This cutting-edge CO₂ laser procedure can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkling and the signs of aging in as little as one treatment session.
What is CO₂ laser resurfacing skin rejuvenation?
CO₂ laser resurfacing skin rejuvenation is an aesthetic treatment that uses a fractional CO₂ laser to refresh and restore the appearance of the skin. This state-of-the-art laser can be adjusted for both casual and extensive procedures. It can be used to treat a wide variety of skin issues including:
- Acne Scars
- Age Spots
- Facial Scars
- Fine Lines
- Uneven Skin Texture
- Uneven Skin Tone
Because this treatment can be precisely adjusted to address each patient’s unique aesthetic concerns, it offers significantly less discomfort and shorter downtime than similar laser procedures. Best of all, most patients are able to obtain significant skin rejuvenation results after a single procedure.
How does CO₂ laser resurfacing work?
Before treatment begins, topical anesthesia is administered to improve patient comfort. The intensity of the CO₂ laser is adjusted depending on each patient’s unique treatment goals.
The CO₂ laser delivers laser energy in small, precise columns. This energy is absorbed by both the upper and lower layers of the skin as heat, stimulating the body’s natural healing process. Blood begins to rush to the treatment area, and cellular regeneration begins to take place. The CO₂ laser also triggers the creation of collagen, a structural protein essential to how full, tight, and firm the skin is.
Because the CO₂ laser energy is delivered in columns, pockets of skin in the treatment area are left unharmed. Because less of the skin’s surface needs to be healed, the amount of downtime patients experience following the treatment is significantly lower than it would be after a different laser procedure. Most patients experience peeling for 7-10 days after the procedure, along with a sunburn sensation.
Am I a candidate for CO₂ laser resurfacing skin rejuvenation?
CO₂ laser resurfacing skin rejuvenation is most beneficial for patients in their 30s or older that wish to correct skin damage caused by sun exposure, the natural processes of aging, or skin trauma or damage. The CO₂ laser treatment can bring these patients natural-looking skin rejuvenation results in as little as one treatment.
