Dr. Leslie Smith is the founder of Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics in Wayzata, MN. With extensive training and over a decade of experience, Dr. Smith is one of the premier cosmetic and laser doctors in the Minneapolis St. Paul area for minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedures.

What is a Micro Laser Peel?
The Micro Laser Peel is a gentle laser-assisted skin peel designed to correct skin concerns and improve skin tone and texture. It is a safe, comfortable and minimally invasive procedure that aims to address issues such as wrinkles, pigmentation or sun damage, and ultimately rejuvenate the entire face. The Micro Laser Peel requires less downtime and is also more effective than traditional resurfacing techniques like microdermabrasion or chemical peels. For optimal results, Dr. Smith takes excellent care in customizing treatment according to the condition and concerns of each patient.
How Does the Micro Laser Peel Work?
The Micro Laser Peel is a skin resurfacing treatment that precisely ablates a thin layer of skin to remove old, damaged cells and to reveal new, healthier tissue. Through this process, the Micro Laser Peel works to eliminate blemishes and pigment irregularities, while encouraging the growth of new cells and smoother skin. The innovative laser peel technology allows for multiple treatment purposes, which means the device can be adjusted to target a specific condition or concern. At Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics, patients who undergo the Micro Laser Peel feel that their face looks significantly less tired and more vibrant once their skin has healed.
What Does the Micro Laser Peel Treat?
Dr. Smith uses the most advanced technologies to deliver safe, comfortable and effective treatment. Once your concerns and expectations have been discussed, she will customize the procedure to meet your needs and skin type. Some of the most common problems treated using the Micro Laser Peel include:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Pre-cancerous lesions
- Large pores
- Sunspots and brown spots (Including freckles)
- Discoloration or pigmentation
- Overall sun damage
Benefits of the Micro Laser Peel
Since the Micro Laser Peel focuses on the surface skin and does not penetrate deeply, the procedure causes little discomfort and requires minimal downtime. For this reason, Micro Laser Peel is also referred to as “the weekend peel”, because most patients feel comfortable enough to return to work within three to four days. Other benefits offered by this treatment include:
- Improved tone, texture, and tightness
- Removal of blemishes and pigmentation
- Quick treatment time (15 to 30 minutes)
- Safe, comfortable procedure
- A fast and simple healing process
- Highly customizable
Is Micro Laser Peel Right for You?
The Micro Laser Peel is a highly developed skin resurfacing treatment that can smoothen, brighten and transform your complexion.

So, if you are seeking to address textural issues and skin concerns, or simply wish to rejuvenate your complexion, our Micro Laser Peel treatment could be the next step to achieving naturally beautiful and healthier skin. To ensure that this procedure is right for you, Dr. Smith will evaluate your skin and condition before proceeding with treatment.

Micro Laser Peel FAQs
What can I expect from the treatment?
Dr. Smith delivers smoother, healthier and more vibrant skin with Micro Laser Peel treatment. Patients typically see a significant and immediate change in skin texture and tightness of their skin.
How long is the healing process?
Micro Laser Peel has a short recovery time. After treatment, Dr. Smith will apply a protective barrier such as Calendula ointment to keep the skin hydrated and protected.
After the Micro Laser Peel, your skin will be slightly pink and you may feel a sensation similar to a sunburn. The skin will begin to slough as it heals, which may cause some itchiness or minor irritation. These side effects generally subside within 2 to 4 days.
During the healing process, it is important to keep the skin hydrated. Dr. Smith will recommend a post-treatment skincare regimen to ensure the best outcome.
How many treatments will I need?
The number and frequency of treatments required will depend on your initial skin condition and what you are hoping to achieve. At Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics, Dr. Smith generally recommends at least two or three Micro Laser Peels per year to maintain a healthy, radiant look.
Will I need anesthetic for the procedure? Your comfort during the procedure is important to us. At its most shallow setting, most patients can tolerate the treatment with no anesthetic. At deeper settings, Dr. Smith will apply a topical numbing cream for your comfort.
