How The treatment Works
How Does the Laser Micro Peel Work
During your Laser Micro Peel, a CO2 laser is scanned over a treatment area to accurately ablate (vaporize) a very thin layer of skin, removing the old, sun-damaged skin. The healing process is then activated to restore your skin and produce new, healthy skin cells.
Although most patients treat the face and neck, hands and chest are also excellent areas for the laser peel treatment.
You will wear protective eye-wear and should find the treatment comfortable. It will typically last between 30 minutes and 60 minutes. Within days, you’ll see your new glowing appearance.

We require a pre-treatment cream to prepare the skin for treatment. Post-skincare is recommended to decrease risks of discoloration.
