FIGHT SUN DAMAGE WITH CO2 LASER

What is Fractional CO2 Laser?

Skin Works Fractional CO2 Laser in Torrance, CA

 

Fractional CO2 is a resurfacing method that utilizes laser beams to create zones of heat injury to the skin. Certainly, this is proven to stimulate the growth of new, healthy skin cells to replace old, damaged cells. As a result, this turnover of skin cells produces collagen, which is just the body’s natural healing process accelerated.

 

How Does It Work?

 

By addressing the skin at the cellular level, we can effectively turn back time on your skin and produce a more youthful and radiant appearance with your natural skin texture. To clarify, CO2 laser applies the power of carbon dioxide to evaporate the top layers of the skin. As a result, these dermis layers tend to accumulate damage over the years, usually in the form of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, and scars.

 

Does Co2 Laser boost collagen production?

 

By removing these damaged skin layers,  the newly treated skin allows the body to create new skin cells rich in collagen. This process addresses small areas of skin at a time, leaving the surrounding skin and tissue untouched. Therefore, CO2 Laser is one of the best skin tightening solutions available for almost all skin tones.

 

Who is a good candidate For Fractional?

 

If you want glowing resurfaced skin, or if you desire to repair your acne scars and severe sun damages, fractional laser is among the best noninvasive resurfacing treatments.

 

Is CO2 Laser Painful?

 

Similar to Intense Pulse Light (IPL), after your Fraxel treatment, your skin will likely look red, peeling, scaley, and feel tender like a sunburn. These side effects on the treated area may subside within a few hours or linger for a couple of days, depending on the depth of your procedure and how your body heals. That is to say, our medical staff will provide you with instructions on how to care for your skin during this vulnerable time. It’s important to keep safe from sun exposure during your recovery period.

 

What is the downtime for the CO2 Laser?

 

Skin Works medical staff will provide you with instructions on how to care for your skin during this vulnerable time, including applications of ice to minimize swelling and topical moisturizers designed to promote healing to the dermis. In conclusion, most patients will not feel comfortable returning to social situations for 3-5 days until these side effects have resolved.
