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 ›

I had been researching ways to treat my teenage acne scars for several years now. I had done the fraxel treatments a few times and I did see some improvement, but of course like us all, wanted even more. After carefully considering the Co2, my dr finally approved me for it. He was a bit... READ MORE

As I completed my first consultation with Dr. Mayl, I felt confident that my goal to change the effects of time, genetics, and lifestyle of my sixty-eight year old face would be accomplished. He listened intently to my expectations and concerns. Then, after an examination and photography¸... READ MORE

Hello, I am going in for the gold with the CO2 Laser on the 10th and I am so nervous and excited about the procedure. I have seen some very impressive results from the CO2 laser and i have mild to moderate scars so I'm hoping for the best. I will definately keep everyone posted on results after... READ MORE

I consulted with Dr Dayan only about the CO2 Laser. Day of laser I waited over an hour- he never gave me anything to numb my skin nor offered any sort of pain killers. He had his two associates perform the laser even though they werent in the consult and he was no where to be found. During the... READ MORE

This is an up date to my first post. First I just want to thank you all for your awesome responses and to let you all know I did go through with the proceedure and am on my 6 day of recovery. A week before my proceedure I started using the very expensive bleaching cream and took the anti viral... READ MORE

Dr. Chan and his staff are great. I was scared to have my procedure because I had heard so many horror stories about laser resurfacing. Dr. Chan put me at ease. He used shots to numb my skin (this was the only part I felt and it wasn't bad!) and the rest of the procedure was painless. It took... READ MORE

I have been looking at reviews on here for a few months and researching different proceedure options. I have had good skin mostly but have had dark circles and freckles my whole life. The dark circles getting worse with age. After losing 25 pounds recently I started noticing a sagging of my... READ MORE

I loathed running on the treadmill at the gym because the treadmills face huge mirrors and I had to watch the skin on my face bounce with each stride. After the procedure I was astounded by difference in the elasticity of my face - - it no longer bounces. Further, I had numerous spots/freckles... READ MORE

I've had raised scarring on my chin for the last 2 years and wanted to have the area smoothed out. I had the co2 (100% ablative) laser done twice just on the raised scars. I would not recommend this procedure because the laser only goes so many microns deep. Dermabrasion would the be the way to... READ MORE

As not ready for face lift, plastic surgeon thought this would be a good alternative. His assistant performed the procedure which wasn't too bad as had a percocet and Xanax beforehand. Was red and itchy for about ten days but only had peeling around eyebrows and mouth. The area under my eyes... READ MORE

I have a handful of chicken pox scars on my face left over from childhood. They have always negatively affected my self esteem. When I was a teenager, a plastic surgeon told me I would have to carry these scars forever. Determined not to give up, I spent years trying everything and anything with... READ MORE

I regret setting foot in the office of Dr Groot. His precision with the laser is not the greatest which in turn left me with a permanent flaw that I'll have to deal with for the rest of my life. I've given it adequate time to heal and followed his post-op instructions. It's been a nightmare from... READ MORE

My previous research, as well as my consultation with Dr. Chesnut, revealed that this procedure is quite intensive and, although initially somewhat painful, it can have a relatively brief recovery time...with excellent results. The CO2 laser treatment is often one of the reasons the skin of... READ MORE

When I was 17, I experienced an incredibly traumatic event which left me with bad lacerations to my cheek, nose and ear. I had a great deal of emotional trauma coming to terms with the scars on my face, It greatly affected my confidence and self worth. I came to Dr Lim to improve the appearance... READ MORE

Day of procedure - Had laser resurfacing done on wed at noon. The actually procedure was tolerable. The pain immediately after was pretty bad. A topical pain killer was put on my face before leaving the office that would keep me comfortable a few hours. When that wore off it just felt like a... READ MORE

Although Dr. Canaglia staff reviewed details of the procedure, I later had two friends counsel me not to do the procedure based on the awful experience (pain/bloody/pigment variances) of their friends. I was able to review daily post surgery photos of another Caniglia patient and actually spoke... READ MORE

I will be updating with pictures. I am a pretty well preserved 44 (thank you Botox and Restylane) Day 1 - I was extremely nervous to have this done after having been on here and reading about the recovery process. I did not use any type of valium or pain pills like I've read some have. I put... READ MORE

I have had brown aging spots on my face for about 15 years. I'm 69. Over the past few years they are getting larger and there are more of them. Used lots of concealer under foundation but they still bled through. Most people I talked with about it said they didn't even notice, but it... READ MORE

At 60 years old, I had wrinkles, brown spots, lines forming over my upper lip, and a turkey neck. I thought I should think about getting a face lift until Dr. Jason Emer told me that he could correct my issues with a CO2 laser, Smart Lipo, Botox, and fillers. He showed me pictures of his mom...

I had co2 laser and there's been pros and cons. Pros skin complexion looks a bit better, bad is that it left me with laser marks. My... READ MORE
