The benefits of laser resurfacing to smooth visible signs of aging and reduce the appearance of skin imperfections are being utilized in many treatments on the aesthetic market, but at Carolina Plastic Surgery, we utilize CO2 laser resurfacing for dynamic results with faster healing.
What is CO2 Laser Resurfacing?
While other laser skin rejuvenation treatments remove the entire skin surface and require extensive healing time, CO2 laser resurfacing involves a fractionated method that treats one area of skin at a time. The controlled laser energy gently heats the skin and removes small columns at a time while leaving healthy skin intact, which aids in the healing process for faster results.
There are several laser treatments on the aesthetic market, but CO2 resurfacing heals aging and damaged skin inside and out with fast results and quick healing.
In addition to removing fractionated areas of skin at a time, the laser energy also gently heats the deeper layers of skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin for subtle, continuous changes over time. These building blocks of the skin remodel and restructure the surface for a naturally revitalized complexion.
During CO2 laser resurfacing, both surface and the deeper dermal layers of skin are treated, which can yield both immediate and gradual results. Some post-treatment redness or flushing may occur in treated areas, but this should subside within a few days. As new collagen and elastin remodel the surface, more gradual changes may be seen over time.
Depending on your aesthetic goals and individual condition, multiple sessions may be necessary to create optimal results. During your consultation, Dr. Saini and our medical team will create a treatment plan and let you know what to expect.
No two types of skin or skin conditions are alike, and the best way to determine if this treatment is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Saini and have your health, skin specifications and treatment goals evaluated.
