Light technology allows us to harness the power of skin-safe lasers to treat a large number of skin issues. One such example is CO2 laser resurfacing, also known as a “laser peel.”
Because lasers are ideal for delicate skin areas, we can treat various surfaces around the face, including the eyes.
During a laser resurfacing treatment, the CO2 applicator uses short and concentrated light beams in a precise way to address area specific skin problems such as:
- Reducing acne scarring and large pores
- Smoothing wrinkles and fine lines
- Lightening and toning dark spots and skin damaged areas
- Reducing the appearance of birthmarks
…it can also be used to remove warts and some types of pre-cancerous skin growths.
At the same time, your skin responds in a way that triggers new collagen formation — making skin smoother and firmer to the touch.
Laser Peels in Beverly Hills
The Aesthetic Institute offers a variety of skin peels in addition to our CO2 laser peel treatments. After you’ve had a consultation with Dr. Kami Parsa, we’ll decide which one is best for you and the precise needs of your skin.
After your treatment, you may notice a pink color to your skin that can last 10-14 days after the application. Fortunately, it’s mild enough that it can easily be covered with normal cosmetic products! We encourage our patients to go about their normal activities and treat the area almost as if they’ve had a mild sunburn.
Laser skin resurfacing is a great way to prime your face for new skincare products or wrinkle treatments. Book a consultation at The Aesthetic Institute today to get started!
