Once the final days of summer are over, you may begin to notice the unfortunate side effects from being in the sun and sand all season. Fine lines and wrinkles age us more than we would like, and dark spots from sun damage or hormones leave skin looking dull and tired. Fortunately, laser peels can provide the rejuvenation your skin needs, leaving you with a youthful and refreshed glow.
What is a laser peel?
A laser peel utilizes laser energy to target deep layers below the skin’s surface. While other treatment options, such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion, only treat the surface layers of the skin, lasers are able to get rid of skin imperfections at their core, bringing them up to the surface and then reducing or removing them. There is little to no downtime required, and there is no need for special creams or ointments.
What types of laser peels are available?
There are numerous laser peels available at Levy Dermatology, depending on your need as well as your desired results.
The Restore Peel features a combination of different therapies, starting with a BBL™ BroadBand Light treatment, followed by a MicroLaserPeel®, followed by ProFractional™ therapy. This laser peel evens skin tone, forms the skin, removed fine lines and wrinkles, and stimulates collagen, which only continues to provide lasting results.
South Beach Peel
The South Beach Peel also begins with a BBL™ BroadBand Light treatment, but is then followed by a 20 micron microlaser peel. This portion of the therapy removes the outside layers of the epidermis, improving skin tone and giving it a beautiful glow. This also removes minor signs of sun damage with little to no downtime.
Contour + ProFractional™ Therapy
This laser peel provides smooth skin while removing fine lines and deep wrinkles. The Contour + ProFractional™ Therapy starts with a resurfacing, which stimulates collagen production in the cells, contributing to cell reproduction and skin firmness. The tiny laser only targets the treatment area, promoting the surrounding tissue to heal rapidly.
The NanoLaserPeel from Sciton uses light energy to remove the top layers of skin, activating special proteins in the body that accelerate the renewal process. This process communicates all the way down to deep layers of the skin, encouraging new cell production and providing a refreshed and glowing complexion. With no downtime requires, this laser peel offers the healing properties you want without the unnecessary side effects.
