What is the MicroLaserPeel™?
It is an intra-epidermal laser peel that precisely ablates the outermost layers of the skin. The procedure is individually tailored to the nature of the condition to be corrected. Skin conditions such as: wrinkles, scars, acne scars, keratoses, or pigmentary problems have been very successfully treated with a MicroLaserPeel™.
Who Should Consider a MicroLaserPeel™?
If you are looking for more than microdermabrasion or light chemical peels, and have little time for a prolonged healing process, then the MicroLaserPeel™ was designed for you.
How is the MicroLaserPeel™ different from Microdermabrasion?
Generally, microdermabrasion only removes the stratum corneum (10 microns). The MicroLaserPeel™ is a partial- to-full epidermal peel (20-50 microns) and is performed with topical anesthetic. Because this procedure ablates deeper into the epidermis, it is the perfect step between microdermabrasion and full skin resurfacing.
Does the MicroLaserPeel™ need to be retreated?
Typically, the procedure is repeated 2-4 times, spaced 6-8 weeks apart, but many peels may be done to achieve the desired result.
What can you expect?
You will experience smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin, with a significant, immediate change in skin texture and tightness as compared to microdermabrasion.
How long is the healing process?
Healing takes 3-4 days. The procedure can be performed on a Thursday or Friday, so you can return to work the following Monday. Symptoms immediately following the procedure resemble a sunburn, with minor sloughing on the second day. Redness will begin to fade by the third day, and be easily covered by makeup on the fourth day.
What should I know about pre- and post-treatment care?
Your skin care specialist will provide you with very detailed pre- and post-treatment information.
