What is the Laser Peeling?
It is a controlled removal (ablation) of some superficial layer of the epidermis with building of a new flawless tegument.

What complaints can be treated?
The procedure addresses mainly the correction of fine wrinkles, post-acne scars, post-burn scars, dilated pores and brown spots.

How does the treatment work?
The wavelength is of 2790 nm and is selectively absorbed in the intracellular water, determining the vaporization of some superficial cell layers. Concomitantly, in the deeper layers the heat is accumulated, leading to the stimulation of the collagen synthesis.

What skin imperfections can be treated?
The treatment deals with the brown spots, post-acne scars, dilated pores and fine wrinkles, as well as with other imperfections of the skin texture.

Recovery period?
Immediately after the treatment, the area is reddened, the next day it turns brownish. That brown crust is eliminated in the next days, within a period of 4 to 6 days. The newly-formed skin is smoother and nearer to flawless.

Is there any pain involved?
The procedure is painful. In order to avoid feeling pain, an anesthetic cream is applied on the treated area 30 minutes before, or a light intravenous anesthesia is performed, the patient is asleep and does not feel anything.

Post-treatment care?
An ointment recommended by the physician is applied on the treated area 4-5 times a day.
