Lasers Vs. Chemical Peels

Despite the fact that both deep chemical peels and laser resurfacing treatments offer similar end results, it's important to talk to your doctor about your skin type and skin concerns to determine which treatment is best for you.

Both focus on regenerating the skin and improving fine lines, wrinkles and texture, but the way each works is different.

Laser resurfacing has a fixed penetration, and the effect is enhanced by the number of passes. On the other hand, the effect and penetration of chemical peels have to do with their concentration and the amount of time they are left in contact with the skin.

In both cases, it's extremely important that the person administering the treatment is well-versed and experienced; otherwise your skin could experience damage beyond the controlled injury intended by the procedures.
