Chemical Peel and Laser Peel for Skin Rejuvenation

Skin rejuvenation means improving and making the skin look younger through medical treatment.

Many people write “skin rejuvenation” as “skin replacement”, thinking that the treatment will replace their skin with a new layer. Whether it is skin replacement or skin rejuvenation, the goal is to remove the signs of aging on the skin’s surface.

As the skin ages, it begins to develop fine lines, enlarged pores, pigmentation, and sagging. These skin problems are affected by UV radiation and aging, and will only become more severe over time. To improve these issues, targeted medical treatments are required.

There are many treatments that can effectively improve these types of problems, such as chemical peels and laser peels, which are commonly used.

Laser peels generally use lasers with wavelengths of 755/1064/1440/1550/1927/2940/10600nm. The effects and side effects of lasers of different wavelengths are different. For example, Q-switch 1064nm lasers are effective in even skin tone, but long-term use can cause white spots and hormone spots to appear. 1440/1550/1927 nm segmented lasers are effective for fine lines, enlarged pores, pigmentation, etc., and have a skin reorganizing effect. However, improper use can cause skin burns and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. 10600nm is the most powerful skin rejuvenation laser, but for Asians, darkening of the skin is a common issue, so it is rarely used.

As for chemical peels, different fruit acid concentrations and ingredients are used to penetrate different levels of the skin. Commonly used fruit acids include glycolic acid, salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid, vitamin A acid, and synthetic fruit acids such as modified jessner’s. The effects of different fruit acids are not exactly the same. Superficial fruit acid treatment can improve thickened keratin and dull skin; medium-depth fruit acid treatment can improve pigmentation and UV damage to the skin; deep fruit acid treatment can improve deep skin problems such as fine lines and enlarged pores. The deeper the fruit acid peel treatment, the higher the risk, so it must be handled by a doctor.

As for which type of skin rejuvenation is better, different types of treatments will be selected by the doctor based on different skin types and problems, and sometimes multiple skin rejuvenation treatments may need to be combined to achieve the best results. If you have any questions, you can consult your doctor!”
