Dr Douglas Stevens Laser Resurfacing

Laser ResurfacingFractional CO2 laser is used to restore the youthful appearance to the skin. Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is a precise and effective way to tighten the skin of the face, reduce sun spots or freckles and reduce or even eliminate wrinkles. Healing is related to the depth of treatment. For deep lines around the mouth a deeper treatment is performed with one week of downtime and 4-6 weeks of pinkness to the skin. One can return to work or play typically after one week. For younger patients who just need a little tightening and freshening of the skin, the laser can be tuned to yield the result they need but with a very short or no recovery time. Dr. Stevens has used the laser to treat the lower eyelid skin resulting in enough tightening to be able to avoid surgery! Often the fractional CO2 laser is used in conjunction with facelift or other surgical procedures. It can also be used in the office under local anesthesia.
