Fractional Laser Resurfacing Newport Beach

Fractional CO2 laser treatments are a common procedure for Newport Beach cosmetic surgeon Dr. Sundine.

The Fractional CO2 laser is a skin rejuvenation laser that make it possible for you to have healthy, younger looking skin with minimal post treatment down time. A single treatment can show significant improvement in skin texture and color while softening wrinkles.

How Fractional Co2 laser treatment work

The laser delivers a therapeutic matrix of tiny beams of light energy to the topa and mid layers of the skin with minimal discomfort.

This results in:

  • Immediate shrinkage of damaged skin
  • Softening of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Removal of age and sun spots
  • New collagen production for up to six months following treatment

Fractional means that only a fraction of the skin surface is exposed to the laser beam, leaving untreated akin around each treated micro spot. This promotes fast natural healing and a short recovery time. The beneficial effects of the laser beam expands under the skin surface to stimulate new collagen production across the entire area.

Planning for your laser treatment

Please call the office to schedule your complimentary initial consultation with Dr. Sundine: 949 706 3100

Prior to your treatment: Dr. Sundine will discuss which areas of your skin will benefit from the Fractional CO2 Laser treatments as well as the results you can expect. In most cases, laser treatments can be safely performed on the face, neck, chest and hands. Usually, a single treatment produces satisfying results. If desired, additional treatments can be scheduled 8 weeks after the first.

The Treatment

The treatment is done in the comfort of Dr. Sundines’ office. The areas to be treated are thoroughly washed and the skin is dried prior to treatment. Although most patients do not require a topical anesthetic, Dr. Sundine will determine what is best for you and your treatment. During treatment you will feel a warm sensation on the skin. This is to be expected. Treatment time for a full face is approximately 30 minutes.

Post Treatment

You will have a slight burning sensation similar to sunburn, which lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours. Your skin will show a fine pinpoint like pattern as a result of the therapeutic beams.

Day 1-2:

The fine pinpoint pattern will begin to disappear and the skin will have a tanned look. At this stage, makeup can be applies. Most patients return to their normal daily routine.

Day 3-4

The top layer of skin will begin to peel during normal washing, revealing new rejuvenated skin with improved color and texture.

Day 5-6

The peel will be complete in most cases. Avoid prolonged sun exposure for at least 3 months. Apply a moisturizing SPF 30 sun block every day.

You will see continued reduction of fine lines and wrinkles over the next 6 months as new collagen is produced.

Dr. Sundine will discuss with you other skin care protocols that best suit your needs.

    “GREAT PLASTIC SURGEON. I’M GLAD HE DID MY SURGERIES.”

    Excellent. I found Dr. Sundine to be a very competent surgeon and a really good person. His personal manner made a sometimes difficult, time-consuming process (tissue expansion) much easier. I’m glad we pursued the expansion option and I was fortunate to have had him as my surgeon. I recommend Dr. Sundine to anyone who is in need of Plastic / Reconstructive Surgery.

    “He truly deserved the highest reviews on every level”

    I gave Dr. Sundine the highest possible review in each category because he truly deserved the highest reviews on every level. I am a very well recognized lawyer on the West Coast. My firm has spent millions of dollars on television advertising in which I appear. I could not afford to have a bad face lift or even for people to notice I had a face lift at all. I interviewed many physicians including some of the “celebrity” physicians. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Sundine because he performs highly complex complete facial reconstruction procedures on children.

    “Special thank you to Dr. Sundine! So happy!!”

    My keloid surgery was an absolute success. I am so pleased with the results and grateful to the staff pre & post surgery. I was so nervous and scared to precede w/ the procedure. For I never had a surgery or general anesthesia before.:(

    Dr. Sundine with his exceeding professionalism gave me gentle kind assurance that all will be fine. In addition, educated me to his full knowledge and experience in detail what to expect. I felt safe and secure in his hands. Very kind soul. Post surgery I had radiation at another location, and it was a success. I am still in the healing process and my ear aesthetically looks next to perfect. I’m free of the disfigurement and I have a renewed confidence keloid Free!! :-)

    It was like 1 2 3!!

    Thank you Dr. Sundine, the friendly staff/ nurses You ALL Rock!! & I couldn’t ask for any better.:)

    I chose Dr. Sundine because he is an expert in a highly regarded surgical technique that delivers a completely natural result. It takes longer on the operating table and it requires specialized training which many doctors just don’t want to invest in. The results, however, are nothing short of spectacular.
