Embrace the Power of CO2 Laser Resurfacing 

No matter how they manifest, skin imperfections can negatively impact one’s self-image and willingness to branch out socially. Whether a patient is dealing with age spots, liver spots, wrinkles, or acne scars, CO2 laser resurfacing can address the issue and help the patient experience a higher quality of life. This highly effective procedure helps patients overcome these skin conditions while simultaneously achieving a major boost in collagen and elastin production, leaving the patient looking tighter and smoother than ever before. 

What is CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

CO2 laser resurfacing is a treatment that combines the power of carbon dioxide (CO2) and a resurfacing laser (ablative laser) to address unwanted skin developments, such as scars, warts, and fine lines. This technology employs short-pulsed high energy, allowing for the precise and effective removal of various skin imperfections with minimal damage to the skin. Utilizing shorter light pulses is ideal, as it allows for more selective targeting when vaporizing and eliminating tissue.  

    How does CO2 Laser Resurfacing work?

    The largest organ on the human body, the skin is constantly rejuvenating itself through the process of shedding layers and generating new ones. Unfortunately, skin damage and signs of aging supersede this process, allowing them to persist for years. 

    Laser technology generates a concentrated beam of light directed in a singular path. These light pulses are capable of vaporizing and eliminating layers of damaged tissue. In addition to this process, CO2 laser resurfacing also facilitates the development of new collagen and elastin fibers in the treated regions. This ultimately contributes to the generation of fresh tissue, giving the patient visibly healthier and firmer skin.

    What are the Benefits of CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

    • A non-surgical procedure that is performed on an outpatient basis 
    • A lower risk of infection when compared to invasive treatments 
    • Offers an increased level of control over the depth of skin penetration, allowing for increased accuracy, precision, and safety
    • Very minimal scarring 

    Who is Not a Candidate for CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

    Most patients are considered to be good candidates for the procedure. That said, certain individuals should not undergo this procedure, such as:

    • Women who are pregnant or currently breastfeeding
    • Those who are currently taking the drug isotretinoin (Roaccutane Claravis, Amnesteem,
    • Absorica, Isotroin) to treat acne 
    • Patients with lighter skin, as higher contrasts facilitate a safer and more effective treatment
