A Laser Peel is an easy and effective way to improve the texture and appearance of the skin. Furthermore, it offers a gentle treatment experience with less downtime than alternative laser and chemical peel solutions. Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery is proud to offer this skin rejuvenation solution to the residents of Lakeside, Orange Park, Ponte Vedra Beach and Jacksonville, Florida.
What is a Laser Peel?
This is a light skin resurfacing treatment that removes a thin layer of skin. In the process, it removes damaged, aged skin to restore a youthful glow with improved skin tone, texture and color. This is all performed with laser energy, which is fully automated and can therefore be administered with complete precision and safety. Once the outermost layer of skin is removed, fresh, healthy skin can grow in its place.
How Much Does a Laser Peel Cost in Jacksonville, FL?
The cost of a Laser Peel treatment varies by patient, as we may recommend different approaches or multiple treatment sessions depending on your skin type. During your consultation, we’ll review your goals in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this point, we will be able to provide you with all costs associated with your treatment. For your convenience, we accept all major credit cards and offer financing.
What are the Benefits of a Laser Peel?
Laser Peel treatments are a great option for addressing signs of aging with minimal downtime. Specifically, we may recommend a Laser Peel for the following concerns:
- Mild wrinkles

- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage

What is a Laser Peel Treatment Like?
A Laser Peel treatment is generally well-received by patients. However, we can apply a topical anesthetic at your request if you are receiving a deeper treatment or if you are concerned about discomfort during the treatment process. During treatment, we’ll position the laser handpiece above the treatment area and fix it in place. Then, a computer-guided scanner will maneuver the laser beam around the treatment area. Treatment typically takes about 20 minutes, although the exact duration of treatment can vary depending on the size of the area being treated.
What is a Laser Peel Recovery Process Like?
After Laser Peel treatments, you’ll notice that the skin looks dehydrated and flaky. The outermost layer of skin will peel off in the days following treatment. Additionally, you’ll experience redness and swelling in the skin that are best compared to the sensation of sunburn. These symptoms will typically last up to 8 hours, during which time patients are advised to use sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure to prevent any skin damage. However, patients are usually comfortable returning to work and other activities immediately following this brief recovery period.
What Results Can I Expect from a Laser Peel?
Most patients will begin to see results from their Laser Peel approximately 3-5 days after treatment, after the skin heals. At this point, you can expect noticeable improvements in skin tone, texture and color. While most patients achieve significant improvements in just one treatment session, we may recommend multiple treatment sessions for optimal results. Fortunately, a Laser Peel can also be combined with other treatment techniques to help patients achieve unique treatment goals.
Are Laser Peel Treatments Right for Me?
