WHAT IS CO2 LASER SKIN RESURFACING?

Laser resurfacing is one of the most effective and efficient ways to correct and treat damaged or aged skin. By using highly-specialized lasers that can be adjusted to suit each treatment condition, your skin will be revitalized as dead and damaged skin cells are removed, and collagen is stimulated to rebuild tissue from the inside out.

Since we use the best laser skin resurfacing techniques, the treatment can be utilized for an array of different conditions. It can reduce and drastically improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, scars, and age spots.


WHAT AREAS CAN YOU TREAT WITH CO2 LASER SKIN RESURFACING?

We can safely treat the skin on the face, neck, and chest. CO2 laser settings can be adjusted, but we may recommend a series of Fraxel laser treatments for patients with darker skin types rather than CO2. 

WHAT TO EXPECT AT A LASER SKIN RESURFACING APPOINTMENT 

After the skin has been cleaned, we will apply a topical anesthetic cream to numb the area to ensure that you are completely comfortable during the procedure. Once the medication has set, we will wipe clean the medication and place laser shields over your eyes. The laser session will take approximately 30-45 minutes for a complete treatment of your face and a portion of your neck. Once the treatment is complete, we will apply a medicated balm to moisturize and promote healing.


We perform this procedure under sedation in our modern, state-of-the-art surgical suite for more extensive resurfacing, such as on severely sun-damaged or wrinkled skin. This will ensure a more effective and comfortable experience. Once the treatment is complete, your skin will be soothed with a combination of Regenica and antibiotic ointments. Proper care for your skin during the recovery period is essential to prevent any healing process complications.

Dr. Rice has found that epidermal growth factors in Regenica significantly improve recovery rates for patients who have undergone laser resurfacing treatment. This topical product is highly recommended to all patients, especially those that have chosen laser skin resurfacing.

WHAT IS THE LASER SKIN RESURFACING RECOVERY PERIOD?

The recovery period for any laser resurfacing is largely dependent upon the amount of treatment that you need and the severity of your situation. For mild treatments, your healing period should last approximately 2 weeks, and that includes time away from work. In addition, it is suggested that you avoid using makeup for 10-12 days and abstain from exercise for 3-4 weeks.

WHO MAKES A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LASER SKIN RESURFACING?

Laser resurfacing is a very patient-friendly procedure that is available and appropriate for most patients looking to renew damaged skin surfaces. If you have skin that is damaged or aged, you are likely a perfect candidate for laser skin resurfacing. Our medical staff will ensure that all of your questions will be answered and that your procedure is tailored to your needs and concerns.


IS LASER SKIN RESURFACING SAFE?

Yes! As with any medical or cosmetic procedure, the most important thing you can do is make sure you see a licensed and trained medical professional. Your appointment will include a discussion of your medical history, and the treatment site will be thoroughly examined as well. This not only ensures that you are getting the most effective treatment but that you understand the minor risks and complications that may pertain to your individual case.

CO2 LASER SKIN RESURFACING RESULTS

As with most high-level forms of skin treatment, the results are often significant and very noticeable. Whether you are treating damaged skin, wrinkles, or anything in between, you can expect to see a significant improvement, not only in your target areas but in your overall facial complexion. There will be permanent improvements to your skin, and if a proper skincare regimen is followed, your results should last for ten years or more.

CO2 LASER VS. FRAXEL LASER

Whereas a CO2 laser treatment is fully ablative, meaning all of the skin cells are targeted and removed, Fraxel lasers use fractionated energy to target 25-40% of skin cells at a time. This type of laser procedure is gentler and requires less downtime, but it will take a series of treatments to achieve optimal results. We offer both options in our office and will be able to recommend the best treatment for you after an assessment of your skin and discussion of your goals.



PROS & CONS OF CO2 LASER SKIN RESURFACING

Pros:

  • CO2 laser treatments have been around for decades and are proven to be both safe and effective.
  • While laser skin resurfacing is primarily for aging or damaged skin, it is an excellent non-surgical solution for many concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, and stretch marks. Most patients will see smoother, brighter, clearer skin following treatment.
  • Compared to surgery, healing, downtime, and the risk of scarring is minimal.

Cons:

  • While laser treatments are safe for the vast majority of patients, some are at greater risk for scarring or hyperpigmentation. This is why we require a thorough medical history before any treatment.
  • Laser treatments can be scaled to treat a range of issues from mild to more severe. Depending on the severity, downtime can be 2-4 weeks and may require anesthesia.
  • Laser treatments will not improve skin laxity. If this is a concern, patients may see better results from radiofrequency treatments or surgical procedures.
