Micro Laser Peel

The Micro Laser Peel is an intensive treatment using a laser beam to deeply exfoliate and stimulate the creation of collagen. A beam of laser is directed onto the surface of the skin where it scrapes dry, dead or redundant cell tissue with little trauma, but with high precision, which is unattainable with other techniques. Using safe, proven technology, our Sciton Laser will turn the clock back on years of sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and acne scarring.

If you could remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells, you would see that just below the surface lies a fresher, younger-looking face. That's exactly what laser peel treatments can do for you. By gently, precisely ablating the surface of your skin, laser peel treatments whisk away years of dull build-up, revealing a more beautiful you.

Vertical wrinkles and crevices between the nose and chin can be very annoying. They often cause lipstick to creep upwards. Crow's feet and other fine wrinkling around the eyes also respond very well to dermabrasion. By regenerating new collagen the skin restores its youthful complexion. Laser peel is the most effective way of dealing with these. Highly trained, experienced nurses will ensure the success of this procedure. The skin will be red after the treatment. New smooth and younger appearing skin appears progressively over the next two weeks.

Micro Laser Peels with the Sciton laser precisely removes the outermost layer of the skin. We customize each treatment based on your skin condition. Skin conditions such as wrinkles, injury scars, acne scars, skin laxicity, keratosis, and pigment problems have been successfully treated with Sciton Micro Laser Peels. We produce dramatic results for men and women alike.

Prior to the Micro Laser Peel a topical anesthetic is applied for 30 minutes to numb the skin. Then we will perform the treatment, which will take about 15 minutes. We will instruct you on post laser skin care. After 2-3 days of redness the results are impressive and continue to improve for several months. This procedure can be repeated 1-2 times a year, but just a single treatment yields substantial improvement.

  • Rejuvenate the skin
  • Reduce fine wrinkles
  • Rejuvenate sun-damaged skin on face, neck and shoulders
  • Reduce age spots on the face
  • Reduce blotchy skin coloring
  • Improve acne scars and any other superficial scars

Frequently Asked Questions about the Micro Laser Peel

What postoperative care should I use?

The top layer of your skin will re-grow and be ready for makeup in approximately one week. The most important thing is to follow your instructions. This will minimize the risk of infections and ensure the shortest healing time.

Can I go out in the sun?

Your new skin will be sensitive to the ultra-violet rays of the sun and it is recommended that you do not go out in the sun. If you have to go out in the sun, cover up, wear a hat and a good sun screen. We will tell you the best type of sunscreens to be used.

How long is the healing process?

Healing takes about four days depending on the depth of your peel. The procedure can be performed on a Thursday or Friday, so you can return to work the following Monday. Symptoms immediately following the procedure resemble sunburn, with minor sloughing on the second day. Redness will begin to fade by the third day, and be easily covered by makeup on the 4th day.

What our patients say about the Micro Laser Peel

"I was scared and apprehensive before my treatment. Marti was professional, yet empathetic, calming, and immediately put me at ease. I cannot describe how pleased I was with my result! Thank you!" —J.E. (facial micropeel patient)

"Years ago I had extensive dental surgery which left the right side of my mouth drooping slightly. I had a micro laser peel to remove the smile lines around my mouth and the crows feet around my eyes. I was AMAZED with my result! Not only do I look years younger, but it actually tightened the skin on my face and lifted the area on the side of my mouth that I had been so embarrassed of for so many years!" —M.H. (facial micropeel patient)


"I was a little young for a face lift, and basically i could not afford one. I had heard many good things about the micropeel so I decided to try it. All of my co-workers say that I look like I have been on a long vacation! Everyone says I look rested and relaxed. It eliminated many of my wrinkles, tightened the skin on my face and neck and shrunk my pores! I love my new face! I can't believe I have this much of an improvement over one weekend!" —B.T. (39 year old female facial micro peel patient)

"As a man, I wouldn't normally do something like this. But being in line for a promotion in my company, and with unwanted nudging from my wife, I relented and agreed to the facial resurfacing before my big presentation. I couldn't believe it! It really DID work! After my weekend peel I now look years younger! I was very pleased. (And my wife was pleased that she was right!)" —M.C. (46 y/o male micro peel patient)

"After a bad result from a chemical peel that I had 10 years ago, I was left with white areas around my mouth and eyes.  I have always had to cover it up with makeup.  After having the weekend peel, my skin is tighter, my pores are smaller and the previous lightened areas do not appear as noticeable. I wish I had known about this years ago!" —K.M. (59 y/o female micro peel patient)
