As we age and are exposed to the effects of our environment, our skin eventually pays the price. If you are dealing with skin conditions like lines, wrinkles, sun damage, or blemishes, you may be looking for effective treatments that are safe and effective. CO2 laser resurfacing is a technique that has grown in popularity in recent years because of its ability to treat a wide variety of skin complaints.
CO2 laser resurfacing is a type of skin treatment involving the removal of the outer layer of skin, which promotes the development of healthier, more youthful-looking skin to replace it. It is helpful in the treatment of lines, wrinkles, scars, and other unwanted blemishes.
The procedure most commonly is used to treat the face, as this is the area that most people are concerned about the most. At your initial consultation, we will discuss your goals and needs to explore what is possible in your individual case.
How many CO2 laser resurfacing treatments will be required depends on your unique skin type and your cosmetic goals, as well as what you are looking to treat. Some patients need only one treatment to achieve their goals, while others may take up to six treatments to meet their objectives. Again, at your initial consultation, we will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan to suit your own unique needs and goals.
This treatment is performed in the comfort of our office. The complete length of your treatment varies, based upon the number of laser passes required and other factors. The procedure is performed using local anesthesia. As such, most patients experience only minimal discomfort.
Immediately after your treatment, your skin will begin the process of repairing itself by replacing old skin cells with new ones. You should also notice skin that is visibly healthier, smoother, and more youthful in appearance at this time. Your results will continue to progress over the following weeks and months.
