CO2 laser resurfacing reduces facial wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as blemishes or acne scars. If you have fine lines or wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, or forehead, shallow scars from acne, or non-responsive skin after a facelift, then you may be a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing. This method has been used for years to treat wrinkles, scars, warts, enlarged oil glands on the nose, and other conditions.

CO2 laser resurfacing uses light energy to remove thin layers of skin with minimal heat damage. Recovery takes up to two weeks.
