Don’t let the mention of a gas make you think carbon dioxide lasers aren’t powerful. Used for dermal resurfacing, this type of laser removes outer layers of skin to reduce the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. LEARN MORE ›

Decided to go thru with CO2, + upper eye bleph 3 months earlier. I have a very high tolerance for pain... have had needles in my eyeball to prevent blindness from Diabetes, and hugely painful laser in the back of my eyes for the same reason. I am not a complaining type of person. I was very... READ MORE

I have suffered from acne like many of us here since i was 8 year old. I thought that the scar will fade with time, unfortunately, my acne was pretty severe so the scarring remains. I did some research and decided to tried on CO2 laser. In the past, i have tried chemical peels, salicylic peels... READ MORE

Excellent Doctor or should I say artist? Dr. Miller is really an artist and has the eye for exactly what is best for each person and is 100% honest and ethical with his recommendations. He is always kind and professional in all his procedures and after visits. The CO2 laser was an involved... READ MORE

I was told the laser they were using was CO2 fractional, then they said it was fraxel. When I asked whether it was restore or repair, they just said it was the same machine. Im really not sure it was actually fraxel. I should have looked at the machine, but I was soo nervous. They put numbing... READ MORE

I have wanted to do Laser resurfacing for a long time to even out my skin tone - remove fine lines and tighten the skin on my neck. etc. I read all about this on RealSelf and see that it is pretty painful. My doctor suggested nerve blocking but I am a bit nervous about that too. I do plan to go... READ MORE

Hi. I finally went to the well reviewed Dr. Groff in San Diego who will be performing a UPC02 Full Face Laser with an erbium pass around my mouth, lips, and eyes. As far as I have seen his before and afters show the best result. One of my goals is to get a lift to my lip as my lips have sagged... READ MORE

I recently had CO2 laser under my eyes by Dr. Butterwick. The experience was very comfortable from start to finish, and I've had great results so far. Dr. Butterwick made sure all my questions and concerns were answered before the procedure started, she explained each step as we went through... READ MORE

I had two Matrix CO2 laser procedures done -April 2014 and June 2014. The second was deeper targeting my deep scars. While it took nearly a year to fully heal (my skin was rough for 10 months) it was worth it. My acne scars' depths have improved by about 50% - 1st one yielded 15% improvement... READ MORE

I had CO2 fractional done almost a month ago by Dr. Gladstone at this clinic. The treatment covered my face, neck, and part of my chest. My main concerns were a poikiloderma on my neck and a large melasma spot on my forehead. I also have an ugly, old, 'foreign-made' splenectomy scar on my... READ MORE

It's tough to watch yourself slowly age. I became obsessed with wanting surgery. I interviewed many surgeons and was instantly drawn to Dr. Tzikas. He is incredibly warm, compassionate, gentle and informative. His hands are golden and gentle, and the work is so subtle. I didn't want to look... READ MORE

For several years I've wanted to improve my under eye area. I first noticed pronounced hollowing under eyes around 2010. After much reading on this site and on the advice of friends who've had filler under eyes, I decided to try it. I went to a very reputable oculoplastic surgeon here in... READ MORE

Honestly this procedure produces so much stress if your anyone who does extensive research like me and it's a drug out experience with a lot of down time sitting in the house wondering if you'll be okay because the risks are so high with this procedure. I will say my acne scars that were the... READ MORE

First off, I just want to start off by saying I've suffered from severe acne for probably 8-9 years until I finally went on Accutane and it helped tremendously. My breakouts after were only around my TOM and usually only one small pimple, so it was definitely a night and day difference. My... READ MORE

. I too had co2 laser (not fract) under my eyes and this weekend, i'm 6,5 weeks out and I look like *'#%*.. :( I have massive redness and now hyper pigmentation and I'm scared that I will never look normal again. I try to cover it up during the day, but I can't hide it and after a few... READ MORE

I will be having the first of several CO2 laser treatments this Friday with Dr. Travis Shaw of the Stony Point Surgery Center. I've suffered from acne since I was just 8 years old. For years I visited a rather mediocre dermatologist who was unable to diagnose the cause of my problem and as I... READ MORE

I met Dr. Barrera a few months ago and found him to be a kind, most knowledgeable and talented surgeon. I am looking forward to the procedure and confident in putting myself into his care. Furthermore I found his staff helpful and friendly as well as most competent in explaining the cost and... READ MORE

I had a full facelift with neck liposuction. Additionally I had co2 laser resurfacing around my mouth. I'm on my 3rd day post op and my mouth is so swollen I can barely get it open to eat or drink. It is still oozing terrible with no signs of healing. From what I've read it sounds like I had a... READ MORE

So i have been having skin problems all my life, but more recently now that ive gotten older. (Im 29) ive always had breakouts & stuff, so for a long time,... READ MORE

My neck has always been older than my face. I've tried every dermatologist recommended cream, ultherapy, matrix rf, fotofacial (the latter two helped the most I think ) until finally, after extensive research I decided to bite the bullet, suffer the downtime and skip onto the CO2 fractional...
