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.

"I had such a wonderful experience at Nouveau Plastic Surgery and Med Spa!! The staff is beyond spectacular. From the hands on (and handsome ladies/ gentlemen) owners Randy Rakes and Dr. Edward Lee to the nurse, injectors and Esthetician's (Alonah rocks!!).... Everyone is very informative, well trained, kind, knowledgeable, and on point. I've never felt in more capable and experienced hands. They have all the newest and greatest technology to aid in skin rejuvenation. And if you need a little help beyond that (which I did), Dr. Lee is one of the absolute best plastic surgeons in town. He is meticulous in his art. I would trust him with any procedure I decide to have done in the future and I feel completely confident in recommending him to any of my friends, family, or acquaintances. If you're looking for a wonderful med spa, Nouveau Plastic Surgery and Medspa is hands-down one of the best I've ever been to. Trust me! You'll love it there! It's amazing!!"- P.G. / Yelp / Aug 01, 2018
"Marty does brilliant work with injectables. She makes a plan, takes her time. She is very experienced and knowledgeable. I was comfortable with her and very impressed with the results. I had natural, but noticeable changes and Marty made suggestions no one else had. :)"- C.G. / Yelp / May 03, 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.
