Lasers VS Peels: Which is More Effective?

Are you planning on getting peel treatment but can’t decide on whether you will have a chemical peel or a laser peel. Both treatments promise similar effect on the skin. They can help you get rid of wrinkles, acne scarring and dark spots on your skin. There are good numbers of women that prefer on undergoing chemical peel while there are some that prefer on having the laser peel. If you are still unable to decide between laser treatments vs chemical peels then you need to check out the different pros and cons of the two kinds of treatment.

Depending on your budget and how much treatment you need on your skin there is surely that perfect one you can choose. You can also consider the suggestion of your trusted dermatologist to what method will be better for your skin condition.


Chemical Peels

If you choose chemical peels you will have years of long experience for this procedure. Just as long as you have an expert that is working on your face you will surely be happy with the result. Since it has been in the market for a number of years already there is a wide variety of chemical peel that you can choose from. This treatment is categorized in three different concentrations, it include light, medium and deep peels. Light peels are usually what most women consider as a lunchtime beauty fix since it will only take a little downtime and you are good to go. As for Medium peeling it will require longer healing and downtime since it will use a concentrated chemical on your skin. It will usually take seven or more days depending on how fast your skin can heal itself. As for deep peeling will require a longer downtime and healing compared with the other two categories and this is highly disfavored by most experts. Since there is a risk that scarring will occur or loss of skin pigmentation. The category of the peeling will depend on how severe the condition of your skin is. The dermatologist would know how much peeling you need to get that flawless look you always dream of having. Wrinkles, age spots and other skin blemishes will have a different level of damage on your skin. It is up to your doctor to determine how much peeling is necessary to reach that skin layer without damage. You also need to make sure that you follow the instructions that your dermatologist would suggest after you have gone through with the peeling process.

The disadvantage of chemical peeling is that it highly depends on the skills of the doctor or dermatologist in applying the chemical evenly on the skin. If they are unable to do that there is a good chance that you will end up with an uneven result and there is a good chance you will get scarring if they are unable to control just how deep the peel goes.


Laser Peels

With laser treatment skin peels you can enjoy having an accurate treatment since all the doctor needs to do is to calibrate the depth to the machine and the rest will be done by the laser equipment, these laser treatments are safe to all skin type. You can easily enjoy flawless looking skin with a healthy glow after the treatment. Because of all the advancement with the technology, there are a lot of new equipment that are coming out to make the laser peel treatment more effective and easy to handle. But it is still important that you undergo the treatment with a professional because they know exactly where the laser treatment zone is and they can easily follow it with their years of training and experience on the job. The laser treatment recovery time is another best thing about this procedure because compared with the chemical peeling it requires a lesser downtime or healing period. One of the major disadvantages of this procedure is its price. Because it can be costly compared with chemical peel but this is known to be more accurate compared with the other method of peeling. Therefore, the margin of error for this procedure is low to none compared with chemical peeling where there are a lot of things that could go wrong.

In conclusion, both methods have its advantages and disadvantages but offers almost similar results. With laser treatment, you can be sure of the result since the machine makes sure of its efficiency while the chemical peeling depends a lot on the skills of the dermatologist or doctor that is doing the procedure on you. There is a lot of unknown with the chemical peeling compared with the accurate laser treatment.
