Micro Laser Peel. . . .For smoother, healthier, and more vibrant skin. Micro Laser Peel 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, and pigmentary problems have been successfully treated with a Micro Laser Peel. If you are looking for more than a microdermabrasion or light chemical peels, have little down time for a prolonged healing process, then Micro Laser Peel is designed for you. Micro Laser Peel is performed with a topical anesthetic. Because this procedure ablates deeper into the epidermis, it is the perfect step between microdermabrasion and full skin resurfacing. Typically, the procedure is repeated 2-4 times, spaced 6-8 weeks apart, but several peels may be done to achieve a patient’s desired result. After a Micro Laser Peel you will experience smoother, healthier, and more vibrant skin, with a significant change in skin texture, and tightness. The healing process takes 3-4 days. Symptoms immediately following the procedure resemble a sunburn, with minor sloughing on the second day. Redness will begin to fade by the third day and be easily covered by makeup on the fourth day.
