MICROLASER PEEL FOR TREATING ACNE

MicroLaser Peel® (MLP)
A MicroLaser Peel is a laser resurfacing treatment that targets the epidermal, or top layer, of the skin. MLP removes from the surface only a thin layer of damaged epidermal cells which contribute to skin's lack of clarity and aged appearance. With healing, and the naturally refreshing keratinization process, new skin cells reach the surface imparting a softer, more vibrant texture and improved clarity of color.

Following an MLP treatment, you will notice some flaking of the damaged skin cells as they peel away from the surface. You may also experience some skin sensitivity, redness and mild swelling. It is recommended that you avoid direct sun exposure immediately following the procedure. Your practitioner will recommend products to care for your skin post-procedure, including a sunscreen to protect against your skin's heightened sensitivity to UV light as it heals. The skin should heal within 3 to 4 days, and most patients feel confident in returning to normal activities and work after this time.

MLP can be used to treat most skin areas, and is effective for reducing the appearance of acne scars. Because MLP penetrates only the superficial levels of the epidermis, it is used without topical anesthetic and is nearly painless.

The treatment is usually complete in 15 to 30 minutes.
