A MicroLaser Peel in St. Peters, MO, at Renaissance Plastic Surgery, is designed to be a superficial resurfacing treatment that removes a thin layer of damaged skin to improve not only your skin's texture but also to give your skin a brighter, more youthful glow. This laser gently removes the outermost layer of your skin and helps correct wrinkles, scars, keratosis, and pigmentation issues.
What is A MicroLaser Peel?
The treatment utilizes an erbium laser to remove the outermost layer of skin comprised of clogged pores, damaged skin, and dead skin cells. This gives way to healthy, new skin, improving the overall texture and appearance of your skin. MicroLaser Peels are great for people looking to reduce fine lines and improve skin texture and even skin tone.
How Does The MicroLaser Peel Work?
When you undergo a MicroLaser Peel, your doctor will apply a numbing cream about 20 minutes before the procedure to minimize pain and discomfort. They will then go in with the laser in tight rows to remove the outermost layer of skin. A MicroLaser Peel can be applied to the entire face or to select areas of concern, such as the mouth and laugh lines or around the eyes and crow's feet. Once the procedure is complete, the doctor will apply another layer of numbing cream to the residual pain and send you home. All in all, the treatment takes about one hour.
What Are Aftercare and Recovery Like?
After the procedure, you will be able to go home right away. There will be some residual redness and slight discomfort for about 24 hours after the procedure. Over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen should lessen any pain you may be experiencing. You should continue to apply an ointment, such as Aquaphor, for several days after to help heal and moisturize your skin.
