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 โ€บ

With years of sun damage and following 2 MOHs surgeries and 5 biopsies, I opted for a CO2 laser procedure. While CO2 laser resurfacing is not a cancer treatment, my objective was to mitigate sun damage that may lead to more basal cell carcinoma. When Dr. Chesnut performed my first MOHs surgery...

Hi. I finally went to the well reviewed Dr. Groff in San Diego who will be performing a UPC02 Full Face Laser with an erbium pass around my mouth, lips, and eyes. As far as I have seen his before and afters show the best result. One of my goals is to get a lift to my lip as my lips have sagged... READ MORE

I had the CO2 Laser treatment in both 2014 and 2015 and both times I have been amazed with the results. Why did I do the COs laser? 1. The CO2 laser is the most amazing anti-aging treatment because it can fix all aging signs except dark spots. However, Dr. Kortesis is a wonderful doctor so he... READ MORE

I have been waiting for the perfect time to finally have my fractional laser procedure to correct some of the leftover acne scars and light wrinkles I have obtained surfing as a child without sunscreen.

I went in for a facelift and came back looking 20 years younger thanks to Dr. Madnani. I never heard of CO2 lazer surgery but with my facelift, this was also included. Not only did it take away man of my wrinkles, but lifted my eyes, my facial expression, made my skin very smooth and supple. ... READ MORE

My experience with severe cystic acne is not unique, but I think itโ€™s important to explain. In my first two years of high school, I did not have perfect skin โ€“ a few pimples around the jaw or on the forehead that would slightly flare up during certain times of the month โ€“ but nothing that was o...

I saw the ablative laser done at seminar 20 years ago and have always wanted it. I have had numerous friends do it with no problem. The pain was excrutiating! I only had from below my eyes and around mouth, including chin. A 35% TCA peel was applied to the rest of my face and neck. I also... READ MORE

Always had poor texture from acne but these scars just appeared and are very unappealing. I have had dermapen, subcision & a round of filler, all with very poor results that do not last. Subcision has seemed to make the scars larger. I have other scars here and there but they don't bother me... READ MORE

I had this procedure done yesterday. I will change my "was is worth it" after a week or two. It is too soon to rate it today :-) I will try to update photos and my experience daily. I am 49 years old and did the procedure to reduce/get rid of wrinkles. The procedure was painful but tolerable.... READ MORE

I finally did something about the awful lip lines and loss of lip volume due to 30+ years of smoking. I had the co2 and another laser in January. For some reason it took a very long time for the redness to go away for me. About 2 months. But I would do it again in a second. I had the lip lift... READ MORE

I had a full facelift with neck liposuction. Additionally I had co2 laser resurfacing around my mouth. I'm on my 3rd day post op and my mouth is so swollen I can barely get it open to eat or drink. It is still oozing terrible with no signs of healing. From what I've read it sounds like I had a... READ MORE

Had my appointment scheduled for traditional ablative CO2 resurfacing for entire face. Passed on the less invasive options due to wanting the greatest results and available downtime I have in January. I'm excited! This is my first procedure ever. I will keep everyone posted. Any advice going... READ MORE

As a 57 Causasian seeking work after a layoff, I was pleased with my facelift 4 months ago but wished to address remaining deep wrinkles. I had the eCO2 repair laser procedure 5 days ago and believe it will significantly improve things. It continues to be moderately painful. If you're... READ MORE

I had acne scars for years and recently I've decided to do CO2 laser to reduce the scaring. The doctor did let me know that the scars will not 100% removed but it will reduce the depth of the scars by probably 50%. I took the treatment and it was painful although I had use numbing cream (more... READ MORE

Preop is Sept 29th! Having pixel c02 omnifit used for full face resurfacing. So excited but was told I would require 3 full face treatments to obtain desired results...I guess I will be judge of that. It's 2000.00 for 3 treatments. I am also prescribed tazorac for nightly use. I've done my... READ MORE

I will be having the first of several CO2 laser treatments this Friday with Dr. Travis Shaw of the Stony Point Surgery Center. I've suffered from acne since I was just 8 years old. For years I visited a rather mediocre dermatologist who was unable to diagnose the cause of my problem and as I... READ MORE

Susie was super bubbly and nice and just has absolutely GORGEOUS skin. She made sure I very thoroughly understood the procedure and defined terms like fraxelated and the type of laser she was using (CO2). Great. Just awesome personality and I'm excited for the results to show through! I've... READ MORE

I was not too satisfied with the price I paid for with the procedure to destroying my acne scars. I have done Chemical peels in the past and it was not at all effective. I would have thought that the co2 laser skin resurfacing procedure would do some type of justice to my skin, in the end i... READ MORE
