What is a Micro Laser Peel?
A micro laser peel, also known as a mini resurfacing, is a skin care treatment that rejuvenates facial skin leaving patients with smoother, healthier skin. This procedure is designed to reduce deep acne scarring, smooth rough skin, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The micro laser peel accomplishes this by removing the damaged top layers of the skin and stimulates collagen growth to help tighten and firm the underlying dermis.
In just a few days, noticeable improvements will be seen and patients will experience more vibrant skin that is smoother to the touch. This skincare treatment is suitable for both men and women of all ages and Dr. Jacono will tailor to each patient’s individual needs.
How does a Micro Laser Peel Work?
The micro laser peel treatments are done in a comfortable and personalized environment at J Spa Medical Spa. During the procedure, the top layer of skin that is sun-damaged, as well as, damaged due to aging, will be removed so healthy new skin cells can form. This process allows for the laser peel to treat conditions such as acne scars, complexion, wrinkles, fine lines, skin laxity, pigmentary issues, and keratosis with very minimal downtime.
