Laser Peel*

We all want to maintain our healthy, firm and young looking skin. However, due to age, genetics and environmental exposures, the collagen within our skin begins to diminish as early as age thirty. The Laser Peel treatment uses advanced laser technology to help rebuild your own natural collagen and reduce the signs of aging – in as little as one treatment.

What is a Laser Peel?

A Laser Peel is a “thermal peel,” performed by a board certified physicians, that corrects the signs of aging. It is a safe and highly effective treatment for improving pigment irregularities, textural problems, lines and wrinkles. Most patients report a significant improvement in their skin’s condition after one treatment.

Just as we aerate our lawns to grow thick, healthy grass, a Laser Peel uses a similar concept to thicken your skin and stimulate natural collagen growth. After a Laser Peel treatment, you will immediately begin to experience tighter and rejuvenated skin.

Actual Patient

“I highly recommend Belcara Health for surgery or skin care. It is always a pleasure to visit their office.  The entire staff is wonderful!  You will feel so much better about yourself after going. They are excellent at what they do.”

How does it work?

By placing tiny holes within your tissue, this treatment triggers your body’s natural healing process to develop rich, new collagen stores. At Belcara Health, Laser Peels are performed with a safe and highly effective, profractional erbium laser known as Sciton.

What should I expect during my treatment?*

First, a topical numbing lotion is applied to the treatment area for 30 minutes to provide comfort. During the treatment, you will feel heat in the areas being treated, followed by a “sunburn” sensation. Cool compresses and soothing ointments are then applied to the face for additional comfort.  Laser Peel treatments last about 20 minutes.

What should I expect afterwards?*

Laser Peels provides big results with a relatively short down time. On average, sunblock and make-up may be applied in approximately three to four days following treatment. Skin tightening results are immediate and continue to improve up to six months.


“I had Profractional laser with amazing results. I had it done to fix my fine lines and for skin tightening (darn aging process) and it has been a dream come true for me to have great skin.  I’m no beauty queen but people say my skin looks amazing and ask me what I do!  I feel for everyone who is nervous about doing Profractional, I was too!  I can only recommend that you find someone you trust like I trust Dr. Martins. He is truly amazing, honest and so nice.”
