Laser Skin Resurfacing

Years of sun exposure and the natural aging process can diminish your skin’s vibrant, youthful qualities. CO2 laser skin resurfacing in San Jose, California, with the Tetra Pro CO2 laser at Reveal Plastic Surgery is a safe, effective solution that offers easier treatments and better results than traditional CO2 lasers. You have the option of more intense treatments with more downtime or gentle CoolPeel® treatments that don’t interrupt your busy life. Our personalized approach ensures exceptional results tailored to your unique needs and available downtime.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing can safely treat most exposed areas and address a range of concerns, including:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Rough, uneven skin texture
  • Thinning, lax skin
  • Excess pigmentation, such as sunspots, age spots, freckles, and melasma
  • Redness, rosacea, hemangiomas, and other vascular concerns
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scars

The Tetra Pro CO2 laser is excellent for treating deeper, more significant skin issues. Its gentle CoolPeel option is well-suited for less advanced signs of aging and sun damage with no downtime.

What Is the Tetra Pro CO2 Laser?

The Tetra Pro is an ablative, fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser. Ablative treatments remove the surface of the skin instead of passing through it. “Fractional” means the laser treats tiny pinpoint columns of the skin (leaving adjacent skin untreated) for quicker recovery and reduced discomfort.

This laser is superior to other CO2 lasers because it has multiple treatment modes that enable control of the laser’s intensity, pulse shape, and depth for extreme precision. With the Tetra Pro CO2 laser, discomfort is minimal, so topical anesthetic is typically not required.


The Tetra Pro laser treats a range of skin tones and is safe for the face, neck, chest, and other exposed areas.
