Micro Laser Peels Provide Laser Resurfacing Alternative
Overtime, age and sun damage can contribute to skin imperfections that nobody enjoys. Acne scarring, wrinkles, melasma, fine lines, and sun spots all prevent skin from looking its best. Cosmetic skin treatments are used to help eliminate these negative effects and keep men and women looking and feeling their best. Several exfoliation treatments are available for patients who want to improve their skin’s surface appearance and reduce signs of aging. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels are procedures that both use non-invasive techniques and produce similar revitalized results. At Laser Lights, we also offer micro laser peels as a third, more aggressive non-surgical treatment option.
The micro laser peel uses Erbium laser technology to remove the outermost layers of skin, eliminating dead skin and stimulating collagen growth in the skin’s deeper layers. Like microdermabrasion and chemical peels, micro laser peels are non-invasive and require little to no downtime. It’s often referred to as the “weekend peel” because downtime is so minimal that most patients can return to normal activities with makeup after 24 hours. Many patients choose the micro laser peel because it provides immediate results and does not require ongoing treatments.
Microdermabrasion uses diamonds or crystals to exfoliate dead cells from the outermost layer of skin, while chemical peels use various acid solutions based on your specific skin needs to remove the top-most layer of skin. Micro laser peels use light technology to “peel off” the top layers of skin and allow the body to naturally revitalize skin. Micro laser peels are the optimal choice for patients looking for deeper results than microdermabrasion or chemical peels, but aren’t ready for the more invasive nature of laser treatments like CO2. Our Erbium laser penetrates the first three layers of skin to treat problem areas and promote collagen production. This treatment is available for the face, as well as the neck, chest, and hands.
