Does your skin have an aged, dull appearance? A weekend laser peel is the ideal way to take years off your face, and restore its vibrancy. The peel is a transformative treatment that can treat the signs of age, and improve the tone and texture of the skin. But what exactly is a weekend laser peel?
What is a weekend laser peel?
The weekend laser peel refers to a Micro Laser peel that can improve the texture of your skin, and brighten the complexion. It is called the ‘weekend’ peel, because the average downtime is 3-4 days.
The Micro Laser peel is commonly used to address skin concerns on the face and neck, as well as the chest. Treatment can be customized based on your skin condition and skin type. The peel is typically used to treat skin irregularities such as wrinkles, sunspots, acne scars, and sun damage. Treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes, but this varies based on the area being treated.
Most patients require a series of treatments to achieve optimal results with the weekend laser peel, but dramatic results can be gained after just one treatment. The skin will look sunburnt and scaly after treatment, and while the old skin peels away, patients are advised to avoid direct sunlight, as the skin is very sensitive during this period.
How does it work?
The Micro Laser delivers laser energy that eliminates old, damaged skin tissue on the top layer of the skin. Fresh skin cells then emerge where the skin was treated, and this gives the skin a healthy glow and even skin tone.
