Body Sculpting Med Spa uses a CO2 fractional laser in our skin resurfacing treatments. As you age, your skin begins to break down and collagen production slows. This makes your skin more sensitive, and causes wrinkles, acne scars, discoloration, and stretch marks. CO2 laser resurfacing treatments help to reduce the signs of aging and rejuvenate and tighten your skin.
CO2 laser resurfacing is a great option for anyone wishing to improve the following cosmetic issues:
- Deep wrinkles
- Textural changes in the skin
- Loose skin
- Sun damage
- Blotchiness in the skin
CO2 fractional lasers work by targeting deeper areas of the skin. The heat up the collagen beneath your skin, stimulating collagen growth and creating firmer skin. Laser resurfacing also targets aging and damaged skin by inflicting miniscule wounds on the inner layers of skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing process and leads to the production of new cells.
Because the laser beam is fractionalized, the treated areas of your skin are surrounded by untreated areas. This reduces pain and discomfort, and promotes collagen production that is both quick and long-lasting. CO2 laser resurfacing is a non-surgical procedure, and does not involve the use of needles or incisions.
You may experience some swelling in the treated areas for up to 7 days following your laser resurfacing procedure. Collagen will continue to form for up to 6 months post-treatment, so you will continue seeing results up to that time.
