LASER SKIN RESURFACING
Laser skin resurfacing is ideal for improving skin’s texture, reducing wrinkles, decreasing fine lines and reducing discolorations by stimulating new collagen growth. A number of technologies are available, including traditional CO₂ lasers and newer fractional technology. CO₂ laser technology has been known as the gold-standard in skin resurfacing for over 15 years. New CO₂ technologies offer outstanding results with only a fraction of the downtime. Traditional laser skin resurfacing treatments often mean 1-2 weeks of recovery. New fractional technologies offer the desired results often in a single treatment with rapid recovery in a few days.
Laser skin resurfacing is advantages over other approaches that can cause discomfort, bleeding, and bruising, all of which lead to a longer recovery time. With today’s quality lasers, skin resurfacing is the gentler and safer approach.
CO₂ Laser Skin Resurfacing
CO₂ laser skin resurfacing precisely removes the outer layers of damaged and aged skin to reveal the underlying layer of beautiful, smooth, and younger looking skin. CO₂ laser technology is the most common used skin resurfacing surgery today. The latest CO₂ laser resurfacing technology uses beams that are scattered or pulsed at a very rapid rate. This method minimizes the exposure of heat that your skin undergoes which removes heat damage your skin would be exposed to as well as decreases after surgery recovery time. It also allows a higher power CO₂ laser to be used to reach deeper tissue and more pronounced creases and wrinkles.
Benifits of CO₂ laser skin resurfacing: By removing the damaged outer layer of skin, CO₂ laser skin resurfacing treatment can slow down and reverse the process of aging.
**After completion of the Resurfacing Procedure we apply a vial of PRP to skin and do a light pass with the Micropen to allow the PRP to penetrate. PRP helps the skin heal faster and also helps with overall appearance of the skin.
