What is the Micro Laser Peel?

It is an intra-epidural micro laser peel that precisely ablates the outermost layers of the skin. The procedure is individually tailored to the nature of the condition to be corrected. Skin condition such as: wrinkles, scars, acne scar, keratoses, or pigmentary problems have been very successfully treated with a Micro Laser Peel.

Who should consider a Micro Laser Peel?

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

How is the Micro Laser Peel different from Microdermabrasion?

Generally, microdermabrasion only removes the stratum corneum (10 microns). The Micro Laser Peel is a partial to full epidermal peel (20-50 microns) and is performed with the topical anesthetic. Because the procedure ablates deeper into the epidermis, it is the perfect step between microdermabrasion and full skin resurfacing.

How many Micro Laser Peels can be done?

Typically, the procedure is repeated 2-4 times, spaced 6-8 weeks apart, but many peels may be done to achieve the desired result.

What can you expect?

You will experience smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin, with a significant, immediate change in skin texture and tightness as compared to microdermabrasion.

How long is the healing process?

Healing takes 3-4 days. The procedure can be performed on a Thursday or Friday, so you can return to work the following Monday. Symptoms immediately following the procedure resemble a sun burn, with minor sloughing the second day. Redness will begin to fade by the third day, and be easily covered by make-up on the fourth day.

What should I know about pre and post treatment care?

Your physician or licensed nurse will provide you with very detailed pre- and post- micro laser peel treatment information.
