CO2 Fraxel in Beverly Hills
The demand for nonsurgical cosmetic procedures is growing exponentially due to the convenience of the treatments and the incredible results, which often rival what you could expect from invasive, surgical alternatives. In the case of facial restoration, CO2 Fraxel is one such procedure in high demand due to its nonsurgical approach to treating deep facial wrinkles through minimally invasive means.
CO2 Fraxel is now offered at F.A.C.E. of Beverly Hills by our trusted, board-certified surgeon McCoy Moretz, MD. If you’re in the market for facial rejuvenation without the downtime or inconvenience of surgery, Dr. Mac Moretz welcomes you to review the benefits of CO2 Fraxel when considering options for your next procedure.
What Is CO2 Fraxel?
CO2 Fraxel Laser is one of the newest developments in nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. Patients choose CO2 Fraxel for its ability to treat deep wrinkles and other signs of aging, discoloration, and sun damage. What has patients particularly excited about CO2 Fraxel is its ability to remarkably transform the appearance of the face without the need for invasive surgery.
CO2 Fraxel uses what are known as fractional carbon dioxide lasers. These lasers have the longest wavelength of all lasers, meaning they can be used safely for most skin types, including darker skin. The focused laser beam is precisely targeted towards problem areas of the skin. The goal of the procedure is to stimulate the skin to produce collagen, shed damaged skin cells, and generate new ones while healthy skin is left unaffected.
CO2 Fraxel can treat:
- Deep Wrinkles and Fine Lines
- Drooping Skin (such as around the eyes)
- Uneven or Rough Skin Texture
- Acne Scarring
- Precancerous Growths
- Sun Damage
CO2 Fraxel is adaptable based on the needs of the patient, meaning the laser can be adjusted to treat deeper wrinkles or more severe skin conditions. While this may result in a longer recovery window following the procedure, the recovery time is still considered minimal compared to many surgical alternatives. A CO2 Fraxel Laser procedure may even be combined with procedures involving fillers like Botox to further enhance results.

Results, Downtime, and Side Effects
The results from CO2 Fraxel are long lasting, especially when combined with a healthy lifestyle, including proper diet and exercise. Results are seen immediately after treatment, with the natural restoration of collagen continuing for up to six months.
A topical and local anesthetic is used during the procedure for your comfort. The procedure only takes about an hour, after which you are able to drive yourself home and resume normal activities as needed.
Side effects are minimal, with most patients describing a sensation like a mild sunburn lasting only a few hours after the procedure. The deeper the treatment, the more noticeable this side effect potentially may be. Regardless, there are typically no other side effects and any experienced are usually mild.
Only a doctor can advise you if CO2 Fraxel, available now at our Beverly Hills facial plastic and cosmetic surgery office, is right for you. Contact F.A.C.E. of Beverly Hills today!
