Who is a Candidate for NanoLaserPeel® or MicroLaserPeel®
Is your skin looking dull and lackluster with some blemishes and fine lines? Are you seeking more substantial or faster results than you may be achieving with microdermabrasion or chemical peels alone? NanoLaserPeel® and MicroLaserPeel are the next level of aggressiveness in the continuum of treatments to improve your skin tone, texture and color. Fortunately, either of these cosmetic laser skin procedures only take 30 minutes, and can even be done over your lunch break. If these benefits sound suitable to your goals, you may be a great candidate for either NanoLaserPeel™ or MicroLaserPeel. When considering either of these cosmetic laser peels, it’s important to understand the wide variance of treatment intensity and downtime you can choose from, depending on your needs. For example, the downtime associated with this highest strength MicroLaserPeel is typically 5-7 days; as it’s essentially a medium depth full skin resurfacing procedure.* A MicroLaserPeel can range in intensity from 10 to 30 microns. At the 4-10 micron low intensity level, this procedure is termed a NanoLaserPeel™, and downtime is 24-72 hours.* Results and downtime of a NanoLaserPeel™ are similar to what you might experience from several microdermabrasion treatments done all at once. Thus, you are more likely to want to do a series of treatments at this intensity level or use it as a quarterly skin maintenance program.
The Science of NanoLaserPeel and MicroLaserPeel
The science is the same whether you opt for a NanoLaserPeel™ or the more intense MicroLaserPeel. With both treatments, a laser beam scans your desired treatment area to precisely ablate (i.e., vaporize) a very thin layer of skin, as it removes old, damaged tissue. This eliminates some of the old cells that can give skin a tired, aged look with superficial blemishes and pigment irregularities.
Sciton tunes MicroLaserPeel® full skin resurfacing to a precise light-to-medium depth. As your skin heals post-treatment, fresh skin cells grow to resurface the treated area. The result is healthier-looking skin, often with reduced fine lines and wrinkles and more even color tone.
Laser Peels for Light Resurfacing
Superficial skin resurfacing with a NanoLaserPeel™ or MicroLaserPeel is a quick, safe and effective treatment. Popular treatment areas are generally on the face and neck, though some people also treat the chest and backs of hands, or even your full body. Our Sciton Laser Peels effectively treat the following skin conditions:*
- Mild wrinkles
- Keratosis (i.e., looks like “goose bumps”)
- Sun damage (i.e., brown spots)
- Other pigment irregularities
