MicroLaser Peels Reverse the Effects of Sun Damage

If you already have sun-damaged skin from too much sun exposure this season, you may be a good candidate for a laser skin rejuvenation treatment. The Sciton laser is one of the newest laser technologies available at many premier plastic, cosmetic, and aesthetic surgery centers around the country. The laser was featured on The Doctors TV show earlier this year and is currently a popular laser used for the MicroLaser Peel offered at the Southern Surgical Arts Center in Chattanooga. The doctors at the Southern Surgical Arts Center recommend this particular laser for treating sun-damaged skin, vascular lesions, acne, and even wrinkles.

Treating Sun-Damaged Skin with the Sciton Laser

The Sciton JOULE laser is one of the latest advancements in laser skin resurfacing and is often used for combination treatments that include skin-tightening, fractional ablation, and laser ablation. If you have sun-damaged skin and want to get rid of those freckles, pigmented patches of skin, and age spots, you may be a good candidate for broadband light therapy or a MicroLaser Peel using the Sciton laser. These treatments promise very little downtime and you will see results within a few weeks.

Getting Results with a MicroLaser Peel

The Southern Surgical Arts Center offers the MicroLaser Peel treatment, a relatively gentle skin rejuvenation procedure but one that still produces significant results. This particular laser treatment can be used on the full face, neck, chest, hands, and smaller areas of the body without the risk of hyperpigmentation or severe changing of the color of the skin.

A single MicroLaser Peel is the equivalent of four to six microdermabrasion treatments and you will see a noticeable difference in your skin within the first week. Most people experience some redness and peeling of the skin two to six days after the treatment. Your skin takes about 21 days to go through its natural renewal process or healing cycle, and you can undergo another MicroLaser Peel at that time if you need it.

MicroLaser Peels performed with the Sciton laser are especially effective for treating:

  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven skin tone

Each treatment starts as low as $100 at the Southern Surgical Arts Center so it can be a very affordable and more effective alternative to facial treatments at the spa or even traditional microdermabrasion treatments. You may decide to get a series of peels for better results, or get a peel once every season to maintain your results.
