About a MicroLaser Peel
Board-certified Houston, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Lee offers MicroLaser peels for men and women hoping to improve their skin texture and tone, and for those wanting to achieve a more youthful appearance. At Nuveau Plastic Surgery, there are a number nonsurgical methods that can enhance the beauty of your skin. The MicroLaser Peel is one that provides superior results, performed right inside our Houston office and can be tailored accordingly to match the needs of your skin. The procedure removes a thin layer of damaged skin so that a new fresh layer can form. It is safe and effective for most patients and is a popular skin rejuvenation treatment recommended by Dr. Lee.
The MicroLaser peel is a treatment that can benefit both men and women with varying skin types. Patients with severe acne should not undergo this treatment until any open sores have healed. It is recommended for those who have and wish to improve the appearance of scars, keratosis, mild wrinkles, sun damage, pigment, and tone irregularities. Dr. Lee will assess the health of your skin and determine if this treatment is right for you. There are a number of alternative nonsurgical rejuvenation treatments that can be considered as well.
"Dr. Lee is very personable! He is always very thoughtful and kind. If you are looking to get a procedure done, he will be able to kindly guide you through the process. Very seldom do you meet a doctor who is as considerate and relational as Dr. Lee!"- J.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2017
"Dr. Lee performed successful trigger thumb surgeries (right & left) for my daughter (7 yo). I was very nervous about my dtr needing surgery & kept delaying it until I found him. I sought 2nd opinions, but after meeting Dr. Lee in consultation, I knew he was the right surgeon. He explained every detail calmly & answered all my questions. He is knowledgeable & highly skilled. My dtr had no complications or infections; she recovered quickly. Today, she has perfectly working thumbs, hardly any scar!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Apr 17, 2018
"I went today for my first facial with Teta. A friend had referred me so I decided to see what it was all about. When I arrived I was greeted immediately by 3 friendly faces. They welcomed me in and offered me a beverage. So far so good! First class service! Shortly after I began my facial not knowing really what to expect. Teta was very knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable. I left feeling rejuvenated and fresh faced! This was a great experience and I have already booked my next appointment! I feel good about my skin :) Thank you Teta and Nuveau for a first class experience from start to finish! I would definitely recommend!"- B.S. / Yelp / Apr 04, 2018
"Ok I don't even know where to start so I'll start with how caring and professional Dr Lee was from the first moment I met him, his office was amazingly clean and smelled so good and not to mention a beautiful office, his staff Eva, and I apologize for forgetting the other young ladies name but they were absolute sweethearts just being nice sometimes can go further than you could ever imagine, now getting back to Dr Lee, I was terrified about having my procedure, however I made my decision based on his education, reviews, and mostly his smile it was one of the most genuine smiles I'd seen unlike many doctors today they make you feel like NEXT I've got another right after this but Dr Lee actually wanted to take his time and Perfect his work he expressed it and definitely showed it, after I got home and finally removed the wrapping after 2 days(nervously) but as I kept unwrapping I was confused looking for scars I just knew I'd have racetracks all over that area and I cried real tears because I didn't find one ugly or nasty scar that man is amazing my life will never be the same I can't wait to go shopping and show off a little lol I'm gonna conclude here because there's so much more I could say but Dr Lee if you ever read this review I just wanna say God truly blessed you with an amazing gift and heart and with the utmost respect you are beautiful on the outside, it was one of my first thoughts but my last thought was how beautiful you are on the inside....(I have to get this out) PLEASE go and help those poor celebrities in Hollywood they really could use your services"- A.C. / Yelp / Feb 14, 2018

What to Expect
Nuveau Plastic Surgery has on-site treatment rooms that are comfortable and relaxing for our patients as they undergo their treatment. The skin will first be thoroughly cleansed, and a numbing ointment may be applied depending on the depth of the peel. The MicroLaser beam is then moved across the treatment area, which will start the process of gently damaging the top layer so it can be removed through a natural shedding process. As the skin heals, new cell growth will occur and essentially “resurface” the treated area. The result is a complexion that appears softer, more even, and healthier looking. In addition, mild wrinkles and other imperfections can be reduced. The procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes.
MicroLaser peels allow the practitioner to titrate the depth of the peel down to the micron level. We can perform a light, refresher type of procedure at 10 microns, or a full ablation as recommended by Dr. Lee.
In most patients, excellent results can be attained in one treatment session. Some individuals may need additional treatments to achieve the desired outcome. After a MicroLaser peel, your skin will be red and slightly swollen, and extremely sensitive to sun exposure or ultraviolet light. You may be given special skincare products with instructions on how to use them during the healing phase. Many of our patients at Nuveau Plastic Surgery combine this treatment with other nonsurgical procedures such as fillers, BOTOX, or skin tightening to provide the most optimal outcome without surgery.
