Laser skin resurfacing is a noninvasive aesthetic treatment that uses pulsating beams of energy to exfoliate damaged skin cells one layer at a time. This procedure is great for treating facial wrinkles and lines, improving blemishes and pigmentation, correcting acne scars, and more. Fractional CO₂ laser resurfacing is an excellent treatment option for people who want clearer, softer, younger-looking skin with little recovery time.
Some of our patients who have undergone fractional CO₂ laser resurfacing have shared their experiences with us. Please listen to their stories so that you can be more comfortable about your laser skin resurfacing procedure and learn about how this treatment can give you the refreshed, youthful appearance you desire!
Our doctors are specialists in cosmetic treatments and are trained to examine the structure of your face and select a treatment that is sure to bring you the best possible results. If your skin is in need of rejuvenation, utilizing the advanced technologies that fractional CO₂ lasers have to offer may be right for you. We want to make sure you feel calm and comfortable with your procedure, which is why we take the time to explain our advanced procedures and top-of-the-line cosmetic practices.
When our skin isn’t the way we dream it to be, we experience a lack in our self-image and our overall confidence. Non-invasive procedures, such as the fractional CO₂ laser, provide a comfortable and easy solution that will give you the skin you have always wanted without the invasiveness of traditional cosmetic surgery.
Since we personalize each patient’s treatment plan to suit their individual needs, each procedure may vary. However, this is what you can expect when selecting fractional CO₂ laser treatment at The Facial Center:
Here, one of our highly certified and trained surgeons will discuss the results that you want with your skin and how to best obtain them. If fractional CO₂ laser treatment is best for you, we will establish a date for your procedure and provide you with pre- and post-procedure instructions, which you are expected to read carefully and follow closely.
When you arrive at our practice the day of your treatment, you will be greeted by our staff and taken to the proper room to for your face to be numbed, which ensures you will experience minimal to no pain during the procedure. From then, our team of specialists will use the fractional CO₂ laser to remove dead layers of skin tissue and remove the damaged spots of skin on your face while you are at ease and relaxed. The procedure itself will last anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes.
A soothing cream will be applied to your face to aid in the recovery and moistening of your skin cells. You can expect your face to be red and feel like a sunburn. From there, you will be instructed to follow the directions in your post-procedure instructions to avoid direct sunlight for about one week and follow-up with our team to be sure your skin is healing properly. Your skin will remain red as it heals for several days and when the faulty, dead layer of skin peels away, you will be left with a rejuvenated, glowing complexion that you will absolutely love.
