MicroLaserPeel™ Procedure is the perfect step between Microdermabrasion and Full Skin ResurfacingMicro Laser Peel machine.
The MicroLaserPeel™ procedure was designed for those wanting more than microdermabrasion or light chemical peels, and have little time for a prolonged healing process. We are able to treat skin conditions such as wrinkles, scars, acne scars, laxity on face, neck and chest, keratoses, and pigmentary problems with a MicroLaserPeel (MLP). Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons agree that microderma-brasions only removes the patient’s stratum corneum (dead and dying cells) and the MLP is much more impressive.
The Micro Laser Peel is a partial epidermal peel 10-50 microns deep. Because this procedure ablates deeper into the epidermis, it is the perfect step for patients seeking results between microdermabrasion and full skin resurfacing. Typically, the procedure is repeated 2-4 times, spaced 6-8 weeks apart; but many peels may be done to achieve the desired result. Healing takes 3-4 days.
The procedure can be performed on a Thursday or Friday, so the patient can return to work the following Monday. Symptoms immediately following a Micro Laser Peel resemble a sunburn, with minor sloughing on the second day. Redness will begin to fade by the third day, and can easily be covered by makeup on the fourth day. Pain is generally minimal and can be addressed if necessary with over-the-counter pain reliever.
