Microlaser peels are minimal to full epidermal peels that are performed with a precision laser. These treatments safely and effectively remove the topmost layers of the dermis to reveal the brighter and more evenly-toned skin that lies beneath. Streamlined for meeting the needs of individual patients, the microlaser peel treatment can address moderate to severe acne scarring, keratoses, hyperpigmentation and more.
Microlaser peels can be significantly more effective for resolving cosmetic issues than either chemical peels or microdermabrasion. This treatment could be right for you if you’ve had limited success with other corrective measures and are willing to devote just a few days of downtime to the healing process.
Why Choose Microlaser Peels?
Many of the most effective cosmetic treatments rely on the use of controlled skin damage. The goal of these procedures is twofold: to remove dead, damaged skin cells and promote the proliferation of new and healthy skin cells for natural skin revitalization.
While microdermabrasion and chemical peels only target the outermost, superficial skin layers, a microlaser peel is a full epidermal peel that creates controlled damage at a significantly deeper level. As a result, it can resolve moderate to severe issues that other less-invasive procedures cannot, including extensive hyperpigmentation and deep and pitted acne scars.
What to Expect After a Microlaser Peel
Surprisingly, although microlaser peels are designed to address skin issues at a significantly deeper level than either chemical peels or microdermabrasion, the resulting downtime is actually fairly nominal. Any redness, peeling and slight irritation can be expected to last for just a couple of days after treatment. Moreover, no facial bandages are required. Our provider may give you a protective ointment to soothe and shield your skin during the first two days of the healing process. After this time, you can again use your normal moisturizer. Once the skin has fully healed, it will be noticeably brighter, clearer and far more vibrant and youthful-looking.
How to Know if the Microlaser Peel is Right for You
Commonly referred to as the “Weekend Peel”, the microlaser peel is an FDA-approved procedure for the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, keratoses and pigment issues. The best candidates for this treatment have feasible expectations concerning their potential results and the associated recovery times.
Microlaser peels are approved for use on many different skin types, including ethnic skin, dry skin and oily skin. During your consultation appointment, we can assess the severity and nature of your cosmetic concerns in order to tailor this treatment to your unique needs. Microlaser peels are great for people who have had only limited success with other restorative skin procedures.
