Laser Skin Resurfacing (CO2)
in Beverly Hills

Treat blotches, wrinkles and fine lines, and scars

What is laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing removes layers of skin so that the skin comes back looking tighter, younger, and healthier. It can be an effective treatment for blotches, wrinkles and fine lines, and scars. Laser skin resurfacing is usually done by a plastic surgeon or other skin specialist, and can be done as a stand-alone treatment or during a surgery. Laser skin resurfacing can be performed on specific parts of the face in about 30-45 minutes, or over the entire face in up to two hours.

FAQs for a laser skin resurfacing in Beverly Hills

How long does it take to recover from laser skin resurfacing?

Recovery after laser skin resurfacing depends on the amount of energy applied with the CO2 laser. Laser skin resurfacing can be performed with lighter energy over several treatments, which will decrease recovery time to a few days. A more aggressive laser skin resurfacing treatment would be done in the operating room under sedation to more aggressively resurface the skin. This type of deep treatment often results in 1-2 weeks of crusting, bruising, swelling, and/or redness. No matter the strength of your treatment, is important to avoid sun exposure and harsh chemicals following the treatment.

Is laser skin resurfacing worth it?

Yes, laser skin resurfacing can truly improve the appearance of your skin.

Which is better - a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing?

A chemical peel and laser resurfacing can both be great options. The best option for you depends on your goals and skin type, as well as your tolerance for downtime. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Truesdale to get his expert opinion on the best option for you.
