The Lumenis Fractional CO2 Laser is the platinum standard for laser resurfacing. This laser treatment can improve the texture and reduce the appearance of sun damage and common, unwanted signs of aging in eyelids, face, neck, chest, and hands. Patients can expect skin tightening after just one treatment. This treatment is great for reducing the size of pores, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, as well as acne scars. The CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment takes just about 40 minutes to complete (for a face treatment) and the recovery time is typically less than a week. Patients can expect to see additional collagen growth for up to 6 months following the procedure, as well as long-lasting results for years to come.
Ideal candidates for this treatment have some sun damage or signs of aging. Patients who’ve taken Accutane in the past 12 months or have a history of keloid scarring should not undergo treatment.
