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.

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.

Why Choose a 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 our patients desire.

What to expect?

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.

Post Treatment
  • Redness normally persists for 24 hours – 5 days depending upon the depth of the peel.
  • Swelling is typically a short-term response. Use of a cold compress or ice packs will help to relieve the swelling.  To avoid further swelling, you may choose to sleep in an upright position the first night after the treatment.
  • Post treatment discomfort may be relieved by oral pain relievers; i.e. Extra Strength Tylenol.
  • A cold compress or an ice pack can be used to provide comfort if the treated area is especially warm. This is typically only needed within the first 12 hours after the treatment.
  • Cleanse the skin two times a day with a gentle cleanser; beginning the morning after the treatment. Use your hands to gently apply the cleanser and water and finish by patting dry with a soft cloth.  Be careful not to rub the treated area.
  • Peeling and flaking generally occur within 24 hours post treatment and should be allowed to come off naturally. DO NOT PICK, RUB, OR FORCE OFF ANY SKIN DURING THE HEALING PROCESS. THIS COULD RESULT IN SCARRING AND INFECTION! Gently washing the skin more frequently will help to promote the peeling process.
  • Avoid direct sunlight for up to 2 months post treatment.
  • Once skin has healed (no longer wearing the occlusive barrier) you may begin to use a bland moisturizer and wear makeup. If you are able to wear makeup, a sunblock should be worn on a daily basis to help prevent any hyperpigmentation issues that could be caused by direct and indirect sunlight.
  • When showering, be sure to wash your hair behind you to avoid getting shampoo directly on the treated area. Avoid strenuous exercise and sweating until after skin has healed.
