Laser peeling is the most powerful procedure for complex treatment of all signs of aging skin. The method is used for smoothing deep wrinkles, minimizing fine lines, skin tightening, pigmentation, pore contraction and scars. Dreamy skin can be achieved at the cost of a short restoration period lasting 7 to 14 days.
The procedure is performed with high-tech Er: Yag laser. The laser beam passes through the skin and forms channels of thermally damaged tissue. In this interaction with the skin a great amount of heat is released which provokes the healing processes. As a result, a dense network of collagen forms and the skin looks more vibrant, tight and young.
Laser peeling is a precise procedure and causes minimal skin trauma. It is suitable for both men and women. It is recommended to be done during the autumn-winter season.
Specially trained and certified doctors guarantee the procedure’s success and patient safety.

What does the procedure involve?
Initially, an anesthetic cream is applied to the areas to be treated. It is necessary to wait about 40 minutes. During the procedure, intense warming or healing to moderate burning is felt, which is minimized by a stream of cold air throughout the skin treatment. At the end of therapy, a soothing epithelial cream is applied.
Throughout the procedure, the patient is wearing safety glasses.
The duration of the procedure itself, without the pain relief, is 40-50 minutes.
What are the contraindications?
Laser peeling is contraindicated in bacterial or viral skin infections. Not recommended for pregnant and lactating women, people with hypersensitivity to light and epilepsy.
It is recommended to be done during the autumn-winter season.
It is contraindicated in the tendency for abnormal scar formation and keloids or hyperpigmentation. Immediately after treatment, flushing and swelling are observed, which occur within 2-3 days. Within a week after the procedure, there may be skin tingling and crusting. Complete recovery of the skin is observed after 7 to 10 days. Poor redness may occur within 2-3 weeks after the procedure.
When does the treatment take effect and how long does it last?
Approximately 2 months are necessary for the skin to form new collagen. The optimal effect of the procedure is observed between the 4th and 6th months. For maximum results a series of 3-4 procedures is needed. With proper skin care, the effect can last for 3 to 5 years.
What is the recommended post-procedure care?
In the first 24 hours after the procedure, the face should not be wet. The patient need to regularly use the epithelial cream until the skin is completely restored. Mechanical removal of scales and scabs are contraindicated due to the risk of scarring. After the procedure, sun exposure should be avoided until the healing is complete and sunscreen products must be used for at least 3 months. Strict adherence to prescriptions prevents possible complications.
How many procedures should I undergo and how often?
The number of procedures required to achieve the optimal effect is individual and depends on the particular condition. Usually 3 or 4 procedures are required to achieve the desired result. Therapies are done every 4 or 6 weeks, with skin condition continuing to improve within a year thereafter. A second procedure may be necessary after 3 or 5 years.
