The fractioned technology now makes it possible to perform treatment on the face and neck in total safety. Skin Resurfacing treatments restore tone and glow to your face through the formation of a completely new skin layer.
You can now reduce the furrows of deep wrinkles and eliminate the shallower ones. With the correct stimulation, the derma can produce new cells and collagen, giving your skin a smoother, younger appearance.
Dr. Kim can permanently resolve even the most complex situations, such as scars, superficial pigmentation and deep wrinkles. After identifying the correct treatment for your skin, Dr. Kim can remove any type of imperfection, at the same time protecting the skin, avoiding scalpel-related side effects and reducing recovery time.

CO2 Fractional Laser FAQs
Is CO2 Laser skin resurfacing safe?
DOT Therapy is approved by the FDA. This treatment is safer than traditional laser resurfacing treatments because it is performed without anesthesia. The doctor has complete control to customize treatment throughout the session to achieve the best possible results. The fractional laser system leaves healthy skin around each ‘dot’ to promote faster healing and improved complexion.
Will laser skin resurfacing hurt?
You may experience some mild discomfort during treatment. Dr. Kim will provide a topical anesthetic to the skin to reduce pain during treatment. After treatment, your skin will be red and feel similar to a sunburn. A cold compress will be applied to relieve discomfort, minimize swelling and reduce redness.
What precautions should I take after treatment?
Dr. Kim can help to outline an at home skin care regimen that will protect your skin and keep the results of your CO2 laser skin rejuvenation procedure long lasting. Basic cleaning and sun protection are essential to maintaining healthy skin. As your skin heals it will be very delicate and sensitive, Dr. Kim will recommend that you avoid sun exposure for several weeks following treatment.
