Are chemical peels or laser treatments safe for facial rejuvenation?

If you are looking to erase a few years off your face, there are an array of procedures available to rejuvenate your skin. Chemical peels and laser treatments are often used, but are they safe for facial rejuvenation.

Chemical peels
A chemical peel is a facial rejuvenation procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin, to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, and trigger cell renewal. There are different types of chemical peels ranging from mild to deep, and the choice will depend on the skin condition being treated, as well as your skin type. Chemical peels can treat concerns such as wrinkles, blemishes, and uneven skin tone.

Laser skin resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing involves the use of laser energy to correct skin conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and sunspots. It also tones and tightens the skin. The concentrated beams of laser energy target and eliminate damaged skin. Some laser technologies remove the entire outer epidermal layer of the skin, while others only treat specific areas.

Are chemical peel and laser treatments safe
Chemical peels and laser treatments are very safe as long as they are performed by a medical practitioner that is trained in the relevant skin rejuvenation techniques. Nevertheless, there are risks and side-effects associated with the procedures, and patients should understand that these treatments are not suitable for everyone. It is therefore advisable to have a skin evaluation done by a dermatologist, to determine your suitability for these and other skin rejuvenation treatments.
