As you age, sun exposure can take a toll on the tone and texture of your skin. This can result in the appearance of wrinkles and sunspots. Premature aging can significantly impact your self-confidence. SmartSkin CO2 laser skin resurfacing can revitalize and restore your skin for a more youthful appearance.

How Does CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

SmartSkin CO2 laser skin resurfacing works by delivering short energy laser beam bursts to the targeted area. Skin is removed layer by layer to stimulate collagen production for new skin growth. Only one treatment is usually required to achieve the desired results. Your treatment plan can be discussed, as well as additional sessions, during your consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.

This minimally invasive treatment can take less than 30 minutes. After the procedure, you may feel a sunburn sensation and slight swelling. Normal activities may be fully resumed a few days to a week after the procedure. Results can be noticeable a few days after treatment and continue to improve over time.

Benefits of SmartSkin CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

SmartSkin CO2 laser skin resurfacing helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin tone. The procedure can help resolve minor skin imperfections like acne scars, age spots, bumps and enlarged pores. The treatment can be used on the face, neck or hands to rejuvenate a more youthful appearance.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
