This new technique provides fractionated laser ablation (dot laser) which results in a total resurfacing of the skin but with less downtime than the old type of CO2 laser. With the old type, you were “down” 6 weeks. With the Dot laser, downtime is around a week. It can markedly decrease pigmentations, wrinkles and fine lines that you get as your age. It also smooths the skin, brightens the skin, and stimulates collagen formation to help you look years younger. If you want to set the clock back 5 to 10 years, this could be the treatment for you.
How can I improve my acne?
Treating acne is a multiple therapy process. Acne is formed because of multiple changes that occur on the face, and just one therapy is usually not enough. Killing the bacteria that cause the inflammation is part of this process. One method that seems to help tremendously is Acne Photo facials, exfoliative procedures and home skin care products that can be prescribed for you. If you have acne scars, the best therapy is CO2 Laser Resurfacing.
How do I fill the creases along the sides of my mouth?
Facial fillers such as Juvaderm, Voluma and Restylane are more useful for the lower face. Deep creases around your mouth can virtually disappear while the wrinkles over your lips are reduced leaving behind smoother looking skin and fuller looking lips. They can also enhance the beauty of your lips to give your more sensual lips. Dr. True utilizes local anesthetic to numb the area while he sculptures and fills these coarse lines on your face. By flattening out these coarse lines, these facial features flatten, giving your face that more youthful appearance you desire.

Several peels are necessary, several weeks apart, to achieve the best results. Then maintenance peels may be performed as needed in the future.
