Don’t let the mention of a gas make you think carbon dioxide lasers aren’t powerful. Used for dermal resurfacing, this type of laser removes outer layers of skin to reduce the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. LEARN 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

I have suffered from acne like many of us here since i was 8 year old. I thought that the scar will fade with time, unfortunately, my acne was pretty severe so the scarring remains. I did some research and decided to tried on CO2 laser. In the past, i have tried chemical peels, salicylic peels... READ MORE

I recently had CO2 laser under my eyes by Dr. Butterwick. The experience was very comfortable from start to finish, and I've had great results so far.

I had two Matrix CO2 laser procedures done -April 2014 and June 2014. The second was deeper targeting my deep scars. While it took nearly a year to fully heal (my skin was rough for 10 months) it was worth it. My acne scars' depths have improved by about 50% - 1st one yielded 15% improvement... READ MORE

I had CO2 fractional done almost a month ago by Dr. Gladstone at this clinic. The treatment covered my face, neck, and part of my chest. My main concerns were a poikiloderma on my neck and a large melasma spot on my forehead. I also have an ugly, old, 'foreign-made' splenectomy scar on my... READ MORE

It's tough to watch yourself slowly age. I became obsessed with wanting surgery. I interviewed many surgeons and was instantly drawn to Dr. Tzikas. He is incredibly warm, compassionate, gentle and informative. His hands are golden and gentle, and the work is so subtle. I didn't want to look... READ MORE

For several years I've wanted to improve my under eye area. I first noticed pronounced hollowing under eyes around 2010. After much reading on this site and on the advice of friends who've had filler under eyes, I decided to try it. I went to a very reputable oculoplastic surgeon here in... READ MORE

Honestly this procedure produces so much stress if your anyone who does extensive research like me and it's a drug out experience with a lot of down time sitting in the house wondering if you'll be okay because the risks are so high with this procedure. I will say my acne scars that were the... READ MORE

First off, I just want to start off by saying I've suffered from severe acne for probably 8-9 years until I finally went on Accutane and it helped tremendously. My breakouts after were only around my TOM and usually only one small pimple, so it was definitely a night and day difference. My... READ MORE

. I too had co2 laser (not fract) under my eyes and this weekend, i'm 6,5 weeks out and I look like *'#%*.. :( I have massive redness and now hyper pigmentation and I'm scared that I will never look normal again. I try to cover it up during the day, but I can't hide it and after a few... READ MORE

I met Dr. Barrera a few months ago and found him to be a kind, most knowledgeable and talented surgeon. I am looking forward to the procedure and confident in putting myself into his care. Furthermore I found his staff helpful and friendly as well as most competent in explaining the cost and... READ MORE

My neck has always been older than my face. I've tried every dermatologist recommended cream, ultherapy, matrix rf, fotofacial (the latter two helped the most I think ) until finally, after extensive research I decided to bite the bullet, suffer the downtime and skip onto the CO2 fractional...

In an effort to delay a very expensive lower face lift, I decided at my doctor's suggestion to do the CO2 laser and a tiny bit of neck lipo. It takes the laser months before you see all the effects, but so far so good. I am really hoping that I continue to lose this awful turkey neck appearance... READ MORE

I am only 2 weeks out almost and am so excited! Face has totally peeled and is only 12 days old and I put makeup on and was amazed.
