MicroLaserPeel in Rochester Treatment Process


The treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed and sanitized and your eyes will be protected with safety shields.



Laser Application

The physician will position the laser hand piece above the skin and will hold it in place as the computer-guided scanner moves the laser beam around the treatment area, ensuring an even treatment.

Treat Surface Skin

The damaged skin cells are instantly vaporized, trigging your body’s natural healing response and collagen production, smoothing and tightening skin.

Healthier Looking Skin

Immediately after treatment, the skin will appear “frosty.” This will diminish as the dehydrated skin flakes and peels away over the next 2-3 days. After this process, skin will appear dramatically more even in tone and texture.


How collagen affects aging skin

Many of our clients come in wondering exactly how collagen helps the skin. Some try products such as lotions and creams that have collagen infused in them. Unfortunately, these molecules in those products are too big to penetrate the skin.

Collagen makes up the structure of the skin. Simply speaking, it’s the framework that keeps everything together, and it is in charge of giving the skin firmness.

Collagen fibers are plentiful when you’re younger, but as you start to age, sun damage and other factors break down those fibers. In addition, long-term sun exposure degrades the integrity of our skin.

That’s what makes a microlaser peel in Rochester so successful. By penetrating the damaged layer of skin, the treatment can promote collagen growth to rebuild structure and leave you glowing.

The natural skin healing process

The best part of a microlaser peel in Rochester is that it boosts the skin’s natural healing process. It is designed to remove the superficial layers of skin to eliminate conditions such as:

-Fine lines
-Sun damage
-Pigment irregularities

By removing the top layer of skin, the laser energy removes damaged and dull tissue. As your skin begins to heal, chemical signals trigger collagen production. Collagen is the framework for our skin and keeps us looking young and fresh!

When your skin is forced to heal itself, collagen production goes into overdrive, giving you your face a smoother and tighter look. The skin-healing process works in four phases:

Phase 1: Hemostasis Phase
Hemostasis is the first phase that begins right when an injury occurs. The whole purpose is to quickly stop any bleeding from the wound. During this phase, blood cells clump together and clot to stop any further bleeding.

Phase 2: Defensive/Inflammatory Phase
The defensive/inflammatory phase is all about protecting your body from bacteria and debris that could infiltrate the wound. White blood cells becomes the protector and oversees the repair process. They also produce growth factors to aid with the wound repair.

Phase 3: Proliferative Phase
Once the wound is cleaned, the proliferative phase begins. Blood cells arrive to build fresh, new tissue that lacks any of the damage your skin once had. Chemical signals trigger cells to produce collagen, which acts as a framework for the new skin. Depending on the size of the wound, this phase can last anywhere between four and 24 days.

Phase 4: Maturation Phase
During the maturation phase, collagen fibers reorganize as the tissue matures and strengthens. The skin becomes smoother and healthier than it was before the trauma. After getting one our microlaser peels in Rochester, you’ll start noticing smoother, more even skin only a few days after the treatment. You’ll continue to reap amazing benefits as the skin passes through the maturation phase.


Light versus your Skin

There is a wide spectrum of light wavelengths – some of which are extremely beneficial, and others which can be harmful to skin.

Light energy with a shorter wavelength, like X-rays and UV rays, penetrate the skin with ionizing radiation, altering your DNA and causing serious damage.

The sun emits these rays, including UVA and UVB; they are to blame for premature aging, wrinkles, sagging, brown spots, and even skin cancer.

Other wavelengths, on the other hand, like infrared light or LED light, have therapeutic effects on the skin, selectively targeting and removing impurities when focused on a particular area. This light energy can even reverse some of the visible damage done to the skin by UV rays!


Benefits of a MicroLaserPeel in Rochester

Quick & Easy Procedure

Microlaser peels are completed in 30 minutes on average. You will want to take the next few days off work and social activities, however, as the dead and damaged skin peels and flakes away. Healing takes place in 4 days with MicroLaserPeel, rather than up to 2 weeks with other laser resurfacing treatments.

Safe & Non-Invasive

Microlaser peels are a safe way to obtain beautiful, vibrant skin without the down time of other laser procedures. This treatment is performed by our expert medical staff. We pride ourselves on performing safe procedures that will allow you to feel like your best self.

Require Less Downtime? Have a Weekend Peel!

We can customize your treatment based on how much downtime you have. If you don’t quite have the healing time for a traditional MicroLaserPeel, we can adjust the treatment depth to give you a Weekend Peel in Rochester, so you can go back to the office Monday looking refreshed and perfected.

Before the procedure

Before the procedure you’ll meet with one of our trained specialists for a free one-hour consultation. We’ll talk to you about your specific skin goals and evaluate your skin. That way we’ll be able to customize your microlaser peel treatment and build a plan outlining how many sessions you will need for optimal results.

We also recommend that all of our clients:

-Avoid sun exposure and sun tanning four weeks before the procedure
-Don’t use sun tanning lotion a month before the procedure
-Stop taking tretinoin prescriptions such as Renova or Retin-A one week before the procedure

If you have questions about if a microlaser peel is best for you, one of our specialists will be happy to help! Envision Aesthetics prides ourselves on having the best service, and we always put the needs of our clients first.

We take time to meet one-on-one with all of our clients to understand their specific skin rejuvenating goals. That’s why our procedures leave people feeling younger, fresher, and more confident than ever!

During the procedure

Before the procedure begins your specialist will clean the treated areas and place a protective shield over your eyes. We will then position the laser above the skin and hold it steady as the laser beam moves around the designated areas.

Layer by layer, the laser will literally evaporate unwanted skin due to the high water content in the epidermis. The skin will be rejuvenated as the damaged top layer is destroyed.

For a shallow treatment, you probably won’t need a topical anesthetic, but for deeper layers our specialist may apply an aesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. Depending on how large the treated area is, your microlaser peel in Rochester could take 20 to 30 minutes.

After the procedure

Immediately after your microlaser peel in Rochester, your skin will have a frosty appearance. This is the dehydrated skin that will peel away over the course of the next few days. Your specialist will give you detailed post-procedure instructions to guide you through the healing process.

Unlike chemical peels, a microlaser peel is perfect for a weekend-long skin rejuvenation, so you won’t have to worry about taking off too much time from work. Healing only takes about 3 to 4 days. During that time, you’ll want to apply Vaseline or Aquaphor to the treated area to keep it moisturized and avoid direct sunlight.

Once the skin heals, you’ll have noticeable improvement in the tone, texture, and overall appearance of your skin. In just a few days, you’ll have the glowing, healthy skin you’ve always wanted!
