As the skin ages, it is normal to develop a dull, lackluster tone as the natural rejuvenation process slows and collagen production decreases. At Laser Health Works, our microlaser peel treatments improve skin irregularities and gently exfoliate the top layers of the skin to rejuvenate and refresh your appearance with minimal downtime. We pick the level of peel depending on your needs and desired results. Peels can have absolutely no downtime to perhaps three days of redness depending on how many microns we target in the treatment.
Located in Barrie and Midland in Ontario, Laser Health Works is led by Dr. Barb Loiskandl, Dr. Rainer Loiskandl and Dr. Darlene Newnham. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how a laser micropeel can help improve your skin texture and discoloration.
What is a Microlaser Peel/Arctic Peel?
During the laser micropeel process, gentle laser settings are used to remove thin layers of skin in treated areas, revealing a fresh layer of skin underneath. During this process, the skin’s natural healing response is stimulated, leading to the production of healthy skin and the reduction of aged or discolored skin.
Laser micropeels can treat a wide range of skin imperfections, including:
- Brown spots and discoloration
- Dehydrated skin
- Areas of rough, dull skin
- Mild acne scars
- Fine lines and visible signs of aging
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
As this is a very tolerable experience, we will sometimes use a flow of cold air directed at the skin to increase patient comfort. This is referred to as an Arctic Peel. If preferred, a topical numbing agent may be used on the skin to increase patient comfort. As only thin layers of skin are removed at a time, this skin rejuvenation solution is often less invasive than other laser-based options.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Laser Micropeel?
Men and women who are experiencing dull or lackluster skin, fine to moderate lines, rough skin texture, mild scarring and other superficial skin imperfections and who have realistic treatment expectations may be good candidates for this procedure. Patients who have open wounds on the skin or who have darker skin types may require further evaluation before treatment is approved. You should also avoid sun exposure for a few weeks afterward, meaning this treatment may not be ideal for patients who about to go on vacation.
Is There Any Recovery Time?
After treatment, your skin may look and feel as though you have a slight sunburn, which is normal and a good indication that the skin’s healing response has begun. This side effect will subside within a day or so as fresh skin cells are generated and pushed to the surface.
How Long Will My Results Last?
As part of a normal beauty regimen, laser micropeels can be performed from one to four times a year to maintain your smoother, softer skin and to keep your visible signs of aging at bay. During your consultation, our medical team will advise a treatment plan for your individual condition.
