MicroLaser Peel for Iraqi War Veteran


A few months ago, a brave young woman entered the office of the Elizabeth Roche, M.D. MedSpa and told us her story.

Kelly* had been serving her country in Iraq and was home for a short break. During her time away, her skin had been severely damaged by the harsh desert sun and dryness.

“When I first meet Kelly, she had obvious signs of hyper-pigmentation everywhere except for where her glasses protected her,” says Dr. Roche. “She needed an intense peel to get her youthful skin back, so we planned a MicroLaser Peel for her on her next long break from her duties.”

A Free MicroLaser Peel Treatment

To honor Kelly’s war service and thank America’s soldiers, Dr. Roche performed the MicroLaser Peel treatment for free.

  • First Kelly’s face was numbed with a numbing cream 40 minutes prior to the procedure.
  • Then Dr. Roche performed the MicroLaser Peel, a procedure which took about 20 minutes.
  • Better yet, Kelly’s recovery time was brief – a MicroLaser Peel typically means several days to 2 weeks of avoiding sun exposure and adhering to an at-home regimen.

“A MicroLaser Peel is a great way to remove damaged hyper-pigmented skin and uncover the new skin below,” explains Dr. Roche. “The other benefit that patients obtain from a MicroLaser Peel is that collagen remolding gradually occurs, which helps with fine lines and wrinkles.”

New Skin, New Life


Kelly’s new skin came just in time. While in Iraq, she had met another officer and become engaged. As a result of her MicroLaser Peel treatment, she was able to walk down the aisle with glowing skin and a radiant smile.


“Kelly was great during the procedure and we were able to do a nice deep MicroLaser Peel for optimum results,” reports Dr. Roche. “Her recovery was smooth and the hyper-pigmentation was clearly improved.”
