Micro Laser Peel

Reveal fresh, vibrant and healthy skin

The Micro Laser Peel removes damaged and dull skin to encourage new skin growth. The new skin is healthier-looking with improve tone, texture and color evenness.

How it works:

The laser is used to precisely ablate (vaporize) a very thin layer of skin, removing old, damaged tissue. Removing the top layer eliminates 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 fewer wrinkles and improved tone and texture. Patients often say that it looks as if their skin went from looking tired to vibrant.

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

What will the treatment be like?

Your skin will be cleaned in the treatment area and your eyes will be protected with safety shields. Your treatment provider will guide the laser hand piece over the area being treated. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure usually lasts 30-45 minutes.

One of the primary advantages of the Micro Laser Peel treatment is that it causes minimal  pain because it does not penetrate very deep into the skin.

Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, but the number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. Our treatment providers can personalize a plan based on your specific needs.

What should be avoided after treatment?

Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light after the procedure, so 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.

What can I expect after treatment?

Immediately after the treatment you will notice that your skin has a “frosty” appearance. This is the dehydrated skin that will peel away within the next few days. You may experience some skin redness and a sunburn-like sensation, as well as mild swelling. You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them.

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 completely.
