There are many different treatments to combat skin imperfections on the market. Various surgical techniques help to smooth out the skin and give a rejuvenated appearance, but for patients who wish for a nonsurgical way to improve their skin, CO2 Laser treatments are a great option. At Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging, our team offers the CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment to give patients amazing results with no risks of surgery.
The CO2 Laser skin resurfacing skin treatment uses a CO2 laser system, which is some of the earliest developed lasers. The laser system uses a mixture of carbon dioxide and other gases that run through a tube producing light. It uses longer wavelengths to treat many skin concerns even in the deeper skin tissue. This treatment is a completely non-invasive way to address many different skin concerns.
Many different problems that occur on the skin can be fixed with a CO2 Laser treatment. The many treatment areas are:
- Fine Lines
- Acne Scars
- Scar Treatment
- Sun Damage
- Skin Laxity
- Rough Texture
- Age Spots
At Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging our team helps many people get smoother, younger-looking skin with the CO2 Laser treatment. The ideal candidates are people who have skin with sun damage, age spots, wrinkles, discoloration, acne scars, rough texture, and other skin problems. To know if this treatment will benefit you, Dr. Vinas will examine your skin thoroughly and review your medical history to make sure that optimal results can be achieved.
Patients who decide to undergo the CO2 laser treatment will get a personalized treatment plan created by Dr. Vinas. Depending on your skin type and desired results, patients may need to undergo multiple laser treatments. Prior to the treatment, the skin will be prepped for the laser and a topical numbing cream will be applied for comfort. The laser will be run over the treatment area, which will heat and shrink the skin tissue to improve the laxity. As this is happening, the laser will promote the peeling of dead skin cells from the outer layer of skin. The CO2 laser treatment helps to promote the production of collagen in the skin for improved hydration and elasticity. This leaves a smoother, radiant complexion that patients can see immediately.
Patients will receive complete instructions for pre-treatment and post-treatment care. There is minimal downtime associated with the CO2 laser skin treatment, some patients experience minor side effects that reflect a sunburn. To make sure that your skin heals properly, it is important to avoid direct sunlight or excessive heat following the treatment. After about two weeks, most patients suffer no more side effects from the treatment and can begin enjoying their smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin.
