If you want to reverse the signs of aging, you should consider the benefits of fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing.
Removes Unwanted Wrinkles
If you want to remove unwanted wrinkles, this is one of the most effective procedures available. When collagen in the skin is destroyed by the elements, laser resurfacing can stimulate the growth of collagen and reverse the signs of aging. In addition to wrinkles, it can also eliminate sun spots, fine lines, and poor texture.
Minimal Recovery Time
Fractional CO2 laser requires minimal recovery time. Most people recover within four days and can look restored in one or two sessions. After the initial procedures are complete, the effects can last between eight to 10 years.
The side effects are minimal with fractional CO2 laser resurfacing. They usually include redness and swelling for two days. After the initial swelling, the effects subside, and a glowing complexion is revealed.
Replace Your Medical Grade Peels
If you use laser resurfacing, you can replace your medical grade peels because it will also remove the damaged epidermal layer of the skin, which will stimulate collagen production. The complexion will appear brighter and more vibrant and have the same effects of medical grade peels. The Microlaser Peel is often considered the medical equivalent to the medical grade chemical peels that are offered to patients.
Laser skin resurfacing carries shorter healing times if profractional laser technology is used in place of CO2 lasers. Why? They only target specific zones of the skin and do not penetrate the entire surface of the skin. The procedure is also less risky because it’s targeted and doesn’t penetrate the entire surface. The micro-beams of light create micro-channels that are designed to penetrate the dermal layer of skin and accelerate the healing process. It usually requires two to four treatments to achieve the desired results.
