Laser Peels

Light Laser Peel

Also referred to as the “Weekend Peel” (when done as a light peel) this requires only topical anesthetic and has very short downtime. Most patients return to work by Monday with refreshed, luminous skin. Unlike chemical peels with downtime dependent on exposure time and consistency of chemical formulation, a Nano Laser Peel can be highly customized for depth and coagulation to achieve the results and downtime desired. Like its sister treatment, The Micro Laser Peel, has a reliable effective erbium laser treatment that refreshes the skin with little downtime. No matter the intensity of the treatment patients can expect mild redness and/or swelling similar to a sunburn sensation along with tightness of skin. Sensation may last up to 8 hours after treatment, post care will be given prior to leaving. 

LP2


This treatment will reduce pore size, help fade fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone, and slightly fade brown spots.

If you are interested in beginning laser treatments but not sure where to start, a Nano laser Peel is a comfortable and precise way to get smoother and brighter skin. 


What Happens during Treatment?

The Nano Laser Peel is a short downtime, light treatment that removed the topmost layer of the stratum corneum, returning a natural smoothness and lustrous glow to the skin. During the treatment the erbium laser will evaporate the dead skin cells (plume) and will get suctioned into the smoke evacuator. You may have some residual peeling/flaking post treatment. Our gentle post care we provide along with our Growth Factor Repair Masks are recommended to improve results and speed up healing.
