Wrinkle Reduction – Erbium:YAG Laser Peels

See wrinkle reduction results from your first treatment! The MicroLaser Peel is a revolutionary rapid-recovery procedure that reduces wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and acne scars, all without the pain associated with Fraxel or Thermage.

We will customize this laser peel to meet your specific needs. The MicroLaser Peel is a breakthrough Erbium:YAG Laser Peel treatment that removes the outermost layers of skin while restoring strength to the underlying dermis. Recovery takes approximately two to four days.

ActiveFX, and DeepFX Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

Fractional CO2 Lasers take resurfacing to a deeper, even more effective level. While the recovery from deeper laser skin resurfacing can take 7-10 days, the improvement in wrinkles can be very dramatic.

Lumenis Ultrapulse CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

Lumenis Ultrapulse CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing is the gold standard, and most effective, form of wrinkle reduction. Recovery averages 10 days. This type of resurfacing is commonly performed together with facelifting.

Before Wrinkle Reduction Treatment

Several weeks before your treatment, you may be asked to begin skincare designed to build your skin’s tolerance to laser treatment and minimize the risk of side effects. You may also need to discontinue certain medications temporarily.

Procedure and recovery

On the day of your treatment, our experienced providers will apply a topical numbing solution to the treatment area and thoroughly cleanse the skin. Numbing injections or oral sedatives may also be utilized depending on the type of treatment being performed. Next, they will slowly move the laser across the target area until the entire area has received treatment. Lastly, they will apply a healing ointment to the treated skin, and you will recover at home.

During your recovery, your skin will be red, and sloughing will occur. Healing requires 3-10 days depending on the depth of treatment. Even after healing is complete, the new skin is sensitive to chemical irritants and sun. It is essential to protect your new skin from sensitizing products, and protect it from the sun. You will be given detailed aftercare instructions specific to your peel.

Wrinkle Reduction Results

Your results from wrinkle reduction can last years with proper care. The best way to maintain your results is with a healthy lifestyle and proper skincare.

Which Wrinkle Reduction is right for me?

If you have concerns related to aging, sun damage, skin texture, or acne (and related scarring), CO2 Laser Peel skin resurfacing offers a fast and effective solution.

When performed by an experienced specialist, CO2 Laser Peel treatment is a safe treatment option for lighter skin tones (Fitzpatrick I, II, and occasionally III). Based on the severity of your concerns, our providers can help you determine the best treatment for your skin.

While all of the CO2 Laser Peels at Avani Derm Spa by Nayak Plastic Surgery can produce significant improvements in the condition and appearance of treated skin, we can help you identify the treatment depth that will offer you the best results. The MicroLaser Peel may best suit patients looking to improve concerns on the skin’s surface, such as dullness, active acne, dark spots, and mild to moderate signs of aging. Deeper penetrating peels are ideal for patients showing more advanced signs of aging, such as coarse wrinkles.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the risks and side effects of Wrinkle Reduction?

While CO2 Laser Peels are non-invasive, there is a risk of side effects. The most common side effects associated with CO2 Laser Peels are prolonged redness, hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, bumps, rash, scars, or infection. You can minimize your risk of side effects by undergoing treatment by an experienced professional and following detailed instructions for your treatment preparation and recovery.

Is Wrinkle Reduction painful?

Wrinkle reduction is not painful. The use of a topical numbing cream, plus numbing injections or sedatives as appropriate, makes treatment very tolerable for most patients, and discomfort during recovery is also minimal.
