Microlaser peel differs from many other lasers because the depth can be adjusted for each person based on the amount of the damaged skin and the speed of recovery that one desires. Microlaser peels can be done very mildly to medium depth. It also differs from chemical peels in that it ablates the skin. With a chemical peel the depth can vary with little to no control, however with Microlaser peel the depth is uniform throughout the area that is being treated. Some individuals wish to have a mild treatment with a medium depth to specific areas of the face. For example, an individual may wish to have a stronger treatment around the eyes, or the mouth or perhaps the neck. Using Microlaser peel this is possible. Microlaser peel is done with exact precision.
Healing time is generally rapid with Microlaser peel. Most individuals experience red to pink skin for 24-72 hours and make-up can be applied the next day if desired. Microlaser peel is painless once a topical numbing cream is applied and feels similar to slight sunburn after the treatment. Depending on the severity of the skins condition,1-5 treatments are recommended and spaced anywhere from 2-4 weeks apart. Results are seen with only one treatment but again, it will depend on the severity of the damaged skin.
Microlaser peel can be used to treat a variety of skins conditions and is best used for tightening of the face, chest and neck and the treatment of sun damage, scarring and wrinkles. Microlaser peel will leave the skin soft, smooth, even toned and revitalized. The results from the laser will last years and it is a wonderful alternative to neck and face lifts. Microlaser peel is a non-invasive treatment that requires little after care. An anti-biotic cream will be given to be used for a few days to a week after treatment in the evening so one can apply make-up the next day. It is safe to return to work the next day; however, the sun should be avoided immediately after the treatment and sunscreen should be applied to the treated area daily.
