Laser Skin Peel In NYC
A laser peel, also known as a laser resurfacing or a laser skin peel, is a cosmetic procedure that uses laser technology to improve the appearance of the skin. The procedure involves using a laser to remove the outer layers of damaged skin, promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells.
There are two types of laser peels: ablative and non-ablative. Ablative laser peels remove the outer layers of skin, while non-ablative laser peels penetrate the skin without removing the outer layers.
Ablative laser peels are more aggressive and can be used to treat more severe skin conditions such as deep wrinkles, scars, and acne. Non-ablative laser peels are less aggressive and are used to treat milder skin conditions such as fine lines, sun damage, and uneven skin tone.
During the procedure, the patient may be given a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. The laser is then applied to the skin in a controlled manner, targeting the areas of concern. The length of the procedure can vary depending on the size of the treatment area.
After the procedure, the patient may experience some redness, dryness, and minor discomfort, which can be managed with topical ointments. It is important to avoid direct sunlight and to use a sunscreen with a high SPF to protect the treated area from further damage.
The results of a laser peel can be long-lasting, but they may not be permanent. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results.
