The Micro Laser Peel can improve your skin texture and give your skin a total rejuvenation

Laser peels are an outstanding way to improve a thin layer of damaged skin to promote the growth of beautiful, new skin on the face, neck, chest, back, and hands. The MicroLaserPeel can be used to help minimize and reduce:

  • Acne scarring and pits
  • Pigmentation problems and uneven coloration
  • Rough, raised areas on the skin (keratosis)
  • Scars
  • Shallow wrinkles
  • Sun spots (freckles), brown spots, and age spots

How does the MicroLaserPeel work?

A MicroLaserPeel skin resurfacing works by precisely directing a computer-guided light (or laser) beam over an area of skin to improve the thin, top, and often damaged layer. The treated top layer of skin then sloughs off to reveal a vibrant, new, fresh layer of skin. The MicroLaser Peel is a shallower peel than some others, but it can be administered at different (slightly deeper) settings to address your desires and the unique needs of your skin.

The MicroLaser Peel yields outstanding results with little discomfort. Shallow treatments require no anesthetic, whereas the deeper settings are sometimes accompanied with a topical numbing cream to ensure comfort.

Laser peel with MicroLaser technology usually takes 15 to 30 minutes in our Naperville area office, but it can take slightly longer depending on the size of the treatment area.

How many treatments will I need?

Most require multiple treatments.  This depends on the desired results and depth of treatment.

Typically, the procedure is repeated 2-4 times,  6-8 weeks apart, until the desired result is achieved

One procedure could be adequate for at least 6 -12 months, but additional procedures can be performed as required. A package of 3-4 treatments may be beneficial for you.

Prior to Treatment:

1. Prior to treatment, you should inform your provider if you have a history of Perioral Herpes (cold sores) so an antiviral may be prescribed.
2. Avoid waxing, facials, electrolysis, threading, extensive sun exposure or any laser treatments one week prior to procedure.
Stop all topicals, with the exception of a plain moisturizer, gentle cleanser and sunscreen 1 week prior to procedure.

5. If applicable, make sure area to be treated is clean shaven.
6. If using aspirin or blood thinners, please discuss prior to procedure

Recovering from a MicroLaserPeel

After your laser peel, you will likely notice that your skin has a white, dry appearance. You also might experience redness, tenderness, and minor swelling similar to mild sunburn. Your skin will begin peeling lightly within a day or 2 as fresh new skin cells begin replacing the older, damaged skin in the treated area. Any peeling and flaking in the days after your MicroLaserPeel can be managed with a soothing, gentle, nonalcohol-based ointment or cream.

Immediately after treatment, you should apply a cold compress to help reduce redness and inflammation. You also should avoid makeup, moisturizers, creams, and perfumes for several days or more until your skin has healed.*

You should avoid direct sunlight for several days after your laser peel. Once your skin has healed, you should use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more whenever you are outside to help protect the outstanding effects of your MicroLaserPeel treatment.*

Because most clients return to normal activities 3 to 4 days after the peel, it is often referred to as the weekend peel.*

You will see results within 3 to 4 days after your laser resurfacing procedure, including improvements in skin color, tone, and texture.*

Most clients achieve outstanding results with only 1 MicroLaserPeel, but some clients have more than 2 or more laser treatments to achieve their goals.*

*Disclaimer: With MicroLaserPeel treatments, there is no guarantee of specific results and the results may vary.
