CO2 Laser Skin Renewal
Whether you are looking to refresh your look or appear years younger...there are a lot of reasons why you should consider micro ablative skin rejuvenation.
What is SmartSkin CO2 LaserSkinRenewal?
The SmartSkin CO2 LaserSkinRenewal Workstation delivers many micro columns of laser energy to your skin. Each micro column receives just the right amount of laser energy to vaporize the aged skin while also stimulating new collagen growth of surrounding tissue. It is more than skin resurfacing, it's deep skin rejuvenation.
What is the procedure for being treated with the SmartSkin CO2 laser?
You and your doctor will carefully determine the treatment based on cosmetic and downtime expectations. You may be treated more gently over two, three or four sessions spaced four to eight weeks apart with minimal downtime. Or if you're looking for dramatic results with just one deep treatment you may decide you can afford a longer downtime.
Is the procedure painful?
Topical anesthetic makes the procedure virtually painless. Afterwards, your experience will depend on the treatment parameters agreed on between you and your doctor. Your skin will feel hot like a sunburn. You may have redness, itchiness and dryness after the procedure while your new skin resurfaces. The entire face can be treated in as little as 15-30 minutes with results lasting years given proper skin care and protection.
What is the recovery time?
Since SmartSkin CO2 is micro-ablative, recover time is significantly shorter than fully ablative technology. Within the first few days of treatment you may experience some redness and swelling with minimal pain. Each micro channel of ablation will quickly heal, and you will be able to apply makeup on the treated surface and return to your normal lifestyle within as little as 1-2 days. If you and your doctor choose a more aggressive treatment for more significant results, you may experience a downtime of 3-5 days.
What kind of results are possible?
Immediately after the treatment, your body naturally starts working by replacing aged skin cells with new ones. Shortly after the procedure you will notice your skin is visibly smoother, healthier and younger looking. And the best thing is that the results will continue to improve over time as your collagen remodels.
