There are many anti – aging treatments which can help to minimize the signs of aging. Among the device based therapies, CO2 Laser skin resurfacing is the gold standard treatment to fade away the lines and wrinkles formed in the skin.
CO2 laser treatment works on both superficial as well as the deeper layers of the skin. Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing sends microscopic light beams to the skin. These beams penetrate in tiny columns down into the dermis of the skin. This process makes the deep skin layer to stimulate collagen production, its remodelling and tightening. In the superficial skin layers it can fade away sun damage, improve skin tone, texture and treat fine wrinkles.
Numbing cream is applied for 1 hour and after that it takes 30 minutes to do full face skin resurfacing.
There will be redness, swelling on the treated area immediately following the procedure. This might increase for 1-2 days and then it starts to subside and complete healing might take 4-7 days depending upon the body healing response and indication of treatment. Take absolute sun protective measures, use mild face wash, skin repair creams and sunscreen, and maintain good hydration after the procedure.
Skin continues to show improvement for 4-6 week after the procedure.
It depends upon the indication but generally 3-6 sittings are required.
So don’t get depressed if your face is looking older then you, go ahead for laser resurfacing and show up your natural best.
