SmartSkin® CO2 Laser Before & Afters
What concerns can the SmartSkin® CO2 laser treat?
SmartSkin® CO2 laser can be performed on the face (including around the eyes and lips), neck, chest, arms and hands. It features many benefits, including:
- Skin that’s brighter and more glowing
- More even skin tone and texture
- Softened fine lines and wrinkles
How does SmartSkin® CO2 laser work?
SmartSkin® CO2 laser’s ablative, fractional technology delivers micro-beams of energy that extend through the skin’s epidermis into the dermis while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. It triggers the body’s natural healing response to clear away damaged skin cells, as it helps create new, healthy skin cells and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. The result: younger, smoother-looking appearance.
What should I expect during a SmartSkin® CO2 laser treatment?
A topical anesthetic is generally applied before the procedure, so most patients report feeling very little pain during the treatment itself. Some patients do report feeling heat and tingling sensation as the laser scanner moves across the face. The entire face can be treated in less than 30 minutes.
What’s recovery like?
Since the SmartSkin® CO2 laser delivers micro pulses of energy, you will experience a significantly shorter recovery time than you would with fully ablative lasers. You can expect anywhere from 3-10 days of downtime depending on the intensity of the treatment. Most common downtime is 4-5 days with red and swollen skin.
How many SmartSkin® CO2 laser treatments will I need?
Typically, only one treatment is needed for desired results. However, since treatments can be adjusted to your cosmetic and downtime expectations, you can opt for two or three fewer intense sessions. The best course of treatment will be determined during your consultation process.
Available in Pittsburgh, Fraxel® laser treatment, the latest advancement in fractional technology, is the ideal laser treatment for people with active lifestyles who want to improve skin tone and texture without the downtime or redness associated with other laser skin resurfacing treatments.
