Avatar m tn Hi how much Laser peel is better than Chemical Peel and how much is the Cost diference??
Avatar m tn I was wondering what skin peel solutions would work best for my skin. As far as I can tell from very limited research -- my options are: glycolic (35% or 50%), lactic (50% or 70%), salicylic (20%), or TCA (various formulations, 20%+, etc.) (these are all available w/o a prescription) I've attached some pictures.
Avatar n tn I had a peel 3 weeks ago, its left very dark blotches all over my skin.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have dark skin and would like to do an at-home chemical peel. I have never done this before but have excessive acne scarring and dark circles. Can you tell me what product(s) I need to purchase and what %, etc. I need? I think it it a TCA peel but I'm not sure. Thanks!!
Avatar m tn Now, when I was researching people said, that there should be a little bit of redness, drying, scabbing, and peeling of the skin. The symptoms that is. So when I first applied it , it didn't really bother my skin as bad as I thought it was. There was little bit of a tingling not really harsh or lenient. I give it about a 4 out of 10 on a level of, I guess burning or a stinging sensation. I left if it on for about maybe 6 mins.
Avatar n tn And in my case, my Blue Cross paid for everything!) Since you're highly myopic, you would either need laser vision correction or a clear lens exchange on your other eye. (My Blue Cross paid for that eye, too!) But please don't even consider multifocal/accommodating IOLs. They're just not designed for eyes with a less-then-perfect retina. If you do have the retinal surgery, get aspheric monofocal IOLs made of acrylic for best results post cataract surgery.
Avatar n tn i Had tow days before a Fraction CO2 laser peel now my skin is like burnt my dermatologist say that in 5 days i must visit her to see me what should i epxect in next days? how much time my skin need to peell off ?
Avatar m tn Pain and discomfort is normal after any type of removal surgery, considering they first burned your skin with a laser, THEN used a highly acidic compound on your skin directly after. You shouldn't pick the skin, but let it heal. If you don't mind me asking, you had carbon dioxide laser treatment? I'm considering asking my doctor about this type of treatment for possible urethral warts, but have heard its the most expensive treatment...
Avatar n tn I had a c-2 Laser Peel done 3 weeks ago along with other cosmetic surgery. Everything is going great but with the peel, I am experiencing a lot of splotchy skin areas, with white, red mostly around the sides of my face. Make-up covers it up but I am very concerned that this will be permanent. That maybe my pigment is causing this. My Dr.'s office said to be patient. Have you heard of this? Everything I read talks about redness not splotchy spots. Please advise. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I am about to receive the Venus laser treatment (burn to peel skin off) to fight some acne scars, fine lines and large pores. I have received this treatment before and it had an amazing effect on my skin, especially when it came to wrinkles. However some weeks, possibly months after the treatment, I experienced a rather speedy aging of my skin, especially around my eyes, even a little on my forehead.

1044425 tn?1257546110 After a week of hair removal my skin got brown and started to peel off, Now i have white marks on my arms and i am not wearing sleeveless and just wearing full sleeves.....Its all hypo pigmented,,,,I am using vitamin E all the time...........Could you please suggest how long it will take to re pigment and what could i do to get rid of hypo pigmentation.....I have seen a little change in some of the spots.......
Avatar n tn i had almost the same thing with i peel a lite one. my skin is tio sensitive, stay out off the sun even for 1 minute use sunblock i cant stress enough the brown blotching you will get and it takes 10 yrs to go away if it does . so as long as you didnt go in the sun you should heal. it was probably just to strong. also dont put any strong cleaners on your face just use something like eucerin for the face until it heals.
Avatar f tn Was told by another doctor that I should have not been that bad with a 40% peel. All and all I have moved on and are c onsidering doing a pulsed dye laser to to help with my pigmentation and rosacea! Wish me luck and thanks again for your advice!
Avatar n tn I have had some success with treatment with Obaji skin care products (retina A and hydroquinone) followed by TCA peel. I am unfamiliar with the laser treatment you mentioned.
Avatar f tn I am 28 years old female with a very senstive and thin skin. I have a very mild acne (especially on my forehead) and was recommended a light exfoliation treatment to help treat it. I had a fruit acid facial peel (15%)almost 8 months ago now - after this exfoliation treatment my face turned red and peeled for a week. When the redness faded away I was left with slightly dilated capillaries on my cheeks.

Avatar f tn Natural home products like tomato peel or a papaya peel may be helpful. If there is a scar your doctor may recommend hydroquinone or retinoid. If the symptoms are severe it is best to visit your dermatologist and start the treatment at the earliest. Do keep us posted. Take care and regards!

Avatar f tn Hello, For such uneven skin discoloration, treatment options include treatment with vitamin C and hydrocortisone, peel with carbon dioxide snow and alexandrite and ND-Yag Q-Switched laser treatment preceded by a hydroquinone-based application. Please discuss these options with your dermatologist. There are many skin whitening creams in the market but their efficacy is still not proven.
Avatar f tn I was told that going in for a laser treatment(fall time) would take care of the melasma discoloration. Will laser work? I am desperate!

Avatar f tn Lentigo is a small, sharply circumscribed, pigmented macule surrounded by normal-appearing skin. You cannot remove them at home.Cryosurgery using liquid nitrogen and laser are the main treatment modalities.

Avatar f tn Hello, I am a 25 year old white female who has recently noticed a skin discoloration above my upper lip and moving down now around my lowe lip. I'm getting very self-conscious about it- it just came about probably a few weeks ago- it resembles a light 5 o'clock shadow - I know weird. There is no possibility of being pregnant and I use the Nuva Ring as birthcontrol.
Avatar f tn however, the skin on the upper lip is far too sensitive for laser hair removal, whatever your skin tone. I have spent a fortune on creams such as Clinique's dark spot corrector with little effect. The issue is that the damage caused by the laser is so deep no topical solution is effective. I fear that the hyperpigmention will worsen over time, which terrifies me as the situation is already distressing enough.
