Laser Skin Peel

WHY DO WE NEED A LASER PEEL?

Removing the outer skin layers to papillary dermis level induces re-epithelialisation and new collagen formation, which can create a smoother, even-toned, and more youthful appearance.

The desire for natural, young appearance makes the skin rejuvenation to one of the most stable and fastest growing aesthetic applications. The Er: YAG laser technology is here still that therapy is that meet the individual requirements can best be dosed.

Just a light, ablative peel offers our patients a significant and long-lasting freshness effect of the skin. The slight redness associated has subsided after 24 hours. YAG laser ablation and at depth, and put intense thermal stimulion to disappear even deep wrinkles, which it can. This stimulates the formation of new collagen, so that a comprehensive peeling effect is achieved.

IS THIS TREATMENT SAFE?

Depending on the extent of the laser peel, most of our patients that have undergone this treatment will compare it to having an elastic band snapped across the skin during the treatment and the sensation of having sunburn afterwards.

No side effects apart from transient erythema have been reported. Mild erythema was markedly reduced after 1 – 2 days, and totally disappeared after one week

WHAT ARE THE TRADITIONAL ALTERNATIVES?

The traditional treatments, such as dermabrasion and chemical peels, which are not performed in Vancouver Medi spa because the unique characteristics of our system which means that we can precisely control the depth and the extent in this treatment to which the treatment will work. As the traditional treatments we were not able to control the depth and the extent.

In the late 1980s, laser technology applied to skin resurfacing was discovered to yield more predictable depths of injury when compared with chemical peels or dermabrasion. The first laser used for skin resurfacing was a pulsed carbon dioxide (CO2) laser. Later, the erbium:yttriumaluminum-garnet (Er:YAG) laser was introduced, which has now become a standard tool for skin resurfacing and laser peel.

This means that we can cater the treatment exactly to suite your expectations and the recovery time of our patients . Depending on the extent of the laser peel, most of our patients that have undergone the treatment will compare it to having an elastic band snapped across the skin during the treatment and the sensation of having sunburn afterwards.

Unfortunately we can’t stop the march of time and stay young forever. As we age, our skin cells begin to lose moisture and less collagen is produced in the dermis, which is responsible for the skin’s firmness.

Elastin fibers begin to wear out, while our skin also thins as it loses fat in the subcutaneous layer. These changes combined, cause our skin to sag and wrinkle

WHAT ARE THE MAIN FACTORS?

Main factors responsible for the aging of our skin are exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun, poor diet, lack of exercise and smoking.

The first signs of the aging process begin to appear in our late 20s and accelerate with subsequent decades.

Until recently the overwhelming majority of anti-ageing treatments involved the use of lotions and moisturizers or extensive cosmetic surgery to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Recent developments in laser technology are now offering a long-lasting scientifically proven method of restoring the natural beauty of your skin.

WHY CHOOSE LASER PEEL?

The ’ VSP (Variable Square Pulse) Er:YAG laser inherently ablates skin more precisely than other laser technologies.

Er:YAG energy is highly absorbed in water — the main target chromophore for skin resurfacing — and can thus vaporize skin with micron–precision and very little thermal conduction.

This keeps undesired effects such as hypopigmentation and persistent erythema, as well as recovery time, to a minimum.

The treatment can be accurately tuned from varying “cold” and “hot” ablative to non–ablative thermal ratios.

Full customizability allows you to precisely attain the clinical outcomes your patients desire

ARE THERE ANY CLINICAL STUDIES FOR THIS TREATMENT?

At Vancouver Medi Spa our Er:YAG laser system  has longer and variable pulses which allows our patients with deeper wrinkles and scars to be successfully treated.
Clinical observations and histological findings demonstrate that fractional ablative treatments with the Er:YAG laser are a safe and effective alternative to more aggressive full-ablation laser treatments
