The Micro-Laser Peel is a partial-to-full epidermal peel (20 to 50 microns) and is typically performed with topical anesthesia. Because this procedure peels deeper into the skin, it is the perfect step between HydraFacialMD and full skin resurfacing. Healing takes 1-2 days.
Symptoms immediately following the procedure resemble a sunburn, with minor sloughing on the second day. Redness will begin to fade by the third day, and be easily covered by makeup on the fourth day. Most patients have a series of treatments repeated 2-4 times, spaced 6-8 weeks apart.
