The MicroLaserPeel is the perfect treatment for those that want to enhance facial skin without committing to weeks of recovery time. A MicroLaserPeel is a procedure that is more effective than microdermabraision and less invasive than full laser skin resurfacing. A micro peel can remove damaged cells from the top layer of the skin and leave the patient looking noticeably younger.
The MicroLaserPeel uses a laser beam to ablate (or remove) the very top layer of skin in order to remove damaged tissue. It can be used to treat specific areas of the face to lessen the appearance of skin discoloration, wrinkles and scars. The MicroLaserPeel can also be used to resurface the entire face to perfect the skin tone and improve color evenness. The laser for the micro peel only penetrates the outer layer of skin so it causes little pain during the procedure and the recovery time is minimal. The MicroLaserPeel will vaporize the old, damaged skin cells and allow healthy new cells to rise to the surface. These new cells contain more elastin and less pigment so the treated area will be smoother and more consistently colored for a younger look. The results are superior to what can be expected from a microdermabrasion and can remove more skin flaws than clients often see immediate and lasting improvements.
What Skin Conditions does a MicroLaserPeel Correct?
The MicroLaserPeel can repair a number of common skin flaws such as mild wrinkles and scars, keratosis, sun damage and pigment irregularities. According to Dr. Dominic M. Castellano, a facial plastic surgeon in Tampa, the MicroLaserPeel can remove many superficial blemishes and correct skin tone to give a patient a fresher, younger appearance. “The Micro Peel is excellent for many patients that are just starting to show normal signs of facial aging or that have skin discoloration that they wish to eliminate. The light laser can remove acne scars, freckles, small wrinkles and moles, or simply help give skin a newer, brighter look.” Many patients find that their skin went from tired looking to vibrant after a MicroLaserPeel.
What can Patients Expect from MicroLaserPeel Procedure
The MicroLaserPeel can be done in our accredited medical offices in under an hour for most procedures. The patient can expect very little pain during the procedure and may need only a topical numbing cream for deeper laser treatments. In many cases, the results are excellent after just one treatment but some patients may need additional sessions to remove certain skin blemishes. As with any procedure, the results can vary from patient to patient.
The healing process can also differ among patients but in most cases, it takes two to four days to heal enough to return to work (or be out in public). For example, a procedure done on Thursday or Friday will generally allow the patient to return to work the following Monday. Right after the treatment, the skin will feel like a bad sunburn. The outer layer of skin will slough off and feel itchy the following day but by day two the redness will begin to dissipate. By day three and four, the redness will fade and be easily covered by make-up to allow the patient to return to work and activities in public.
