CO2 Laser Resurfacing

What is CO2 laser resurfacing?

At Desired Beauty, CO2 laser resurfacing is performed using the Fraxel® laser system. This innovative laser tool creates thousands of microscopic “wounds” in the treatment area, which triggers your skin’s natural healing process and stimulates collagen growth and the regeneration of new cells. Dr. Kerendian uses the innovative laser to treat many skin concerns and rejuvenate your look. 

The Fraxel laser system provides all the benefits of laser resurfacing treatments without damaging the surface of your skin or requiring a lengthy recovery. 

Am I a good candidate for CO2 laser resurfacing?

Dr. Kerendian is an expert cosmetic surgeon and determines if you’re a good candidate for CO2 laser resurfacing during your consultation. He offers many surgical and nonsurgical options to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. 

He may consider you a good candidate for the CO2 laser resurfacing treatment if you’re struggling with:

  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmentation disorders
  • Surgical scars
  • Liver spots
  • Birthmarks
  • Warts
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks

Even if you have no blemishes at all, you may benefit from the cosmetic treatment to restore your skin’s natural beauty. 

What can I expect during CO2 laser resurfacing?

Dr. Kerendian performs your CO2 laser resurfacing at the office. You may feel a prickling sensation during your treatment. Though most people tolerate CO2 laser surfacing well, if you’re sensitive to pain, be sure to let Dr. Kerendian know during your consultation so he can adjust your treatment plan to minimize your discomfort. 

You may experience some redness and swelling after your CO2 laser resurfacing, but these side effects should disappear within 24 hours. 

How many CO2 laser resurfacing treatments will I need?

Though you may notice brighter, softer skin within several days following your CO2 laser resurfacing, Dr. Kerendian may suggest a series of treatments to get the best results. The number of treatments you need depends on your skin needs and aesthetic goals. In general, you may need 3-5 CO2 laser resurfacing treatments set at 2-4-week intervals.

Dr. Kerendian reviews the specifics of your treatment plan during your consultation, so you know what to expect and how to prepare.
