Unveiling Youthful Radiance
Resurfacing the skin is a great way to strip away years of sun damage and address age-related concerns such as fine lines, large pores, and acne scarring.
If you are interested in a dramatic result and are willing to tolerate a brief downtime, CO2 laser resurfacing could be an ideal choice.
The cutting-edge CO2 laser resurfacing technology at Stone Surgical Arts in Westlake, TX, provides dramatic skin rejuvenation, improving textural issues and firming the skin for a tighter, smoother, and brighter complexion.
Fractionated CO2 lasers deliver intense, short microbeams of heat energy to the deeper skin layers, kickstarting the skin’s natural reparative abilities. New collagen begins to flourish, and the skin becomes tighter and smoother as a result. Fractional lasers also target discoloration without stripping away layers of skin like an ablative laser would.
Revitalize and Rejuvenate
CO2 laser resurfacing is an excellent way to improve fine lines, moderate wrinkles, dark spots, acne scars, enlarged pores, and sun damage. It comes with a brief downtime of ten days, so you can get back to your usual daily activities without taking weeks off work. Our state-of-the-art CO2 lasers are fully customizable, targeting your exact skin concerns with minimal damage to the surrounding tissues. You can use CO2 resurfacing to rejuvenate the skin nearly anywhere on your body, including your face, neck, décolletage, shoulders, arms, hands, abdomen, and legs.
You may be a prime candidate for CO2 laser resurfacing if you have moderate textural or tonal concerns. CO2 lasers work well on Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-III. However, it is not for patients that are pregnant, nursing, or have an active infection or sores at the treatment site. You might not be a candidate if you have a history of bleeding disorders, seizures, or photosensitivity.
In Expert Hands
Your aesthetic specialist will review your goals, medical history, and skin type and ask about the aesthetic concerns that bother you most to determine if CO2 laser resurfacing or alternative treatments are a match for you. Preparing for CO2 laser resurfacing may include avoiding aggressive skincare products and Accutane, starting prescribed antibiotic or antiviral medications, and planning to take up to ten days off work to recover. You will also need to arrange a ride home.
Efficient and Comfortable
Our CO2 laser treatment in Westlake takes approximately 30 minutes to an hour. Your aesthetic provider will apply a topical numbing agent. Depending on the depth of the laser settings, they may also administer a nerve block or oral sedation before your treatment begins. They will work the device over your skin in a grid-like fashion. It should not feel painful, but you will likely feel a sting or warmth as they pulse the laser over your skin. Once completed, they will apply Vaseline or Aquaphor. Then, you’ll return home to begin your recovery.
Someone may need to drive you home. Your skin may look and feel badly sunburned initially.
Swelling, redness, and crusting are usually worst during the first 48 hours, but can last several days. Light peeling and oozing may occur. Allow seven to ten days before returning to work and wearing makeup. You can apply cool compresses as needed in the meantime. Be sure to keep your skin moisturized with an occlusive as instructed. After a week or so, you can switch to a bland moisturizer. To help prevent hyperpigmentation, avoid sun exposure until fully healed. After two weeks, apply a broad-spectrum sunblock (SPF 30 or greater) daily. Plan to return to Stone Surgical Arts ten days later so your provider can monitor your progress. It can take several weeks to months for the full benefits of your CO2 laser treatment to unfold, but the results are usually well worth the wait.
