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 ›

Hi all. I am 52 and recently retired after 25 very long years in law enforcement. I was raised in Southern California and Florida, so I have spent most of my life in a pool or on the beach. Needless to say, I have a lot of sun damage and wrinkles. I did a lot of research on skin resurfacing. I... READ MORE

I had this procedure done yesterday. I will change my "was is worth it" after a week or two. It is too soon to rate it today :-) I will try to update photos and my experience daily. I am 49 years old and did the procedure to reduce/get rid of wrinkles. The procedure was painful but tolerable.... READ MORE

As a 57 Causasian seeking work after a layoff, I was pleased with my facelift 4 months ago but wished to address remaining deep wrinkles. I had the eCO2 repair laser procedure 5 days ago and believe it will significantly improve things. It continues to be moderately painful. If you're... 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

I had acne scars for years and recently I've decided to do CO2 laser to reduce the scaring. The doctor did let me know that the scars will not 100% removed but it will reduce the depth of the scars by probably 50%. I took the treatment and it was painful although I had use numbing cream (more... READ 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

Preop is Sept 29th! Having pixel c02 omnifit used for full face resurfacing. So excited but was told I would require 3 full face treatments to obtain desired results...I guess I will be judge of that. It's 2000.00 for 3 treatments.

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

Susie was super bubbly and nice and just has absolutely GORGEOUS skin. She made sure I very thoroughly understood the procedure and defined terms like fraxelated and the type of laser she was using (CO2). Great. Just awesome personality and I'm excited for the results to show through! I've... READ MORE

I was not too satisfied with the price I paid for with the procedure to destroying my acne scars. I have done Chemical peels in the past and it was not at all effective. I would have thought that the co2 laser skin resurfacing procedure would do some type of justice to my skin, in the end i... READ MORE

I've had fillers and this is the next recommended step. Thankful for the other posts and reading their experiences. I'm as prepared as I can be and hope to document good information for others weighing out options. I'm hoping for smoother skin as I have large pores and tightening around the... 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 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

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 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
