Common Questions About Laser Peels
What will a Laser Peel treat?
A laser peel, which is a form of laser skin resurfacing performed by Dr. Ellen, can work to diminish many signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles as well as common skin issues like hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and other problems in skin coloration.
How is the Laser Peel treatment conducted?
The treatment for a laser peel is relatively short and can be completed in under an hour. After your skin has been cleansed, the laser will be passed over the treatment site using a handpiece. The laser's energy will target the pigment in your skin, warming it. This will stimulate the healing reaction which produces more even skin tone and appearance.
How comfortable is the Laser Peel?
Though the word laser may make you think of strong heat, the feeling of the laser targeting the pigment in your skin is minimal. Many patients experience a tingling of the skin, but do not require an anesthetic for treatment.
What will happen after my Laser Peel treatment?
Following your laser peel, you should be able to return to your normal routine, one of the benefits of this skin resurfacing treatment. Most side effects of your laser peel will be extremely minimal, but may include some redness. This can usually be concealed with makeup. As your skin reacts to the laser peel, you will begin to see the skin issues you previously struggled with begin to diminish.
How many treatments will I need to correct my skin ailments?
For some patients with minimal skin issues, one laser peel may be enough for treatment. However, those with more severe skin issues may need more than one treatment. Be sure to discuss your aesthetic goals with Dr. Ellen as she will be able to help draft a treatment plan with you.
