If you want to refine the texture of your skin, improving fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots and sun damage, pore size, less than smooth texture and superficial scars, a laser microlaserpeel offers a wonderful option with minimal discomfort and downtime compared to deeper procedures. If more dramatic results are desired, deeper laser resurfacing can go further in improving years of sun damage, acne scars, wrinkles and laxity.

Sciton erbium microlaserpeels allow Dr. Gelber to very precisely remove layers of dead or damaged skin cells, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion and encouraging new, healthier cell turnover. Microdermabrasion and light chemical peels remove only the very most superficial layers of skin, and don't heat the lower layers of the skin, a process that stimulates new collagen production. Lasers do this, and can be customized to remove anywhere from 4 - 1500 microns of tissue, customizing depth of treatment from that which gives a gentle glow with almost no downtime to full field resurfacing treatments for deeper concerns.

Most microlaserpeel treatments only require 1-4 days of recovery time, making this a wonderful treatment option over a long weekend. Deeper resurfacing takes longer recovery times, but offers the opportunity to effect much greater change in a single session.

Microlaserpeels work beautifully when combined with other laser modalities to specifically address your needs. One of our most popular combination treatments uses BBL/IPL to treat age spots, broken capillaries and other pigment irregularities with a light microlaserpeel to leave a smoother, glowing surface.

Because microlaserpeels can be so customized, they are also a great option for areas other than the face, including the neck, chest,  hands or any other body area. Depending on the depth of treatment and skin goals, improvement will be seen in a single treatment, but optimal results from lighter treatments are often best obtained by a series of sessions.
