Full Face CO2*

Procedure Details

This 55 year-old female was interested in rejuvenating the appearance of her face. In particular, she wished to soften the lines and wrinkles and improve the dark spots and skin discoloration from aging and sun damage. The patient was not ready for a facelift, but wanted more dramatic and longer lasting results than she was getting with fillers and Botox alone. The patient is very happy, stating that the results are "fabulous" and "fantastic." Laser skin resurfacing is an advanced skin rejuvenation treatment that uses laser beams of focused light localized to target trouble areas on the face. When a laser light hits its target, energy is released often in the form of heat to erase out the specific intended target without harming the surrounding tissues. It treats sun damage by stripping injured skin layer-by-layer with controlled precision.

CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

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 55 year-old, do not want to undergo facelift surgery and are happy with the results of CO2 laser resurfacing. Dr. Kridel is one of a few surgeons in Texas that perform CO2 laser resurfacing successfully.
