Dr. Karen Soika
An alternative to chemical peels, the CO2 laser treats your wrinkles, discoloration, sun damage, age spots, and acne scars. Instead of removing your skin layers with chemicals, the CO2 laser removes skin layers by vaporization. Your results will be similar to those of a chemical peel, but the CO2 laser allows you to skip the chemicals, if those just aren’t your thing.
Your skin thickness, texture, and tone will influence whether you’re a good candidate for a CO2 laser treatment. There may be more risks if you have a darker skin tone, but Dr. Karen Soika will choose safe settings and help you decide.
For best results, your provider may give you a skincare routine about six weeks before your CO2 laser treatment. Depending on the intensity of your treatment, you may receive local anesthesia or a sedative to help you relax. Sometimes, general anesthesia is required.
A CO2 laser treatment typically takes about an hour to complete. After the procedure, your skin may be covered with petroleum jelly, dressings, or a bandage.
Dr. Karen Soika will help you determine the number of CO2 laser treatments you’ll need to reach your skin goals. Typically, you’ll start with one treatment, and wait for results to appear over several months later before determining if another treatment is needed. Results of a CO2 treatment vary based on skin quality and thickness, and the settings used on the treatment.

Dr. Soika is a highly competent and compassionate cosmetic surgeon. She did an eye lift for me and I am absolutely thrilled and satisfied with the results. She is masterful at her work and takes extra care to ensure proper follow up and recovery is accomplished.
I suffered deep thermal burns to my face caused by the incompetence of a Dermatologist for 1 year with no relief, until I met Dr. Soika. She administered a treatment to give me the relief I was looking for. She was the only Dr.who took the time to listen, diagnose and performed a procedure with great results! Because of her, I am on the road to recovery!
My sons wedding was coming and I wanted to look and feel my best, I called Dr. Soika because I saw her local Ad. It was the best call I made! My skin looks 7 years younger-tighter, and I look for rested and awake. I didn’t believe it was possible without surgery, but Dr. Soika did an incredible procedure in 1 1/2 hours with no down time.A.
