Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing
Rejuvenate your skin, improve wrinkles, scars and stretch marks and tighten skin
We offer two of the latest fractional CO2 lasers to rejuvenate your skin without surgery. The Syneron CO2RE has a superficial resurfacing mode to remove sun damage and allow quick healing, but this mode does not improve wrinkles. Both lasers have a deep mode that penetrates deeply into the dermis to stimulate collagen production and skin tightening to improve wrinkles. If you want to improve wrinkles then review this list of benefits to decide which laser suits your needs best.

Erbium Laser Resurfacing
If your skin has sun spots or brown spots after acne then this laser combined with topical bleaching creams may improve your complexion. Unfortunately, if your skin is too dark, then the heat of this laser is likely to worsen your complexion. If your skin is dark, the very expensive pico lasers are a better choice but they will not be available at our office until they can be purchased at a reasonable price so the treatment can be offered to you at a reasonable price. The lasers started over $300,000 each but will likely be below $100,000 each by 2019.
