How Is CO2 Laser Resurfacing Performed?

CO2 laser resurfacing is a cutting-edge cosmetic procedure that uses a targeted, high-energy carbon dioxide (CO2) laser to rejuvenate the skin and restore a more youthful appearance. This innovative treatment works by precisely removing the outermost layer of damaged skin, while simultaneously stimulating collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin.

During the procedure, the laser is carefully guided over the targeted areas, delivering controlled bursts of energy that vaporize the damaged skin cells. This process helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, and other skin imperfections. The laser also heats the skin, stimulating the production of new collagen, which is essential for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness.

With its ability to deliver dramatic results and improve the overall texture and tone of the skin, this treatment has become a popular choice for those seeking to restore their youthful radiance.

Ideal Candidates for Laser Resurfacing

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation scarring or uneven skin tone and texture, you could be a candidate for CO2 laser treatment. Additional requirements may include that you:

  • Be in good overall health
  • Have realistic expectations regarding treatment results
  • Commit to a number of treatments to achieve your desired results
  • Not have any active acne or skin infections

What to Expect From CO2 Laser Resurfacing Treatment

During CO2 laser recovery, proper post-treatment care is crucial for optimal results. Following the procedure, the treated skin may be red, swollen and sensitive, and it’s important to follow the recommended aftercare instructions provided by our expert team.

In the week following the treatment, the damaged outer layer of skin will naturally flake off, revealing fresh, rejuvenated skin underneath. It’s vital to avoid picking at the skin or using harsh products during this healing process to prevent complications and ensure proper recovery.

Our experienced team will provide you with personalized guidance on how to care for your skin, including gentle cleansing, moisturizing and sun protection to promote healing and protect the newly revealed skin.

With proper care and patience, you can expect to see significant improvements in fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage and overall skin texture and tone as your skin continues to rejuvenate in the weeks after your treatment. In order to achieve the results you desire, you may need several treatments, which will be discussed and determined at your initial consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are laser treatments safe?

Absolutely. We use only FDA-approved laser technology to ensure our treatments are both safe and effective. While the laser is excellent in eliminating dead skin cells, it is not harmful to the healthy skin underneath.

How many treatments will I need?

This will depend on your age, the health of your skin and your aesthetic goals. This will be discussed at your consultation, where you’ll be informed of how many treatments are recommended for you.

How much does laser resurfacing cost?

The overall cost of laser resurfacing can vary depending on the length and number of your treatments. The total cost will be discussed at your consultation, or you’re welcome to contact our office for an approximate quote.

Does CO2 laser treatment hurt?

We do our utmost to ensure your treatments are as comfortable as possible. Treatment tolerance varies from person to person, but you may experience tightness of the skin, a ‘pins and needles’ feeling, or a feeling as if you’ve been sunburnt.

What’s the downtime for laser resurfacing?

You’ll be able to return to the majority of your daily activities directly after treatment. However, you’ll need to follow the advice given for skin care following your treatment to achieve the best result possible while your skin regenerates.
