The CO2 laser is a carbon dioxide laser used in skin resurfacing. Its effects are similar to those of chemical peels and dermabrasion, except it removes skin layers by vaporization rather than with chemicals or a sanding device. LEARN MORE ›

Fractional CO2 for Aging Skin

I spent a lot of time in the sun when I was younger (LA an Vegas), so had typical sun damage as a result. After turning 50 I also noticed slight sagging in my lower face, and I hated it.

CO2 Laser Exceeded my Expectations - Indooroopilly, AU

I was referred to Dr Lim after being told by three other specialists that the warts on my eyelid couldn't be removed due to the sensitive skin on the eyelid.

I had two Matrix CO2 laser procedures done -April 2014 and June 2014. The second was deeper targeting my deep scars.

CO2 Laser with Erbium - Palo Alto, CA

I had a CO2 laser with Erbium for acne scarring and fine lines. So far there is no improvement at all. I understand the results are not immediate, but I expected to see something at this point. I had Fraxel Restore a few years ago which did nothing either. I think I'm just not a good... READ MORE

Not Sure About This Laser...NEED HELP! - China, CN

I suffered from acne scars and I have decided to do this laser.

Co2 and Erbium Laser. Orlando, FL

I got a pretty good deal on a laser treatment $750- she basically threw in the chest laser for me since I've been going to her for a long time. It was partially CO2, under my eyes and a strip down my neck and all over my chest - the rest was the Yerbium laser. It's been almost 2 full months, and... READ MORE

Still Sexy at Sixty-five - Naples, FL

I found Dr. Argarwal on the Realself website. I chose him for my consultation for many reasons. I liked him because he is a “facial” plastic surgeon – specializing only in the face.
