SmartSkin CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Restore Your Skin Through CO2 Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

 

 

Over the years signs of aging appear as a result of exposure to the sun (photoaging) and the effects of gravity and natural aging. CO2 Fractional Laser skin resurfacing is a breakthrough treatment that will rejuvenate your skin and make you look years younger.

The texture, tone and pigmentation of your skin can be affected, often resulting in unwanted wrinkles and fine lines, sun spots and larger pores. This look of premature aging can negatively impact how we feel about our appearance and how we are perceived by others.

SmartSkin CO2 Before Afters

How does it work?

Our laser technician will use the SmartSkin CO2 fractional laser skin resurfacing laser to apply a series of tiny pulses of laser energy to your skin. As these microscopic holes heal, new younger looking skin is revealed and collagen is stimulated deep within your skin.

How many treatments will I need?

You and our Medical Director, Dr. Yu, will carefully determine the best course of treatment based on your cosmetic and downtime expectations. You may opt for two or three sessions with minimal downtime. Or if you’re able to take a longer downtime, experience dramatic results with just one treatment!

What does the procedure feel like?

A topical anesthetic is generally applied before the procedure, although we may recommend other approaches to make you comfortable. You will relax on the treatment bed and feel heat and tingling as the laser scanner moves across your face.

How long will the results last?

The entire face can be treated in as little as 30 minutes, with results lasting years, with proper skin care and protection.

What should I expect following treatment?

Immediately after the CO2 fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment, your skin will feel warm and appear to be sunburned. Your body naturally starts working by replacing the aged skin cells with new ones. After a few days, you will notice a more even skin tone, smoother skin texture, and healthier-looking skin. You may see some redness and swelling which is completely normal. Over time, collagen will regenerate and restore the supporting structure of your skin. You may be asked to avoid sun exposure for a period of time.

What is the recovery time?

Because SmartSkin CO2 has the distinct ability to deliver micro pulses of energy, you will experience a significantly shorter recovery time than with fully ablative lasers. Each tiny hole will quickly heal and in 2-7 days, you will be able to apply makeup on the treated surface and return to your normal lifestyle. You and Dr. Yu may choose a more aggressive treatment regimen for more significant results with a downtime of three to five days with just one treatment.
