About the MicroLaserPeel

The MicroLaserPeel Atlanta utilizes laser energy to remove outer layers of skin cells, revealing softer, smoother skin underneath. The precise depth of the peel can be easily adjusted, allowing Dr. Robinson to customize this procedure to the unique concerns and desired outcome of each patient. This procedure effectively produces refreshed, revitalized skin with visible improvement to texture, tone and clarity.

Candidates for the MicroLaserPeel

The MicroLaserPeel is an effective treatment option for the following skin issues:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Shallow scarring, from acne or varicella
  • Pigmentation irregularities
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin texture or tone
  • Benign skin growths

While the face and neck are the most common treatment areas for the MicroLaserPeel, the device can also be used to enhance the appearance of the skin on the chest, shoulders and hands.

Minimally Invasive Procedure

The MicroLaserPeel is a minimally-invasive procedure that does not typically involve any anesthesia or incisions. Its used to deliver the laser energy across the surface of the skin in the treatment area. Because the laser does not usually penetrate very deeply into the skin, this procedure is usually tolerated very well without anesthetic. Topical numbing cream may be used for especially sensitive areas or for deeper treatments. Most MicroLaserPeel treatments take 30 minutes or less to complete.

Recovery & Results

After your procedure, your skin will appear “frosty,” due to dehydrated skin cells treated by the laser. These skin cells will flake away in the days following your procedure, leaving smoother, more youthful skin in their wake. Skin may be red and sensitive during this part of the recovery, which usually lasts 3-4 days. Once the peeling is over and the redness has subsided, you will probably feel comfortable applying makeup and returning to your daily routine. Results will be apparent once the skin has healed and will last for some time before a touch-up procedure is needed.
