Microlaserpeel (MLP)

microlaserpeelStay young starting young!

A minimal downtime, light resurfacing treatment limited to the epidermis that evens out skin tone, texture & color, restoring a healthy-looking youthful glow to the skin.

At our clinic we believe that starting young with simple procedures and a good skin care regimen will keep you looking your best.

The Microlaserpeel is the best way to start! This treatment resurfaces gently the skin, giving the patient a beautiful glow. It addresses very fine lines, crepiness, and unwanted pigmentation. It is a nice way to speed up your skin turnover.

We recommend doing this treatment twice a year usually fall and spring.
The treatment can be done at various depths.
The usual recovery time is 2-5 days. This involves a little bit of redness similar to a sunburn and slight peeling that will leave you with nice fresh skin underneath. . Redness will begin to fade by the third day, and can easily be covered by makeup on the fourth day.
This is the famous “weekend peel” that has now replaced some of the chemical peels.

How is the treatment done?
