Many people are unsatisfied with the appearance of their skin because of sun damage, scarring, or the effects of the aging process. Although they would like to address these concerns, some are confused by the dizzying number of treatments available. One method that many people are seeking more information about is CO2 laser skin resurfacing.
What is CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
This treatment helps remove skin tissue layers using a specialized technique which leaves the surrounding skin unaffected to speed healing. CO2 laser skin resurfacing has numerous benefits, including the reduction of age spots or sunspots, freckles, fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, uneven skin coloration, dull skin tone, scarring, and thinning skin.
CO2 laser skin resurfacing may be right for you if you would like to get great results from only one treatment. One treatment is similar to having multiple alternative treatments at one time. It is also highly effective for those who desire treatment for wrinkling and advanced skin damage.
A Look at the Procedure
A CO2 laser skin resurfacing procedure is performed in the comfort of our office. The amount of discomfort experienced is based upon how deep the treatment goes. We may put a topical numbing agent over the treatment area to ensure your comfort.
You will be advised to follow post-procedure instructions and use any recommended medications as indicated to enhance your recovery. Once you have fully healed, you can enjoy your results, which are long-lasting.
Can I Benefit from CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
If you have skin that is sun-damaged, wrinkled, aging, unevenly pigmented, or has poor texture, you may notice considerable improvement with CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment. With that being said, it is important for you to have realistic expectations regarding your results. This treatment can enhance the health and appearance of your skin, leading to a more youthful glow. It will undoubtedly leave you with smoother, softer skin. However, it will not make a 40-year-old have skin that looks like it did when they were 20. People who know what to expect regarding their results are typically happiest with the final outcome.
