One of the few laser treatments that involve a minimal amount of downtime, The Sciton MicroLaserPeel™ is a great solution for patients looking to improve the overall quality of the skin as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
The Sciton MicroLaserPeel™ is an Erbium Yag laser capable of highly precise and customized treatment. The adjustability can go from a very low intensity, similar to a glycolic acid skin peel as well as something deeper such as a resurfacing laser. Each depth of treatment will have a different effect on the skin. This treatment is ideal for those looking for a short downtime period. A popular time to receive this procedure is just before the weekend, so your skin has a few days to heal while you’re at home.
The MicroLaserPeel targets skin imperfections and “vaporizes” due to the high-water content of the epidermis. Since this best treats the epidermis, it is ideal that this type of laser is used to treat superficial imperfections such as uneven tone, texture and line lines and wrinkles. The procedure itself is rather quick depending on the size of the treatment area and is also rather painless. The vaporization action of the laser helps soften and improve the site for all kinds of skin imperfections for a refreshed and rejuvenated look.
Typical downtime can range from two to seven days depending on the depth of the treatment. Right away you may look as if you have slightly sunburned skin. By the second day, any redness should be minimized after the second day, and easily covered by the third. After treatment, you should be sure that you have a few ways to protect your skin from the sun as it is more sensitive than other areas, especially while healing.
