What is CO2 laser skin resurfacing?
An advanced laser technology, the CO2 laser skin resurfacing method is performed to get rid of the damaged outer layer of the skin and reveal healthier, softer, and younger-looking skin. The treatment is also done to treat deeper wrinkles and facial lines.
How does CO2 laser skin resurfacing work?
This laser resurfacing method uses a powerful carbon dioxide laser to penetrate deeper into the tissues and effectively improve the appearance of pronounced creases and wrinkles in the face. Emitted through light beams, the treatment is delivered in pulses and scattered throughout the treated areas at a very high rate. With this technique, heat damage to the skin is minimized. The treatment may be performed on the entire face or even just around the eyes or the mouth.
Due to the power of the laser, at Riverside Medical Arts, our physicians perform this treatment. It is important that an experienced physician with extensive knowledge of delicate facial skin and lasers perform your laser skin resurfacing to avoid skin damage and less than optimal results.
Who are the best candidates for CO2 laser skin resurfacing?
- Bothered by the facial lines and wrinkles that have appeared in the face due to aging, gravity, and frequent sun exposure.
- Individuals who are bothered by acne, acne scars, facial scars or uneven skin pigmentation can also benefit from CO2 laser treatments.
