Micro Laser Peel Overview
What is the Micro Laser Peel?
Dr. Smith uses the latest technology to deliver safe, comfortable and effective treatment. The Micro Laser Peel procedure is customized to meet your needs and goals. Common problems that Dr. Smith treats using the Micro Laser Peel include:
- pre-cancerous lesions
- sun spots, brown spots, pigmentation concerns
- overall sun damage
Is Micro Laser Peel right for you?
The MicroLaserPeel is more intensive than microdermabrasion or most chemical peels, but still requires less downtime than CO2 skin resurfacing. Dr. Smith will evaluate your condition and determine if MicroLaserPeel is right for you.
What can I expect from the treatment?
Dr. Smith will deliver smoother, healthier and more vibrant skin with Micro Laser Peel treatment. Patients typically see a significant and immediate change in skin texture and tightness of their skin.
How long is the healing process?
Micro Laser Peel has a very short recovery time. After treatment, Dr. Smith will apply a protective barrier such as Calendula Ointment to keep the skin hydrated and protected.
After the Micro Laser Peel, your skin will be slightly pink and you may feel like you have a sunburn. The skin will begin to slough as it heals, this process may be accompanied by some itchiness or minor irritation. As the skin heals, you may experience minor sloughing and itchiness. This generally subsides within 2 to 4 days.
During the healing process, it is important to keep the skin hydrated. Dr. Smith will recommend a post-treatment skin care regimen to ensure the best outcome.
