How it works

Resurfacing from a CO2 laser works by removing the upper layers of skin in a fractionated method. Distinct areas of skin are removed, allowing for the surrounding intact areas of skin to aid in healing. This helps reduce sun-damaged skin (such as age spots, sun freckles, and lentigines), fine lines, sagging skin, and scars!

Patients will notice improvements in texture, tone, skin firmness, and a more even coloration. This highly effective treatment also helps treat spider veins and reverses the signs of aging.

Our Results

Patients will notice improvements in texture, tone, skin firmness, and a more even coloration. Patients should expect to notice a reduction in sun-damaged skin (such as age spots and sun freckles), fine lines, and scars. Additionally, the skin will continue to improve for upwards of 6 months. To ensure the best possible results, avoid sun exposure and follow proper skin care instructions.

Skin will heal within 1 to 2 weeks, depending on the specific and individualized treatment plan for each patient. Patients may experience redness, crusting, dryness, and peeling after their treatment. Work and social activities may need to be modified during this period to allow for adequate downtime. Potential side effects of skin rejuvenation procedures may include skin infection, scarring, and/or hypo- and hyperpigmentation.
