Cosmetic Dermatology


To help patients who are struggling with deep scars, hyperpigmentation and severe wrinkles, California Skin Institute providers may suggest treatments with the CO2 laser.1 This ablative laser was created to deliver powerful outcomes when used by our expert providers.

One of the great benefits of the CO2 laser is the versatility it provides during treatment.

For example, your California Skin Institute provider can use a variety of settings to disperse the laser beam bursts across the treatment area. This can be very helpful for reducing downtime after treatment so that you can recover faster.

Additionally, the CO2 laser can be calibrated to different levels of energy bursts, which allows your provider to fine-tune the treatment to your specific needs. California Skin Institute providers can use this laser to treat issues like:1

• Dark spots on the face, neck, hands, and other parts of the body
• Acne scars
• Scars from injury
• Wrinkles
• Rough skin texture
