Wrinkles, acne, scars, age spots—they all happen. No matter what preventative measures you take for the health and quality of your skin, life events, injuries and even natural factors can take a toll on your appearance.
Luckily, Palo Alto Laser & Skin Care offers a laser treatment that can address several imperfections! By completely remodeling your skin down to its deepest layers, CO2 laser resurfacing can result in a dramatically improved appearance.
What Should I Know About CO2 Laser Resurfacing?
CO2 laser resurfacing is the ideal treatment option for patients who want to eliminate imperfections and improve the health and quality of their skin. The treatment is like receiving a complete makeover!
Also referred to as a non-surgical facelift, this procedure uses laser energy to transform the skin, treating wrinkles, scarring, crow’s feet, age spots, textural irregularities and more. The areas of the skin targeted by laser energy trigger new collagen production, therefore resulting in a smooth, tight and healthy-looking appearance. And not only does CO2 laser resurfacing provide remarkable results for the face—but it can be used on the neck, chest and other areas of the body as well!
What Should I Expect After CO2 Laser Resurfacing?
CO2 laser resurfacing requires recovery time for your skin to heal itself, as it treats both superficial and deep layers of skin. The treated area(s) will be in “repair mode,” which is a natural method for your skin to renew itself and correct areas of concern. As a result, treated skin may be red, swollen and feel sunburnt. Specific pre- and post-procedure care, including the use of products and medications, will be addressed by your skin care professional for a safe and effective recovery process.
It’s also important to note that more than one session of CO2 laser resurfacing may be required, and seeing the final product can take time. Patience is key with all methods of skin rejuvenation—especially those that work to remodel your overall appearance. But don’t fret—your Palo Alto Laser & Skin Care expert will work with you to reach your goals!
