There are numerous laser treatments for skin rejuvenation. MicroLaserPeel is one of them. Acne scars can affect your appearance and impact your confidence, and the good news is you can consider MicroLaserPeel as an option. For the unversed, this is an erbium laser peel that works on the top layer of the skin called the epidermis, and the treatment is entirely individualized, depending on skin issues. MicroLaserPeel is particularly good for cicatrice d’acnée and signs of aging. In this post, we are sharing more on the procedure.
“Is MicroLaserPeel right for me?”
That’s often a common question that people have. The answer should come from an experienced dermatologist or aesthetician. In general, MicroLaserPeel is recommended to those who cannot consider or may not benefit from superficial chemical peels. Your expert will first consider easier options such as microdermabrasion, and if that is not found to be suitable, MicroLaserPeel may be recommended.
Is it same as microdermabrasion?
In case of microdermabrasion, around 5 microns from the surface of the epidermis is removed during the treatment, and there is no need for topical anesthesia. On the other hand, MicroLaserPeel works at a much deeper level – around 50 microns of the epidermis may be removed, and your aesthetician will use a special kind of numbing cream before the procedure. Most people who are ideal candidates for MicroLaserPeel can get benefits of the treatment after two sessions, and there is usually a gap of six to eight weeks between the sessions.
Is there any downtime?
Since MicroLaserPeel is more ablative, you can expect your skin to heal over the next few days. You may find redness, effects of sunburn immediately after the procedure, which is followed by peeling on the next day. The effects of the treatment should subside within the next three to four days. Your dermatologist may recommend you to avoid makeup products and skincare items for at least a few days after the treatment.
MicroLaserPeel is one of the advanced treatments for acne scars and signs of aging, and not everyone is suitable for this. Do your homework and select a clinic, which is rated well by other clients. Make sure that you ask all relevant questions, including sessions required, which determines the cost of the treatment. Better than superficial peels for sure, MicroLaserPeel is considered to be great for deep acne scars, as at least 20 microns of the epidermis are removed.
