  • C02 Resurfacing

CO2 laser resurfacing is an advanced cosmetic procedure that removes your wrinkles, warts, textural irregularities, and scars without damaging the surrounding tissue. By vaporizing the damaged outer layers of your skin with short-pulsed light energy, the smoother, softer skin underneath is revealed. This treatment also boosts your production of collagen, a substance that renders the skin tighter and more elastic. 

Laser resurfacing is a quick and painless procedure, generally lasting no more than 2 hours. Unlike other non-invasive cosmetic treatments, CO2 laser resurfacing does require some downtime. Expect the treated area to fully heal in 4 to 7 days. 

Complications following the treatment, such as burns and hyperpigmentation, are unlikely.

More About C02 Resurfacing

Who is this treatment for?

CO2 laser resurfacing is suitable for most people wanting smoother and taut skin on their face, neck, chest, and arms. Patients looking to heal from sun damage or to remove acne or surgical cars will especially benefit from this treatment. 

People with active acne or very dark skin do not respond very well to this treatment. CO2 laser resurfacing also does not remove stretch marks. 

What are the expected results of this treatment? 

The effects of this treatment are immediately noticeable. You will also enjoy continuous improvements over up to 6 months as the increased collagen production leads to tighter skin. 

You can expect brighter and smoother skin for up to 2 years before needing a second treatment. Regular treatments every 18 to 24 months can significantly slow down the visible signs of aging.
