Rejuvenate Skin for Summer with a CO2 Laser Treatment
posted on 6/11/2012
If you’re tired of trying to cover up wrinkles, lines, acne scars, or sun-damaged skin, consider undergoing a laser skin resurfacing treatment before summer is fully underway. The carbon dioxide CO2 laser is often used for skin resurfacing treatments that can be performed on an outpatient setting. This particular laser is considered to be the “gold standard” for non-surgical facial rejuvenation and could be just what you need to reverse the effects of aging and get your healthy glow back this season!
Why the CO2 Laser?
The experts at Silk Touch Medspa & Laser Center in Boise, Idaho point out that the carbon dioxide CO2 laser has been a premier skin resurfacing tool for the past decades. Skin specialists and medical spas often prefer this laser over chemical peels and other laser techniques because it tightens the skin naturally while boosting collagen production. Patients enjoy results that are very similar to a mini-facelift but without having to undergo surgery and waiting for incisions to heal.
Silk Touch Med Spa highlights the following benefits of the CO2 fractional resurfacing treatment:
- Reverses the effects of sun-damaged skin
- Eliminates or reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves the texture and firmness of the skin
- Reduces the appearance of acne and other scars
Ultimately, the CO2 laser resurfacing treatment is a powerful skin renewal and rejuvenation treatment. Most people only need one treatment to see results, but your medical esthetician may recommend a series of treatments depending on your goals. Downtime with this treatment is just about three to five days and you may not see full results until a second or third treatment. Still, this is one of the most effective ways to rejuvenate your skin without surgery.
