The CO2 Laser system is designed for a layer-by-layer removal of problematic tissue. The procedure itself involves placing carefully guided pulses of light on the skin to vaporize the top layer to a specific depth, revealing clear, healthy skin beneath.
CO2 Laser procedures are non-invasive and provide more control over how deep the treatment can penetrate the skin. Other treatments don’t offer that. Because it can penetrate further, it helps treat loose skin, wrinkles and pigment irregularities on the neck, chest, and hands.
There are many benefits to using CO2 laser treatments:
- Reduces or eliminates deep, pronounced lines and wrinkles
- Removes or smoothes out facial scars from trauma or acne
- Corrects uneven pigmentation
- Rejuvenates sun damaged skin
Perhaps one of the biggest benefits for patients, however, is that goals can usually be achieved with only one treatment. Unlike some procedures that must be done frequently or for prolonged periods of time to achieve results, CO2 laser treatment provides patients with a fast and effective method of getting rid of imperfections.
CO2 Laser treatments are more aggressive and give more dramatic results that many other laser rejuvenation procedures, the tradeoff is that recovery periods are usually longer.
