The Sciton MicroLaserPeel is the ideal solution for patients who wish to remove fine lines and wrinkles, without having to undergo extensive downtime. It produces instant and powerful results after a single session and leaves patients with a fresher, youthful looking appearance.
How does the MicroLaserPeel work?
The precise Yag laser beam is scanned over the desired treatment area in order to gently remove a very thin layer of the skin. This eliminates most of the damaged cells that often give skin a weathered, aged look. Once the skin begins to heal, new cells grow and resurface the area that has been treated. The result is vibrant skin with a healthier appearance, often accompanied by a marked reduction in wrinkles and even skin texture.
The targeted area of skin will be cleaned prior to starting treatment and safety shields are used to protect your eyes. Following these initial steps, your physician will position the MicroLaserPeel handpiece directly above the treatment area and it will be held in place as the state-of-the-art scanner moves the laser beam around the treatment area. Each procedure usually lasts between 15-30 minutes. One session is normally sufficient for visible results, although this depends on individual requirements and outcome goals.
Which Areas Can be Treated With the MicroLaserPeel?
While the majority of damaged skin areas can be treated, the most popular treatment areas are the face and neck, although some people also choose to treat their chest and hands. Individual needs and requirements can be discussed with your physician during your pre-treatment consultation.
Does the Procedure Hurt?
One of the major advantages of MicroLaserPeel is the minor discomfort patients experience due to the fact that it does not penetrate the skin deeply or aggressively. When the laser is on its most shallow setting, the majority of patients find they can experience a comfortable treatment without any kind of anesthetic. If a deeper setting is required, a topical numbing cream can be applied to minimize any pain you might experience.
