Reveal & Resurface Healthier Skin

As you go through life, the skin acts as a protective barrier to keep your body safe from damage. But in its capacity as a shield, your skin is subjected to harsh UV rays, environmental pollutants, bacteria, and injuries. It’s no wonder your skin develops a worn, dull, and irregular appearance over time. But thanks to cutting-edge fractional laser technologies, we can exfoliate the uppermost layers of your skin and stimulate cellular regeneration and collagen production, thus revealing smoother, softer, healthier skin.

What is CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

CO2 laser resurfacing is a non-invasive procedure that involves delivering highly-calibrated wavelengths of laser energy into various depths of your skin. Thanks to laser energy, we can remove the uppermost layers of your dead and damaged skin cells, thus revealing smoother, softer, and more youthful skin underneath. Laser resurfacing also penetrates the deep dermis to stimulate collagen production, which makes your skin look firmer and tighter. CO2 laser resurfacing can also remove pigmented lesions, brown spots, and other skin irregularities.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing: Recovery & Downtime

CO2 laser resurfacing causes minimal post-treatment side effects. Your skin might look slightly flushed and sunburned, but the redness should dissipate within a few days. You may also experience peeling after a few days as the dead and damaged skin cells fall away to reveal smoother skin underneath. The peeling process should take around 7 to 10 days. You may resume your daily activities immediately, but avoid exfoliation, saunas, direct sunlight, and strenuous workouts for a few days.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing: Results & Longevity

The results of CO2 laser resurfacing appear gradually over several days and weeks. Your skin will look smoother and brighter once the dead skin cells peel away, but the results will continue improving over several weeks as your body stimulates collagen production. The longevity of the results depends on numerous factors, including your sunlight exposure, skincare routine, and more. The medical provider will offer skincare tips to help you maintain the results.

The Complete CO2 Laser Resurfacing Process

CO2 laser resurfacing is a simple, in-office procedure that concludes within 30 minutes. The medical provider carefully examines your facial skin, analyzes your skin type and conditions, discusses your goals, and calibrates the CO2 laser device accordingly. The medical provider cleanses your facial skin, following which you must wear protective goggles.

The laser device is moved across the treatment areas to deliver controlled laser energy into your skin. You may feel a warm sensation like a hot rubber band snapping against your skin. After covering all treatment areas, the medical provider applies a soothing gel to reduce discomfort and protect your skin from sunlight.
