Chemical peel, laser resurfacing and dermabrasion are most common exfoliating procedures making facial skin look younger and refreshed. Complexion rejuvenation helps to get rid of age spots, lines and wrinkles, visible blood vessels. It improves skin tone and texture as well.
Possible benefits are as follows:
- wrinkles reduction
- sun spots elimination
- loose skin tightening
- even skin tone
- blotchiness removal
- no damaged blood vessels
Most popular rejuvenating peeling procedures are as follows:
Chemical peel implies application of strong chemicals that digest top epidermis layer on the face, neck or hands. Exposed skin layer gains fresh and blemish-free looks over time. Regular peel contributes to removal of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, crow’s feet and coloration defects.
You may choose among chemical peels according to the wanted exfoliation depth. Superficial, shallow peels improve skin looks but don’t help with scars and wrinkles. Deeper peel will have more lasting outcomes, but it is painful and requires time for recovery.
Some treatments are to be avoided if chemical peel is been held.
Laser skin resurfacing (laser peel)
Successfully treats wrinkles, scars from acne and chicken pox, blemishes provoked by aging or sun exposure. This procedure implies laser intrusion. Laser breaks flawed dermis cells to expose younger ones. Laser resurfacing is extremely accurate treatment. Normally, it doesn’t cause pain or bleeding and lasts 30-60 minutes. Though, laser resurfacing may lead to reddening, crusting, itching or oozing. Professionals use creams and bandages to keep treated areas moist.
Dermabrasion (i.e. surgical skin planning) helps to eliminate lines and wrinkles, tattoos, blemishes from sun damage, broken blood vessels, scars from acne and pre-cancerous lesions. Upper skin layer is been rubbed down to evener, clearer layer. Treated area is cleaned and processed with a freezing agent performing an anesthetic role in advance. Afterwards, upper skin layer along with unwanted defects is been removed with the help of an abrasive wheel or brush. Procedure has minimal risks and recovery period (up to10 days). Both prescription and over-the-counter treatments may be used to relieve pain and lessen discomfort feeling.
Unprofessional dermabrasion, chemical peel or laser resurfacing procedures may lead to scarring or pigmentation alterations. Microdermabration is free of mentioned risks but has inferior performance and is feeble against deep acne scars, wrinkling, age spots and stretch marks. Deep skin resurfacing, laser rejuvenation, dermabrasion and strong chemical peels are capable of removing extensive skin imperfections, but have more risks and side effects.
