Restore Your Youthful Allure With Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Has aging, excessive sun exposure, or years of acne left your skin with pigmentation, scars, wrinkles, or other blemishes? As we get older, there are a great deal of factors, both outside and genetically, that are responsible for transforming your once youthful look into an older reflection of yourself. With the help of Balikian Facial Plastic Surgery, however, you can reverse these signs of aging and take back your youthful look with laser skin rejuvenation.

Laser skin rejuvenation can help restore your skin’s complexion to a younger, healthier state. Sun damage and normal aging break down collagen on a daily basis. However, it has been proven clinically that those who maintain their skin with laser treatments stimulate their collagen and therefore maintain younger, healthier skin.

At Balikian Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer the most innovative treatments so our patients can experience the best versions of themselves possible. There are various laser-based treatments designed to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin irregularities.

Your treatment options include:

  • CO2RE – Fractionated CO2 Resurfacing
  • Sublative
  • SR (IPL)
  • Sublime
  • Triniti Plus
  • Laser Hair Removal

CO2RE – Fractional CO2

As one of the most advanced Fractionated CO2 resurfacing lasers, the CO2RE laser allows for a fully customizable and individualized treatment. It can effectively treat wrinkles and facial lines, sun-damaged skin, and unsightly age spots.

CO2RE laser is a treatment that uses heat from carbon dioxide to resurface the skin. It is a heat stamp that uses small beams of light to penetrate the skin. These small beams improve the top layer of skin and promote collagen growth in the lower layers of skin. It does all this while sparing some of the skin cells to allow for a faster recovery without the complications of older generation CO2 lasers.

Benefits of fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing include:

  • Can be done in office with topical numbing and minimal pain
  • Can be done in about 30 minutes
  • Short recovery with makeup being worn at 7 days after the procedure

CO2 laser can often be used in combination with a facelift for optimal results. Often wrinkles of the face are deep and stubborn.

Although a properly performed facelift can help smooth some wrinkles out by removing excess skin, it will not eliminate deeper wrinkles. In this situation, Dr. Balikian often recommends a CO2 laser resurfacing at the same time as surgery. Through this heat stamp, the top layer of skin will be resurfaced, and the deeper layers will be contracted. Collagen formation will begin, and the deepest wrinkles will be improved.

Just like refurbishing a damaged piece of furniture with medium sandpaper, the overall result will look better, but the deepest dings will remain to some extent.

Sublative Laser Treatment

The Sublative Laser Treatment is designed to improve the texture of all skin types. It is commonly used to help stimulate the production of collagen, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and acne scars, and improves superficial imperfections of the skin’s texture.


Intense pulsed light (IPL) is expertly designed to improve the skin’s clarity by treating pigmentation and vascular problems. It is used to fade spider veins and brown spots, improves uneven skin tones and complexion, and even helps to stimulate collagen production. This cosmetic treatment can produce excellent results that improve over the course of time as the body’s production of collagen increases.


The Sublime laser treatment provides skin contouring to help restore the youthful contours of your facial region. Patients undergo this treatment to target areas of the skin that sag, including the jawline, nasolabial folds, chin, and brow lines. It can also help boost collagen production, helping your skin to become smoother and tighter.

Triniti Plus

The Triniti Plus laser utilizes an innovative 3-in-1 multi-applicator designed to provide a comprehensive improvement to the desired treatment area. Not only does it provide excellent color correction, but it can also assist in recontouring one’s facial structure while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.


Laser Hair Removal is one of the most popular methods of excessive hair reduction. The treatment is safe, gentle, and highly effective. It can help remove unwanted body hair on most areas of the body and can be used to treat many skin types. You can finally say goodbye to those razors and painful waxing sessions and hello to smooth, hair-free skin.
