Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most popular aesthetic cosmetic procedures. It corrects troublesome skin problems that arise because of cumulative sun damage, genetics and even nutritional factors. Additionally, over time, a gradual loss of collagen thins your skin and fine lines and wrinkles form, age spots appear and your skin tone changes. At Creative Image, we use the SmartSkin Fractional CO2 laser, a fast, revolutionary treatment with little downtime that exceeds our client’s expectations.
How does the SmartSkin Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing work?
The SmartSkin CO2 laser uses high-energy pulses of CO2 light to reach deep into your skin’s sub-layers, treating the aging support structure. As these areas heal, new younger-looking skin is revealed. Your body’s natural healing process sweeps away the older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin – the crucial building blocks of smooth, youthful skin.
What conditions does it treat?
SmartSkin CO2 laser resurfacing targets:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown and lipstick lines
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
It can also treat other areas of the body, such as the hands, arms, and décolletage.
How many treatments are necessary?
The number of treatments can vary depending on allowable downtime and expectations. You may opt for one treatment with more downtime or two or three treatments with minimal downtime. Downtime is usually two to seven days depending on the intensity of treatment.
What does a SmartSkin CO2 laser resurfacing procedure feel like?
The treatment is done in our Brownwood office and requires pre- and post-treatment medications to ensure proper healing and comfort during the procedure. Discomfort varies on the depth of the treatment. For your comfort during treatment, we may apply a topical anesthetic or inject local anesthetic. We will prescribe sedative medications to reduce discomfort following the procedure. Immediately after the treatment, your skin will feel warm and look moderately sunburned. Most patients describe the post-procedure feeling as similar to a sunburn. Your body naturally starts working by replacing the aged skin cells with new. Within the first few days, you will notice a more even skin tone, smoother texture, and healthier looking skin. Call us today at 325-641-1927 to set up your Consultation to see if CO2 is right for you.
How long will the results last?
The treatment will set back clock but the clock continues to tick. Aging depends on various factors such as genetics, smoking, skin care regimen and sun exposure. These will be different for everyone, so the length of time the treatment will last will also vary. Generally, results are long-lasting and, with proper skin care, can last for many years.
What is recovery like?
There will be some swelling and redness after the procedure. It is recommended that you take at least a week off work to rest and let your skin heal. After a week, you can usually venture out in public, but your skin will be pink and will very sensitive for one to three months. You must avoid exposure to the sun and apply sunscreen.
How much does the treatment cost?
The average cost depends on each patient’s unique needs and treatment. We can discuss this with you at your consultation. We offer CareCredit healthcare financing for your convenience.
