CO2 Laser Resurfacing


Signs of aging and sun damage are easily noticeable, especially on the face. More and more men and women are looking for solutions to reduce the appearance of bumpy skin, blemishes, static wrinkles, acne scars, and more. With the technological advancements in dermatology, various effective procedures can be performed to achieve natural results in terms of younger-looking, blemish-free, and revitalized skin.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing: A Brief Overview

CO2 laser resurfacing is one of the best treatments that can revitalize and restore your skin for a more youthful appearance. It is often referred to as a laser peel, which utilizes the most advanced laser technology to correct problem areas of the skin such as wrinkles, acne scarring, age spots, pigmentation issues, skin texture irregularities, and blemishes. This non-invasive cutting-edge laser treatment consistently produces remarkable skin-rejuvenation results in a mere 30-60 minutes.

Once this treatment is complete, the blemishes will be gone leaving behind skin that is smooth and tight. Plus, it can also enhance the appearance of aged, sun-damaged, and acne-prone skin.

The Benefits Of CO2 Laser Resurfacing

CO2 laser resurfacing essentially vaporizes the damaged skin one layer at a time. Since it utilizes non-ablative lasers, this treatment deeply stimulates your body’s natural healing response – the production of collagen and elastin. Thus, patients can expect a more youthful, firm structure, clearer, and more beautiful skin. With reduced downtime, results can be noticeable a few days after treatment and continue to improve over time. Fractionated laser with Lutronic’s eCO2 “controlled chaos” technology allows us to provide superior results with much less downtime.

How Long Will Results Last?

Just like any other treatment, results can be enhanced and prolonged with proper skincare and SPF protection. Once the healing process has been completed, the results can last for up to five years or more, depending on what aesthetic concerns are being treated.

CO2 Fractional Resurfacing Candidate Criteria

Generally, CO2 laser resurfacing is safe and suitable for all skin types and colors, depending on the depth of the peel. One of the major factors that determine whether you’re a good candidate or not, is your skin tone. Darker skin tones have always been more of a risk factor for laser treatments. This treatment is not recommended for patients who are currently taking Accutane or those with certain health problems. Pregnant women are also not good candidates for this treatment.

Prior to undergoing this treatment, it is best that you consult with Dr. Chopra to further understand the risks and pre/post-operative instructions.
