To identify the best treatment for you and your complexion
A micro-laser peel is a treatment often requested at our dermatology practice. In this article, you’ll find out why.
Micro Laser Peels for Skin Rejuvenation
At Platinum Dermatology, we offer our patients many options for improving their skin, including chemical peels and micro laser peels. Unlike other treatments for facial rejuvenation, laser skin resurfacing with a micro laser peel has a fixed penetration of the skin.
Micro laser peels allow our specialists to determine the best depth to enhance the rejuvenating effect for each patient. This can involve as little as no downtime or up to a week’s downtime for deeper resurfacing or combination treatments.* This is unlike the way in which chemical peels work which has to do with their concentration and the amount of time they are left in contact with the skin.

The skin specialists at Platinum Dermatology meet with each patient one-on-one. They get to know each person as an individual in order to determine which facial rejuvenation treatment is best suited to a patient’s unique skin and goals.
Factors that influence the decision include:
- Skin tone and type
- Thickness of skin
- Desired result
- Recovery time desired
- Previous skin resurfacing treatments performed

What Happens During a Micro Laser Peel at Platinum Dermatology?
During a preliminary consultation, the specialist dermatologists at our practice may recommend micro laser skin resurfacing to correct:
- Acne scars
- Pigmented lesions
- Sun damaged skin
A micro laser peel is a relatively quick treatment, depending on the size of the area being treated. Our caring, patient-centric team strives to ensure comfort, using the most appropriate form of anaesthetic for a patient’s specific needs. During laser skin resurfacing, a laser head is carefully passed back and forth, resurfacing the treatment area to reveal new, healthy skin.*

Platinum Dermatology Explains What to Expect after a Micro Laser Peel
The majority of patients who visit our practice for laser skin resurfacing experience mild swelling and discomfort after their treatment is complete. This is normal and can usually be controlled with ice packs.
Our team of trained medical professionals is an important quality that sets Platinum Dermatology apart. Every patient can sit back and relax, knowing that they are in the hands of a qualified professional who is looking after their health, along with their appearance.
Platinum Dermatology provides each micro laser peel patient with after-care instructions that make healing easy. Perhaps the most important instruction is that patients do not pick or scratch the treated area. The dead skin will naturally slough off completely in approximately 1-7 days depending on the personally tailored depth of the treatment. Forcing crusty skin off before it is ready can cause scarring. No make-up can be worn until the new skin barrier has healed and strict sun protection is important during this early post treatment phase.
A micro laser peel will leave skin looking pink for about 2 -14 days depending on the depth of the treatment.* Make-up can easily be worn to cover this. Good sun habits will prevent further sun damage of if you are outdoors, the specialist dermatologists at Platinum Dermatology tell patients to apply a strong, broad-spectrum sunscreen, wear a hat and clothing to shield their exposed skin.
When all the visible signs of a micro laser peel subside, our patients enjoy fresh, radiant skin.
