Why the Laser Weekend Peel is your skin’s BFF!

Why the Laser Weekend Peel is your skin’s BFF

Whatever your aesthetic skin complaint (think: wrinkles, acne scars, pigmented lesions, lax skin, irregular texture/tone) a Laser Weekend Peel will help.

An ideal step for patients who want dramatically improved skin that cannot be offered with a simple microdermbrasion but who do not want to experience the downtime of full skin resurfacing, the efficacy of this treatment is due to the depth at which it works. Microdermabrasion only removes 10 microns of outer skin, that is; the dead skin cells called the stratum corneum, but the quick, pain-free Weekend Peel ablates more profoundly into the epidermis, vaporizing off between 20 and 50 microns of your outer skin cells! The result? Fresher, smoother skin with a healthy, radiant glow.

The Weekend peel is based on the genius erbium laser, which is absorbed by the water in the skin.  The laser treats the superficial skin by ablating, or vaporizing it, and continues deeper into the skin where it is absorbed by water.  This heats the deeper layers of skin, where the collagen and the cells that build collagen reside.  Building new collagen has benefits of thickening the skin and attracting more water into the skin, giving it a healthy look and feel.

Post-procedure, symptoms are similar to those of a sunburn, with minor skin sloughing on the second day. Redness will slowly disappear on the third day, as skin regrowth is triggered and on the fourth day the patient can easily hide it with makeup. Throughout this four-day period, frequent moisturizer application is recommended to ensure that the skin does not dry out while it is being replaced by rejuvenated skin and can be continued until the peel is completed. The guaranteed results will continue to improve for several weeks, if not months, after the treatment.

So if you want smoother, fresher, healthier skin with results lasting up to six months, then this treatment is your dream procedure!
