Laser Peel Rockford Barrington Schaumburg Area
The laser peel utilizes both the laser and a chemical peel. A laser peel or lasabrasion uses the laser to remove your outer layer of skin, called the epidermis. It simultaneously heats the underlying skin, called the dermis.
This action works to stimulate growth of new collagen fibers. As the treated area heals, the new skin that forms is smoother and firmer.
Glycolic acid peels contain alpha hydroxy acid, also known as AHA. The AHA is a natural acid that is found in sugar cane, cantaloupe, raw grapes and pineapple. The 30 percent glycolic acid peels are nontoxic and have a good safety history. However, if you have rosacea, darkly pigmented skin, or have allergies to any of the above listed ingredients the glycolic may not be for you.
• Fine lines or wrinkles around or under your eyes, forehead or mouth
• Improve your complexion if you have yellowish or grayish skin tone
• Kill the bacteria that causes acne or breakout prone skin
• Refine or minimize pore size
After care recommendations:
Do not use any products that contain glycolic acid or Retin-A. These products will further irritate your skin. Clean your skin with a brand of gentle cleanser and use a gentle moisturizer that does not contain fragrance for at least three days after the procedure.
