Harnessing the power of light, laser resurfacing treats a variety of dermal conditions, ranging from acne scars to age spots. Listen for these two categories of lasers: ablative (ones that remove thin layers of skin) and nonablative (those that tighten skin and stimulate collagen growth). LEARN MORE ›

I'm 57 and sun damage, age, and recent weight loss was really starting to show in my face. In late October '13 I had fully ablative laser resurfacing with spot treatment at the Gateway Laser Center. I also had a TCA peel around my neck. The surgery was done at the Gateway Center and they did a... READ MORE

Combined 1540nm/2940nm laser procedure to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin appearance. A few days down time, relatively painless, results were very rewarding. Dr Martin is also my go to for Botox treatments. I am still able to articulate expression without the nasty frown lines. All... READ MORE

Dr. Palm was recommended to me by someone very familiar with the many cosmetic surgeons in San Diego. She said she was the best and I can say that the recommendation matched the results. When I went in for my consultation, I was impressed with the location of the office, the modern... READ MORE

Smartskin CO2 Fractional Ablative Laser Resurfacing Review I will start by saying that despite some of the reviews and advertising out there, this is a serious procedure that can do much more than simply leave you looking as if you have “sunburn”. The procedure and recovery time are of... READ MORE

Two months ago an oculoplastic surgeon performed ptosis repair, and upper and lower eyelid lifts for me. After the surgery I still had some tiny bumps and wrinkles around my eyes. I was told to go to Dr. Amron's office in Beverly Hills for laser resurfacing. His medical group is well known and... READ MORE

Good day, I have had CO2RE resurfacing exactly 2 weeks ago from today for acne scarring and I have a mixture of boxcar, icepick and (rolling?) some odd sunken scars. I would rate my scarring as medium-mild. So far, I have seen modest improvement at best, some scars have soften up and a... READ MORE

I've spent a lot of time in the sun since I was a kid. This has given me lots of brown, age spots. Dr. Doyle gave me a series of treatments (some were from her nurse prac.). The results amazed me and my family. My sister is next! Totally worth it. Great staff and Dr Doyle is wonderful. After... READ MORE

I moved from Oregon to Arizona just about a year ago at which time I discontinued my monthly laser treatments. For two years I had been getting a "Trinity" treatment monthly using Alma lasers. They were EXPENSIVE! They were a bit painful. However, they were effective and I could tell the... READ MORE

Dr. Rahimi completed a full face and neck laser resurfacing treatment less than one week ago. My main areas of concern were sun damage, skin latiscity and volume loss. I am VERY HAPPY with the results thus far. I consulted with a number of Los Angeles surgeons that are experienced with CO2... READ MORE

At 55 I have taken really good care of my skin and don't look my age. But still the signs of ageing were starting to show and I could see what my skin would be like in a few years and wanted to keep that from happening. I really did my due dilligence and read up on all the proceedures and... READ MORE

I've just had my first ever laser skin resurfacing treatment and I'm on day 5. I can only describe it as brutal!! I've been in and out of hospital almost everday. I've been in agony and no amount of tramadol or anything else would help. I've got severe dizziness and its actually difficult to... READ MORE

I had this procedure done 5 days ago and, WOW, I can already tell a huge difference! The last bit of brown, peeling skin washed away today. I have a big pain tolerance, so it wasn't as bad as other reviews make it sound. I applied numbing cream 2 hours prior, and then my dr gave me 8 shots in... READ MORE

I'm 41 years old and have been going for regular laser treatments for the last few years. Over the winter I felt it was time to kick the treatments up a notch. I had a partially ablative laser done. The depth was 250-500 microns depending on the area and a 15% ablation (meaning 15% of my... READ MORE

I covered my face one hour before the procedure, and then 1/2 hour before the procedure with Lidocaine. I took valacyclovir took 2 tablets twice a day, one day before the surgery, and the day of surgery, and one day after surgery for infection. I took 2 OXYCODONE 5.325 MIL. AND 2 HYDROCODONE 5...

I went to see Dr. John Bitner about having laser skin resurfacing to even out my skin tone by having my age spots and freckles removed. I was so impressed with him and the time he took to explain what procedure would work best for me and the results I could expect. Just a few days after having... READ MORE

I paid $1,800 for a CO2 facial rejuvenation and can not tell any difference. I was told it would tighten and help fine lines. After the procedure I was red and my chest looked like it had red scratches on it for quite some time. When that dissipated and I completely healed, my skin looked just... READ MORE

The recovery was fairly easy. In my case, you just have to make sure to wear a lot of sun block after the procedure, especially that when I did it in September. It was still pretty warm weather, so I just have to make sure to follow all of the instructions. Basically, you wear a lot of Vaseline,... READ MORE

My experience was less painful then I anticipated, and currently I am anxiously waiting for positive results regarding my appearance. I will update since today is only the second day after my procedure which not only encompassed Fractional CO2 laser, but 2 Perlane Filler and 2 Restylane fillers.... READ MORE

I got Dot laser 3 weeks ago and Have NOT seen any change or results. My face looks exactly the same as before. I went in to minimize pores and old acne scars. My skin hasn't changed. I don't know how long the wait is till you see results, but from ready other good reviews most people seen... READ MORE

I had laser skin resurfacing in October for acne scars. My doctor said she used erbium on my cheek where I had deeper scars and fraxel for the rest of my face. I was pretreated with hydroquinone to prevent hyperpigmentation which I was really concerned about. It's been 3 months and what a... READ MORE
