Laser resurfacing or chemical peeling: which is better to choose for maximum results. For many years in a row, chemical peels have been famous for their excellent action and results.

What is better to choose, grinding or peeling, it’s up to you. If you find it difficult to choose – specialists with extensive experience at the Coolaser Clinic will be happy to answer all your questions.
Laser resurfacing and chemical peeling. What are the similarities?
Both methods have one focus on the result – the removal of the keratinized layer of the epidermis (dead cells) and the stimulation of the main processes.
Why is removing dead cells from the skin’s surface so important? It’s simple. In order for cells to actively renew themselves, they should not have obstacles. The better the epidermis is cleansed from the stratum corneum, the less inflammation and the better our skin is renewed.
Any chemical peel is divided into three categories: superficial, medium and deep. Each of them is aimed at a specific layer of the dermis.
Depending on the skin type of the patient, the appropriate active ingredient is used (usually alkali or acid):
- sensitive – glycolic acid
- dry – milk peeling
- for inflammation – salicylic acid
- fatty – retinoic acid
In fact, any chemical peel is a dosed burn of the epidermis. After it heals, the cells are renewed, the skin looks soft and healthy again.
Benefits of chemical peels

Time: 30-60 minutes
Number of sessions: individually, depending on the type of skin. On average, 5-6 procedures.
Effect duration: individually
Risks of complications: rather high risks when using medium and deep peels, severe pain during the procedure.
Laser face resurfacing or laser peeling is a deep cleansing that can be compared to a medium and deep chemical peeling.
Laser resurfacing or laser peeling is gentler. Its action is based on the vaporization process. That is, dead skin cells are literally evaporated from the surface of the epidermis.
The laser wave, whose length and depth are fully programmed and controlled by the device, treats the skin area. There is water inside every cell, it completely absorbs this energy.
Why is laser face resurfacing sometimes called fractional? After laser treatment, tiny dots – fractions can remain on the epidermis. By the name of these points, laser fractional resurfacing occurs.
