Hi Johnny, thanks for your question. Laser peel makes the little individual cells of the skin, pop and die, as opposed to the chemical or acid that makes them die from the acid treatment. In effect, the outer layer of skin is destroyed on purpose to a certain thickness forcing nature to send up brand new smooth tight fresh pink skin. In my opinion, chemical peel will deliver the desired results. Treating just parts of the face takes about 30 to 45 minutes. A full-face treatment takes up to two hours. After the laser procedure, the doctor will bandage the treated areas. After 24 hours, you will need to clean the treated areas four to five times a day and then apply an ointment such as petroleum jelly to prevent scabs from forming.
