What micron range is considered a medium to deep profractional laser treatment?

Doctor Answers 1

Depends on the area of skin treated

Will depend on individual factors, as a guide 100 microns is the thickness of epidermis. Hence medium to deep can be 100- 600 plus microns, depending on the area (eyelids have the thinnest skin, nose thickest on the face). Most experts go by tissue reaction but do record the microns for legal reasons. See a Specialist if you are thinking about full resurfacing - Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
