WHAT IS A MICROLASERPEEL®?
MicroLaserPeel® is a laser treatment which uses an advanced computer-guided laser to safely remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells. MicroLaserPeel® is more gentle than full skin resurfacing, but deeper than microdermabrasion or chemical peels. MicroLaserPeel® is customized to each individual patient and the nature of the specific skin concerns being corrected. Certain skin issues such as fine lines, scars, age spots, or pigmentation problems can respond well to MicroLaserPeel® treatments at Concept Medical.
WHO SHOULD CONSIDER A MICROLASERPEEL®?
If you are looking for more results than microdermabrasion or light chemical peels, and want little downtime, then the MicroLaserPeel® at Concept Medical may be a good treatment option to consider. MicroLaserPeel® can benefit almost anyone looking for gentle skin rejuvenation, improvement in fine lines, complexion, and skin tone.
HOW MUCH TIME IS REQUIRED FOR A MICROLASERPEEL® TREATMENT?
A laser treatment of the face requires approximately 30 minutes. An anesthetic cream is applied to the skin for 60 minutes prior to the procedure to maximize your comfort.
HOW IS THE MICROLASERPEEL® DIFFERENT FROM MEDICAL GRADE PEELS?
Chemical peels and microdermabrasion remove the most superficial layer of skin cells, and have no associated downtime. MicroLaserPeel® is a slightly deeper peel which cannot be obtained with chemical peels or microdermabrasion. MicroLaserPeel® is an intermediate step between medical grade peels and deeper skin resurfacing. With the additional depth of treatments, comes improved results, but slightly longer downtime.
WHAT RESULTS ARE OFTEN SEEN AFTER A MICROLASERPEEL®?
Patient often experience smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin, with a subtle yet noticeable change in skin tone and texture. Patients may experience improvement after one MicroLaserPeel®, although multiple treatments may be necessary to obtain your specific desired results.
IS THE MICROLASERPEEL® UNCOMFORTABLE?
MicroLaserPeel® only requires a topical numbing cream. No other freezing or medications are required prior to treatment. No pain medication is required after this procedure. Following the procedures, patients will notice redness and a warmth sensation, similar to a mild sunburn.
HOW LONG IS THE HEALING PROCESS AFTER MICROLASERPEEL®?
Overall skin recovery generally takes up to one week, but varies slightly with each individual. For a few days immediately following the MicroLaserPeel® the skin has the appearance of a mild sunburn. Following this, a few days of exfoliation often occur, after which the skin takes on a healthy radiance and smoothness.
