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

"I had a tummy tuck with a hysterectomy, at age 58. I never would have thought of doing anything for myself, on the suggestion from my gyn I saw Dr. Lee. Dr. Lee did an excellent job and above all of my expectations. I am ever grateful for Dr. Lee, the TT has been life changing for me. My only regret is I didn’t do it sooner. He will be my doctor for any future procedures."- D.C. / Google / Apr 25, 2019
"Dr. Lee took care of the follow-up excision of a mole my derm had removed for a biopsy. He and his staff were friendly, personable, and I felt well-cared for. They all made sure I knew what was going to happen during the procedure, and ensured I was comfortable the entire time. Dr. Lee will be my go-to plastic surgeon from now on!"- L.M. / Google / Apr 11, 2019
"Dr Lee is very calm, with exceptional listening skills. He performed a small surgical procedure ( the tiniest incision ever) I could not be happier with the direct honest way of managing the expectations. A a lot of plastic and cosmetic surgeons are overselling / overpromising their results but not dr. Lee- a refreshing find. Highly recommend."- C.M. / Yelp / Mar 31, 2019
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.
