Carbon Dioxide Laser Resurfacing
One of the most common reasons why people seek a skin care specialists is to find the most current and effective ways to make their skin look younger and keep it that way. Unfortunately, aging, poor nutrition, effects of the sun’s rays, and the general hazards of life take its toll on the skin. Over time, wrinkles, fine lines, shallow scars from acne, unresponsive skin, and other skin problems will appear.
To address these skin irregularities and blemishes, people often resort to laser resurfacing. This type of treatment involves small, concentrated pulsating beams of light being directed to the skin in an effort to remove dead or blemished skin on the top most layer. By having damaged skin cells vaporized at the surface level, the body will respond by renewing the cells during recovery. There are many types of laser resurfacing solutions, with one of the most effective being carbon dioxide (CO2) laser treatment.
How Does It Work?
Laser CO2 has been in use for many years to treat a variety of benign and malignant skin conditions, including wrinkles and scars, warts, birthmarks, enlarged oil glands on the nose, and many others. Carbon Dioxide Laser Treatment in particular, works by having the small beams of light eliminate dead skin cells, with the gap left by those cells forcing the body’s natural collagen production process to go faster.
The treatment is generally completed within one to two sessions, with its effect lasting for several years. It is non-invasive, and involves minimum discomfort, so requiring the use of anesthetic is not necessary.
