If you are looking for more than Microdermabrasion or light chemical peel, and have little time for prolonged healing (with the CO2 Laser) then the microlaser peel is designed for you.
Generally Microdermabrasion only removes the stratum corneum (1st layer – 10 microns). Our Microlaser peel is a partial to full epidermal peel (20-50 microns). It is generally done without topical anesthesia, however topical or I.V sedation can be done for the procedure.
For maximum results the microlaser peels are usually stacked to receive maximum benefit.
You can expect smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin, with significant immediate change in skin texture and tightness. However we often combine the two treatment modalities for a greater ablation of the skin.
Healing takes 3-4 days, with the symptoms resembling sunburn. Minor sloughing will occur on the second day. Redness will begin to foods by the third day and can easily be covered with make-up.
