The visible signs of aging are caused by changes deep in the layers of the skin. To improve skin tone and remove imperfections, CO2 Laser treats deep into the skin to create new collagen to improve the skin tone. The end result is a dramatic improvement in wrinkles, fine lines, skin tone and texture- in one treatment.
This is the ideal treatment option if you:
• Want to improve fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone and texture
• Want to achieve dramatic results in only one treatment
• Want a procedure that has minimal down time
CO2 laser treatment treats only a fraction of the skin, leaving bridges of untouched skin that aid in the healing process and reduce healing times enabling the return to normal activities quicker.
How does it work?
It utilizes a very narrow laser micro beam, about the width of a human hair, to remove columns of tissue deep into the layers of the skin. This initiates the body’s natural wound healing response which heals the surrounding zone of affected skin by creating new elastic collagen. The new collagen foundation works to improve skin tone and pull wrinkles out as well as plumping from within. The result is improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, skin tone and texture- in one treatment, and with minimal downtime.
CO2 laser treatment is commonly used on the face, around the lips, for crow’s feet, the neck, upper chest, hands and arms.
How is it performed?
First, the specialist will numb your skin with a topical anesthetic to aid in treatment comfort. During the procedure, you will feel a warm sensation as the laser is applied. Your total treatment time will last approximately 30 minutes, though total time will vary depending on the area treated. Immediately following treatment, the skin will be warm, and may be slightly red. As your skin heals, you will begin to notice an improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, tone and texture. You should be able to begin normal activities within a day or two depending on the treatment received. You should expect to continue to see improvement for up to six months following the procedure.
