CO2 Laser Resurfacing

In Denver and Lone Tree, Colorado

Lasers have become very popular and are known to be very effective in the fight against wrinkles and sun damaged skin. Laser skin resurfacing using the CO2 laser can offer many advantages. CO2 laser resurfacing is a procedure performed for the purpose of wrinkle improvement, facial skin tightening, acne scar improvement, or the treatment or removal of skin lesions. The carbon dioxide laser emits an intense beam of light that vaporizes a very thin layer of the abnormal skin surface. During the healing phase, healthier, more organized skin components are deposited, thus improving the appearance and health of the remaining skin. Additionally, the heat from the laser causes  the skin components to shrink up to 25%, thus causing a tightening of the treated skin. New cells form and collagen increases as the tissues heal, revealing smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin.

After laser treatment the skin will appear red like a deep sunburn. The redness will last for 7-10 days or up to several months depending on your skin type and healing. The skin will continue to improve as new cells, collagen, and elastin increases. The procedure is ideal for both men and women and is good for fair and olive skin tones. Darker skin tones should be discussed with the surgeon. A private consultation is the best way to evaluate your skin characteristics to decide if laser resurfacing is right for you.
