Micro Laser Peel
A Micro Laser Peel is designed to provide patients with smoother, younger-looking skin without the downtime associated with more invasive procedures. While the majority of patients opt to have a Micro Laser Peel done to their face and neck, it’s safe and effective for treating cosmetic concerns elsewhere on the body including the chest and hands. Your procedure is highly customizable and can be as gentle or advanced as you’d like.
A Micro Laser Peel Can Treat:
- Age spots
- Redness and rosacea
How Does It Work?
Dr. Harris’ laser and light experts will perform your Micro Laser Peel during a short in-office visit. Although actual treatment may only take 15-30 minutes, you should plan to be there at least an hour to account for anesthetic application. A computer-guided beam to scan over the treatment area. Intense laser energy removes a thin layer of damaged skin to stimulate collagen production and resurface the skin tissue. Each layer is gently and uniformly removed to make way for fresh cell growth.
When Can I Expect to See Results?*
In most cases, you’ll see results from your Micro Laser Peel within 2-7 days. Continued improvement will gradually occur over the course of 3-6 months due to increased collagen levels. Desirable results can be obtained in just one treatment, however, the number of treatments needed may vary from person to person. More severe cosmetic concerns may take upwards of 2-4 treatments spread 6-8 weeks apart. Maintenance procedures can safely be done on an annual basis or as needed.
Does It Hurt?*
A topical anesthetic is applied 30-45 minutes before your Micro Laser Peel to minimize discomfort. Most patients feel an intense warming sensation throughout the procedure and for 30-minutes afterward. Your skin may feel raw to the touch (similar to a sunburn) for 1-2 days post-treatment. Any discomfort during this time can be easily controlled with pain medication.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you have any of the above skin conditions and would like to get results without extensive downtime, a Micro Laser Peel may be right for you. Men or women who are in good general health, are non-smokers and have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for them typically have the best outcome.
