If you are looking for a more powerful treatment than microdermabrasion or light chemical peels, and have little time for a prolonged healing process, then the MicroLaserPeel was designed for you.

How is Microlaser 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 this is performed with topical anesthetic. Because this procedure ablates deeper into the epidermis, it is the perfect step between Microdermabrasion and a full skin resurfacing.

What can I expect during treatment?
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.

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.

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

When will I see results from the treatment?
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.

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 choose to combine MicroLaserPeel with other esthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

What type of aftercare is necessary?
You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. 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.
