Micro Laser Skin Treatments are a light-to-moderate peel that removes the outermost layers of the skin. The treatment focuses wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, keratoses, and pigment problems. After the treatment, your skin will be smoother, healthier, and more vibrant with a significant, immediate improvement in texture and tightness.
A topical anesthetic is applied to your skin 30 to 45 minutes before the procedure for added comfort. Your eyes will be protected with safety shields. The physician will then hold the MicroLaserPeel hand-piece over the targeted areas as the laser emits brief pulses. Bandages are not required afterwards, but you will need to apply a prescription ointment for a few days to protect your treated skin. After that, a moisturizer can be used. While a single treatment provides excellent results, you might need a package of 3 to 4 treatments and/or combine other laser skin treatments for optimal results. Your physician will discuss what is necessary during your consultation.
Because healing takes just 3 to 4 days, many people have their MicroLaserPeel performed on a Thursday or Friday and return to work the following Monday. Immediately following the procedure, your skin might look like you have a sunburn. You will have minor sloughing and itching on the second day. Redness will begin to fade by the third day and can be easily covered by makeup on the fourth day.
