Santa Monica Smartxide treatment for fractional co2 in Santa Monica

Most Smartxide fractional co2 laser treatments are performed safely with local anesthetic, applied both topically and with injection.  I use the fractional co2 laser in my Santa Monica office and have achieved outstanding results with local anesthetic.
