Micro Laser Peels Can Help You Look Younger And Minimize Lines And Wrinkles

If you wish that your skin was smoother and looked healthier, consider undergoing a microlaser peel. This minimally invasive procedure uses laser energy to resurface the skin by removing the damaged outer layers. The result is an appearance that looks younger and rejuvenated. This state-of-the-art technique reduces skin blemishes like fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and sun spots by using short bursts of laser energy. Many patients find that micro laser peels result in significant improvements in the tone, texture, and pigmentation of their skin.

The technique takes only about an hour and can be performed right in the doctor's office. First, a topical numbing cream is spread over the surface of the skin to ease discomfort. Depending on the depth of the peel, an oral sedative or local anesthetic may also be used. While the most popular treatment areas are the face, neck, and hands, microlaser peels can be performed on nearly any area of the body, wherever you have skin blemishes you wish to treat.

Unlike most other techniques for skin resurfacing, one of the benefits of microlaser treatments is that the doctor can precisely control the depth of the peel, or how much skin is removed. The laser device is set at a particular depth according to each patient's individual needs. Some skin blemishes can be treated by a light, superficial peel, while others require a deeper peel because the damage extends further into the skin.

Once the anesthetic has been delivered, the doctor will begin treatment by holding a handheld laser device against the skin. This device emits pulses of laser energy which will enter the targeted area of skin. This energy vaporizes the outermost skin layer, including dead skin cells and superficially damaged skin. Because the treatment removes the outermost layer of skin, it is known as an 'ablative' technique. This energy also heats the layers of skin within the body, stimulating the production of collagen, a key structural element of the skin.

Microlaser peels are not painful, and you should feel minimal discomfort, thanks to the anesthetic used. Some patients do feel a slight stinging sensation as if a rubber band was snapping against their skin. After the doctor has finished treating the skin with the laser, patients are free to return home immediately.

One of the benefits of microlaser peels, when compared with other skin resurfacing procedures, is the short recovery period. For the first two to five days, depending on the depth of the peel, you may experience some redness and swelling. The newly revealed skin will feel as if it is sunburned, and it will be sensitive to the sun, so sunblock must be worn whenever you are outdoors. Some patients take a few days away from work to allow the side effects to subside, while others return to work on the same day as the treatment.

After undergoing laser skin peels, you will find that your skin appears healthier, smoother, and rejuvenated. Immediate improvements in skin texture and pigmentation are often noticed, while further improvements occur over the next six months, as collagen production improves, strengthening and smoothing the skin. While many patients find that one microlaser peel is enough to achieve their desired results, others undergo two or three additional peels until they are satisfied with the texture, tone, and pigmentation of their skin.

What Can You Expect At A Microdermabrasion Spa?

Microdermabrasion spas have become a popular alternative to home products for people with damaged or neglected skin. Home products are great for everyday maintenance, but some cases call for professional measures.

Store-bought products aren't enough to treat skin that has been overexposed or damaged by a severe case of acne. Some skin care clinics and spas are owned or operated by a licensed esthetician who has the training and tools needed to give you the absolute best treatments even if you suffer from very badly damaged skin.

What is Microdermabrasion?

The microdermabrasion is a fairly straightforward process. Human skin is constantly shedding the outer layers and the dead skin cells can build up over time and remain on the surface. As this layer of dead skin cells builds, it reduces the body's production of new skin cells.

When the outer layers are removed the skin increases collagen production and starts to rebuild itself. The end result is skin that is firmer and thicker, making it much healthier.

Keeping this outer layer of dead skin removed encourages the body to keep producing new skin, which is healthier and more youthful in appearance. If the dead skin is left on the body, the healthy skin beneath it will become thinner and start to sag, creating wrinkles.

Why Should I Get Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion has numerous benefits. Even for people with healthy skin, microdermabrasion can help fight the natural signs of aging that everyone experiences. In addition to having a healthier appearance, removing the outer layer of dead cells will help the skin absorb moisture better and make-up will go on smoother.

If you have scarring from acne or spotty coloration of the skin, microdermabrasion can help rebuild new tissue and reduce hyper-coloration. From fine lines and wrinkles to acne scars, microdermabrasion can be an effective treatment for most skin conditions.

Can I See Just Anyone?

The process of microdermabrasion used to involve ground up stones and shells, but has recently evolved to use diamond-tipped tools and particle-free brushes. Some microdermabrasion spas also take advantage of the exfoliation process and include an infusion to increase the effect of the treatment. This entire process is best performed by a specialist who knows exactly what you need to get healthier skin and has the tools and knowledge to give you the best results.

Having suffered from a serious skin condition is not a requirement for seeking a specialist for microdermabrasion. If you have noticed the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles from the natural process of aging, you are already a candidate for microdermabrasion.

If you have had major issues with your skin, getting a treatment to reduce the appearance of scarring can be a big confidence boosting experience. Your face is what you use to communicate with the world and when you feel good about how you look you can literally put your best face forward.
