What is a Laser Peel?

When skin starts to lose its youthful glow, many doctors are quick to recommend microdermabrasion or chemical peels, which remove a thin layer of skin and stimulate new growth. These tried-and-true methods are effective, but can’t hold a candle against Sciton’s cutting edge MicroLaserPeel™ and NanoLaserPeel™ technology. The laser instantly removes damaged skin cells and activates special messenger cells that trigger the body’s natural skin-renewal process.

What Can I Expect Before & During Treatment?

Your eyes will be covered with safety shields, the laser esthetician will position the handpiece above the skin, and begin a computer-guided process to treat the selected area. The entire process typically lasts 15-30 minutes. Pain is typically minimal because the laser does not penetrate deeply. A topical numbing cream will be applied if necessary.

How Long Is Recovery & What Can I Expect?

Depending on the areas treated, most patients experience noticeable improvements in tone, texture and even coloration in 3-4 days. Many patients schedule treatments on a Friday and return to normal activities by Monday, leading to the nickname “the weekend peel.” During this period, you should avoid all sun exposure as ultraviolet rays can disrupt recovery. You may be given topical skin care products to use during the first few days following treatment.

Emily is a true artist in her craft which is very hard to come by these days (take it from someone who has had questionable experiences). I was referred to her and am so thankful that I was, as she truly does take sincere care in her clients’ appearance and their experience as well.
