Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry Perkins has added an Erbium YAG Laser Peel to his minimally-invasive cosmetic services. What makes this laser service unique is that it is similar to a chemical peel but with little to no downtime!
At Cosmetic Surgery Center we like to refer to it as the “Lunchtime Laser Peel” because you can have it done on your lunch hour and return to work without your colleagues knowing any better.
Who Can Benefit from a Lunchtime Laser Peel?
The treatment removes the top layers of the epidermis which improves surface imperfections. If you have superficial pigmentation, light acne scarring, and/or fine wrinkles then this Laser Peel may be a good choice for you.
What Do I Need to Know About the Laser Peel Procedure?
The procedure takes about 20 minutes for the face. It can usually be done with no topical or abbreviated numbing. The Laser Peel vaporizes the top layers of skin cells without transferring heat to the deeper tissue so little to no redness results. The face is a popular area of treatment for the Laser Peel as well as the décolletage and hands.
What Results Will I See from the Laser Peel?
The Erbium YAG Laser efficiently “freshens up” skin by “polishing” the skin’s surface. Most people find that their skin is smoother and more even-toned with a nice glow after treatment. A series of treatments is usually recommended for optimum results.
