MicroLaser Peel Treatment for Radiant Skin
As we age, the effects of sun damage and environmental pollutants take their toll on our skin, creating wrinkles and pigment irregularities, especially on our faces. A Laser Peel can be very successful at reducing or eliminating these conditions, and in fact it is the best way to address the problematic lines that occur around the mouth and eyes. Though there are several different types of lasers used to perform peels, the Sciton Contour TRL (laser peel) is widely regarded as the safest, most effective laser available.
This treatment being referred as “the weekend peel” due to the 3-4 days of social downtime. Over a series of treatments, scars and wrinkles are softened and blotchy pigmentation becomes even. Deeper laser peel treatments are available which can increase recovery time to 3 or more weeks depending on the depth.
When the skin is treated with the Sciton Erbium laser, a clean, layer-by-layer vaporization of the skin occurs. The undesired skin literally evaporates due to the high water content of the epidermis. The laser is, therefore, best-suited for those skin conditions which are superficial in nature, such as fine lines and wrinkles, blotchiness (or dark and light patches), keratoses (pre-cancers), scaling, acne scarring, etc. The skin in these conditions is resurfaced or “rejuvenated” by the vaporizing action of the laser.
The procedure takes about 1-hour including time to numb the face (topical). The initial healing process takes place over 2-7 days for lighter peels and up to 3-4 weeks for deeper peels. The result is younger looking “new” skin. Because the Sciton Erbium laser is so precise, the risk of scarring or other complications (such as infection) is minimized.
