CO2 laser skin resurfacing is an abrasive technique which, through its deep action, promotes the regeneration of a new, healthier skin layers and stimulates the production of collagen during healing. You will notice a significant reduction in the appearance of imperfections in the skins surface. Areas that are often exposed to the sun are more prone to the appearance of imperfections, fine lines, unsightly pigment spots, or unattractive enlarged pores. The CO2 laser works to reverse these effects and promote a clear, vibrant complexion.
Using small beams of laser energy, the device penetrates and creates tiny channels. The principle behind the device consists of inducing thermal damage to the deep layers of the skin. The top layers of tissue are removed, while collagen and elastin production has been stimulated deep beneath the skins surface. After healing, the skin is smoother and more even, pores are tightened, and fine lines and scars are less visible or invisible.
You will notice an improvement in skin texture, irregularities, and dilated pores in the weeks following your treatment. Similarly, acne scars and fine lines generally fade a few weeks after CO2 laser resurfacing. Patients feel their appearance looks more even toned and youthful, giving them a confident, fresh glow.
