What is a microlaser peel?
The “microlaser” used during treatment is a short-pulsed Erbium laser that delivers effective resurfacing without an extended recovery time. The treatment can be completed in as little as five to ten minutes, and can address the following:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Uneven skin texture
- Mild scarring, like from acne
- Sun damage
You may need multiple treatments spaced a few weeks to a month apart to see optimal results. The minimally-invasive laser can also be used on an ongoing basis to maintain your smooth, radiant skin.
How is a microlaser peel different from other peels?
Peels come in many different forms with varying depths to treat numerous signs of aging. A microlaser peel is considered a gentle treatment for mild to moderate signs of aging. It utilizes a laser as opposed to chemicals or serums, reducing the risk of complications or irritation. Deep creases or scars may be treated more effectively by a deeper peel, but our knowledgeable staff will help you determine the best treatment options for your cosmetic concerns.
What can I expect after my microlaser peel?
Immediately following your microlaser peel, you may feel like you have a mild sunburn. The top layer of skin will peel or flake off, and you should be able to return to work within three or four days of your treatment. Once you have healed, you will have renewed skin with a healthy glow.
