The Sciton® Profile Laser MicroLaserPeel™, also called the “weekend” skin peel due to its short healing process, is a partial-to-full epidermal peel that removes the outermost layers of the skin, revealing smoother, vibrant, more even-toned skin. For your comfort, the procedure is performed with a topical anesthetic.
Laser skin resurfacing, also known as a laser peel, is the removal of the top layers of the skin via focused laser light energy. Some types of lasers also penetrate into deeper layers of skin to provide additional benefits. The main goals of laser skin resurfacing are to make the skin smoother, tighter, and more even in tone, texture, and color.
Those who can benefit from a skin resurfacing procedure include patients with skin imperfections like wrinkles, loose skin, scars (including acne scars), enlarged pores, rough skin texture, or dark spots (hyperpigmentation) on the skin.

Each MicroLaserPeel treatment takes approximately 30 minutes, and healing time varies from 3 to 10 days, depending on the depth of the peel. At the completion of the healing period, results are immediate and dramatic!
