Our Microlaser Peel utilizes a scanning erbium laser to remove the outer layers of your skin in a safe, precise manner. The dead skin cells are then replaced by healthier cells, improving the texture and clarity of the skin.
Patients experience results very quickly. Within a week, there will be a better “glow” to the skin, and results will continue to improve over the next 6 months.
Patients that combine treatments see better, faster results than doing one treatment alone. Talk to one of our professional team members today about potential cost savings when you book multiple treatments together!
How Does the Microlaser Work?
Utilizing an erbium scanning laser, a MicroLaser peel vaporizes skin to a desired depth. The body recognizes this as a wound and immediately begins to create new skin. Of course, the newly generated skin will look far better than the old skin. We use a topical anesthetic to make the procedure very tolerable.
We choose the depth of the peel based on your specific skin and how much downtime you can tolerate.
One of our trained providers cleans the skin and applies a numbing cream to the treatment area for approximately 45 minutes for patient comfort.
Your provider positions the predetermined depth of the MicroLaser Peel. Then they positions the laser handpiece above the skin and holds it in place as the computer-guided scanner moves the laser beam around the treatment area.
Once the treatment is done, we apply a light dressing (such as Aquaphor) to keep the skin moist. This will be used for 2-7 days, depending on the depth of the peel. Post care instructions will be given and thoroughly explained.
The Microlaser Peel promotes healthier-looking skin, often with reduced wrinkles and improved color evenness. Patients often report the Mircolaser peel transformed their skin from looking tired to vibrant.
MicroLaserPeels can be done as a stand alone treatment or in combination with other lasers, such as the Sciton ProFractional Laser or BBL.
