Just as a road becomes rough, uneven, and dull over time, so does your skin. Laser skin resurfacing performed at the Gladstone Clinic is then needed to provide your skin with a smoother, brighter appearance. Dr. Hayes Gladstone proudly performs facial resurfacing for patients in San Ramon, Danville, Pleasanton, San Francisco, and the surrounding communities in California.

At the Gladstone Clinic, we have different types of facial resurfacing and customize them to your needs. We primarily use carbon dioxide, fractional carbon dioxide, and radiofrequency. Downtime will vary with each procedure. As with other procedures, there are risks, and proper pre-procedure preparation and post-procedure care is important to minimize them.

At the Gladstone Clinic, we use the latest technology including the Syneron C02RE.
