Appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on facial skin is inevitable, especially for those who do not follow a regular skin care regimen. The gradual changes to the skin now only end up damaging the beauty of a person, but also reduce self-confidence and self-esteem.
In addition to wrinkles and fine lines, scars and blotches from acne and discoloured skin due to an exposure to sun are some of the reasons that impact the beauty of an individual. These factors can, in fact, affect any age group and trigger the need for skin rejuvenation.
Laser peel is one such popular procedure opted by hundreds of people each year at Athena Skin & Laser Clinic in Chandigarh. This procedure not only helps provide a fresher and younger look to the skin by working on wrinkles, fine lines, blotches, acne scars and discoloured skin.
How does laser peel work?
Laser peel is an old technique used for skin rejuvenation. It is a skin laser therapy that makes use of light beams to “peel” the upper layer of the skin called epidermis.
The beam of laser applied during the procedure produces the effect of a peel, thus removing the scars, blemishes and blotches. There is a marked reduction in the number of wrinkles and fine lines as well.
In addition, laser peel produces a skin tightening effect since the upper damaged layer of the skin is peeled away. The new epidermal cells give a fresher and younger look to the skin.
The beam of laser used during the procedure only penetrates just the outermost layer of the skin. It does not affect the inner dermal layers. This is the reason why this procedure is used to treat just less severe scars, wrinkles, fine lines and skin discolouration.
Who can undergo laser peel?
People with one or a combination of the following conditions can opt for this procedure:
- Wrinkles and fine lines around eyes and mouth
- Sun damages skin
- Skin discolouration
- Acne scars and pits
- Blotches and blemishes
Laser peel is not suitable for people with very dark skin and active acne. In addition, one should not expect stretch marks to be treated with the help of laser peel.
Laser peel is an outpatient procedure that lasts over a period of 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the area of the skin to be treated.
How much time does it take for the skin to heal completely?
Laser peel works by removing the outermost layer of the skin. As a result, you can expect to see some level of redness, which will persist until the removed layer is replaced by new skin cells.
It may take anywhere between one and two weeks for new epidermal cells to form and cover the exposed skin surface. You can expect to witness fresh, tightened and younger looking skin surface once the new skin cells are formed.
