CO2 Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

A non-invasive cosmetic procedure that results in replacement of dull surface cells with fresh, collagen-rich skin.

What is it?

CO2 fractional laser skin resurfacing rejuvenates your complexion by combining the latest of technology and medicine with your skin's natural healing processes. We use a high-energy beam of light to create safe "micro-injuries" in your skin cells, stimulating your skin to shed old, damaged cells and grow new, collagen-rich cells. Collagen is naturally produced by our skin, but production decreases as we age. It is the essential protein in our skin that prevents sagging or wrinkling.

You can think of CO2 laser resurfacing as a wakeup call for your skin cells to restart the healthy production of collagen. This precise treatment removes thin layers of dull skin while stimulating your body's natural skin growth process. This makes CO2 laser resurfacing a highly effective treatment for conditions like age spots, sun freckles, liver spots, fine lines and wrinkles, scarring and uneven skin tone.

What to expect

CO2 fractional laser skin resurfacing is performed in a back-and-forth scanning pattern on the area we are treating. The laser emits blue light beams to remove surface skin cells and promote generation of new, healthy skin, Patients typically experience mild to moderate discomfort during the procedure, which can be well managed with topical anesthesia.

For several days to weeks after your treatment, you may experience redness, swelling, and peeling in the treated area. Please note that downtime is required for this treatment while your skin is healing. We'll provide you with pre- and post-care instructions to help with healing, comfort and results. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve your desired result.

Following treatment, your skin texture, tone and appearance will improve consistently as the full impact of the treatment takes hold. To see if CO2 fractional laser skin resurfacing is right for you, see one of our providers in Batavia, Beavercreek, Bridgetown, Cincinnati, Dayton, Dent, Greenville, Hillsboro, Kettering, Mason, Montgomery, Oxford, Troy, West Chester or Wilmington, Ohio.

We would love to get started on a solution that perfectly fits your needs.
