A MicroLaserPeel® removes a thin layer of damaged skin to improve texture and provide a more youthful appearance. The procedure can be custom tailored to your specific skin condition and desired outcome.
The laser beam scans across the treatment area and removes a very thin layer of skin. This eliminates damaged cells that give skin that tired, aged look. When the skin begins to heal, new cells develop resulting in healthier, more vibrant-looking skin. Because of this, patients notice obvious improvement in 3 to 4 days. The number of treatments needed to obtain desired results varies from person to person but usually only one treatment is needed to see excellent results.
Treatment conditions include:
- Mild wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Pigment irregularities
Most procedures last between 15 to 30 minutes. Depending on the depth of the treatment, most patients feel comfortable enough to return to work within 3 to 4 days – an attribute that has given rise to the nickname “the weekend peel.” Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light following the procedure, so it is important to avoid direct sun exposure until healed.
