CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Overview
Fractional CO2 Laser Skin resurfacing treatment is an ablative laser featuring state of the art technology for all aesthetic resurfacing desires. It is the Gold Standard for wrinkle reduction! The laser precisely treats sun damaged skin, uneven pigmentation, fine lines and deep wrinkles, large pores and acne scarring. Dramtic long-lasting results all with a single treatment.
What is the Downtime and Recovery?
Since the treatment provides dramatic results for wrinkle reduction and skin tightening, it generally has a longer recovery time of 7-10 days. The skin will be red for about one week post-treatment (almost like a sunburn) and then the skin is a very light pink in color for another week or two, but this can be covered by makeup.
The CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing is a customized procedure meaning there are different treatment levels. The deeper level will require more healing and downtime whereas the lightest level will have less healing time. Every patient’s skin is different, but generally the better the results the deeper the laser and the longer the downtime.
