Facial skin tends to loosen and sag with time. Fine lines appear near the eyes, on and around the lips, and even across the cheeks. Creases deepen around the mouth and between the eyebrows.
With the CO2 Laser, severe lines and wrinkles can be smoothed, some acne and surgical scars can be minimized and the surface of the skin can be “freshened”, revealing the new skin underneath. The CO2 laser also shrinks and stimulates a renewal of the skin’s collagen for a softer, silkier and smoother appearance. Your skin is revitalized. Transformed.
This laser is reserved for facial skin only, whereas the Fractionated CO2 laser can be safely used on neck, chest, hands and back. These lasers can also be combined with fractionated technology for individual treatment plans. There is about a ten day downtime with the CO2 and erbium lasers, with pinkness of skin lasting up to a few weeks which can easily be camouflaged with make-up.
The initial redness fades in a few weeks to light pink, which is easily camouflaged with cosmetic and usually disappear completely in one to three months. Some swelling may occur.
It is important to use a sunscreen with SPF 15 protections and UVA and UVB rays, and to avoid sun exposure for several months as this can cause changes in pigmentation.
