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.
