Can patients in the Bay Area, CA use CO2 lasers for facial wrinkles?

Can patients use CO2 lasers for facial wrinkles

After the age of 30, our face begins to lose collagen. This results in sagging skin and the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in the Bay Area, CA has a number of amazing cosmetic treatments available to patients for battling the signs of aging, including:

  • Ultherapy skin tightening procedures
  • IPL
  • Dermal fillers
  • Neuromodulators
  • CO2 fractional laser resurfacing

For most patients, procedures such as injectables can be used to make a dramatic improvement in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox and Dysport are neuromodulators that can address forehead folds, wrinkles between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet, while dermal fillers such as Juvéderm can be used for immediate improvement in the lines around the nose and mouth. However, some patients who have deeper, more significant lines and wrinkles and want a longer-lasting solution may be better suited for CO2 lasers for facial wrinkles.

Dr. Christine Lee has a wide range of laser devices and treatments to allow her patients to turn back the hands of time and resurfacing their skin. Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a wonderful method of rejuvenation that can reduce the depth and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles using the latest technologies. This treatment is done during just one session at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute and can provide months, even years of improvement. Additionally, patients can use these treatments in-between other solutions such as IPL, Ultherapy, and injectables for optimum results.

Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is safe and effective. It offers patients an affordable solution to aging and allows them to treat other concerns such as uneven skin tone, scarring, and sun damage. This versatile solution does require some downtime and recovery, but the results are amazing!

Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute is excited to provide a myriad of skin rejuvenation methods to patients in and around the Bay Area, CA.
