As we age, the effects of sun damage and environmental pollutants take their toll on our skin, creating wrinkles and pigment irregularities, especially on our faces. A Laser Peel can be very successful at reducing or eliminating these conditions, and in fact it is the best way to address the problematic lines that occur around the mouth and eyes.
What is a MicroLaserPeel?
MicroLaserPeel is an advanced clinical method to improve skin texture, tone, and luminosity, and is easily customizable to your individual goals. Because only a thin layer of skin is removed, healing times tend to be very rapid. Ablating the top layer of the epidermis removes blemishes such as sun spots and pigment irregularities. During the healing process the body will naturally replace the old, damaged skin that was removed, with a fresh, healthy layer improving the overall appearance of the skin.
Is a MicroLaserPeel Right For Me?
Many skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and hands. Your practitioner will determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs and skin type.
- Rejuvenate the skin
- Reduce fine wrinkles
- Rejuvenate sun-damaged skin on face, neck and shoulders
- Reduce age spots on the face
- Reduce blotchy skin coloring
- Improve acne scars and any other superficial scars
- Improve fine to moderate lines around eyes, forehead, and lips
- Reduce hyperpigmentation
What Should I Expect During The Procedure?
A laser beam at 2940 nm wavelength will be delivered through a computer controlled device that automatically scans the area of skin being treated. You may hear snapping or popping sounds as the laser beam gently removes the outer layer of skin cells. The procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour or more, depending on the size of the treatment area. The amount of discomfort varies from patient to patient and depends on the depth of treatment. Very light treatments are often tolerated with no anesthetic at all. Deeper treatments require a topical anesthetic. Slight swelling may be present in the treated area; however, it usually subsides within a few hours to a day. Redness may persist for a few days, depending on the depth of the treatment, but should resolve fairly rapidly. It is important that you avoid sun exposure, especially while your skin is healing. Results are clearly visible as soon as the skin heals after the treatment. Most patients say that a MicroLaserPeel, even a light one, returns a healthy glow to their skin and that the texture is smooth.
