Wrinkles, discoloration, scarring, and spots— no skin regimen can seem to fight these pesky skin concerns. Plus, if surgeries and needles make you nervous, a solution seems impossible.
Have you considered C02 Laser Resurfacing?
What is C02 Laser Resurfacing?
C02 laser resurfacing is one of the latest developments in non-surgical skin revitalization treatments. This treatment can improve your skin’s texture, signs of discoloration, and scarring.
What can C02 Laser Resurfacing be used for?
- Scars caused by acne or surgery
- Wrinkles or stretch marks
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Liver spots
- Enlarged oil glands
How is C02 Laser Resurfacing performed?
The procedure uses pulsed light energy to remove the damaged layers of skin. Your skin then begins the repairing process, making new collagen and elastin.
Is recovery lengthy or painful?
Post-procedure, your doctor will apply ointment and bandage your face. It will feel raw and may ooze. You may have itching, stinging, and pain similar to a mild sunburn. You should make sure to clean your treated areas several times a day and apply your prescribed skin care treatments as recommended by your doctor for optimum results.
Recovery often takes about two weeks and redness will subside in about a month. When returning back to your normal day-to-day routine, an oil-free makeup can be used to hide some of the redness. To improve your recovery, keep your head elevated and use ice to ease any pain and discomfort. It is important to avoid sun exposure as best as possible and apply sunscreen every day.
