Is a laser peel the same thing as laser resurfacing?
A laser peel is a mild form of laser skin resurfacing. A laser peel was a term coined by one of the laser companies that created a program with their laser that provided a superficial peel of the skin rather than the more aggressive facial laser resurfacing that was traditionally used for skin damage. The results of a laser peel are less than a single treatment of more aggressive laser skin resurfacing, but, many individuals get great benefits from more mild peels and lasers of the face.
