Why do certain facial cosmetic plastic surgeons often recommend laser skin resurfacing for their patients? Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a highly effective cosmetic procedure that evaporates the outermost sun-exposed portion of the skin, resulting in smoother, more youthful skin. It also stimulates the production of collagen within the skin's dermis, which tightens and restores elasticity.
The carbon dioxide fractional laser treatment instrument, a new generation of laser skin resurfacing system, has both super pulse and laser scanning output functions, which can quickly and accurately perform various fine laser operations, especially suitable for human body plastic surgery and facial cosmetic surgery. The system is equipped with a high-speed graphic scanner, which can scan and output graphics of different shapes, and can provide personalized treatment plans according to the needs of different patients.
Fine lines or wrinkles
Scars caused by acne or chickenpox
Aging or sun-damaged skin
Enlarged oil glands on the nose
There is also evidence that partial CO2 laser skin resurfacing may help to reduce the appearance of burn scars.
As the laser resurfacing first damages the skin and destroys the top layer, you can expect that your skin may take 3 to 7 days to heal and then remain light pink for 1 to 3 weeks.
For 2 to 3 days after the procedure, your skin will have a slight scabbing followed by a slight to moderate redness, like a sunburn, for 1-3 weeks. However, your skin will feel smoother and you will see fewer lines, less blotchiness and more radiance.
Remember, the CO2 laser can be tailored to each patient's individual needs. For patients with more advanced skin ageing and sun damage, treatments can be deeper, resulting in more recovery and longer downtime. For patients with less advanced skin ageing and sun damage, more conservative treatments can be used, resulting in less healing time and downtime.
Although you can see improvement in the texture and tone of the skin within the first week, it will take approximately 3 months for the final results to be apparent.
The longevity of results may vary from patient to patient depending on a number of factors including age, genetics, skin elasticity and level of sun exposure. However, you can improve the longevity of your results by protecting your skin from sun exposure and following a good skin care regimen. Consistent use of sunscreen and a brimmed hat can help you maintain the results of your CO2 laser treatment for many years.
