MicroLaserPeel is the perfect tool for removing mild to deep wrinkles that are the result of photoaging.
It can be used to treat sun-damaged skin, fine lines, and acne scars. The procedure involves the precise application of laser energy, which removes a very thin layer of skin cells from the face or other areas. This stimulates collagen production and promotes healthier looking skin with minimal downtime.
The depth of the treatment is customizable up to 50um depending on the severity of the wrinkle with the addition of coagulation as an independent setting to improve the turgor of the skin. The procedure takes only a few minutes and the results are visible immediately. There is no need for anaesthesia or sutures and minimal risk of adverse reactions, making it an ideal choice for aesthetic treatments.
Overall, MicroLaserPeel gives you improved skin tone, texture, and wrinkles with minimum downtime and maximum safety. It can be used on the face, neck, chest, and hands to achieve a smoother, more youthful complexion. The recovery time is short compared to other laser treatments and you can expect to see a noticeable improvement in your appearance within weeks of the procedure. So if you’re looking for an effective way to reduce wrinkles, MicroLaserPeel may be just what you need.
Patients typically experience smooth, brighter, and more even complexion after treatment. Results may vary depending on the individual’s skin type and condition. For best results, many people opt for multiple treatments in order to achieve desired effects. MicroLaserPeel is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the skin and can help you look years younger than your actual age.
What is MicroLaserPeel?
A MicroLaserPeel is a quick and effective treatment that uses a special laser to address conditions on the top layer of your skin. The treatment removes a thin layer of damaged skin to improve texture and provide a more youthful appearance. It provides superior results because it can be administered with great precision of depth. The procedure is performed in our office and can be custom tailored to your specific skin conditions and desired outcome. Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, though some people also treat the chest and hands.
The following conditions can be treated with MicroLaserPeel:
How It Works?
The MicroLaserPeel’s laser beam is scanned over a treatment area to precisely ablate (vaporize) a very thin layer of skin, removing old, damaged tissue. Removing the top layer eliminates some of the damaged cells that can give skin a tired, aged look such as superficial blemishes and pigment irregularities. 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. Patients often say that it looks like their skin went from looking tired to vibrant.
Your skin will be cleaned in the treatment area and your eyes will be protected with safety shields. The physician will position the laser handpiece above the skin and will hold it in place as the computer-guided scanner moves the laser beam around the treatment area. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure usually
lasts 15 to 30 minutes.
One of the primary advantages of MicroLaserPeel is that it causes little pain because it does not penetrate very deep into the skin. At its most shallow settings, most people can tolerate treatment with no anesthetic at all. At deeper settings, a topical numbing cream is typically used.
Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, however the number of treatments needed may vary from patient to patient. Your physician can personalize a plan based on your specific needs and may chose to combine MicroLaserPeel with other aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.
Immediately after the treatment you will notice that the skin has a “frosty” appearance. This is the dehydrated skin that will peel away within next few days following the treatment. You may experience some skin redness and a sensation resembling a sunburn, as well as mild swelling. You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. It is recommended that you always use some level of solar protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.
Depending on the depth of treatment, most patients feel comfortable enough to return to work within 3 to 4 days – an attribute that has given rise to the nickname “the weekend peel.”
Because only the outer layer of skin is treated, most patients notice an obvious improvement in tone, texture and color evenness once the skin heals in approximately 3-4 days.

BBL light energy absorbs targets such as fine, broken vessels, rosacea and brown spots that are caused by an overproduction of melanin.
An active tan from the sun or tanning beds is not appropriate with a BBL treatment.
It is recommended that a person does not have sun exposure in the area being treated for three weeks prior to the treatment with BBL. Self tanners must be faded from the skin for at least a week to 10 days before treatment.
The number of treatments vary from each individual. We often combine other procedures to to further enhance the outcome.
