With each year that passes, the signs of aging can be more noticeable on your skin. Fine lines, sun spots, discolorations and reduced elasticity change your skin’s appearance, gradually showing your age. At Arcadia Wellness Center, we offer many excellent options to combat aging and we are excited to add one more treatment to our arsenal. If you want to look years younger for 2019, consider the benefits of using CO2 laser resurfacing to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of your skin.
What Is CO2 Laser Resurfacing?
There are many different types of laser treatments available that can help improve the skin. With options like intense pulsed light (IPL) and radio frequency (RF), surface imperfections can be corrected effectively, but they work at a higher skin level. With carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers, resurfacing of the skin is done at a deeper level in the skin. This is an ablative treatment which can have more dramatic results for overall anti-aging benefits.
CO2 laser resurfacing works to restore more youthful skin, affecting many different aspects related to aging. While fine lines and some pigmentation issues can be addressed with other laser treatments, they may require repeated sessions to obtain optimal results. With CO2 resurfacing, several issues can be treated at once and in most cases, only one session is needed. Some of the aging issues treated with CO2 lasers include:
- Deep lines
- Sun or age spots
- Thin or looser skin
CO2 resurfacing removes irregularities on the surface while spurring healing and collagen production deep in the skin. Over the weeks and months after treatment, the skin rejuvenates. Elasticity and tone are improved; scars and pigment issues fade. It can have a dramatic effect, erasing years from your appearance. This innovative treatment is the best one-time procedure for an overall benefit to the youthfulness of your skin.
