CO2 laser skin resurfacing provides long term improvement of premature aging caused by fine wrinkles, skin discoloration, pigmentation, seborrheic keratosis, scarring, and large pores. Treatment parameters vary depending on whether patients require deep or superficial treatment. The entire face and neck areas can be treated to improve the cosmetic appearance of the face.

The CO2 laser resurfacing system can provide the safe alternative for skin tightening and laser face lift without significant downtime or surgical scars.
Candidates for CO2 Laser Treatment
Premature aging, skin laxity, large pores, scars, acne scars, fine wrinkles, and deep wrinkles
CO2 is a cutting-edge laser procedure in which lasers are used to provide smoother, clearer and more youthful-looking skin. The CO2 procedure typically has immediate effects, such as:
- Tightening the skin of the face
- Removing sun spots
- Reducing pore size
- Reducing wrinkles
- Reducing acne scars via soft tissue
- Reducing other textural irregularities
Due to the continued collagen production following the CO2 treatment, there is progressive improvement in the appearance of the treated skin for six months following the procedure.
Benefits of CO2 Laser Treatment
The benefits of the CO2 laser procedure are varied, and include:
- The procedure can be performed quickly, typically in about an hour
- Only local anesthesia is necessary
- CO2 is safe and effective
- Significant improvement can be seen after just one treatment
Aftercare and Recovery
After treatment with the CO2 laser, you will feel some slight swelling of the skin with mild tingling. Once the topical numbing medication wears off, you will feel some tingling of the skin for approximately 12 to 24 hours. It is recommended that patients take oral analgesic medications including Tylenol or ibuprofen post treatment to reduce the discomfort associated with the laser resurfacing.
