What is a NanoLaser Peel?
NanoLaser is a gentler ablative laser treatment which removes only the topmost layer of the skin, offering luminous and youthful looking skin with reduced downtime. It is frequently referred to as a “weekend peel” option thanks to the fast results that the treatment offers. The Nano Laser Peel offers an advancement to typical facial peels. This laser treatment gives precise control for uniform ablation that cannot be matched with typical chemical peels and microdermabrasion. You will achieve dramatic improvement in skin smoothness and skin reﬂection with minimal downtime.
Who is a Good Candidate for a NanoLaser Peel?
Most patients who have common skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, rough texture, dullness, scarring, hyperpigmentation, or sun damage are good candidates for the NanoLaser peel. It is a good option for patients who have tried other anti-aging procedures like Botox injections and are looking to enhance their results and achieve a youthful glow. During a consultation in our Med Spa, your aesthetician will evaluate your skin type, skin tone, and concerns to determine whether the NanoLaser Peel is your best option. There are other ablative treatment options that your aesthetician may recommend, such as a chemical peel, that you may be better suited to. However, the NanoLaser Peel is typically a more effective option while still avoiding harsh treatments that require extended downtime.
The NanoLaser Peel Procedure
Before your NanoLaser Peel begins, your aesthetician will thoroughly cleanse your skin and offer you protective eyewear. They will then direct the laser to the treatment area using the NanoLaser Peel handpiece. Through treatment, a computer-guided scanner will direct the laser throughout the treatment area for more precise targeting of your unwanted texture or pigmentation and reduced damage to healthy cells. On average, this treatment takes about 5-10 minutes to complete. Most patients are comfortable throughout the treatment without requiring any anesthetic. Deeper settings may require some numbing cream or another type of local anesthetic to keep you comfortable through the procedure. Your aesthetician will explain what you can expect depending on the settings used to complete your NanoLaser Peel procedure.
Recovery and Results After NanoLaser Peel
A short recovery period is one of the primary benefits of the NanoLaser Peel. You will notice a “frosty” appearance immediately after the treatment due to the dehydrated skin cells, which will then begin to peel away. Peeling generally lasts just 2-3 days after treatment. Some mild redness or swelling are also normal. During this time, you will likely also feel some sensitivity in the treated area similar to a sunburn. Be sure to avoid sun exposure as much as possible. These side effects should last no longer than 2-3 days, after which you will notice healthy, luminous, and youthful skin.
