Choosing the most appropriate treatment or combination of treatments can be confusing. Our dedicated staff of Nurses and Estheticians are happy to evaluate your skin, your goals, and your situation to determine the best strategy to help you have the glowing, smooth skin you’ve always wanted.
There are different types of chemical peels. You may have used mild chemical peels at home. Moderate or medium chemical peels go a bit deeper into your skin and are likely to leave you particularly sensitive to the sun.
Deeper chemical peels require some recovery time, as they reach the deepest layers of your skin. You may need an anesthetic during the peel and have some peeling and crusting afterward. The staff at Laser Image Company provides thorough aftercare instructions so you’ll be as comfortable as possible as you recover. The benefits of chemical peels include a brighter, fresher-looking complexion including the softening of fine lines and pigmentation. The new skin that emerges following the peel will appear less scarred and more even in tone.
Often, the problem with acne scars is more about the discoloration than the skin texture or pitting. Laser Genesis™ is a gentle laser treatment that helps get rid of redness in your skin. It’s also often recommended for people who have rosacea, but it benefits those with acne scarring as well.
Laser Genesis is a non-ablative laser, which means it uses heat to stimulate your skin to produce collagen, rather than removing layers of your skin as an ablative laser does. The collagen production created from the procedure helps to smooth and tighten your skin. Another benefit of Laser Genesis treatments is that they are quick. A treatment takes only about 30 minutes, putting it in “lunch break” territory, and it doesn’t require recovery time. You resume your normal daily activities immediately with a glow to your skin.
You won’t likely feel uncomfortable — some people enjoy the gentle warming sensation! I really love the way it feels! You will need a series of laser treatments in combination with chemical peels to obtain optimal results. You’ll be able to tell a difference in your skin right away and as your body produces collagen it will continue to improve.
