Collagen Production &
Cellular Regeneration

CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a cutting-edge treatment that harnesses advanced laser technology to promote collagen synthesis within the body. This vital protein plays a crucial role in enhancing skin structure and reducing the visibility of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage. By stimulating cellular regeneration, the laser facilitates the natural healing process, enabling the body to replace damaged skin cells with healthy ones. The outcome is a rejuvenated complexion characterized by improved smoothness, firmness, and youthful vitality.

What Is CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?

CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a highly effective cosmetic procedure that utilizes carbon dioxide lasers to address various skin imperfections. During the treatment, the laser emits concentrated beams of high-energy light, precisely targeting the damaged outer layers of the skin. This controlled removal of the damaged skin prompts the body’s natural healing response, stimulating collagen production and revealing fresher, smoother skin. Laser skin resurfacing in Morristown targets numerous skin concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, etc.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Corrects:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage and age spots
  • Scarring (including acne scarring)
  • Uneven skin texture and tone
  • Large pores
  • Brown spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dull and tired-looking skin
  • Sagging skin
  • Stretch marks (in certain cases)

What Makes CO2 Laser Unique

CO2 laser stands out among other laser treatments due to its unique wavelength and interaction with skin tissue. The carbon dioxide (CO2) laser emits light at a wavelength of 10,600 nanometers, which is highly absorbed by water molecules in the skin. This absorption causes rapid heating and vaporization of the water within targeted tissue layers, resulting in controlled ablation and removal of damaged skin. The thermal effect also stimulates collagen remodeling and promotes tissue tightening, making CO2 laser a powerful tool for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation with impressive results.

Benefits Of Laser Skin Resurfacing:

  • Stimulates collagen production for long-lasting results
  • Non-surgical treatment with minimal side effects
  • Relatively short recovery period
  • Customizable to meet the specific needs and the desired outcome
  • Natural-looking results based on internal healing

The Treatment Details

During a CO2 laser skin resurfacing session, you will be positioned comfortably, and protective eyewear will be provided. The practitioner will use a handheld device to deliver the laser energy to the targeted areas. The high-energy light beams will precisely remove the outer layers of damaged skin, promoting collagen production and skin regeneration. The procedure may cause a warming or tingling sensation, but topical anesthesia or cooling methods are employed to ensure your comfort. After the session, you may experience redness and mild swelling, which will subside over time, revealing a smoother complexion.

After Treatment

Following a laser skin resurfacing treatment, your skin might look red and swollen for a few days. You should keep the treated area clean and moisturized and avoid sun exposure. Please avoid products that irritate the skin, such as harsh exfoliants or topical agents. You must also use topical creams, moisturizers, and sunscreens to promote healing and protect your skin. After your laser skin resurfacing in Morristown, you will be instructed to avoid direct sunlight and strenuous activities for a few days.

Results & Longevity

The results are seen within a few days to a week after the treatment as your skin heals and rejuvenates. The full results can take several weeks or even months to develop as the skin produces new collagen. The results are long-lasting, with many patients enjoying a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance for years after the treatment. You can maintain the results with proper skincare and sun protection and avoid habits that damage the skin, such as smoking and excessive sun exposure.
