The first of many treatments with laser that are available is the microlaser peel. This is perfect for people who are too busy for any significant “downtime”. This is an intra-epidermal laser peel or as I rather like to call it: “resurfacing”. The laser precisely ablates (removes) a portion of the epidermal skin (outer layer) to smooth out the surface. It is performed with just a topical anesthetic and requires only a normal office visit. The downtime can be predicted by the depth of the peel. Redness lasts usually only 1-2 days. Repeat treatments help deepen the resurfacing process for a smoother, healthier and youthful skin. This treatment is available in the Madison,CT and Providence,RI offices.
