Satin Peel

Satin Peels are best for patients who are ready for the next level and who can tolerate a little downtime. 

We use our Erbium laser to peel the entire outer 5-20 microns of skin, resulting in brand new skin that is immediately bright and tighter. Treatments are given by our Physician Assistant, Jessie Mallalieu, and our Cosmetic Laser Nurse, Susan Young.

This treatment can:

  • Smooth and rejuvenate sun-damaged and acne-prone skin
  • Minimize pore size
  • Reduce acne blemishes
  • Minimize acne scars
  • Provide a more even skin tone


Appointments are available Mondays through Fridays at our Frederick, Maryland office.  Schedule with with either of our expert providers: Jessie Mallalieu or Susan Young. Call now to schedule your Satin Peel: (301) 698-2424

Invest in your skin.

The Erbium Laser works by gently removing the uppermost layers of skin from the treated area. This light ‘buffing’ reveals the fresh, youthful skin that was hidden from view.

The provider will apply a layer of numbing cream one hour before your treatment begins. After the numbing cream is removed, the provider will pulse your skin with the laser. Most people perceive the ‘pulsing’ as a warm buzzing sensation.

Your skin will be red and dry for 2-5 days after your treatment. You may experience light flaking and peeling of dry skin for up to 7 days after treatment.

Most individuals see immediate improvement after just 1 treatment. We recommend a habit of Satin Peels 2-4 times a year for patients that prefer this type of peel.

Most reactions to the treatment are temporary. Serious complications are rare but possible. There are rare reports of:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Slight bleeding
  • Blistering
  • Pigment changes (lightening or darkening of skin) which can last up to 1-6 months after treatment

After many years of debating over doing enhancement or not in areas above my neck, I finally took the plunge. Very comfortable with Dr. To and trusting his skills, I had the LA Lift and some eye work done around 3 weeks ago. The process of healing is coming along and I feel better each day…and look better too…no more turkey neck. Dr. To has been very attentive and everyone in the office has a great bedside manner. Interestingly, no one but my husband and closest friends seem to notice the change. But I do and that is why I had it done…for me.* *Individual results may vary.
