Co2 laser - Auveau
Co2 laser for resurfacing
CO2 Laser Resurfacing is a highly effective way to reduce wrinkles, scars and other imperfections, laser resurfacing in general involves removing the damaged outer layer of the skin. In this way, it promotes collagen production and encourages the skin to replenish itself from the inside out, revealing a smooth and blemish-free appearance.
The earliest forms of laser resurfacing were very effective – but they caused a lot of damage to the skin. After undergoing traditional laser resurfacing, individuals had to face significant downtime and discomfort before their new complexion could emerge.
With the Fractional CO2 Laser by Cutera, all of the benefits of traditional laser resurfacing remain – without the downsides. It’s a much gentler way to rejuvenate the skin and achieve a more beautiful appearance. Though you will still experience some redness while you heal, the Fractional CO2 laser ensures a substantially quicker and more comfortable recovery period.

The fractional CO2 Laser is best suited for light to medium skin tone (Fitzpatrick scale: 1 to 3 for light skin).

What to Expect During the Procedure
To begin your procedure, we will first apply a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout the entire treatment. From there, you will be given protective eyewear to guard your eyes from the light of the laser. We will then apply the Fractional CO2 laser to the areas being treated, removing damaged skin cells and promoting the growth of collagen beneath the surface. Depending on the size of the area being treated, you can expect your procedure to take anywhere from thirty minutes to two hours.
