IMPORTANT: This is a service that is performed at our clinic, by professionals only. It is not a product that you take home!
Coined as the “Vegas Peel,” our Surrey laser peel service offers a deep skin exfoliation that is comparable to getting 30 microdermabrasions at once. However, it is not as strong as a chemical peel, making it a balanced approach to skin rejuvenation. It’s more than a basic spa facial, and less than total skin resurfacing (which we also do!).
Note that often, laser peels, also known as photofacials, can refer to more enhanced, ablative or non-ablative procedures. However, these other services come with more downtime, and would not be suitable if you had an event coming up, or feel uncomfortable going out in public while your skin is swollen and ‘raw,’ for the healing period.
What is there to love about our Surrey laser peels and photofacials?
Laser peels give patients a deep exfoliation that speeds up their body’s natural skin shedding. This reveals newer skin, sooner, for a better, more uniform ‘glow.’ At the same time, it doesn’t damage the inner layers of the dermis, which are more sensitive, and would otherwise require longer healing time.
Laser peels can be customized to a patient’s needs. Settings on the machines can go lower or higher, to suit the sensitivity and tone of the skin being treated. Peels can also be mixed with other treatments, in a series of sessions, to achieve the ultimate look you want.
Downtime after a laser peel can be as short as a few days, with only a bit of redness and flakiness. Most people heal completely within a week, making it the perfect pre-wedding or staycation beauty treatment.
In one treatment, a laser peel can target multiple skin conditions, including fine lines and wrinkles, a dull complexion, acne scars and brown spots, plus sun damage.
What can laser peels be used for?
As mentioned above, the term “laser peel” can refer to total skin resurfacing, where the top layer of skin is intentionally damaged, in order to stimulate new collagen growth. This results in soft, smooth and ‘fresh’ skin. That type of so-called laser peel can require a lot of planning (due to the healing time involved). It can also involve the use of stronger settings, on stronger lasers (such as CO2 or Fraxel lasers), to achieve more dramatic, yet quicker, results.
However, when we refer to the Vegas Laser Peel at our Surrey beauty clinic, we’re talking about a lower setting, for a more mild photofacial treatment.
To that end, our milder, Surrey laser peel service (i.e. the Vegas Peel) can be a good option for those who want:
- Mild wrinkle reduction
- Skin tightening, smoothing and softening
- Acne scar reduction
- Brown spot treatments
- A complexion boost (for a dull complexion or pigmentation treatment)
- Sun damage healing
