According to a recent report published by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 70 percent of consumers are interested in noninvasive cosmetic dermatology procedures. Why? Non-invasive cosmetic dermatology allows you to maintain your vibrant, youthful appearance—and the confidence that comes with it—with little risk at all. Consumers are excited to learn that they can prevent fine lines and wrinkles and reverse some of the changes that have already occurred without going under the knife or spending time away from their daily routines.
Micro Laser Peels are a popular, noninvasive way to get bright, firm skin back. Here are some of the untold secrets of this innovative treatment.
A number of over-the-counter and prescription products can produce temporary alleviation of common skin complaints, but Micro Laser Peel can provide long-term benefits for more complex skin conditions. Age spots, sun spots, and even acne scars can be alleviated for years with Micro Laser Peel and appropriate skin care at home afterward, making it a great solution for consumers with hard-to-treat skin changes.
When it comes to many cosmetic treatments, including Botox and dermal fillers, maintenance is required relatively often. However, Micro Laser Peels remove the outermost layer of skin, revealing the new, undamaged skin beneath the surface. If you care for this healthy skin properly, you can wait as long as 10 years between treatments. This makes it one of the most cost-effective ways to dramatically improve your skin.
Small lifestyle changes and a couple extra steps in your daily beauty routine can help you extend your results. Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays by wearing quality sunscreen (and reapplying often) is one way to maintain your bright, youthful skin after a Micro Laser Peel. Additionally, drinking plenty of water, moisturizing your skin often, and eating a well-balanced, nutrient-rich diet can help make your results last longer, too.
Though laser treatments are most effective with repeat treatments, most patients achieve the results they desire in just a single Micro Laser Peel treatment. Patients with deeper or more severe skin damage may need more than one treatment, but our providers are usually able to plan in advance—so you know exactly what to expect before you get started.
Certain medical conditions (such as diabetes and cold sores), lifestyle choices (such as smoking), and medications (such as aspirin and Accutane) can put you at higher risk of complications or injury from Micro Laser Peel. Sharing everything with your doctor—even if you don’t think it’s important—can help you achieve the safest possible outcome and the best results.
We recommend cleansing your skin 2-3 times per day with SkinCeuticals Hydra Balm the first couple days after treatment. On day two, we commend using SkinCeuticals Epidermal Repair Cream to keep the skin well-hydrated as the damaged layers slough away.
The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery often recommends that Micro Laser Peels be performed in the fall because skin is sensitive to sun for approximately a year after treatment. Because winter days are shorter and the weather is a little cooler, most people are apt to spend more time indoors in the months immediately following a fall treatment. Now is the time to schedule your consultation in order to get onto the schedule this fall.
