Dr. Berkley Skin + Body Medspa in Los Angeles Now Offers CO₂ Laser Skin Treatments!

The CO laser skin resurfacing system is universally suited for fractional and ablative treatments. The unique scanning technology of the CO laser provides significant results in fractional laser therapy. A cold air cooling attached directly to the scanner improves patient comfort during the treatment.

The CO laser skin resurfacing system allows for quick and easy fractional treatments. The size and shape of the treated area can be customized by the N.P. So the treatment area always fits perfect without overlapping. This makes the treatment of large or complex areas very easy. Spot density, pulse width and energy are flexibly adjustable to the individual findings.

To drastically improve patient comfort, a cold air cooling system is attached directly to the scanner. With the addition of this device the risk of side-effects are reduced, and even darker skin types can be treated gently and safely.

In clinical studies of the CO2 skin resurfacing treatments published in February 2009 by Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, it was shown that in more than 32 patients undergoing treatment for wrinkles and pigment a greater than 50% improvement was noticed in nearly all the patients. In our clinical experience of skin tightening in Los Angeles, results vary from patient to patient, with some patients having their wrinkles completely removed while others have had significant smoothing of the wrinkles.

Q: How do CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatments work?
A: With facial resurfacing, a high-energy beam of CO2, light is used to remove/reduce fine lines, wrinkles, scars, dark spots and other skin lesions by removing the skin layer by layer. This process also utilizes intense thermal stimulation to increase the underlying collagen to develop, increasing elasticity and providing support for the skin.

Q: Can CO2 laser skin resurfacing technology be used less invasively for treating milder indications?
A: With our CO2 laser technology, skin rejuvenation is so precise that you can customize each treatment in accordance with the condition and extent of skin damage, and skin type.

Q: What results can I expect?
A: CO2 treatments will restore a patient’s skin to a healthy state, almost as if the skin that has not experienced sun damage or scarring.

The CO2 laser can also be used on the neck, chest and hands for the removal of sun damage and even age spots. CO2 lasers work very well for acne scars as well. The number of treatments required can vary depending upon the severity of acne scars, skin color, downtime etc.
