Your CO2 laser resurfacing procedure will be performed entirely in one of our soothing treatment rooms. We will begin by cleansing your skin, applying a local anesthetic and giving you eyewear to protect you from the light of the laser. We will then apply the laser to your treatment areas, carefully removing damaged skin cells while heating the deepest layers of your skin to promote the growth of fresh, healing collagen. Thanks to the local anesthetic, you can expect this process to be completely comfortable and virtually pain-free.
Once the procedure is complete, you will begin the recovery period. This healing process is critically important, because it’s when your new skin grows in and your beautiful results appear. You can expect the entire recovery process to last a couple of weeks, during which time your skin will appear red and flaky while the damaged outer layer falls off and a fresh, smooth and visibly less damaged layer emerges.
