Can fractional CO2 laser be used after Restylane or Juvederm injections? - Santa Monica Plastic Surgery - Raffy Karamanoukian, MD.

Fractional CO2 provides effective treatment for laser skin resurfacing.  It is a natural adjunct for cosmetic facial rejuvenation and can be used after Restylane or Juvederm injections.  Restylane and Juvederm are temporary facial fillers that work to augment the facial volume on the lips, cheeks, and under eyes.  The fractional CO2 laser is an outstanding treatment for fine lines and moderate wrinkles on the face and can resurface the skin to restore a more youthful complexion and skin tone to the skin.  Many Asians request fractional CO2 laser in our Santa Monica plastic surgery practice, in conjunction with Restylane or Juvederm injections.  In most cases the Restylane and Juvederm injection can be used before or after fractional CO2, but Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian recommends that facial fillers be staged with fractional CO2 laser.  In this capacity, the patients will undergo fractional CO2 laser resurfacing followed by Restylane or Juvederm facial injection.  Please call our office to schedule a comprehensive consultation for facial rejuvenation or cosmetic plastic surgery in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is available for consultation by calling 310 998-5533.
