He did one pass with deep columns to stimulate collagen production and one pass that fractionaly ablated my outer layer of skin. It was quite... READ MORE

24 Yo F CO2 Laser Treatment for Acne Scars

A little about me. I'm 24 years old and have ice pick and box scars due to acne. The struggle. It’s exhausting. I’m always aware of how the light hits my face and whether it’s highlighting the crater-like skin. Is it too humid, causing my foundation to collect like specks in the pits and pores... READ MORE

NOT WORTH IT (18 Years Old, Scar Removal)

This is going to be a REALLY long review, because everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong. So in January of this year, my mom recommended I get some laser on my old self harm scars on my forearms and upper thighs. I agreed, because after 4 years, the scars were as healed as they were...

Fraxel CO2 Laser for Facial Scar

A dermatologist did a precautionary shave biospy on my face 2 years ago and I was left with an indented scar. I guess he went too deep. Not even sure a shave biopsy was necessary but anyway... I'm left to try and find a way to make my scar less noticeable. Tried filler but it didn't help too... READ MORE

Lower Eyelit Resurfacing, CO2 Canada

I did this because of my age. I am 50 years old. I thought I would try the laser instead of using botox or fillers to see if it works. I have never used botox, or fillers. I thought I would start with a small area of my face to see how it works with my skin. This is my first laser treatment.... READ MORE

CO2RE-Fractional but Aggressive on Eyes

Well, it's been 7 weeks and 2 days since my CO2 laser and I am concerned. At 2 weeks, I was very happy with the outcome on the rest of my face (all but my eyes). My pores were smaller and my face seemed a lot smoother. I even went and had my hair done and an aesthetician was there and she made... READ MORE

47 Yo Male with Outer Eyelid Hooding

I have been seeing good results for ladies getting their eCO2 (Lutronic's fractionated CO2 laser) treatment: especially, around the eyes.

37 Year Old Unhappy About the Way my Skin Was Aging

New Life for an Old Face Damaged by the Sun-- from the South-- Age 58 - Atlanta, GA

I was happy that the CO2 laser peel was recommended and combined with my other procedures. This procedure may not be for everyone, but it certainly turned back the hands of time on my face. If you are not ruthless about covering up and wearing a hat then this is not for you. I had to hide from... READ MORE
