A Fractional CO2 Resurfacing Laser is often touted as an instant face lift because of its ability to smooth deep and rough wrinkles and tighten sagging skin. It is a popular device used by certified dermatologists all over the world because of its high success rate, and ability to produce results in as little as two treatments. Learn more about how it can help you achieve the look you want.
Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Benefits
This type of laser has increased safety over older varieties. It is ideal for use on aging and sun damaged skin. The laser resurfaces skin, while tightening and firming it. As a result, natural collagen production is significantly increased.
The fractional CO2 resurfacing laser can treat a variety of skin related problems, including acne scars, crow's feet, deep set wrinkles, fine lines, rough texture, and discoloration. Learn about how laser treatment reduces acne symptoms and in particular, adult acne. Some complications may require more laser treatments than others.
What to Expect from the Fractional CO2 Laser
Undergoing laser skin resurfacing with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Nakhla is a safe and simple procedure. You can expect to receive a numbing treatment prior to the resurfacing. The procedure itself only takes about 15 minutes. Once it is completed, you may experience redness, dry and flaky skin, and tight skin, resulting in difficulty moving your facial muscles. Your dermatologist will apply a moisturizing cream, which will restore moisture to the skin and improve these symptoms. Most symptoms go away on their own within a few days.
For the fastest way to smooth, youthful looking skin, consider Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing as a low cost alternative to other cosmetic surgical procedures. Feel free to contact our office in Orange County to set up a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists to further discuss the procedure.
