CO2 Laser Resurfacing
in Bucks County, PA, and Hunterdon County, NJ
Cosmetic surgery procedures can be invasive and time intensive, and for some patients, they still don’t provide the best results. CO2 laser treatments are a type of laser skin resurfacing that target unhealthy cells while leaving healthy cells intact. These treatments can target fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and other skin conditions, including those related to aging or sun damage.
What are CO2 Laser Treatments?
CO2 laser treatments use carbon dioxide laser beams to penetrate the skin. This advanced laser technology targets deeper layers of skin, allowing the skin to naturally remove specific damaged layers. Collagen production is stimulated, which allows new cells to replace the damaged cells, resorting in a fresher appearance.
Benefits Of CO2 Laser Resurfacing
Laser treatments can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions. CO2 laser treatments excel at reducing deeper wrinkles and changes in skin texture due to sun exposure. Blotchiness in skin tone, acne scars, and surgical or traumatic scars can also be greatly reduced using CO2 laser treatments. In some cases, it can be used to reduce precancerous growths.
The advantages of CO2 laser rejuvenation treatment include:
- Treats delicate areas around the eyes and mouth
- Appropriate for darker skin tones
- Reduced risk of infection
- High precision technique for very specific treatment areas
- Can be used on the face, neck, chest, arms and legs
- Safe alternative to cosmetic surgery
