What conditions can be treated with MicroLaserPeel?*
What is MicroLaserPeel?
A MicroLaserPeel removes a thin layer of damaged skin to improve texture and provide a more youthful appearance. It provides superior results because it can be administered with great precision of depth. The procedure is performed in Dr. Yagudin’s office and can be custom tailored to your specific skin conditions and desired outcome. *
How does MicroLaserPeel works?
The MicroLaserPeel beam is scanned over a treatment area to remove a very thin layer of the skin. Removing the top layer eliminates some of the damaged cells that can give skin a tired, aged look. As the skin heals, fresh cells grow and resurface the treated area. The results are healthier-looking skin, often with reduced wrinkles and improved color evenness. Patients often say that it looks like their skin went from looking tired to vibrant.*
What areas of the body can be treated?
Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, though some people also treat the chest and hands. You should discuss your needs with Dr. Yagudin.*
How many treatments will I need?
Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment however the number of treatments needed many vary from patient to patient. Dr. Yagudin can personalize a plan based on your specific needs and may chose to combine MicroLaserPeel with other aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.*
What will happen during the procedure?
Your skin will be cleaned in the treatment area and your eyes will be protected with safe shields. Dr. Yagudin will position the laser handpiece above the skin and will hold it in place as the computer-guided scanner moves the laser beam around the treatment area. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure usually lasts 15 to 30 minutes.*
Will it be uncomfortable?
One of the primary advantages of MicroLaserPeel is that it causes little pain because it does not penetrate very deep into the skin. At its most shallow settings, most people can tolerate treatment with no anesthetic at all. At deeper settings, a topical numbing cream is typically used.*
What should I expect immediately after the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice that the skin has a “frosty” appearance. This is the dehydrated skin that will peel away within next few days following the treatment. You may experience some skin redness and a sensation resembling sunburn, as well as mild swelling.*
How long will it take to recover?
Depending on the depth of the treatment, most patients feel comfortable enough to return to work within 3 to 4 days- an attribute that given rise to the nickname “the weekend peel.”
What aftercare do I need?
You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. It is recommended that you always use some level of solar protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.*
When should I expect results?
Because only the outer layer of the skin is treated, most patients notice an obvious improvement in tone, texture and color evenness once the skin heals in approximately 3-4 days.*
PREOPERATIVE INSTRUCTIONS AND PRECAUTIONS FOR MICROLASER PEEL*
1. Report to my office if you should develop a cold, fever, or develop open sores or blisters prior to the appointment.
2. Use no products containing aspirin for ten days prior to appointment and two weeks after. Tylenol or Ibuprofen (Advil, Nuprin, or Motrin) is OK. You must inform us about medications you are taking before starting, and at each subsequent laser treatment. Some medications are contraindicated, and must be discontinued before treatment.
3. Discontinue the use of Retin-A, Glycolic, or Alpha Hydroxy Acid skin care products 24 hours prior to your scheduled facial laser treatment.
4. Take Vitamin C (500 mg): One tablet in the a.m. and one tablet in the p.m. for five days prior to surgery and for 10 days after. This helps to control bruising and promote healing.

7.

Prior to the topical anesthetic application: clean the area – no make-up, lotion, etc. to the area to be treated.
8. No smoking of nicotine products a minimum of 2 weeks before the treatment. If you do smoke, please be aware that smoking increases the risk for poor wound healing and may delay your healing process.
9. Please remove your contact lenses the day of the treatment.
10. If you will be taking pain medication and a relaxant prior to the procedure, please make arrangements for someone to drive you to the office and take you home. You may not drive yourself home.
