The MicroLaserPeel is a superficial, full field skin resurfacing treatment. The process uses the laser to remove a thin layer of skin. The outermost layer is composed of dead and damaged skin cells. By removing it, the skin is restored with newer cells, giving you a more younger, rejuvenated look. Mild wrinkles and scars, brown spots, sun damage, and pigmented irregularities are some of the skin conditions that can be treated by a MicroLaserPeel.

How does the treatment work?microlaser1

The laser is used to run a pass over the entire face at a specified depth, essentially peeling off a thin layer of damaged or dead skin from the top. The body then replenishes the layer of skin with new cells.

What areas of the body can be treated?

Only the face can be treated for a resurfacing procedure.

How many treatments will I need?

Ideally, 3-5 treatments are recommended. However, we recommend follow-up procedures every 3 to 4 months to maintain and enhance the appearance of the skin.

What will happen during the procedure?

Your skin will be cleaned in the treatment area and your eyes will be protected with safety shields. The physician will place the laser handpiece against the skin. Once one section of the skin is treated, the handpiece will be moved to another location until the entire treatment area has been covered. The procedure typically takes 30 minutes to an hour.

Will it be uncomfortable?

The procedure might be uncomfortable to some. However, all laser procedures require the application of a topical anesthetic prior to the treatment in order to minimize discomfort to patients.

What should I expect immediately after the treatment?microlaser2

The treated areas of the skin will appear red for a while. It is necessary to make sure that the cream given to you at the clinic is applied generously. Exposure to the sun should be avoided as much as possible until the skin heals.

How long will it take to recover?

As this is a laser-based procedure, a short downtime of 2 to 3 days is to be expected. The short downtime makes this a great procedure to have done before the weekend. During this time it is best to stay indoors.

What aftercare do I need?

The doctor will provide you with a cream to use for the next 2 days. You will also need a hydrating soap to use for the next week. Exposure to the sun should be avoided while you are healing. The staff will follow-up with you shortly after the procedure to address any concerns and ensure that you are healing properly.

When should I expect results?

Improvements can usually be seen within a week after the treatment. The results will become more dramatic and noticeable with subsequent treatments.

The easy and effective way to improve skin texture and appearance

What is MicroLaserPeel?
A MicroLaserPeel removes a thin layer of damaged skin to improve texture and provide a more youthful appearance. It provides superior results because it can be administered with great precision of depth. The procedure is performed in your physician’s office and can be custompic_sr1 tailored to  your specific skin conditions and desired outcome.

How does MicroLaserPeel work?
The MicroLaserPeel’s beam is scanned over a treatment area to remove a very thin layer of the skin. 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 often say that it looks like their skin went from looking tired to vibrant.

What conditions can be treated with MicroLaserPeel?
• Mild wrinkles
• Scars
• Keratosis
• Sun damage (e.g., freckles)
• Pigment irregularities

What areas of the body can be treated?
Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, though some people also treat the chest and hands. You should discuss your needs with your physician.pic_sr2

How many treatments will I need?
Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, however the number of treatments needed may vary from patient to patient. Your physician can personalize a plan based on your specific needs and may chose to combine MicroLaserPeel with other aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

What will happen during the procedure?
Your skin will be cleaned in the treatment area and your eyes will be protected with safety shields. The physician will position the laser handpiece above the skin and will hold it in place as the computer guided scanner moves the laser beam around the treatment area. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure usually lasts 15 to 30 minutes.

Will it be uncomfortable?
One of the primary advantages of MicroLaserPeel is that it causes little pain because it does not penetrate very deep into the skin. At its most shallow settings, most people can tolerate treatment with no anesthetic at all. At deeper settings, a topical numbing cream is typically used.

What should I expect immediately after the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice that the skin has a “frosty” appearance. This is the dehydrated skin that will peel away within next few days following the treatment.  You may experience some skin redness and a sensation resembling sunburn, as well as mild swelling.

How long will it take to recover?
Depending on the depth of 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.”

You must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. It is recommended that you always use some level of solar protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.

When should I expect results?
Because only the outer layer of skin is treated, most patients notice an obvious improvement in tone, texture and color evenness once the skin heals in approximately 3-4 days.
