Peel Off the Signs of Time
What are peels?
As we age, our skin cells begin to lose moisture and collagen production is reduced. Peels are treatments used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin, removing wrinkles, enlarged pores and spots. During a laser peel, the superficial layers of the skin are gently removed to promote regeneration of the skin, resulting in a smoother more youthful look.
What are laser peels?
Laser peels can remove nearly all fine wrinkles, while significantly improving deeper, more dynamic wrinkles. The laser beam gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the epidermis while thermally affecting deeper skin layers to stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis.
Why choose a laser peel?
With laser peels, the operator has the ability to completely customize the treatment, by controlling the depth and region of your treatments. This results in a treatment catered specifically to your needs.
What can expect from the treatment?
Each person is different, but during the treatment, you can expect minimal to mild discomfort. Immediately following the treatment, you may experience some redness and a sunburn-like sensation, depending on your customized treatment settings. Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately as the mild redness and sunburn-like sensation will only last for a few hours. Some more aggressive treatments may have redness and mild swelling for 2-3 days. It is best to avoid direct sun for a few days following treatment and to apply sunscreen at all times while outdoors.
