CO2 laser skin resurfacing helps in the reduction of age spots, liver spots, fine lines, scarring, lentigines, wrinkles, skin laxity, dull tone and uneven coloration. The treatment uses a fractional method to remove layers of your skin. This triggers the healing process in your body to reveal new skin and provide numerous benefits. This is an exceptional treatment if you want to receive the best possible results with just one treatment.
The treatment is performed in the office. The majority of patients experience some redness in the skin for a short period of time after the treatment. If you do not take proper care of your skin and protect yourself from exposure to the sun, you may require maintenance treatments. This is especially true regarding the area around your eyes. If you do require a maintenance treatment, chances are good it will not become necessary for one to two years.
The Benefits of CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
CO2 laser skin resurfacing helps improve aging skin, skin damaged from the sun, wrinkles, skin with irregular pigmentation, irregular texture, shallow acne scars, sagging, and a wide variety of skin conditions. It is important to understand the results will become visible at different times for different people. Some people may enjoy immediate results, while other may have to wait to see their skin improve, especially if they experience redness after the treatment. It is equally as important to keep your expectations realistic. The length of time necessary to see optimal results are dependent on your age, your history of smoking and your skin care routine.
The best candidates for CO2 laser skin resurfacing have shallow acne scars, wrinkles or fine lines on the forehead, around the mouth, eyes, or skin that did not respond well to a facelift. If you have either very dark skin, deep stretch marks or acne, this may not be the right procedure for you. In these instances, the determination as to whether you should have the procedure must be made by our physician.
