Easy Laser Peel: Peeling off the Wrinkles Layer by Layer

By: rsbombard
Laser resurfacing, also known as "laser peels", is a way of the removing the wrinkles from the face. A carbon dioxide (CO2) laser is used in this process. Less bleeding, bruising and post-operative discomforts are a few features of the laser resurfacing technique.

Depending on the facial scars and the uneven pigmentation, the laser can be applied on the face or on the specific areas. The laser technique is best for removing the fine lines near the mouth and the eyes.

Unlike other non-surgical cosmetic processes, the laser peel is generally for the outpatients and when it is combined with similar other surgical procedures, a hospitalization is required. The sole laser resurfacing technique is an hour-long process.

A beam of laser is applied to the damaged layers of the facial skin and it vaporizes the specific layer at a regulated level of penetration.

The outer layer of the damaged skin is removed. After that, new cells will form in the healing process. This new skin is smoothing in effect with shines and youthful luster.

The laser technique has two parts: medium level resurfacing and deeper resurfacing. Medium laser peel involves applying limited laser to the epidermis and papillary dermis, while in case of the deeper laser peel the outer layer of the reticulas dermis is removed.

This process does have certain disadvantages also. Your skin will be extremely sensitive to the sun in the first 2 to 4 weeks of the healing process; your skin would be pink or red that may persist for up to 6 months, after which your original pigmentation would return, but the effect is long lasting after the treatment. You can enjoy the wrinkle free skin for a considerable period.

This method is mostly opted one by the surgeons, though it may not be for each patient. Similar other techniques like dermabrasion or chemical peel can be effectively applied.

Now one possible question may come to your mind. Who is the best candidate for laser resurfacing?

Those having the olive skin, brown skin or black skin are very much prone to have a change in the pigmentation. It hardly matters for them which laser peeling method is applied to them. Therefore, this is the vital task to identify your skin first and the surgeons usually do this at the outset. Those with the skin infections also are not to be subjected to laser peels.

As such, the laser resurfacing can be frequented for the sake of your skin rejuvenation. Just have it on your crumpled skin and get yourself reinstated.
