This was something I had wanted for quite awhile. I had several sun spots and general sagging. I wanted a more rejuvenated look.

I have wanted to do this for a long time but the downtime kept me from doing so, I am into day two and yes it is miserable, your face feels like it is on fire!, oozing and swollen. One of my eyes are almost swelled shut. It hurts to wash skin but you have to keep washing off the oozing and... READ MORE

I had deep wrinkles from sun exposure and having fair skin didn't help. I chose laser treatment because I did not want to look different, just better. The procedure itself was extremely painful. All of the painkillers and topical numbing creams could not possibly take away the pain of having... READ MORE

I underwent lumenis CO2 laser 9 days ago, on the 7th day when I was drying my face the towel got caught on the crust and it made the crust bleed. The area is still tender and i've been putting vaseline religiously. Will the crust/scab fall off when the wound is healed or should i take it off?... READ MORE

Before I did the CO2 laser, I had done about 7 Erbium laser for my face, and while I had seen positive improvements on my cheeks, jaws, chin and nose, I was not happy with the result shown on my forehead because the doctors who did the Erbium laser intentionally did only one quick pass on my...

I am 41. I would often hear "what's wrong?" when I felt happy. I also had some acne scarring from off and on during life, but predominantly cystic breakouts when I was pregnant. I will update. So far this is by far easier than I had read about. I may have forgotten some (meds and a helpful... READ MORE

I had this done today in hopes to reduce the stretch marks located on my shoulders. I thought I went in pretty informed but it was not at all what I expected. A lot more painful and bloody than I could ever have imagined. The laser tech said she did a 35 since we were dealing with stretch... READ MORE

Took me long enough but, I have finally found the person that makes me feel whole, calm and excited all at the same time. In preparation of our upcoming wedding in March I have decided to address a few areas of my body that have bothered me for a LONG time. I am a 45 1/2 YO female that has been... READ MORE

I had CO2 laser on July 2nd along with a blepharoplasty and fat injections to tear troughs. The surgeon only made one light pass with the laser to tighten up the under eye area. You can see the full review here. http://www.realself... READ MORE

I had my first Co2 few months ago but couldn't see much result as I had few deep scarring on my face that require a few treatments to get it fix. My doctor told me that it takes time. I agree with all the other ladies report on how each day goes by.. The skin gets really smooth after the dead... READ MORE

I am 7 days post op from full face CO2 laser resurfacing with fat transfer beneath my eyes. My chest was also lasered.

I just want to share my experience with fractional laser. Cosmetic or derma procedures are very affordable in the Philippines. It is actually one of the cheapest in the world. I suffered from acne breakouts for the past few months resulting in acne scars. I was so worried about it because I... READ MORE

I'm reading through these reviews after having the procedure and most are saying they didn't feel much pain. I was also given weak pain killers { which mostly just gave me a mild head ache} and a local numbing agent applied to my face. After about an hour the Doc started skinning my face with... READ MORE

Had this procedure yesterday. During the procedure, my face felt warm with little pin pricks - the worst was around the lips and nose. It was not as painful as I thought it would be. They give you a Lortab and a Xanax before and put numbing cream all over. I am 54, a redhead and have sun... READ MORE

Co2 laser has the best results, but it has a higher risk and recovery. I used a Board Certified Physician that I trusted. I did the necessary research and I felt confident that it was a good decision for me. After 13 days I am very satisfied. I have smooth skin and the wrinkles under my eyes... READ MORE
