If you are looking for a more significant improvement than with basic facial therapies like microdermabrasion or light chemical peels, and you have little time for healing, consider a MicroLaserPeel. Our Albany medical spa clients enjoy effective treatment of wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, keratoses, and pigment problems. Your skin will be smoother, healthier, and more vibrant with a significant, immediate improvement in skin texture and tightness.
Another skin rejuvenation option is BBL photo rejuvenation therapy, which improves skin tone and eliminates unwanted pigmentation by penetrating beneath the skin to the collagen and excess melanin. We can give you even more impressive improvements by following the MicroLaserPeel, which corrects superficial irregularities, with ProFractional Therapy™ to enhance the skin's collagen.
A topical anesthetic is applied to your skin 30 to 45 minutes before the procedure for added comfort. As with our other laser resurfacing treatments, your eyes will be protected with safety shields. The physician will then hold the MicroLaserPeel hand-piece over the targeted areas as the laser emits brief pulses. Bandages are not required afterwards, but you will need to apply a prescription ointment for a few days to protect your treated skin. After that, a moisturizer can be used.
While a single treatment provides excellent results, you might need a package of 3 to 4 treatments for optimal results. Your physician will determine what is necessary during your consultation.
Because healing takes just 3 to 4 days, many people have their MicroLaserPeel performed on a Thursday or Friday and return to work the following Monday. Immediately following the procedure, your skin might look like you have a sunburn. You will have minor sloughing and itching on the second day. Redness will begin to fade by the third day and can be easily covered by makeup on the fourth day.
