This paper evaluates the use of CO2 laser peeling as an isolated procedure or associated with the 'round lifting' technique for correction of the aging face. This technique, as described by the senior author, allows for the treatment of signs of facial aging while maintaining anatomical structures. The article reviews the philosophy and evolution of the classical surgical procedures in an overall experience of 7477 patients operated on at the Ivo Pitanguy Clinic, and emphasizes how the CO2 laser resurfacing has enhanced the aesthetic result in selected cases.
