Sun, environmental hazards, and normal aging of the skin can cause it to wrinkle or look older than we’d like. That is why we at Quintessa Medical Spa offer our clients several different options to improve skin texture and appearance using laser skin therapy.
Lasers often offer better results and shorter down time, and are a superb skin resurfacing option. This therapy method is also called a “laser peel.”
WHAT IS A LASER PEEL?
Thermal energy given off causes the skin cells to regenerate and rebuild the naturally occurring collagen. Laser peels help restore skin elasticity by smoothing out the skins surface and rebuilding your skin′s support structure.
RECOVERY AND RESULTS FROM A LASER PEEL
Your healing time will vary depending on how deep the laser peel is. Your skin will feel swollen and tight immediately after the peel and you may experience a warm, tingling sensation. Depending on the depth of the peel, recovery can take from a few days up to a week. Redness can last from a few days to months, but eventually disappears. Our trained experts at Quintessa Medical Spa in Sheboygan can advise you on the best makeup techniques and products to use to cover any redness that is still present after your skin has healed.
