Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does Micro LaserPeel work?
A: The Micro LaserPeel beam is scanned over a treatment area to remove a very thin layer of the skin. Removing the top layer eliminates some of the damaged cells that can give skin a tired, aged look. As the skin heals, fresh cells grow and resurface the treated area. And the procedure usually lasts only 15 to 30 minutes.
Q: What areas of the body can be treated?
A: Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, though some people also treat the chest and hands.
Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, however the number of treatments needed may vary from patient to patient.
Q: What does the treatment feel like?
A: At its most shallow settings, most people can tolerate treatment with no anesthetic at all. At deeper settings, a topical numbing cream is typically used.
Q: What should I expect immediately after the treatment?
A: You will notice that the skin has a "frosty" appearance. This is the dehydrated skin that will peel away over the next few days. You may experience some skin redness and a sensation resembling sunburn, as well as mild swelling. Sunscreen is recommended until fully healed, and you may be given skin care products and instructions.
Q: When should I expect results?
A: Most patients notice an obvious improvement in tone, texture and color evenness in 3-4 days.
