Micro Laser Peel
The Micro Laser Peel, or “weekend” skin peel, addresses conditions associated with sun damage and aging. As compared to microdermabrasion or light chemical peels, a Micro Laser peel is a deeper treatment that precisely removes the outermost layers of skin while treating wrinkles, scars, acne scars, keratoses, and irregular pigmentation.
The treatment uses topical anesthesia in Dr. Shapiro’s office and typically is repeated two to four times, spaced six to eight weeks apart. Healing takes three to four days and resembles a sunburn. The redness begins to fade by the third day and can be covered with makeup on the fourth. Patients experience smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin with a significant and immediate change in skin texture and tightness. A Micro Laser Peel is the perfect step between microdermabrasion and more aggressive full laser resurfacing.
