Co2 Laser Resurfacing for Skin Rejuvenation
What is Co2 laser skin resurfacing?
Carbon dioxide lasers are a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles or uneven skin tone. Therefore this process works by removing thin layers of skin with minimal heat damage from surrounding structures. As a result of the removal of skin, you are now allowing for new cells growth that will give you smoother complexion in as little time possible
Carbon dioxide (Co2) lasers treat:
- Wrinkles (rhytides).
- Linear epidermal nevi (birthmarks).
- Rhinophyma (enlarged oil glands on the nose).
Progress of skin resurfacing lasers
Over the past 30 years, there have been major advances in laser technology. For example the newest technology, now the most popular and effective types of lasers that were used for treating skin conditions like acne or wrinkles can now be found on medical lasers called carbon dioxide (CO2) laser resurfacing machines. For example, Co2 lasers deliver short pulses with ultrafast frequencies to combat tumors from different angles without harming surrounding tissues.
Likewise the new generation of skin resurfacing lasers uses continuous light beams delivered through scanning patterns. As a result, they are better suited towards removing specifically hard spots, such as those located near bones where pencil beam wouldn’t reach.
