Microlaser peels can brighten skin, smooth fine lines
A skin rejuvenating procedure is giving the boot to fine lines and wrinkles.
With microlaser peels, the outermost layer of the skin is removed. During the healing process, new skin cells form, improving the skin’s overall appearance.
“The peels smooth out lines and wrinkles and help to get rid of dead skin cells,” said Kathe Malinowski, lead esthetician and marketing manager for Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center.
Another perk of the procedure?
“The peels lighten up hyperpigmentation,” she said.
The state-of-the-art cosmetic laser skin procedure is ideal for the face, neck and chest.
Depending on skin type, condition and improvement goals, the depth of the peel can vary, from four microns to 50 microns.
“Generally four to six microns is a very light peel that will cause minimal peeling,” Malinowski said.
A depth of up to 10 microns is the most popular sought by Eterna MedSpa clients.
“You get a good peel with a 10 micron,” Malinowski said.
Those who have severe sun damage and a thick stratum corneum, or outermost layer of the skin, would be better suited for a depth of 15 to 20 microns.
The healing process depends on the depth of the peel.
“With all the peels you will be red the first day and then tight the next day,” Malinowski said.
She said a depth of four to six microns can take about a day to heal while a depth of 10 microns might take two days. A deeper peel can take a little longer.
For best results, the peels should be done in a series of three, with about six weeks in between each procedure.
