Laser Peel Overview

Although they achieved excellent wrinkle removal, older laser treatments included very long recovery periods and were not flexible enough to give patients many options. Newer technologies allow for better, more precise control. With the latest tools, Dr. Siegel can tailor facial laser peels to your needs and lifestyle. When you undergo a laser peel treatment with an experienced doctor, your recovery doesn’t need to be as long or labor-intensive. Dr. Siegel is considered a top specialist in laser skin peels in Houston. If you’d like to undergo laser rejuvenation therapy, he will create a custom treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results.

Laser Peel FAQ's

Are laser peels safe?

Especially when you work with an experienced facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Siegel, laser peels are very safe. At our Houston practice, we use a state-of-the-art laser, high-quality materials, and precise techniques to minimize any risk to patients. When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Siegel will customize a treatment plan specifically for your skin tone, cosmetic preferences, and medical needs to help ensure that you remain safe and healthy while revitalizing your skin to the best of our ability.

How do I know if I should get a laser peel or microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion involves superficially exfoliating the outermost layers of the skin. This is accomplished by using micro-crystals that “abrade” the skin, and a vacuum effect that immediately removes the resulting dead skin cells. In contrast, a laser peel enhances your look by modifying deeper layers of skin. Since a laser peel is a more intensive treatment, it can help with a wider range of aesthetic issues and typically offers more dramatic results. Microdermabrasion can improve the appearance of very fine wrinkles and scars, making it an excellent choice for patients who want to brighten their skin but are not dealing with more severe signs of aging, such as scars, deeper winkles, pigmentation, or sun damage. Laser rejuvenation therapy, however, can help soften more pronounced wrinkles, remove scars, minimize the appearance of blemishes, and generally improve skin texture. Since it is a more rigorous treatment option, a laser peel requires some recovery time, while microdermabrasion requires very little healing.

If you have relatively minor cosmetic complaints and want to upgrade your skin with virtually no recovery, microdermabrasion may be the correct choice for you. However, if you want to more substantially enhance your facial appearance or reverse more severe signs of aging, and you are willing to take some time to recover, a laser peel can be a more appropriate option. Dr. Siegel will help you determine which treatment (or combination of treatments) suits your needs and preferences at your initial consultation.

What are the different types of laser peels?

The two primary types of laser peels are CO2 laser peels and Erbium laser peels, named for the type of laser they use to revitalize your skin. CO2 lasers are usually more powerful, while Erbium lasers offer milder effects. Dr. Siegel uses the Lumenis® Ultrapulse™ Fractional CO2 laser. Fractional CO2 lasers are some of the most advanced on the market. They maintain the intensity of a CO2 laser while minimizing side effects and shortening recovery time. Dr. Siegel can further discuss which type of laser peel may be right for you at your first appointment.
