Laser Skin Resurfacing vs. Chemical Peel Treatments - Which One Should You Choose?

A wide variety of skin conditions have met their match, thanks to chemical peels and laser skin treatments. Both treatments aim to reduce signs of aging and enhance your skin’s complexion, but is one better than the other?

Our laser facials in Vancouver have proved to be a fantastic wrinkle-zapper while leaving skin smooth and radiant. In the other corner, we got our best facials in downtown Vancouver that naturally rejuvenate and remove any impurities from your skin’s surface. So which is better for you? It all depends on what skin condition you’re targeting!

Dreaming of that flawless complexion? Start with a chemical peel!

Chemical peels are an amazing way to improve your skin’s overall appearance and target issues like acne, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. This facial begins with an indulgent ozone steaming which purifies and oxygenates the skin. Through the warmth of the steam, pores open and release any dirt, traces of leftover makeup, environmental toxins, and impurities that would otherwise remain stuck.

Essentially, it peels the first layer of your skin, removing dead skin cells, so that new cells can replace them, giving you that glow you’ve been searching for. If you’re worried about a chemical peel being too harsh, especially if you have sensitive skin, consider that it comes in three different levels – mild, medium and deep – so you can tailor your peel to your skin type.

If you’re looking to remove impurities on a budget, choose a chemical peel! You can get amazing results, without having to worry about breaking the bank. You will, however, have to have frequent treatments to see a long-term improvement in your skin’s texture and complexion.

Yearning to look a decade younger? Choose a laser skin resurfacing treatment!

Laser Skin Resurfacing

A laser peel is a treatment that uses lasers to remove the outer layers of the skin and heat the underlying layer to boost collagen levels.

The treatment vaporizes layers of skin by delivering rapid pulses of energy to the treatment area. When these layers are shed, your skin will have a higher chance of getting smoother, and firmer skin to take shape. While the term ‘laser skin resurfacing’ might sound a bit harsh, we can assure you it’s a safe and effective way to better skin, without any damage to your complexion.

The best part? There’s no recovery time and you can see the results within one week of your treatment.  Keep in mind that laser skin treatments will have a higher price tag than a chemical peel.

What treatment should I choose?

The answer will depend on your current skin tone and texture, and the conditions you’re trying to improve. While chemical peels and laser treatments are amazing for improving your skin’s texture and rewind the hands of time, which one you choose will mostly depend on how chronic your skin condition is.

Chemical peels can be used to stimulate collagen production and contain antioxidants to improve skin’s texture, while laser treatments can be used to improve acne and acne scars.
