Discoloration, wrinkles and fine lines can make you look older than you feel. As we age, collagen production decreases and leads to a breakdown of the skin’s underlying structure. Collagen degradation makes your skin lose its strength and elasticity, resulting in sagging of the skin. Furthermore, there are several threats from the environment such as pollution and UV rays, which can accelerate the deterioration of the skin. The great news is that there is a way you can rewind the clock with a CO2 fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment.
What CO2 Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing Does for You
CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a treatment that helps the body shed damaged skin cells. It allows new, healthy cells to replace the older ones. Treatment with the CO2 fractional laser can erase several years from your face. It also reduces the appearance of wrinkles and skin discoloration so that your skin is left healthier and younger-looking than it did before. In addition, the CO2 laser is often considered the best-built method for decreasing scarring from acne and resurfacing facial skin damage from UV rays.
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
CO2 fractional laser treatment has been used for many years thanks to its safety and efficiency. It is safe for many different skin types and issues such as wound scars, enlarged oil glands on the nose, warts, fine wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, and shallow scars from acne.
The laser uses fractionated CO2 in short ultra-pulse waves of light energy. The light beams are delivered in a scanning pattern so that they can get rid of thin layers of the skin with minimal damage from heat. The laser beams are tiny, allowing the laser to treat only a small part of the skin while leaving healthy skin unaffected.
Advantages of CO2 Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing
The CO2 fractional laser can be used to address several problems for people in all age groups. Healing is also significantly quick with this treatment. It also evens out skin tone, tightens the skin, and eliminates wrinkles. Consequently, it gives an overall younger appearance.
