Micro Laser Peel
at Woodbury Dental and Laser Clinic in Kent
Micro Laser Peel is a procedure used in Woodbury Dental and Laser Clinic by Kent specialists for the precise removal the outermost layers of the skin (epidermis).
It is highly recommended for patients who want better results than the ones that can be achieved by light chemical peels or microdermabrasion in a quick way.
The micro laser peel treatment is used to address the following skin conditions:
- Problems with pigmentation
- Skin damage due to over exposure to the harmful rays of the sun
- Keratoses (pre-cancerous lesions)
Difference between Microdermabrasion and Micro Laser Peel
Microdermabrasion is responsible only for the removal the outer layer of the skin, or the epidermis, to treat specific skin problems or conditions. Although microdermabrasion is an ideal skin polishing procedure, more long-term visible effects on the patient’s skin will require deeper peeling. Micro Laser Peel, on the other hand, is a minimal-to-full epidermal peel; this procedure effectively goes deeper into the epidermis to address skin conditions, and is considered to be an ideal treatment between Microdermabrasion and deeper chemical peels. The effects of a single Micro Laser Peel procedure can last for anywhere from six to12 months, but follow-up procedures can be performed as deemed necessary by the Kent cosmetic specialist.
The number of treatments involved in micro laser peel procedures will depend on the specific skin condition that needs to be addressed; the Kent specialist from Woodbury Dental and Laser Clinic will discuss the options and the number of treatments necessary to the patient, so that an appropriate schedule can be formulated and followed accordingly.
Benefits of Micro Laser Peel
- Micro Laser Peel improves the elasticity of the skin, resulting to a more youthful and more vibrant appearance
- Micro Laser Peel diminishes the appearance of acne scars, and improves the texture of the facial skin
- The micro laser peel procedure is virtually painless; if necessary, only a topical or local anaesthesia will be used in the area that needs to be treated, to ensure that the patient will not experience any discomfort during the procedure
- Micro laser peels can be used on the face, neck, hands, and on the chest
- Micro laser peels are proven to be safe for patients
- The micro laser peel treatment is an outpatient procedure, and the patient can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure is finished
- Micro laser peel is known to have fewer complications or side effects compared to other chemical peel treatments for the improvement of skin appearance
- The healing process after a micro laser peel is shorter compared to other skin peeling treatments, and the patient will experience less bruising, swelling, or redness of the skin. There is also no need to use a bandage of any type of dressing to cover the treated area after the procedure is finished; a protective barrier ointment is the only thing that will cover the treated area.
Micro Laser Peel Healing Process
The healing process after a micro laser peel will vary depending on the patient, but is expected to take anywhere from two to four days. Immediately after the procedure, you can expect to feel as if you have bad sunburn – but this is normal after the micro laser peel. You can also expect to have some minor sloughing and itchiness the following day. The second day will produce skin redness, which will quickly fade; by the third day, any signs of redness can be easily covered by cosmetics if desired.
