I had a facial laser peel performed by Dr. Weber several months ago. I wanted my brown spots removed, smoother skin and fewer lines on my face. Dr. Weber recommended the C-O-2 laser for all of those issues. I had the procedure done in the office. The numbding cream worked well but I still felt some pain during the procedure. It was definitely tolerable ... and totally worth it! I had to hide out for the first five days after the procedure until the old skin came off - Dr. Weber and his staff had told me to expect this and to take off at least seven days to heal. My skin is tighter, smoother and my dark spots are gone. I have recommend the C-2 laser to all of my Colorado friends!
