The Venus™ Laser Peel is the latest advance for the treatment of aging and sun damaged skin! The Laser Peel refreshes sun damaged skin by reducing age spots, fine wrinkles and minimizing the appearance of some superficial scars.
Being a true “lunchtime” procedure, with almost no recovery time, the treatment can be done most any time during your normal day. What mild redness there might be can easily be covered with make-up soon after treatment.
In only a few days, you may start to see improvement in pigment and skin texture. Other improvements might be subtler, with real improvement being apparent one to three months following a course of treatments. One of the most common patient comments is they feel that they look more rested.
Laser skin resurfacing removes the outer layer of skin through the use of an Erbium YAG Laser. The laser energy is absorbed by water and because the skin contains 70% water, the laser beam actually vaporizes the top layer of skin or the epidermis, removing skin inconsitencies, such as discoloration, shallow lines and scarring. When new epidermis regenerates, the effect is a smoother and tighter surface.
Whereas facials and microdermabrasion work on the superficial layers of the skin, laser target deeper layers. Unlike chemical peels where it is all or nothing in one treatment plan, The Venus Laser Peel is a multiple step process that is both gradual and less invasive than older methods of exfoliation. Depending on the skin conditiona, most clients require 4-6 treatments, each spaced one month apart. Each procedure lasts approximately 30 minutes.
When repeated once a month over a three to five-month period, clients will notice at least a 50% improvement in the elasticity, fullness, texture, color and appearance of their skin. Common treatment conditions include:
