Now you can have younger looking, healthier feeling skin with a popular new treatment – the MicroLaserPeel ™ .
The “weekend” laser skin peel, the MicroLaserPeel, treats skin conditions associated with aging and an active lifestyle, as well as superficial acne scarring. You can see real improvements in just a few days.
What is the MicroLaserPeel?
It is an intra-epidermal 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 conditions such as: wrinkles, scars, acne scars, keratoses, or pigmentary problems have been very successfully treated with a MicroLaserPeel.
Who Should Consider a MicroLaserPeel?
If you are looking for much more than microdermabrasion or light chemical peels, and do not have the time for the prolonged healing process of laser resurfacing (or if your skin condition does not warrant a resurfacing), then the MicroLaserPeel was designed for you.
How is the MicroLaserPeel different from Microdermabrasion?
Generally, microdermabrasion only removes the stratum corneum, the most superficial layer of skin (10 microns deep). The MicroLaserPeel is a partial- to-full epidermal peel (20-50 microns) and is performed with topical anesthetic. Because this procedure ablates deeper into the epidermis, it is the perfect step between microdermabrasion and full skin resurfacing.
How many MicroLaserPeels can be done?
Typically, the procedure can be repeated 2-3 times, spaced 6-8 weeks apart, but many peels may be done to achieve the desired result. Many patients are satisfied with the results of just one peel, however, because the results are so much more dramatic than what they have experienced with spa-procedures like microdermabrasion or light “fruit-peels”.
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 or light peels.
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 sunburn, with minor flaking on the second day. Redness will begin to fade by the third day, and be easily covered by makeup on the fourth day.
Lighter (20 micron) micropeels are done for those looking for freshing of the skin, without any significant sun-damage. Patients often return to work the next day after one of these laser peels.
What should I know about pre- and post-treatment care?
The doctor will provide you with very detailed pre- and post-treatment information.
20 Micron Micropeels are $650, including anesthetic.
30-50 Micron peels are $900, including anesthetic.
