Hailed as the number 1 anti-aging breakthrough in recent years, the Fractional CO2 laser represents the very best in laser skin resurfacing. It delivers powerful results without the harsh side effects that typically come with laser resurfacing procedures. Because of this, patients experience less downtime, less discomfort, and more rapid results. At the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, we are proud to offer laser skin resurfacing with the Fractional CO2 laser in our Beverly Hills office. Now each of our patients can take advantage of this groundbreaking procedure. To learn more, please read below or call our office to ask any questions you like.

What is Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing?

In general, laser resurfacing is a method of reducing wrinkles, scars and blemishes. By using a laser to remove the outermost surface of the skin, laser resurfacing offers the skin a chance to regrow into a glowing, unblemished surface. Laser resurfacing also stimulates collagen growth underneath the skin. With increased collagen, wrinkles are filled in, reducing or eliminating their appearance.

With previous methods of laser resurfacing, the surface of the skin would take a beating. There were complications that could persist over time. Despite this, the basic process did get good results—it was just a matter of producing a better device that’s not so hard on the skin.

That’s now been done with the Fractional CO2 laser.

The Fractional CO2 laser offers all the advantages of laser skin resurfacing with drastically reduced disadvantages. Because one purpose of laser skin resurfacing is regrowth of the outer layers of skin, patients should still expect some redness and a recovery period while the skin heals. However, this is dramatically reduced from previous procedures, and patients are much more comfortable following the procedure. Additionally, because the Fractional CO2 laser is not as rough on the skin, the recovery time is significantly shorter with faster results.

Treatment uses for the Fractional CO2 laser

The Fractional CO2 laser is extremely diverse. At the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, we use it to treat a broad variety of skin conditions, including:

  • Fine lines or wrinkles throughout the face, such as around the eyes, mouth or forehead
  • Acne scars
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Aging skin
  • Liver spots
  • Discolored complexion
  • Warts
  • Birthmarks
  • Enlarged oil glands
  • Skin resurfacing on other visible parts of the body, such as the hands

It was definitely time to get some help with my face. It wasn’t even that awful, but I had enough attention on my appearance that it was distracting. When I came to see Dianne, she was as helpful as could be. There was no pressure, no sales pitch, just information. I learned so much about fractional lasers that I felt I could practically deliver the procedure myself! In the end, I’m glad I took the plunge. My skin looks great and feels even better. Lasky is definitely the place to go if you’re looking for fractional laser resurfacing in Los Angeles.

Patient Testimonial

The Lasky approach to Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing

As with every procedure we deliver, your Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing begins with a consultation. During this time, your provider will find out everything she needs to know to understand your reason for treatment and what you’re looking to accomplish. By taking this step, your practitioner can share your goals and make them her own.

During this initial consultation, you are encouraged to ask any questions you like so as to become fully educated about your fractional laser resurfacing procedure. We find the best results are delivered to motivated, proactive patients, and that’s something we look to achieve during your consultation.

Once your appointment for treatment is made, you and your practitioner will begin a series of preparatory skin treatments. These usually begin six weeks prior to treatment. During this period, you will work closely with your practitioner to ensure that everything is going to plan, and that your skin is properly prepared to receive the laser treatment.

Right before your procedure in Beverly Hills, your practitioner will use local anesthetic on the area to be treated. Laser skin resurfacing can be slightly painful, so the local anesthetic is to help you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. If you have any preference regarding this aspect of treatment, it will be thoroughly reviewed prior to the procedure, and your preference will be taken into account.

Next, your face will be thoroughly cleansed, and you will be given protective eyewear.

During the laser skin resurfacing procedure, your practitioner applies the Fractional CO2 laser to the applicable treatment area. The ablative laser works to vaporize surface blemishes and damaged skin cells. It concurrently heats the underlying collagen layer, causing it to expand to bring more volume and life to your skin. It does all this while causing minimal damage to healthy skin cells.

Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing takes anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours.

Recovery

The recovery period after Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is almost as important as the treatment itself. After all, the healing process is why the treatment exists in the first place. For this reason, it is important that you follow all guidelines set forth by your practitioner. They are intended to not only make your recovery as comfortable as possible, but also to ensure that the best possible results are gotten from your procedure.

With Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing, the recovery period is typically no longer than 2 weeks. During that period, your skin will look red, and there will be flakes coming off.

This is part of the natural healing process, and it ultimately means your skin will have a much-improved appearance at the end.

If you ever have questions or concerns that arise, please give our office a call. At the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, our relationship with our patients continues long after the procedure is over. Our entire goal is to see your treatment through to full recovery, ensuring that we provide the best results from a Fractional CO2 laser Beverly Hills and Los Angeles have to offer.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
