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 ›

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 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. I was told 3 weeks would be initial results and 6 months for full, can't wait! I wanted lip and fat injections with the procedure but the doctor thinks when... READ MORE

I have had brown aging spots on my face for about 15 years. I'm 69. Over the past few years they are getting larger and there are more of them. Used lots of concealer under foundation but they still bled through. Most people I talked with about it said they didn't even notice, but it... READ MORE

I got the CO2 laser (cortex) done today, i got levulan with vbeam done prior to this like a month ago since i still deal with acne. The procedure started with arriving an hour early to get numbing cream. Then the laser, i was really nervous because all other reviews and places i read that they... READ MORE

After interviewing 4 well known Newport Beach plastic surgeons, I stumbled upon Dr. Timothy Miller. It sounds cliche, but instantly, I knew he was the one. With his impressive credentials and down to earth caring personality, it was an easy choice. He actually listened to me and my concerns not... READ MORE

I did a co2 laser "Madonna" eye lift in February 2013. I sought to minimize dark under eye circles primarily. Treatment was mildly uncomfortable but resulted in horrible burns and scabbing that lasted more than 2 weeks. I was unrecognizable. It's been 2 years and there's still significant... READ MORE

At 54 1/2, I was looking a bit tired, with sun spots, looser skin and under-eye wrinkles. I heard about the CO2 laser and Dr. Barrera was recommended to me. I am extremely pleased with the outcome. I like the fact that the procedure was done in the hospital - it felt very safe and professional... READ MORE

I recently had Co2 laser resurfacing with Dr. Mark Karolak in Little Falls, NJ. I'm 47 and against all good advice I am a sun girl. I have had laser before and I knew what I was in for. Dr. Karolak was very conscientious . After initially speaking with the Lifestyle Lift staff and Dr. Karolak,... READ MORE
