Schedule appointment for CO2 Laser Resurfacing.

Quick Facts
  • The latest generation of CO2 lasers allows our skin care professionals to control the depth of laser penetration; this precision means you can receive a conservative, moderate, or more aggressive treatment based upon your needs and goals
  • Laser-treated skin:
    • Stimulates your body’s natural healing process
    • Enhances collagen production and tightens skin
Is It Right For You
  • Generally requires only one treatment session
  • You want:
    • Elimination of discoloration
    • Pore refinement
    • Skin tightening
    • Collagen production
    • Diminished fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dr. Eviatar often recommends CO2 laser in the same appointment as eyelid surgery to tighten the skin around the eyelids and diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
  • You should expect to be red and swollen immediately after the procedure and up to a week afterwards, depending on the depth of the treatment.
  • Risks include:
    • Inflammation
    • Hyperpigmentation
    • Hypopigmentation
    • Infections (cold sores)
    • Very rarely is there scarring
The Procedure
  • For your overall comfort during the procedure, we apply a topical anesthetic or inject local anesthetic.
  • CO2 laser resurfacing (fractionated CO2) uses very short pulsed light energy (known as ultrapulse) or continuous light beams that are delivered in a scanning pattern to remove thin layers of skin with minimal heat damage.
