NanoLaser Peel

NanoLaserPeel from Sciton has the precision to work at just the right depth, creating beautifully smooth, luminous skin and leave your skin feeling smoother and younger-looking.

Indications and Treatment:

  • Texture
  • Mild wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Sun Damage
  • Keratosis
  • Dull skin

Post Care:

  • Redness normally persists for 24 hours – 5 days depending upon the depth of the peel.
  • Swelling is typically a short-term response. Use of a cold compress or ice packs will help to relieve the swelling. To avoid further swelling, you may choose to sleep in an upright position the first night after the treatment.
  • If an antiviral was prescribed for you, continue to take as directed.
  • Post treatment discomfort may be relieved by oral pain relievers; i.e. Extra Strength Tylenol.
  • A cold compress or an ice pack can be used to provide comfort if the treated area is especially warm. This is typically only needed within the first 12 hours after the treatment.
  • Cleanse the skin two times a day with plain, lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser; (i.e. Cetaphil) beginning the morning after the treatment. Use your hands to gently apply the cleanser and water and finish by patting dry with a soft cloth. Be careful not to rub the treated area.
  • After cleansing your face, reapply the occlusive barrier, (i.e. Aquaphor) taking care to cover all treated areas. The occlusive barrier is needed to provide a protective barrier that will hold moisture into the skin and provide protection to the skin from pollutants in the air as the skin heals. As a rule of thumb, the occlusive barrier is needed 1 day per 10 microns of skin treated or once skin has re-epithelized. For example: a 20 micron MLP = 2 days of wearing the occlusive barrier. Reapply the occlusive barrier as needed. Do not allow the treated area to dry out.
  • Peeling and flaking generally occur within 24 hours post treatment and should be allowed to come off naturally. DO NOT PICK, RUB, OR FORCE OFF ANY SKIN DURING THE HEALING PROCESS. THIS COULD RESULT IN SCARRING AND INFECTION! Gently washing the skin more frequently will help to promote the peeling process.
  • Avoid direct sunlight for up to 2 months post treatment.
  • Once skin has healed (no longer wearing the occlusive barrier) you may begin to wear makeup. If you are able to wear makeup, a sunblock should be worn on a daily basis to help prevent any hyperpigmentation issues that could be caused by direct and indirect sunlight.
  • When showering, be sure to wash your hair behind you to avoid getting shampoo directly on the treated area.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise and sweating until after skin has healed.
  • Contact office if swelling is abnormal, drainage, increased warmth of treated area, or fever of 101.5 or greater
