Facial/Peel/Laser: In the context of rejuvenation of the face to improve texture, tone, fine lines, wrinkles, etc, a facial will temporarily hydrate and make skin look and feel good. A peel will help to improve tone, texture, fine lines and start to smooth out wrinkles. You'll need multiple peels for best results. Laser offer best results for each visit, depending on extent of treatment. Example laser genesis vs -->.

Skin rejuvenation: There are different ways to rejuvenate the facial skin to reduce the skin damage caused by time and the sun. A facial is usually a light exfoliation that removes the most superficial layers . Various chemical peels can cause superficial or somewhat deeper treatments. Different types of lasers can also be used to rejuvenate the facial skin. Talk to your doctor to see what's right for you.
