Micro Laser Peel – The “Weekend Peel”
Our Micro Laser Peel may be the perfect solution to resurface your skin. It is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other skin irregularities. It offers patients many advantages over traditional ablative resurfacing procedures that often involve discomfort and downtime.*
How Does Micro Laser Peel Work?
“Ablating” means you are actually punching holes in the skin to work the energy far beneath the surface. With non-ablative, you’re just transferring the energy through the skin. With the increasing demand for non-invasive treatments, the non-ablative laser treatments tend to be most popular. Some ablative lasers – such as the CO2, will provide longer lasting, deeper affects, but with significant downtime required for the skin to heal.Within the area of cosmetic laser medicine, there are two types of lasers – ablative and non-ablative. Both can treat skin pigmentation issues and stimulate collagen re-growth in the skin. Ablative lasers have a greater capability for targeting the surface of the skin, all the way down to the sub-dermis, where as non-ablative lasers (our Micro Laser Peel) can target the dermis without addressing the epidermis.
During the Micro Laser Peel session, Dr. Schwartz uses laser energy delivered via short, precise pulses to clear away layers of damaged skin. The laser is moved over the targeted area multiple times until imperfections are no longer visible and a smooth layer of skin is left. Unlike ablative laser treatments, this non-ablative laser energy causes minimal heat damage to the surrounding skin structure.*
Who Are the Best Candidates for the Micro Laser Peel?
Patients looking to resurface and rejuvenate their facial skin with minimal downtime may be interested in the Micro Laser Peel, also known as “The Weekend Peel”. During your consultation, Dr. Schwartz will evaluate the state of your skin to help determine if the Micro Laser Peel is suitable for producing your desired results.

Micro Laser Peel Recovery & Results
After the laser skin resurfacing procedure, patients may experience mild swelling and the discomfort for a few days. Symptoms can be controlled with cold compresses and a special prescription-strength skin care regimen for the first several days. While most patients can return to work and their normal day-to-day after two to three days, light redness may persist for several weeks.*
The full results of laser skin resurfacing may take months to fully appear. Although the results of younger and smoother looking skin are long-lasting, they are not permanent, as your skin continues to be subjected to the natural effects of aging.*
For patients who are looking for more “lunch time” procedures, our Forever Young BBL Photo Rejuvenation helps reduce redness and our PicoSure Focus skin rejuvenation can be used to reverse sun damage, melasma, acne scarring, fine lines and hyperpigmentation.
