What is a Micro Laser Peel?
A micro laser peel is a rejuvenating laser treatment that removes damaged layers of skin to promote a healthy glow. At the same time, laser energy that is converted to heat beneath the skin prompts an increase in collagen production, contributing to lasting results. This technique is commonly used to treat the face, hands, and chest. This versatile treatment can be customized to address the specific needs of each patient. Micro Laser Peel treatments can be used to address concerns such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Age spots and pigment irregularities
A Micro Laser Peel begins with skin cleansing and the application of protective shields over the eyes. The laser handpiece is then positioned just over the skin, but not touching it. This handpiece remains in this position while the laser beam is moved over the treatment area by a computer-guided scanner. Treatment may take between 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. Because the skin is not penetrated by laser energy, most people find treatment only minimally uncomfortable, if at all. When deeper settings are selected for optimal results, a topical numbing cream may be applied to the skin to ensure comfort.
What Can I Expect After a Micro Laser Peel?
Patients treated with the Micro Laser Peel notice a “frosty” appearance to their skin immediately following their procedure. This is because the outermost layer of skin becomes dehydrated. In the few days following treatment, skin will peel away gradually. Sensations such as a mild sunburn and slight redness and swelling may occur, lasting up to four days depending on the depth of the peel. After this time, you will notice a healthy glow in the skin and a gradual reduction in the appearance of sun damage and other skin conditions.
