Lasers have been used as a substitute for chemical peels to strip the top layer of skin and reduce wrinkles. I have never seen the advantage in substituting an inexpensive option (peels) in replacement of this treatment. I have also never been comfortable with the side-effects seen in terms of trading wrinkles for white/waxy looking skin. Our matrix laser is a tried and true technique! The laser makes small holes in the skin, which stimulates the deep layers of the skin – similar to the technique of aerating your lawn. The results are natural and healthy looking and can be recommended to people of all ages or skin types who want to improve their complexion (both color and wrinkles) without the risks of unnatural looking results and excessive downtime. New skin is better looking and healthier than the old skin!
This patient has very difficult lower eyelid swelling, which caused recurrent under eye bags. Fractional CO2 laser treatment helped thicken her lower eyelid skin resulting a more smooth contour of her lid cheek junction.
This patient underwent minor skin excision and fractional CO2 laser skin treatment. This skin treatment increases circulation and literally makes skin younger and healthier as a result of the increased circulation.
