What Are the NanoLaserPeel and MicroLaserPeel?
The MicroLaserPeel and the NanoLaserPeel are both epidermal laser peels that are customized for the individual and their specific skin issues. These peels remove the damaged outer skin layers to expose fresh and beautifully unblemished skin.
What Skin Conditions Can the NanoLaserPeel and MicroLaserPeel Help With?
The NanoLaserPeel and MicroLaserPeel can help with many different skin problems, including fine lines and wrinkles, actinic keratoses, scars, pigmentation issues, rough skin texture, and more.
Who is a Good Candidate for a NanoLaserPeel or MicroLaserPeel?
People who suffer from skin problems that need more correction than a microdermabrasion or a lighter chemical peel can offer may be good candidates for a NanoLaserPeel or a MicroLaserPeel. The specific peel chosen depends on the skin condition and the doctor's recommendations. Both of these treatments can be a good choice for anyone who wants a significant skin improvement without a lot of downtime.
How Are These Treatments Different From Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion typically removes just the outermost layer of the skin. This simply doesn't allow enough correction for many people, especially if they struggle with skin issues like scarring. The NanoLaserPeel and the MicroLaserPeel can penetrate more deeply into the skin, from 20 to 50 microns depending upon the patient's needs. This type of treatment can be the ideal middle ground between microdermabrasion and the deepest types of peels.
What is Recovery Like After a NanoLaserPeel or a MicroLaserPeel?
The NanoLaserPeel requires only a couple of days of downtime, and the MicroLaserPeel may require around 2 to 4 days of downtime. If patients time the peel right, they can often have the treatment on a Friday and be back at work on Monday with no problems. Some swelling and redness may be obvious for a day or so after treatment, but sleeping in an elevated position can alleviate this issue.
