If you need a quick pick-me-up for your skin but don’t want to have to deal with the downtime of more intensive treatment, the NanoLaserPeel™ may be just what you need. The NanoLaserPeel™ is a short-downtime laser resurfacing procedure that can get your skin looking smoother and youthful after just one treatment.
At West Michigan Plastic Surgery, Kalamazoo we offer NanoLaserPeel™ to patients interested in smoothing wrinkles and improving the overall quality of their skin. We customize NanoLaserPeel™ treatments to the specific skin conditions and aesthetic goals of our patients, and they love the amazing results.
NanoLaserPeel™ is sometimes called the ‘weekend peel’ because you can get the procedure done on a Friday, recover over the weekend, and return to work on Monday with healthier, younger skin. The procedure can be used to treat mild wrinkles, pigment irregularities, keratosis, scars, and sun damage.
The laser beam is moved over the treatment area using the computer-guided scanner. The light energy from the erbium laser precisely ablates the outermost layer of old, damaged skin. These are the cells that are responsible for wrinkles and other skin irregularities that give the face a tired, aged look. New skin cells grow as the skin heals, resulting in smoother, brighter, more youthful skin.
While other procedures such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion also remove the top layer of skin and trigger new cell growth, the NanoLaserPeel™does more. It gets deep enough into the stratum corneum (outermost layer of the skin) and activates the skin’s natural renewal process. That’s why the NanoLaserPeelTM treatment produces such smooth, glowing skin.
If you have mild signs of aging and would like to improve the appearance of your skin, you may be a good candidate for NanoLaserPeel™. During your consultation, Dr. Holley or an aesthetician will review your medical history and general health to determine if this is the right treatment for you.
A typical NanoLaserPeel™ treatment takes about 20 minutes.
You will notice an improvement in the tone and texture of the skin within 2-3 days of treatment.
After treatment, there may be mild swelling and redness, as well as the sensation of sunburn. Peeling and flaking start 1-2 days after treatment and the dry tissue will give way to fresher, healthier skin.
NanoLaserPeel™ is a gentle procedure that makes it a great introduction to laser resurfacing for patients that have never done treatment before. The procedure appeals to many patients because it’s quick, convenient, and requires very little downtime.
NanoLaserPeel™ can be used in combination with other cosmetic procedures to enhance skin rejuvenation results.
The depth of the NanoLaserPeel™ laser resurfacing treatment is customizable. It’s, therefore, possible to choose how gentle or aggressive the peel will be. As a result, the treatment can be set at just the right depth to fit the lifestyle and aesthetic goals of each patient.
