Whether you are looking for a skin resurfacing procedure that is a bit more intense than a chemical peel, or are considering dipping into the realm of cosmetic laser treatments but want to start somewhere with fewer risks, nanolaser peels offer beautiful results in just a couple of very safe treatments, revealing skin that is smooth, youthful, and radiant.
A nanolaser peel treatment works similarly to chemical peels and deep laser resurfacing but offers an intermediate treatment that is more effective than a chemical peel but less invasive than deep laser resurfacing. This procedure is a type of skin resurfacing treatment that is effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and dull, aging skin. It functions by causing the top layers of the skin to peel, revealing underneath new skin cells through the application of gentle light energy. The new layer of skin speeds up the body’s natural skin renewal process by activating specific proteins that cause the deeper layers of the skin to restore the layers of skin, resulting in the surface and deeper layers of skin being smoother, tighter, and younger in appearance.
Nanolaser peel treatments will typically involve a series of 2 to 4 treatments that are spaced around 6 to 8 weeks apart to allow the collagen production to be entirely stimulated before starting the process over again with the next session in order to achieve the final desired results. The 6-week minimum between nanolaser peels is one of the shortest amounts of time that is allowed between laser-peel treatments due to this treatment being much less invasive and harmful to the surface of the skin. Once the build-up treatments are complete, most patients will be able to enjoy their results for around 6 to 12 months before needing a maintenance treatment. Going through the process of a build-up phase will allow for the results to last so long before maintenance treatments are needed to sustain the results. To further prolong the beautiful results provided by the nanolaser peel treatment, it is recommended that patients implement a good quality skincare routine into their daily lives, as well as ensure that their skin is sufficiently protected from sun damage whenever possible.
Since the nanolaser peel treatment uses energy to cause the skin to peel, the skin needs time to heal properly, so your treatment provider will ensure that you have all the required after-care instructions and recommendations to allow for your skin to heal properly. The surface of the skin will likely be fully healed within several days, but the skin must be properly protected from direct sunlight for at least three months as the skin will still be fairly sensitive in that time. Your skin will likely feel a bit hot causing mild discomfort, but this is normal and you will be provided with instructions on how to relieve that discomfort safely. Additionally, the skin will appear fairly red and swollen, but the swelling will be a very short-term side effect, and the redness can take up to 5 days to fade entirely. Your skin will continue to produce more collagen for 2 to 3 months, so it is important to take proper care of the skin, particularly throughout this timeline, to support the treatment to provide beautiful results.
Nanolaser peel treatments are a very safe option for those who wish to reduce the appearance of their fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, uneven skin tone, and uneven texture. These treatments are minimally invasive, making them safe for treatment on most parts of the body but are typically performed on the chest, neck, and face. In the past, patients with darker skin tones have been warned against using laser-based treatments due to them being pigment targeting, risking discoloration of the skin surrounding the treated area. However, the nanolaser peel does not use pigment targeting techniques, so it is perfectly safe for patients of all skin tones and skin types.
