CO2 laser treatment is performed right here in our office. We do provide medications that need to be used prior to the procedure and after the procedure. Anesthetics are given before the procedure begins. Your doctor will discuss the different options of anesthetic available in your case.
Following the treatment, it may feel as if you have gotten a bad sunburn for about one to two days. It is critical to follow all of the post-treatment instructions you are provided, including any pain medications that your doctor prescribes.

In the majority of cases, only one CO2 laser treatment in Los Angeles, CA is needed. There are some situations where your doctor may recommend more than one procedure in order to obtain the best results. Clients may also need periodic maintenance treatments in order to keep the results obtained with the treatment. This is often determined based on how well the client takes care of their skin and avoids the sun in the years following the procedure. There are some areas, however, where the skin is more delicate and even with proper care may need another CO2 laser treatment within a couple of years after the initial treatment, such as the skin around the eyes.
The optimum results will not be noticeable immediately following the procedure. Over the next six months, the skin will continue to improve – as long as the client avoids the sun and engages in proper skincare routines.
