How it Works
Laser Peel can be done on the Face, neck chest hands abdomen and old scars.
Laser peel is a process where the laser is programmed to take off a very precise thickness of skin. The remaining healthy skin will then replace the old surface with a healthy more even layer of new skin. This process removes fine lines, wrinkles, evens up color and generally will improve the youthfulness and vitality of the aging face. We have the Sciton Laser that offers the BBL and Moxi Laser Treatment.
Laser Peel vs.
What are the advantages of the laser over a chemical peel?
A chemical peel done in the hands of someone skilled and experienced in doing them can produce similar results to a laser peel at lighter depths. Unlike a chemical peel which involves placing liquid of varying strength on the face, the laser uses a carefully programmed precisely controlled beam of light to remove a precise depth of skin. At the skin surface the chemical peel has very precise control over the depth and the edge of the peel.

Frequently Asked Questions on Laser Peel.
Does a Laser Peel hurt?
It can but this is controlled by applying a topical facial cream that numbs the skin. Most people can tolerate the pain with little difficulty resulting in an effective and safe treatment.
Is it expensive?
Not really especially when compared to the alternatives such as a surgical face lift. The cost depends on what we peel and also how deep a peel your skin will require. The range is between $625 - $2250 and this will vary on the depth of the peel, the amount of tightening needed, including the eyelids etc.
What areas can be treated?
Laser peels can be done on any skin areas. This treatment is mostly done for the face but the hands and upper chest produces nice results as well. Stretch marks, burn scars and surgical scars are treated with laser peels and laser resurfacing.
What about a laser peel for men?
Men do have laser peels. Generally men have much more reason to have a laser peel than women.
Is a picture required?
