Micropeels in Baltimore, MD
What is a Micropeel?
A micropeel is a controlled exfoliation treatment that uses laser energy to precisely remove the outermostlayers of the skin. With modern laser technology, we are able to fully customize the depth and strength of the treatment according to the needs of the patient. This gives us great versatility in addressing the skincare needs of the patient while also accommodating for factors such as skin sensitivity and desired downtime.
The benefits of the micropeel treatment are two-fold: first, it allows us to remove damaged or aged skin from the surface, encouraging the body to produce healthier, radiant skin in its place. This makes it an effective solution for treating signs of aging, skin damage, acne scars and more. Second, the laser energy is absorbed by the body, stimulating the natural production of collagen. After treatment concludes, the body will use this new collagen to continue strengthening the skin in the months to come. Additional benefits of this treatment include:
●Improved skin tone and texture
●Decreased pore size
●Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
●Minimal recovery time
●Removal of unwanted moles and skin tags
How Much Does the Micropeel Treatment Cost?
The cost of micropeel treatments will vary as we determine the best approach to your treatment, including treatment strength and the number of treatment sessions. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals so we can determine these variables and identify the best treatment plan. At this time, we will be able to inform you of the cost of treatment. If you have any concerns regarding the cost of your treatment, you may want to consider one of our financing options.
What is the Micropeel Treatment Like?
The micropeel treatment begins with the application of a topical numbing cream, which helps to eliminate any discomfort that might otherwise occur during the laser process. Once the skin is prepared, the handheld laser device will be maneuvered to address the desired treatment areas. This process typically takes about 30 minutes, but can vary depending on the size of the treatment area.
Is There Any Downtime After a Micropeel?
Since the laser micropeel is a customizable treatment, the downtime required can vary in relation to the intensity of treatment. For most patients, there is no substantial downtime required, but you can expect a brief healing process that lasts a few days. Immediately following your treatment, the skin will be red and sensitive, much like the symptoms of a sunburn. Over the next few days, the redness will fade and the skin may flake off. Within one week, these symptoms should resolve and you should be able to resume your usual skincare routines and habits.
What Can I Expect After the Micropeel Treatment?
After the short healing process, you will notice smoother and healthier-looking skin immediately. These results may continue to improve as the body implements new collagen into the skin and additional treatments are received. We often recommend a series of laser micro peel treatments for optimal results, which can then be maintained with routine follow-ups at more convenient intervals.
