What does Laser Skin Resurfacing do?

Laser skin resurfacing refreshes and restores healthy skin by eliminating damaged skin cells and promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells in their place.

Fractional CO2 is an incredible treatment for giving you drastic improvement and results.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Fractional CO2 Laser treats many body areas, including the face, neck, and chest. We have a lot of flexibility with our fractional CO2 laser because it can treat larger areas like the stomach, arms, legs, and smaller, more sensitive areas of the body.

How do you know if Laser Resurfacing is right for you?

Damaged skin remains unchanged or gets worse over time if left untreated. You might see slight improvements in your acne scars as the years go by just from natural fading, but shallow pitted scars won’t naturally fill themselves back in.

Additionally, the development of sunspots and other signs of photodamage is a progressive problem. Once these areas of discoloration become apparent, they don’t go away on their own and may be reduced over time with expensive skin care products, but even that may not be what you’d consider ‘good enough’.

Fractional laser skin resurfacing targets damaged skin at the appropriate depth. With each pulse, damaged skin cells break down. As these areas slough away post-treatment, healthy underlying skin is revealed. Increases in collagen production, cell renewal, and other skin-supporting activities leave the treated area clearer, smoother, more supple, and virtually blemish-free.

How does Fractional CO2 work?

Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is an ablative laser skin treatment. It removes the top layer of skin and stimulates cell regeneration and healthy tissue repair from the layer below.

Fractional CO2 lasers are precise in targeting skin damage at significant depths. Fractional CO2 lasers can address a greater range of cosmetic concerns, minimize the appearance of severe aesthetic issues, and provide incredible treatment outcomes with minimal risk of unintentional effects.

Laser Resurfacing with Fractional CO2 is a great treatment choice if you’ve been unhappy with the results of other treatments for hyperpigmentation, photodamage, scar removal, or other skin concerns.

Is Fractional CO2 painful?

Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a moderately invasive laser skin treatment. It targets skin damage at greater depths. The procedure is often described as an uncomfortable “pins and needles” sensation. We take several measures to minimize this discomfort both during and after your visit, and we can discuss your options in your consultation.

What’s the recovery time for Laser Resurfacing?

Healing time for Fractional CO2 is usually 1-2 weeks. You can expect to experience redness, swelling and puffiness, flaking, peeling, and dryness. Once your skin heals, it’ll be slightly pink for about 3-4 weeks. Your skin will be very sensitive, and you’ll be given an exact set of instructions for home care. People tend to heal fastest when they do not smoke, maintain balanced and nutrient-dense diets, and keep themselves properly hydrated. We’ll walk you through the process to glorious, refreshed skin every step of the way.

How long does CO2 Fractional Laser last? Are the results permanent?

Much like any other cosmetic procedure, Laser Skin Resurfacing is incapable of stopping the aging process altogether. However, unlike dermal fillers and injectable neuromodulators, the results of laser resurfacing last well beyond mere months. These treatments essentially reverse the hands of time. If you take good care of your skin following treatment and avoid new sun damage —meaning SPF 30+ every day, all day, you’ll be able to maintain lasting results.

How often will I need Laser Resurfacing with Fractional CO2?

We recommend getting a laser resurfacing treatment every 12 months to keep your skin clear, tight, smooth, and rejuvenated.

It’s time to meet the real you —the confident you.
