    Chemical peel appeal


    Peel vs Laser

    When optimally used, peels treat the skin surface more consistently than many devices, according to Dr. Fedok.

    “Therefore, if one is treating uneven skin tones, lentigines [and] very fine rhytids, chemical peels are in many ways the historic gold standard,” he says.

    But results are highly dependent on the agent used and the practitioner’s experience.

    “These medical grade peeling techniques do require clinical experience,” he says.

    Some of the new fractionated and minimally ablative laser devices can achieve comparable results to the peel, but it’s more expensive to use the devices compared to the low-cost alternative of peeling, according to Dr. Fedok.
