As our skin matures, our natural exfoliation process slows down and we begin to develop a dull, lackluster appearance to our skin. In an effort to regain our natural glowing skin, old damaged cells must be removed to unveil healthy new tissue.
What is a Micro laser Peel?
As a superior alternative to Microdermabrasions and chemical peels, Micro Laser Peels offer exfoliation of the top layer of damaged skin to improve irregularities such as skin texture and discoloration. At Maya Medi-Spa Micro Laser peels are performed with a safe and highly effective, erbium laser known as Sciton.
How does Micro laser peel work?
Micro Laser Peels are performed with gentle laser settings that effectively remove thin layers of aged and damaged skin. The dead skin cells are then replaced by healthier cells, enhancing the texture and clarity of the skin. Micro Laser Peels are considered less invasive than Laser Resurfacing.

Before your Micro Laser Peel treatment, a topical numbing agent is applied to the treatment area for 30 minutes to provide comfort. As the treatment takes place, you will feel small bursts of heat, followed by a sunburn sensation. Immediately after your treatment, cool compresses and soothing ointment are applied to the face for additional comfort. Micro Laser Peel treatments last 20 minutes and are commonly combined with Broad Band Light and ProFractional Laser.
