This 57-year-old Caucasian female had noticed brown spots on her face, neck, and chest and was looking to improve the overall texture and appearance of her skin.
As we get older our face shows signs of aging, such as sagging and jowls. Also, our skin ages due to sun damage over time. Full face CO2 laser is a non-surgical procedure that resurfaces your skin and can remove fine wrinkles, even around the mouth, as well as rejuvenate the skin so that it is smooth and without spots, like this patient. CO2 will tighten the skin some as well, but only a facelift can truly get rid of excess skin in the mid to lower face and neck area. Some patients, such as this 57 year old, do not want to undergo facelift surgery and are happy with the results of CO2 laser resurfacing.
