What is a
MicroLaserPeel® provides superior results because it can be administered with great precision of depth. The procedure is performed in our GraceMed office and can be custom tailored to your specific skin conditions and desired outcome.
The MicroLaserPeel’s® beam is scanned over a treatment area to remove a very thin layer of the skin. Removing the top layer eliminates some of the damaged cells that can give skin a tired, aged look. As the skin heals, fresh cells grow and resurface the treated area. The result is healthier-looking skin, often with reduced wrinkles and improved color evenness. Our patients boast MicroLaserPeel will transform your skin to looking dull to vibrant.
MicroLaserPeel® Treatment Areas and Benefits
Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, though some people also treat the chest and hands. Some of the benefits of a MicroLaserPeel® are:
- Refreshed and rejuvenated complexion
- Customizable laser depths
- Minimal downtime
- Treats wrinkles, scars, and sun damage
- Improves poor skin tone
- Visible results after one treatment
- Long-lasting results
- Comfortable and virtually painless
The MicroLaserPeel® is ideal for patients with purely aesthetic skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, light or dark patches, acne scarring, or keratosis (precancerous lesions). The patient looking for better results than microdermabrasion or light chemical peels can offer, yet, still has little time for the healing process and are:
- In good physical health
- Have realistic goals and expectations
- Have fine to moderate lines and wrinkles of the face
- Have rough skin texture
- Has a level of superficial skin discoloration
- Mild scarring
- Dull, lackluster skin
MicroLaserPeel® is suitable for all skin types.

Commonly Asked Questions
Will the MicroLaserPeel be painful?
The MicroLaserPeel® causes very little pain as it’s treating only the uppermost layer of skin. Most of our GraceMed patients tolerate the mile pain with no anesthetic whatsoever. If a deeper setting is required to achieve the desired results, a topical cream can be applied to numb the area being treated.
How will my skin appear right after the MircoLaserPeel procedure?
Invididual results may vary. Your skin may appear reddish, flaky and feel as though you have had a slight sunburn. Some clinets experience mild swelling. The dry, top layer of skin that has been affected by the resurfacing will gradually peel away over the next few days after your treatment.
What will happen during the procedure?
Your skin will be cleaned in the treatment area and your eyes will be protected with safety shields. The physician will position the laser handpiece above the skin and will hold it in place as the computer-guided scanner moves the laser beam around the treatment area. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure usually lasts 15 to 30 minutes.
When should I expect results from my treatment?
Because only the outer layer of skin is treated, most patients notice an obvious improvement in tone, texture and color evenness once the skin heals in approximately 3-4 days.
