I am having a CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing-Follow Along

Today is the day! I will have the CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing.CO2 3 Ok, I am a bit anxious….I am a certified laser technician and I have performed many of these treatments. So, I know what I am in store for. I will be educating all of your who are curious and posting pictures throughout the process. Here is a list of how CO2 can benefit your skin.

First, the resurfacing laser will remove all the epidermal damage caused by sun and aging. With extreme precision the laser removes keratoses, premalignant lesions, age spots, and epidermal blemishes.

Second, the upper dermis is sculpted smooth by the laser. Deeper wrinkles are reduced or eliminated. Acne scars are reduced and re-contoured. New epidermis will grow from cells within the follicles that have never been exposed to the sun’s damage. This takes just four to five days. Thus, your skin is literally “renewed.”

Third, the laser stimulates the growth of healthy new collagen and elastin fibers within the skin. This will continue for six months after resurfacing. During this time the skin will continue to improve. Fifteen to twenty percent firming can be achieved. Loose eyelids and lax skin is tightened. Resilience and elasticity are restored. Any remaining wrinkles will continue to improve for over six months.
