Chemical peel or laser sun spot removal?

Both laser sun/age/liver spot removal and chemical peels are very popular cosmetic procedures that eliminate dark spots, fine lines, discoloration, enlarged pores and wrinkles. If you suffer from any of these problems, then you might be wondering which treatment is the better option for your skin.

Chemical peels are known to improve the overall texture of your skin and are classified as deep, medium and superficial. The depth of action is associated with clinical changes in the skin with the most change occurring with a deep peel. Keep in mind, the deeper the application, the greater the chance of complications and recovery time. The goal of the peel is to injure the skin to a certain point while stimulating the new skin growth underneath. This process is what improves the overall texture and appearance of the skin. There are many peels available in the market and should be performed under the supervision of a doctor. The VI Peel offers different products with different concentration levels, which ensures a client gets the appropriate application based on the skin condition and type.

Conversely, laser sun/age/liver spot removal targets the brown spots, medically known as solar lentigines. These sun-induced, flat spots that are mostly extra pigment deposition due to sun damage, respond well to laser treatments. A focused laser is delivered on the targeted area and the light is absorbed by the darkened pigments. This results in skin which will be more uniform in color, texture and appearance.

The good news is that chemical peels can be combined with other laser treatments such as sun/age/liver spot removal to optimize the outcomes and enhance the patients overall satisfaction. Both treatments combined will result in softer lines, clearer skin, and the reduction of scars, freckles, spots and wrinkles.
