Laser Peel--Offering You A Pretty Complexion
In the area of skin rejuvenation, laser peel is a big breakthrough. It is a completely new method of resurfacing and replenishing the skin.
On the basis of the specific conditions of the procedure, the doctor may perform laser peel by using only a topical anesthetic which is a cream has the function of numbing the skin's surface. In general, you have to wait some time before the actual procedure begins, as the anesthetic will work after a short time. In the case of deeper peels, the doctor may inject the treated area of your body with a local anesthetic. You may have an oral sedative injection to relax yourself. In some cases, IV sedation or even general anesthesia may be given on your body.
In the procedure of laser peel, the doctor will cleanse the treated area of your skin and mark or cover any areas that will not be treated. Typically, you will be required to wear some sort of barrier to protect the eyes in the process of the procedure. The doctor will apply a special gel substance on the skin to make the device move smoothly over the skin and increase the laser energy's conductivity.
This procedure uses an ablative laser called Co2 laser to remove the upper layers of damaged skin. The doctor holds a wand-like device and moves it over the treated areas. The device emits a beam of light, vaporizing the top layers of the treated skin in a scientific way. After the procedure of laser peel, the doctor will apply some sort of cooling preparation on the treated skin so as to reduce swelling and discomfort. In addition, some sort of protective barrier is also applied to your skin.
To become an ideal candidate for laser peel, you have to meet two main requirements. To begin with, you should be a light-skinned non-smoker in good health and have a positive attitude and realistic expectations toward the procedure. And then, you should not suffer from any active skin infections like acne. If you take or have taken certain medications including Accutane and some steroids within the previous 18 months, the procedure is not suitable for you. If you suffer unusual scarring like keloids, you are also not a good candidate.
