What is CO2 surfacing?
CO2 surfacing is a method of skin rejuvenation in which pulsating beams of light is directed towards the skin which in turn precisely removes the skin layer by layer. This popular procedure is also called lasabrasion, laser peel, or laser vaporization.
CO2 effectively targets both superficial and deeper layers of your skin for a smoother, more even complexion. Harnessing laser energy, CO2 can be used to rejuvenate and resurface the skin in as little as one treatment. This procedure is ideal for scar revision, skin resurfacing, uneven skin tone and much more.
Does laser treatment hurt?
Patients report a mild tingling sensation during the process. To ease the discomfort a mild anesthetic cream can be applied.
Are there any side effects?
Immediately following the procedure you can expect a sensation similar to sunburn lasting a few hours. In the next 7-10 days, your skin will naturally start to flake and peel: all normal signs that the treatment is working to rejuvenate and regenerate your skin.
Can the laser treatment be done with sensitive skin?
Laser treatment is perfectly safe and the use of anaesthetic cream can greatly reduce the discomfort.
