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
"Did an amazing job! I went in for fillers while I friend went to get a mole removal. Not going to lie I did have a lot of swelling which freaked me out but after about a week there was no more swelling and after the first few weeks everything just balanced so beautifully. You can't tell that I've had anything done and my face looks a lot more symmetrical than it did before. My face looks more youthful and I love it! My friends mole removal went great for him. He says he can't even notice a scar! Ill definitely be a repeat customer!"- B.L. / Yelp / Jun 08, 2019
"I’m a work in progress for Dr Lee. I had face and neck surgery a week ago. Im no young lady but I feel I did really good. I was counseled about expectations and feel so far that my results have been amazing! Dr Lee is extremely professional and gave me the feeling that he sincerely cares about me, my feelings, and my needs! So refreshing to see a physician that cares and wants the best for me!! As for this transformation, I’m sure when I heal you will see photos! His assistant Eva is just as amazing too. I highly recommend Nuveau and Dr Lee!"- T.S. / Google / Jun 08, 2019

"Just had surgery with Dr. Lee and I have nothing but good things to say about him. He is wonderful, listens to you and your concerns. He’s not overly touchy like other surgeons and really respects his patients. Total capsulectomy and emboloc of my breast implants. I am 100% happy with him and his work."- S.P. / Google / Jun 05, 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.
