Aging can do many things to your skin, and if you have been out in the sun a lot, you may see it age even faster with more wrinkles and discoloring. The good news is that you do not just have to sit back and live with these visible signs of aging. There are technologies on the market that can help you take years off your skin. One such technology is Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing with CO2 Laser.
The Fractional CO2 Skin Resurfacing treatment can take years off your appearance by improving your wrinkles and pigments in a dramatic way. In the past, getting these laser treatments would remove an entire layer of the skin and the healing process took quite a long time. However, today, the treatment areas can be targeted so the skin does not have to be completely removed.
Fractional CO2 is a one-time resurfacing treatment that is performed after you get a local anesthetic. You will see great improvements in wrinkles as well as improved discoloration and scarring. The collagen in your skin will also be stimulated so you will also see an improvement in elasticity. This will leave you with firmer, tighter, younger-looking skin.
The recovery takes a bit longer than some procedures and you will have to follow some very specific skin care procedures to get past the recovery phase. Your skin may be covered in bandages for a few days and you will have a pink, sensitive feeling – similar to a sunburn. The entire healing process takes about a month, at which time full results become apparent. Everyone heals differently, so recovery time varies from patient to patient. Once you are fully healed, you will see a large improvement in wrinkles, lines, discoloration and in other areas. The overall result will be skin that looks years younger than it did before the procedure.
