Chemical Peels vs Laser Resurfacing

If you’re considering the benefits of a chemical peel versus laser skin resurfacing, we have the information you need to make a sound decision.

First, it’s important to know what each procedure entails:

Chemical Peels

One of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world, chemical peels are deemed safe by physicians for their predictable results and safeness. Chemical peels exfoliate the skin to remove dead, dull skin to reveal a fresher, smoother layer of skin. Chemical peels can help improve skin tone and color, as well as diminish acne scars.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing can help diminish imperfections of the skin by using a laser to smooth out skin for a more even look. The laser penetrates and removes the outer layers of skin to uncover layers not affected by fine lines, wrinkles, scars and hyperpigmentation. After the procedure, the new layer of skin can begin healing to rebuild new skin without the same imperfections. Treatment times range from a few minutes to an hour and a half, depending on the area of skin treated.

Chemical Peels or Laser Skin Rejuvenation: Which Is Right for You?

Doctors may advise patients to undergo either chemical peels or laser treatments based on a number of factors, including the patients’:

  • Skin tone and type
  • Thickness of skin
  • Desired result
  • Recovery time desired
  • Previous skin resurfacing procedures performed

Both chemical peels and laser skin rejuvenation treatments are performed as outpatient procedures with local or intravenous sedation.  

Following both chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing treatments, most patients will be kept on antibiotics with a mild pain medication. Antibiotic ointment applied on the skin’s surface will help speed the healing process. All patients should be advised to avoid direct sun exposure for extended periods following both chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing.
