THE POWER OF LIGHT

Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing

Most patients are candidates for fractional CO2 laser resurfacing. However, a consultation with a skin care expert will allow us to plan a customized regimen for optimal results. laser resurfacing has a positive impact on:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles in the eye and mouth area, as well as on the forehead
  • Scars caused by acne or chickenpox
  • Skin damaged by the aging process or sun exposure
  • Liver spots
  • Certain types of birthmarks

The lasers used for fractional CO2 laser resurfacing are specifically designed to target certain skin flaws, such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and pigmentation problems without damaging the deeper layers of the skin. For the fractional CO2 laser resurfacing procedure, a special device is used to deliver laser energy to the damaged skin. This precise nature of laser energy targets only the problem areas.

As the laser energy is administered, the outer layer of skin is removed and the deeper layer, or dermis, is heated to stimulate the production of new collagen fibers. The collagen creates new skin that is generally smoother and tighter. A moist dressing is applied to the treatment area to help with the healing process. Post-treatment care plays an important role in the outcome of fractional CO2 laser resurfacing. Patients should follow instructions carefully after treatment.

  • After the procedure, your skin may feel warm and appear a little sensitive and pink.
  • Apply an ice pack to the treated area when you get home to accelerate recovery.
  • Avoid using makeup for a week, and then use mineral makeup.
  • Avoid excessively hot water or cold water.
  • Avoid strongly scented lotions or soaps, exfoliating creams, and scrubbing.
  • Avoid picking or scratching at the skin.
  • Apply SPF 30+ sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun.

In some cases, several treatments may be required for best results. While fractional CO2 laser resurfacing does provide long-term improvements to skin tone, texture, and pigmentation, patients are advised to use proper protection against sun exposure and other environmental factors that cause damage to the skin. Daily skin care is also important in maintaining results.

Each patient is unique; therefore, results of treatment may vary.

TESTIMONIALS

“I’ve been a patient of Dr. Garvey for a little more than six months. She has provided me relief from a serious varicose vein issue. I couldn’t be happier or more impressed with her knowledge, skill, and bedside manner. She has my highest recommendation. Her nurse, Eulene, and office manager, Chris, are also wonderful. Thanks to Dr. Garvey and team!”
Al G.

“Dr. Pearl and her staff are amazing. I can’t speak highly enough about them all.”

Christye N.
“Dr. Neckman came highly recommended by my wife, and I was a little nervous on my first visit. She made me feel very comfortable and almost like a sister was looking out for her brother. She explained everything very well and took care of me with speed and compassion. Couldn’t recommend a dermatologist more.”
Tony M.

“Dr. McClure has no peer in his field. Apart from his incredible skill as a surgeon, he is also wise and compassionate, too. He knows when it’s the right thing to do nothing. I would not be alive today were it not for his treatment of my melanoma years ago. My wife and I trust him more than any other doctor whom we have ever known.”

Robert H.

“Dr. Papadopoulos did a wonderful job on my recent surgical procedure on my arm. He made me feel at ease and explained everything to me in terms that I could understand. He was precise and succinct during the surgery, and my recovery could not have gone any smoother. I highly recommend Dr. Papadopoulos for any and all skin cancer surgery.”

Martha R.

“I’ve been Dr. Kim’s patient for over 10 years and she is amazing! I recommend her to everyone and am grateful for the care and compassion she has shown me. Unfortunately, because of my skin, I see her a lot, but she makes visits and procedures as stress free as possible.”

Tara F.
“Dr. Berghoff has been my doctor for years and has identified and repaired significant skin issues on several occasions that could have resulted in serious health issues. I always leave his office feeling like I know what my skin health is!”
John P.
“I have always had the best of care from Dr. Niren. I’ve been going to her since 1986, and I have nothing but praise for her professionalism and the time she spends with me.”
Debbie J.
“I have been going to Dr. Alford for several years. She is great! She is so pleasant and listens to any concerns you may have. She is thorough and professional. I always look forward to seeing her. If you’re looking for a great dermatologist, I highly recommend Dr. Alford.”
