If you are looking for an effective way to reverse signs of aging and sun damage, reduce lines, wrinkles and scarring, and obtain more youthful, glowing skin, a laser peel may be the answer.
Lunchtime and Weekend Laser Peels use much milder powers than full-strength laser resurfacing treatments. This allows a milder treatment to be done, thereby avoiding the discomfort, crusting, weeping, inflammation, prolonged healing time and risks that occur with stronger resurfacing techniques. With these milder procedures, there is minimal discomfort and redness, and healing takes just a day or two. A series of four to six laser treatments are done, spaced every two to four weeks. These treatments are relatively mild, and risks are minimal.
Lunchtime & Weekend Peels
After a Lunchtime Peel, a mild redness resolves over the next day or two. After a Weekend Peel, slightly more redness resolves over two to three days, and there may be some flaking or peeling. After treatment, a moisturizing cream or ointment is applied as needed. Most normal activities can be resumed fairly quickly. After a series of Laser Peels, aging and sun-damaged skin is gradually removed and replaced by new skin and collagen. This results in an improvement of skin appearance, texture, tone, elasticity and color. Laser Peels are customized for each patient, and specific problems, such as acne scarring, can be addressed. Laser Peels can be done not only on the face, but on the back of the hands and on the chest (“decolletage”).
