Skin Resurfacing in Los Angeles, CA
When you’re ready to remove the dead, damaged skin and build newer, healthier skin, a Skin Resurfacing treatment is what you’re looking for. At Curated Beauty Rx, we offer Opus Fractionated Plasma resurfacing, CO2 resurfacing, and laser facials to improve the texture and tone of your skin. These three ablative skin resurfacing procedures use laser technology to improve skin tone, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, turn over sun-damaged skin, minimize pores, improve scars, and improve stretch marks. We will work with you to create a beauty treatment plan that includes skin resurfacing to wipe the years away.
Intense Light Beams
Skin Resurfacing, or ablative laser resurfacing, is where a laser (an intense beam of light energy) is deployed to destroy the outer layer of skin, also known as the epidermis, and to penetrate the inner layer of skin, the dermis, to spur collagen production and build healthy skin tone and texture. We offer various types of laser skin resurfacing treatments to fit your skin type and needs. The Opus Fractionated Plasma skin resurfacing treatment creates minute channels in which plasma energy is applied to the dermis layer of the skin.
The plasma energy is sparked by RF energy and is excellent for body resurfacing of large areas, especially on darker skin types. This is not to be confused with the Plasma Pen, which we do not utilize. The plasma energy of Opus is excellent for resurfacing melanin-rich skin types and can cover large body surface areas with minimal downtime. Fractionated CO2 laser has been a gold standard for resurfacing due to its powerful delivery of light energy targeting superficial and deeper layers of the skin resulting in both a resurfacing and tightening effect depending on the settings utilized.
Get that Glow Back
Our Laser Skin Resurfacing procedures can improve skin tone and texture, remove fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin laxity, or tighten skin, reduce pore size, reduce acne scars, and give skin an overall glow that it may have been missing.
Smoother, Firmer Skin
If you are bothered by age spots, pore size, acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles or are just looking to improve skin quality, you’re a good fit for laser skin resurfacing. However, in the wrong hands, skin resurfacing can be dangerous. Skin conditioning prior to this treatment enhances results and minimizes potential risks. This is thoroughly discussed during the consultation with Dr. Christie.
Skin Resurfacing technologies are generally well tolerated with topical numbing up to 1 hour in advance of your procedure. Your comfort and experience are an important part of your results! We utilize topical numbing to the treatment area in combination with a choice of medication or laughing gas to make you comfortable. Treatment times vary based on treatment areas. Dr. Christie and her team of experts have personally tried all technologies performed at Curated Beauty Rx. As such, we can help manage your expectations with discomfort and downtime.
Energy devices represent a controlled injury to your skin. In order to control the injury, we want to ensure that you prepare your skin by avoiding excessive skin trauma for at least one week leading up to treatment (this may be longer depending on your skin health, and individual modifications will be made in advance of your treatment).
Recovery time from any of our Skin Resurfacing procedures varies depending on how much downtime you have and can range from three to ten days. Lighter settings result in less downtime. Dr. Christie and her team have curated all the details of post-procedure care, and post-procedure products and care are part of the post-procedure protocols that will be discussed with you in advance of your procedure.

Skin resurfacing typically is minimally painful. A topical anesthetic can be applied to the skin, and cooling agents can be used throughout the treatment to lessen any discomfort from the heat of the laser. At Curated Beauty MedSpa, we also offer medications or laughing gas for extra comfort.
CO2 lasers are excellent at treating wrinkles, photodamage, scars, and stretch marks as they improve skin quality and, due to the depth of light penetration, also provide a degree of skin tightening.
CO2 resurfacing in the wrong hands can be dangerous. It is important to find a qualified doctor who is trained in laser treatments. Risks include scarring, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, uneven skin tone, activation of herpes virus, bacterial infections, swelling, acne outbreak, or milia.
Patients who are on Accutane, have a history of keloids or are pregnant/breastfeeding, or have recent sun exposure are not candidates for resurfacing procedures.
CO2 resurfacing treatment time depends on the surface area being covered but typically takes 30-40 minutes.
