Laser resurfacing is used to treat wrinkles, acne, scarring and many other irregularities present on the skin. This is done using a device that lets out beams of light directed towards the desired area of improvement. These beams of lights remove skin layer by layer.
Chemical peels are used to treat many skin irregularities such as acne, as well as improve the overall appearance of the skin. Chemical peels are done by applying a chemical solution that causes the skin to exfoliate over a period of time and peel off, resulting in an improved appearance.
Microneedling is one of the least invasive skin treatments used to treat a vast number of skin irregularities. Microneedling is done using an automated pen containing ultra fine needle tips. This pen is glided along the desired area of improvement. The needles on the tip of the pen penetrate the skin at a controlled depth causing micro wounds to the skin. These micro wounds jump start the body’s natural healing process, accelerating the production of collagen and elastin.
Why Microneedling is Preferred Over Laser and Chemical Peels:
Microneedling is preferable rather than laser and chemical peels in many patients because it is safe for use on all skin types, all parts of the bod, and all times of life. In addition, the downtime for microneedling is quite short, with redness usually lasting 24-48 hours prior. Whereas laser and chemical peels usually last one week or longer. Microneedling therapy is also great for those who are concerned with their complexion but are reluctant to try botox or fillers. Because it is mechanical and doesn’t involve any chemicals or neurotoxins, the technique is reassuring to many.
