Superficial skin resurfacing is possible-get great results with minimal downtime! The MicroLaser Peel beam is scanned over a treatment area, removing a very thin layer of damaged skin to improve texture and provide a more youthful appearance. Removing the top layer eliminates some of the damaged cells that can give skin a tired, aged look. As the skin heals, fresh cells grow and resurface the treated area. The result is healthier-looking skin, often with reduced wrinkles and improved color evenness. Patients say that it looks like their skin went from looking tired to vibrant in one treatment. Unlike traditional chemical peels, the MicroLaserPeel treatment is administered with great precision of depth. The depth of the peel is determined by your skin type, the down time available and your personal skin care goals.
Some conditions that can be improved with a MicroLaser Peel are:
Most skin areas can be treated. The most popular areas are the face and neck, though some people aslo treat the chest and hands.
Immediately after treatment you will notice the skin has a “frosty” appearance. This is dehydrated skin that will peel away within a few days following the treatment. You may experience some skin redness, mild stinging and mild swelling. Most patients feel comfortable to return to work within a few days, and can resume a normal skin care regimen at one week post treatment.
