Have you noticed your face looking tired, rough, or sun-damaged? You can restore smooth, youthful skin with CO2 laser skin resurfacing. This effective laser treatment removes layers of old, damaged skin cells and replaces them with healthy, brighter ones.
What is CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
CO2 laser skin resurfacing uses advanced laser technology to remove damaged layers of skin. Removing these layers allows healthy new skin cells to emerge, replacing the old ones with a smooth, rejuvenated surface. CO2 laser skin resurfacing can address even severe signs of aging and environmental damage. These highly customizable lasers work at a precisely controlled depth to address your most concerning skin issues.
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
CO2 laser skin resurfacing works by delivering rapid pulses of laser energy to the outer layers of the skin. At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we offer both the Rohrer CO2® and Fraxel® laser systems. These fractional lasers work by creating areas of micro-damage to the skin’s surface, removing extremely thin layers. They are ablative lasers, meaning they remove layers of skin to provide intensive resurfacing. The skin cells that regenerate are smoother, brighter, and free of the damaging effects of time and exposure.
How Much is CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
The cost of CO2 laser skin resurfacing varies depending on your provider, location, and the type of laser used. We usually recommend packages of 3 treatments with many skin care products to enhance the results of the treatment. The average CO2 laser 3 treatment package with products, costs about $2,700. These results can last for years, making laser skin resurfacing an investment in your bright, youthful skin.
What Can CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Treat?
We offer CO2 laser skin resurfacing to treat almost any type of skin concern. We can customize your treatment to address your specific issues. We will recommend the laser most appropriate for treating problems such as:
- Skin laxity
- Fine lines
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne scarring
- Rough texture
The depth of the resurfacing determines which skin conditions will respond to the treatment. The most intensive resurfacing can treat deep lines, acne scars, and significant pigmentation concerns.
What is Recovery Like From CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Recovery time will depend on the intensity of your CO2 laser procedure. You will likely experience some redness and peeling as your skin heals. This process can take anywhere from three to ten days. Residual redness can last for several weeks. We will provide you with instructions based on your treatment.
