Skin rejuvenation isn’t merely something accomplished at home with pricey serums and creams that promise unreliable results. Rather, it is also found in professionally performed non-invasive treatments that help your skin stimulate its own restorative processes, thereby erasing signs of aging.
CO2 laser resurfacing is one such treatment, offering an industry-leading option for deep revitalization.
Our team utilizes the Phoenix CO2 laser to treat patients’ acne scars, enlarged pores, uneven skin pigmentation, deep wrinkles, and more.
Specifically, this laser paves the way for dermal rebirth by way of infrared light, which eliminates the topmost layer of skin while directing heat into the subdermal layer. Thus, the skin increases the volume of collagen it produces and generates newer, healthier skin as a part of its natural healing process.
While other laser treatments are designed specifically to stimulate collagen and eliminate surface-level blemishes, the CO2 laser does this and more. This treatment is designed to aid in the regenerative process for deeper skin flaws, such as scarring, warts, wrinkles, and more.
Additionally, while some patients need two to three sessions of this treatment, the majority will find that one session alone provides optimal results.
Spanning about one hour in total, the CO2 laser resurfacing process begins with the topical application of numbing cream to mitigate any discomfort patients may experience.
Following the laser resurfacing, the recovery period is about a week, on average. Patients may expect their skin to be unevenly textured, red, and possibly swollen. In other words, their skin may appear as though it has a sunburn in the days following their appointment.
Following the appointment, we will also offer recommended topical creams and other products, as we recommend that patients moisturize their skin regularly while recovering.
