CO2 Laser Resurfacing

Delivering Solutions from Discovery Through Development

What is CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

The CO2 laser provides the deepest level of penetration for facial resurfacing with often stunning results. By eliminating several outer layers of skin and inducing inflammation, the cells underneath churn out new collagen to restore and tighten, and the surface layer is improved in texture and tone.* CO2 is often used with great success in tender areas which cannot be treated with a TCA peel or as effectively with the Pearl fractional laser but which need intensive resurfacing for deep wrinkles—namely, the lower eyelids (dark circles and crepe-like skin) and the skin surrounding the mouth (upper lip "smoker's wrinkles," yellowed sebaceous skin, and "lipstick lines"). More aftercare and downtime are necessary than with the Pearl Fractional or a TCA peel, but the result after just one CO2 treatment can be transforming.

How Does It Work?

After local anesthetic is administered, the CO2 laser scans over the skin and vaporizes the damage precisely to the desired level. The new, smooth, pink skin underneath is immediately exposed which must be treated with compresses and ointments for a week, such as is done after a chemical peel. Typically by the end of the week, concealer and/or makeup can be applied as the treated area continues to heal. Results improve over time as collagen continues to be produced. The aftercare is worth the trouble when the dark circles are history, lipstick lines are no more, and people think you are ten years younger than your age!*
