What to Expect With A Microlaser Peel:

  • Immediate and lasting results
  • Quick and painless procedure
  • Minimal down time

During treatment the laser precisely removes the outermost layers of skin at a set depth. The procedure is customized to the needs of each individual and to the specific skin conditions to be corrected, which include fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, irregular pigmentation and excessive sun damage.

Most people obtain smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin, with an immediate improvement in skin texture and tightness. Your skin will then continue to improve over time increased collagen stimulation in the deeper layers of your skin helps to repair and maintain your results.

The number treatments will depend on your skin condition and your goals. Typically, a single treatment reveals dramatic results that will often make your skin look years younger. Depending upon what your goals are you may need more than one treatment to achieve optimal results, but you can judge that with Dr. Patel along your treatment plan. Dr. Patel will recommend the number of treatments needed for you to achieve your desired result during your consultation where he will formulate an individualized treatment plan to meet your specific needs.

Generally, the least invasive MicroLaser Peels (10-20 microns) may be performed four to six weeks apart until you achieve your results. Deeper MicroLaser Peels may be performed from six weeks to a year as they treat deeper layers of the skin that require time to recover.

Healing occurs rather rapidly. In most cases, a 10- to 30- micron peels will heal in one to five days. The treatment can be done on a Thursday or Friday so you can easily return to work the following Monday. This is why MicroLaser Peel is sometimes known as “the Weekend Skin Peel”.  Immediately following the procedure you may experience redness resemble a sunburn, with minor flaking on Day 2. Redness will begin to fade by Day 3 and can be covered with makeup on Day 4.

You can have the procedure performed after a topical anesthetic is applied 30-45 minutes before your treatment. You can rest comfortable and read during this time or take a nap. For deeper peels you may need oral sedation but Dr. Patel will review this with you during your consultation based on your skin type and goals.

Comparing a MicroLaser Peel to other treatments:

  • Long lasting results
  • Limited recovery tim/li>
  • Less risk

Unlike conventional CO2 lasers, the advanced Sciton laser system enables a Laser Specialist such as Dr. Nikesh Patel to customize a specific treatment plan for each patient rather than simply treating with preprogrammed setting. This allows for more accuracy and efficacy in your treatment and yields longer lasting results.

In comparison to other skin resurfacing methods, a MicroLaser Peel results has much less post-treatment redness and swelling, and offers a more rapid healing process that generally lasts from one to five days, depending on the depth of the peel. After the procedure the treated area will resemble varying degrees of sunburn for up to three days based on the depth of treatment. Any discomfort can be easily controlled with over-the-counter medication. Sunblock should be applied when in the sun.

One of the best benefits of the MicroLaser Peel when compared to conventional laser resurfacing is that patients heal in a fraction of the time. This is because the procedure produces minimal tissue damage, resulting in less flaking, oozing, and swelling after treatment. You can be out and socializing in less than a day in many cases.

You can have the procedure performed after a topical anesthetic is applied 30-45 minutes before your treatment. You can rest comfortable and read during this time or take a nap. For deeper peels, oral sedation may be suggested, but Dr. Patel will review this with you during your consultation based on your skin type and goals.
