The MicroLaserPeel® is a cosmetic procedure that uses laser light to remove superficial layers of skin. It also tightens the under layers of skin, giving the person a more youthful appearance. The results are immediate and long-lasting, and there is very little discomfort involved during the procedure.
The treatment is effective for removing freckles, fine wrinkles, sunspots, skin pigmentation and more. The laser can remove skin as superficially as 10 microns or as deep as 50 microns. During a consultation with our specialist, you can learn about your best options for removing your facial blemishes.
Some important things to know about the MicroLaserPeel® are:
• The treatment is precise and reproducible, and the depth of the laser can be determined before the procedure
• The results are more effective than microdermabrasion
• The recovery time will vary with each patient and condition
The MicroLaserPeel® process uses a laser that is absorbed by the water in the epidermis. The water immediately heats to a high temperature, causing it to remove or ablate the skin. When the top layer that contains dead skin cells is removed, blemishes such as freckles that are there are also removed. With the top layer gone, the skin automatically reproduces fresh skin cells to replace the ones removed. This is how the skin gets a refreshed appearance.
Many areas of the body can be treated with MicroLaserPeel®, but the most common places are the face, hands, neck and chest. Our specialist can determine your best course of treatment according to your needs and skin type.
The laser is controlled by a computer scanner to precisely remove the skin on different treatment areas. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the treatment may take a few minutes to more than half an hour. The discomfort varies for each patient and the depth of the treatment.
Recovery time is usually a few days, but deeper treatments may take a bit longer. You must avoid exposure to the sun while your skin is healing. You should wear sunblock and a hat if you must go into the sunlight. Our specialist may give you specific aftercare instructions for your treatment area.
You can see positive results as soon as your skin heals. There may be overall color homogeneity with pigmentation gone. One treatment is usually enough for good results, but you could have several shallow treatments to get the same results as one deep treatment.
