The Micro Laser Peel provides amazing results in terms of improvement in the color and texture of your skin.
What causes color and texture changes in the skin?
Over time your skin changes with age. One of the main changes is the skin growth cycle. When you’re young the skin turns over about every four weeks. As you age this process slows down and it takes longer for the skin to turn over. This leads to the buildup of clumps of dead skin cells on the surface. When you have a lot of these clumps it makes the texture rougher and more irregular, and it gives the skin a dull appearance. It can also clog pores and lead to acne breakouts. Often times these breakouts leave dark spots (which some people incorrectly call acne scars) that can take a long time to go away. At the same time sun exposure damages the skin slowly, leading to wrinkles and age spots. These changes can be treated with the Micro Laser Peel.
Micro Laser Peel Testimonial
What is a Micro Laser Peel?
A Micro Laser Peel is a simple treatment that uses a laser to remove a thin layer of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Removing the top layer eliminates some of the damaged cells that can give skin a tired, aged look. As the skin heals, fresh cells grow and resurface the treated area. The result is healthier-looking skin, often with reduced wrinkles and improved color evenness. People often say that it looks like their skin went from looking tired to vibrant.
What is the difference between a Micro Laser Peel and a chemical peel?
Unlike a chemical peel where a peeling solution is applied to the skin causing the skin to peel off a few days later, the Micro Laser Peel immediately evaporates the surface layer of the skin. The Micro Laser Peel provides superior results because the Micro Laser Peel can be administered with great precision of depth. The Micro Laser Peel treatment is performed in the office and can be custom tailored to your specific skin conditions and desired outcome.
What areas can be treated with a Micro Laser Peel?
Most skin areas can be treated with the Micro Laser Peel. Popular treatment with the Micro Laser Peel areas are the face and neck, though some people also treat the chest and hands. Discuss your needs with Dr. Alex.
How many Micro Laser Peel treatments to I need?
Dr. Alex recommends an initial series of six monthly Micro Laser Peel treatments intervals followed by one maintenance Micro Laser Peel treatment every three months after that.
How long is the recovery after a Micro Laser Peel?
Depending on the depth of treatment, most patients feel comfortable enough to return to work within 3 to 4 days after a Micro Laser Peel – an attribute that has given rise to the nickname “the weekend peel.”
What results should I expect after a Micro Laser Peel?
Since only the outer layer of your skin is treated with the Micro Laser Peel, most patients notice an obvious improvement in tone, texture and color evenness once the skin heals in approximately 3-4 days. The amazing results from the patient shown in the pictures here are after a series of four Micro Laser Peel treatments. As you can see from her testimonial, she is thrilled with her results.
Can I combine a Micro Laser Peel with other treatments or products?
Yes, the Micro Laser Peel can be combined with other treatments and products. The most common combination treatment is the Soft and Smooth Rejuvenation, which combines a Forever Young BBL IPL photofacial treatment with a Micro Laser Peel. Combining a Micro Laser Peel with a regimen of A E Skin products will further enhance the results. The most common products combined with a Micro Laser Peel include the Brightening Cream, Exfoliating Serum, and Triple Antioxidant Serum.
