live with unattractive skin when all of your problems are so easy to fix with one short laser peel treatment.
