NanoLaser Peel (Weekend Peel)
A perfect introduction to laser treatments for any patient interested in the newest an easy, precise way to get smoother, brighter skin.
A NanoLaser Peel is an extremely superficial laser treatment which removes a very thin layer of skin, such as a chemical peel or microdermabrasion. The NanoLaser peel promotes new skin to grow from underneath without using chemicals or abrasive materials. It uses light energy to instantly remove the top dull layer of skin to accelerate the skin’s own renewal process, creating beautifully smooth, luminous skin. Removing the top layer of skin eliminates some of the damaged cells that can give skin a tired, aged look.
Is a NanoLaser Peel Right for Me?
This treatment is extremely comfortable and requires no anesthetic. This treatment can be performed as a single treatment or as a series of treatments for improved results. You can treat the face, neck, chest and hands. The NanoLaser Peel is a perfect introduction to laser treatments for any patient interested in the newest an easy, precise way to get smoother, brighter skin.
A NanoLaserPeel requires only topical anesthetic and has very short down time with most patients returning to work on Monday with refreshed, luminous skin. You can expect minimal downtime with slight redness for just 1-2 days. Most patients notice improvement in tone, texture and colour evenness once the skin heals in approximately 2-3 days.
This depends on your lifestyle. If you can avoid prolonged sun exposure then yes, you can get laser treatments in the summer. If you plan on being outside in the sun without protection (SPF & a hat) then we would recommend that you postpone your treatments until the fall or winter.
Typically no. Our registered nurse/laser technician can assess you to determine whether you are a candidate for laser. Depending on the treatment and the area being treated there are different recommendations but in general, the skin must not be tanned in order to have a laser treatment.
This depends on what type of treatment you are undergoing. BBL treatments are not painful. The halo laser will feel hot and you will experience some pain for about 45-60 minutes after the treatment but then it completely goes away and is quite tolerable. Deep resurfacing laser treatments are painful but our office provides many forms of pain relief including oral, topical and local anesthetic.
This depends on what type of laser treatment you are having. There is no downtime associated with BBL. Halo has 5-7 days downtime. Deep resurfacing has a 2 week downtime and then prolonged redness (few months) which can be covered with makeup.
Our laser is a state of the art medical grade laser called the Sciton Joule. This platform has many different lasers built into it. We have a Broad Band Light (BBL) system which is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device on the market. We also have a 1064nm Nd:YAG laser; the Halo laser which is a hybrid of two laser wavelengths (1470nm and 2940nm); a full resurfacing Erbium YAG laser (2940nm) and a Profractional ablative laser, which is also the 2940nm wavelength but instead of treating the entire surface of the skin it just treats a fraction of the skin – creating channels in the surface.
Many including: unwanted hair growth, spider veins and small facial vessels, rosacea, acne, pigment and wrinkles.
