CO2 Laser Resurfacing

CO2 laser resurfacing is a skin rejuvenation procedure that uses carbon dioxide laser technology to address various skin concerns.

Benefits of CO2 Laser Resurfacing

  1. Wrinkle Reduction: Effectively reduces fine lines, deep wrinkles, and creases.
  2. Skin Tightening: Stimulates collagen production, leading to firmer and tighter skin.
  3. Scar Improvement: Helps improve the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, and other types of scars.
  4. Pigmentation Correction: Targets sun spots, age spots, and uneven skin tone.
  5. Texture Refinement: Smoothens skin texture, making it appear more youthful and radiant.
  6. Customizable: The intensity and depth of treatment can be customized to suit individual skin concerns.
  7. Long-Lasting Results: Provides long-lasting improvements in skin quality and appearance.

Downtime

CO2 laser resurfacing typically involves a more significant downtime compared to non-ablative laser treatments. Here’s what to expect:

  • Redness and Swelling: Significant redness and swelling are common immediately after the procedure and may persist for several days to a week.
  • Peeling and Crusting: The treated area may develop crusts or experience peeling as part of the healing process, usually lasting for about 7 to 14 days.
  • Sensitivity: The skin may feel sensitive, itchy, or tight during the initial healing phase.
  • Avoiding Sun Exposure: Strict sun protection measures are essential during the recovery period to prevent complications and ensure optimal results.
  • Makeup and Activities: Patients may need to avoid wearing makeup and engaging in strenuous activities for a week or more, depending on the extent of treatment.

While CO2 laser resurfacing offers remarkable skin rejuvenation benefits, it’s important to plan for the downtime and follow post-procedure care instructions provided by Dr. Cohen for a smooth recovery and optimal results.
