Laser Skin Resurfacing: Fractional C02 Treatment
Do you suffer from dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles, sun-damaged skin or facial scars? At the Calabasas Dermatology Center, we offer state-of-the-art anti-aging treatments to smooth and resurface aging or damaged skin.
Fractional C02 Laser treatments are effective in treating the signs of aging, sun exposure, and the impact of environmental pollutants.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
During laser skin resurfacing, powerful laser energy is used to remove the outer damaged layers of skin, revealing a blemish-free, radiant complexion beneath. The treatment is an excellent solution for a wide array of cosmetic concerns, including acne scarring, lines and wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and enlarged pores. In addition to removing superficial imperfections, laser skin resurfacing can jumpstart the regeneration of collagen and elastin, key proteins responsible for the skin’s youthful suppleness, radiance, and resilience. Thus laser skin resurfacing works both internally and externally to achieve a more youthful, supported skin structure and a rejuvenated appearance.
Your Private Consultation
Your initial consultation with Dr. Hal Weitzbuch, a board-certified dermatologist with superior credentials, is a time for you and the doctor to get to know each other and build rapport. Dr. Weitzbuch will listen to your concerns and create a personalized treatment plan for achieving your cosmetic goals. He will analyze your skin, review your medical history, and assess whether laser skin resurfacing in Westlake Village is an ideal match for your needs.
Advanced Skin Resurfacing Treatments at Calabasas Dermatology Center
Dr. Weitzbuch is committed to providing his clients with the most advanced, effective treatments, including the latest generation in skin resurfacing technology in the Lumenis UltraPulse.

What Occurs During the Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure?
The CO2 laser resurfacing procedure involves treating skin damage with focused light energy, broken into tiny shafts of light to effectively penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. As this is a fractionated treatment, only these tiny columns of laser energy are used, leaving normal unaffected skin nearby to help make recovery faster. The skin responds by shedding the damaged skin and replacing it with fresh, new skin. The heat of the system has the added benefit of shrinking the collagen fibers to tighten and firm the skin. Our Thousand Oaks laser skin resurfacing stimulates the body to produce more collagen, leading to smoother, healthier skin after the treated area has healed.
The Latest Generation of Laser Skin Resurfacing Systems: Lumenis UltraPulse
Aesthetic technology is advancing in leaps and bounds, and patients can achieve dramatic improvements in skin quality, suppleness, and firmness – without surgery. As this system can penetrate the skin more deeply and offers a flexible depth feature, a wider range of skin problems can be effectively treated. Deeper, thicker lesions can be treated, as well as wrinkles, acne scars, pigmentation issues, and facial flaws that originate deeper under this skin.
With the Lumenis UltraPulse CO2 fractional laser, skin resurfacing typically requires one to two hours to complete. After your treatment is over, it is critical that you avoid direct sun for the first week and keep exposure very limited during the following month.
Advanced Facial Rejuvenation: UltraPulse C02
At Calabasas Dermatology Center, our advanced skin resurfacing system is the most powerful laser in aesthetic medicine and considered the gold standard. The versatility of the system makes it possible to treat a wide range of skin issues, from wrinkles to visible scars. These lasers have been developed for providers who have been specifically trained in the system. Never allow a skin treatment to be performed by anyone other than a highly-respected medical professional with a great breadth of knowledge of skin structure. Our goal is to help you restore a fresh, youthful look, free from distracting appearance of unsightly scars, creases, wrinkles, or pigmentation problems.
Skin Regeneration: Natural Collagen Growth
Fractional C02 Laser treatments are the effective way to resolve some of the most serious skin problems. The added benefit of the procedure is that it triggers the natural regenerative process. Nothing is more effective than collagen for a firmer, tighter, more youthful look. Once the skin flaws are addressed and the targeted skin cells vaporized, new, fresh, youthful skin is revealed, with the existing collagen fibers tightened in the procedure. As the treatment is “Fractionated”, normal skin is left surrounding every treated area of skin to reduce side effects and speed-up healing.
