Your Laser Skin Resurfacing Options In Palo Alto

CO2RE Laser

The CO2RE laser is a sophisticated tool used in skin resurfacing. It delivers fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) energy into the skin to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin’s outer layers. It removes the epidermis, causing the old, damaged skin cells to slough off. Meanwhile, the CO2 energy also penetrates the dermis, prompting the body’s natural healing process to stimulate collagen production. The regenerated skin is smoother, firmer, and more even in tone.

Fraxel DUAL

Fraxel DUAL utilizes fractional laser technology for skin revitalization. This advanced system emits microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin, creating controlled zones of thermal injury. This prompts the body’s natural healing mechanisms, replacing damaged cells with fresh, healthy tissue. The Fraxel DUAL system’s unique dual-wavelength approach further enhances its effectiveness, targeting superficial and deeper skin layers. The result is improved texture, reduced pigmentation irregularities, and a more youthful complexion.

Advantages Of Laser Skin Resurfacing:

  • Precision targeting of skin concerns
  • Non-surgical, non-invasive treatment
  • Minimal side effects and downtime
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Customizable treatment levels
  • Improves skin texture
  • Noticeable results

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs

Which is the right laser skin resurfacing technique for me?

Choosing the ideal laser skin resurfacing technique depends on your skin concerns and goals. If you’re seeking comprehensive rejuvenation, the CO2RE laser’s precision and collagen-boosting abilities may be suitable. Alternatively, the Fraxel DUAL’s dual-wavelength approach might be preferable for targeting pigmentation issues and texture irregularities. Our experts will examine your skin and discuss your goals to curate a personalized treatment plan.

Is laser skin resurfacing painful?

Discomfort during laser skin resurfacing is typically minimal and manageable, often mitigated by topical anesthesia.

What are the side effects?

After laser skin resurfacing, you might experience temporary redness, swelling, and mild discomfort resembling a sunburn. Skin flaking and peeling can also occur during the healing process. These effects are transient and subside as your skin rejuvenates, revealing a smoother, revitalized complexion.

Is there any downtime?

You’ll experience some downtime after laser skin resurfacing, varying based on the technique and intensity. Generally, a few days of redness and peeling can be expected. You can resume normal activities within a day or two, but strenuous workouts and direct sunlight should be avoided for a few days. Our cosmetic providers will offer comprehensive aftercare guidelines to ensure optimal results.

When will the laser skin resurfacing results appear?

You’ll notice initial improvements shortly after laser skin resurfacing, with clearer, smoother skin emerging within a week. The results will continue improving for weeks as collagen production is stimulated. The final results appear within a month or two.

How long do the laser skin resurfacing results last?

Your laser skin resurfacing results are long-lasting. With proper skincare and sun protection, the improvements in texture, tone, and appearance can last years. However, as the aging process continues, you can opt for occasional maintenance treatments.
