Facelift and Necklift Surgeon in Santa Monica

Fractional CO2 Skin Resurfacing

One of the most commonly experienced problems with facelifts is the lack of attention placed onto the skin before and after surgery. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian has lectured on the topic and has labelled the problem as 'facelift skin discordance,' in which a surgeon places great emphasis on the surgical treatment of the excess skin but fails to address deep wrinkling of the face that is not removed during a facelift procedure. At Kare Plastic Surgery + Skin Health Center in Santa Monica, we have developed skin resurfacing protocols that can improve the results of a facelift. By tightening and improving the skin of the face, facelift results are improved and wrinkles are decreased. 

Our office utilizes the DEKA Smartxide Fractional CO2 laser to resurface the skin. Dr. Karamanoukian can titrate the depth of laser penetration so that teh dermis is tightened and deep wrinkles are eliminated. Combined with facelift scar revision, fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing can dramatically improve your skin complexion and tighten your face and neck.
