The new and effective facial rejuvination
Laser facial and body therapies continue to gain in popularity as safer and more effective technologies become available. The old days for good results and months of recovery have been replaced with excellent results and days or few weeks of recover. Lasers are devices that emit precise form of light. That precision allows them to affect specific components of body tissues. When the laser light is absorbed by the skin the laser energy is interacts with its target and causes the transformation. In some cases the target is destroyed (such as seen when pigmented lesions such as freckles, moles or tattoos are treated) or modified and weakened (such as seen when excessive blood vessels or hair is treated). In a sense, laser therapy can be used to affect and modify individual components of the skin allowing the physician to tailor the technique used to the problem being treated.
What is the Laser MicroPeel?
Laser MicroPeel is a new and precise way to remove the outermost layers of the skin. The thickness of epidermal removal can be individually tailored to each patient and the condition been corrected. The most common condition treated are: wrinkles, scars, acne scars or pigmentary problems such as mottles brown spots. Who Should Consider a Laser MicroPeel? Anyone who is looking for more skin improvement that can be achieved by topical creams, light chemical peels or microdermabrasion should consider Laser MicroPeel. Its ability to results in fresher, more rejuvenated appearance of the skin has been confirmed in our hands and others.
What can you expect during and after Laser MicroPeel?
During the treatment, you will experience mild discomfort. It can be managed very well with cool compresses and topical numbing cream. The subsequent healing will take 3-4 days. Immediately following the procedure the skin looks like a sunburn with flaking on the second day. Redness will begin to fade by the third day, and be easily covered by makeup on the fourth day. When the procedure is done on a Thursday or Friday, you can return to work the following Monday or Tuesday. Following that you will experience smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin, with a significant, immediate change in skin texture and tightness.
How is the Laser MicroPeel different from Microdermabrasion?
In most cases, microdermabrasion only removes the most superficial layer of skin (10 microns deep). The Laser MicroPeel can be precisely tailored to remove desired thickness of the skin, from 10 to 60 microns. The use of topical anesthetic cream is recommended.
How many Laser MicroPeels can be done?
In most cases, the procedure can be repeated 2-3 times, spaced 6-8 weeks apart, but many peels may be done to achieve the desired result. Because of rapid recovery, patients frequently desire 3-4 Laser MicroPeels a year. Some patients are satisfied with the results of just one peel and they can just have one treatment followed by topical preparation and maintenance light chemical peels.
