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.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until Mid April.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until further notice.
  • The office will be available for Retail and PrePaid Packages as well as to answer any and all questions and concerns.
  • Virtual Consultations are available upon request.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.

  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
