Stephens Plastic Surgery is pleased to be offering the MicoLaserPeel® by Sciton.

What is the MicroLaserPeel®?

The MicroLaserPeel® is a superficial skin resurfacing process that removes a thin layer of damaged skin in order to improve the texture and provide a more youthful appearance of the skin surface. It provides superior results with minimal downtime or recovery because it can be applied with great accuracy. The procedure is performed in office by a licensed aesthetician and can be custom programmed to specific skin conditions.

How does the MicroLaserPeel work?

The MicroLaserPeel’s electromagnetic beam is carefully metered over an area to be treated. The laser wavelength is calibrated to a specific depth which removes the top layer of some of the damaged skin cells that make you look aged and tired. As the skin begins the healing process, fresh new skin cells begin to grow and resurface the treated area. The results provide reduced wrinkles, improved skin color consistency.

Virtually all skin areas can be treated using the MicroLaserPeel system. The most popular areas for treatment are the face, neck and décolletage, though some people also treat their hands.

How many treatments will someone typically need with the MicroLaserPeel?

Very good results may be obtained from a single treatment, however the number of treatments needed generally vary from person to person. A personalized treatment plan, based on your specific needs, can be combine with the MicroLaserPeel to further enhance the regimen.

What happens during the MicroLaserPeel® procedure?

The skin is cleansed on the treatment area and safety protector shields are provided for the eyes. The computer-guided scanner is positioned by the aesthetician and moved around the treatment area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the MicroLaserPeel® uncomfortable?

One of the major advantages of the MicroLaserPeel® is that it produces virtually no pain since it does not penetrate very deep into the skin or deep dermis. At its most basic settings, the majority of people will easily tolerate the treatment with no anesthetic numbing cream. At a deeper wavelength settings, a topical numbing cream can be used based upon the patient sensitivity.

What should I expect immediately after the treatment?

Immediately after the treatment you will notice that the skin has a “frosty” appearance. This is the dehydrated skin that will peel away within next few days following the treatment. You may experience some skin redness and a sensation resembling sunburn, as well as mild swelling.

How long will someone take to recover after having a MicroLaserPeel® procedure done?

Depending on the extent of skin depth the treatment was applied, most people feel extremely ready to return to work within as little as three to four days. This has cause the MicroLaserPeel® to be named the “the weekend peel.”

What aftercare is needed after a MicroLaserPeel®?

Proper medical skin care products can be used to help accelerate the healing process and prolong the positive effects of the MicroLaserPeel®. The skin can be somewhat sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so it’s important to avoid direct sunlight until fully healed. It is recommended that post-procedure a high-quality sun screen be used to prevent sun damage and premature aging of the treated areas.

When are results seen from a MicroLaserPeel®?

Since only the outer layers of skin are treated, most people notice a clearly defined improvement in skin tone, skin texture and color evenness in approximately three to four days.
