How Co2 resurfacing Laser Works: Revolutionary Resurfacing For Skin Renewal
A CO2 resurfacing treatment delivers pulses of light to the epidermis while it sends heat to the deeper layers of skin to stimulate longer-term collagen growth. We frequently combine CO2 Resurfacing laser with other treatments to offer outstanding results but with fewer treatments than if either option were used alone. If you desire a similar but less aggressive treatment, we offer a variety of chemical peels that are three to five times less intense than our CO2 Resurfacing treatment.
What Can I Expect From My Co2 Treatment?
During the procedure your clinician guides the CO2 laser over your skin. The laser simultaneously sends heat to the deeper layers of skin to provide longer-term collagen-stimulating benefits. On day five to seven skin will peel or slough off revealing new, healthy and vibrant skin underneath. In a short time, patients will notice overall skin clarity, smoothness and softness. The treatment can take anywhere from an hour to three hours depending on the areas being treated.
What Are The Side Effects?
CO2 resurfacing is considered a controlled burn. Your skin will be red, tender and in need of moisture and good skincare. We will provide you with all products to take care of your skin for your first month. You will continue the application of recommended healing products for approximately seven to ten days after your treatment. We will advise you when to resume your at-home skin care routine. For a few days following the treatment, you will need to wear protective clothing and limit sun exposure. You can start wearing make-up when your skin is clear and no longer sloughing.
What Is The Social Downtime?
Downtime is the time spent recovering from a procedure. We recommend a full seven to ten days of recovery. During this time you will need to avoid the sun and follow the full skin care regime we provide. This insures the best results possible.
