Wrinkles, discoloration, acne scarring
Reveal a layer of new skin with less fine lines and a smoother texture.
A microlaser peel is ideal for those looking for better and more long lasting results than those produced by microdermabrasion or light chemical peels. You will notice a significant and immediate change in skin texture and tightness. Fine lines, wrinkles and discolorations should be improved. If you have acne scarring, you will usually notice progressive improvement with each treatment.
Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses and your practitioner may administer a type of anesthetic. The laser energy is delivered through a computer-controlled scanner that precisely positions the beam over the treatment area. You may hear snapping sounds as the laser beam gently removes the outer layer of skin cells. The amount of discomfort varies from patient to patient and depends on the depth of treatment. Very light treatments are often tolerated with no anesthetic at all. Deeper treatments may require topical and/or local anesthetic. The procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour or more, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Your healing time will depend on factors such as treatment depth of the peel and post-treatment care. Healing time may also vary, but patients usually return to normal activities within a few days of the treatment.
