What is it and how does it help?
If you’re looking for better results than microdermabrasion or light chemical peels offer, but don’t want an overly long healing time, you should consider a MicroLaserPeel. MicroLaserPeel treatments can really help fine wrinkles, scars, keratoses and pigmentation problems.
How does it work?
A MicroLaserPeel carefully and precisely removes the outermost layers of troublesome skin. Using an Er:Yag laser which delivers infrared beams with a wavelength of 2940nm, this procedure can vapourise skin tissue layer by layer. Sophisticated computer technology fixes the laser parameters such as depth and scan pattern to ensure the best possible results.
How is the MicroLaserPeel different from Microdermabrasion?
Generally, microdermabrasion only removes the outer layer (stratum corneum, 10–15 microns) of the skin and patients may become dissatisfied when the perceived results do not equal expense and the number of procedures required. The MicroLaserPeel is a minimal to full epidermal peel (20–50 microns). Because this procedure goes deeper into the epidermis, it is the perfect step between microdermabrasion and deeper peels. The MicroLaserPeel is often combined with the Profractional Laser for even better results in skin rejuvenation.
Is a MicroLaserPeel suitable for everyone?
