CO2 Laser Treatment

How does CO2 laser treatment work?

Carbon dioxide (CO2) laser treatments use ablative lasers to remove outer layers from your skin. Beneath these layers is a fresh new skin surface free of many of the blemishes and damage that accumulate on your skin’s surface. 

CO2 laser treatment doesn’t just remove the upper layers of your skin; it heats the lower layers to trigger collagen production, which makes your skin stronger and firmer. 

Before the skin resurfacing treatment, the team at Montclair Rejuvenation Center cleanses your skin of oil, bacteria, and debris. They also apply a topical anesthetic to numb your skin to help keep you comfortable throughout the treatment - you will not feel any pain or discomfort. Finally, your provider moves the laser slowly across your skin’s surface in the areas that you specify for the treatment. 

What are the results of a CO2 laser treatment?

Laser skin resurfacing with a CO2 laser provides a drastic improvement in your skin’s tone and texture in just one treatment. It helps minimize specific imperfections and scarring, including:

  • Dark spots
  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Large pores
  • Warts

If your primary focus in searching for an aesthetic treatment is dark spots or hyperpigmentation, CO2 laser treatments are a great option. The result is an even and smooth complexion that doesn’t look tired or dull with limited downtime and discomfort.

How long does it take to recover after a CO2 laser treatment?

CO2 laser treatment creates a dramatic improvement, but your skin needs some time to heal. Your skin may be red and, about a week after treatment, your skin gets dry and flaky. The team can recommend gentle protective products to use during this time and measures to protect your skin from the sun as it heals.

After that, it takes another week to go back to normal. Once your skin heals completely, you see a comprehensive improvement in the way it looks and feels.
