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 dry, superficial layers of the skin are gently removed to promote regeneration of the skin, resulting in a smoother more youthful look.
Laser peels can remove nearly all fine wrinkles, while significantly improving deeper, more dynamic wrinkles. The laser beam gently removes micron-thin layers of the epidermis while thermally healing deeper skin layers by stimulating the production of new collagen in the dermis.
Laser peels give you the ability to completely customize your treatment by controlling the depth and region of your treatments. This results in a treatment catered specifically for your individual needs.
Each person is different, but during the treatment, you can expect minimal to mild sensitivity. Immediately following the treatment, you may experience some redness and a warm sensation on the skin. Most people can resume their daily activities immediately as the mild redness, and warm 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.
