Micro Laser Peel is a technique that can offer cosmetic surgery patients a quick way to improve and revitalize the skin’s appearance.
Doctors are using the procedure to help eliminate fine wrinkles, scars, sun damage, Keratosis and skin pigment irregularities. The laser of a Micro Laser Peel is scanned over a treatment area to vaporize or ablate the top layer of skin. By removing the top layer of skin cells, patients have reported a revitalized skin appearance.
Patients typically do not need anesthesia for the most shallow settings on the laser, but for more deep settings a topical cream is used to numb the skin.
The procedure can be completed in less than a half an hour depending on the size of the treatment area. After Micro Laser Peel, patients may see a frosty appearance on the skin. The dead skin cells will peel away in the few days. Some patients have also reported slight swelling and the sensation of sunburn.
In many cases the desired result can be achieved in just one treatment, but doctors can help craft a more involved treatment plan if more procedures are needed.
