Sometimes minimally invasive means minimal results – not with the MicroLaser Peel! This is a precisely controlled erbium laser peel that offers greater results than a microdermabrasion or light chemical peel, with only 2-3 days of downtime. If you come for a treatment on a Friday, you can be back to work on Monday. You will notice a difference after only one treatment.During treatment, the laser-resurfacing device precisely removes the outermost layers of skin at a pre-determined depth. The procedure is customized to the needs of each individual and to the specific skin conditions to be corrected, which include fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, irregular pigmentation and excessive sun damage.
MicroLaser Peel is an excellent choice for acne scars, wrinkles, pigmented lesions, and sun damaged skin. It is often recommended in combination with other laser technologies for optimal results. Some of the most commonly treated areas of the body include the face, neck, and hands.
Most individuals experience smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin, with an immediate improvement in skin texture and tightness. Your skin should continue to improve over 6 months of time due to increased collagen stimulation in the deeper layers of your skin.
When compared to other skin resurfacing methods, a MicroLaser Peel results in much less post-treatment redness and swelling, and offers patients a more rapid healing process, which generally lasts from two to five days, depending on the depth of the peel. Post-treatment, the treated area will resemble varying degrees of sunburn for up to three days, sometimes longer. Any discomfort can be easily controlled with over-the-counter medication. Sun block should be applied when in the sun. Following treatment, MicroLaser Peel patients experience smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin, with an immediate improvement in skin texture and tightness. For up to six months, the skin should continue to improve due to increased collagen stimulation in the dermis.
Unlike conventional CO2 lasers, the advanced Sciton laser system enables medical professionals to program a specific treatment plan for each patient. One of the most important differences is, however, when compared to conventional laser resurfacing, MicroLaser Peel patients heal in a fraction of the time. This is because the procedure produces minimal tissue damage, resulting in less sloughing, less oozing, and less swelling in the post-treatment phase.
In most cases, a 10- to 30- micron peels will heal in three to five days. The treatment can be done on a Thursday or Friday so you can easily return to work the following Monday. This is why MicroLaser Peel is sometimes known as “the Weekend Skin Peel”. Symptoms immediately following the procedure resemble sunburn, with minor sloughing on Day 2. Redness will begin to fade by Day 3 and can be covered with makeup on Day 4.
A topical anesthetic may be applied 30-45 minutes before your treatment. For deeper peels, oral sedation may be suggested.
A treatment normally takes 30 minutes to 1 hour, although time varies depending on how deep the peel is. The mildest treatment, the “Blizzard Peel” is done in less than 30 minutes.
You will notice a significant and visible change in skin texture and tightness in just a few days.
One procedure could be sufficient for at least 6 to12 months, but additional procedures can be performed as required. A package of three to four treatments may be best for you. You should discuss this with our staff.
