Your skin changes dramatically as you get older. Any wounds to your skin, even acne, can leave scars behind. Collagen and elastin levels wane, impacting the firmness of your skin. Sun damage can occur, resulting in blotchy and spotted skin. If your facial skin is showing signs of age, one of the most effective non-surgical procedures is CO2 laser skin resurfacing, which we offer at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC in Atlanta, GA.
The surface skin cells are the most impacted by aging. Skin becomes dull and discolored with age, even with routine exfoliating and skincare. Lines, wrinkles, acne scars, age spots and other changes can make your face look years older, but there is fresh new skin just beneath the surface. For extreme facial rejuvenation, consider the benefits of laser resurfacing to reveal that new skin appearance.
Revitalize Your Skin
Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is an ablative procedure that uses laser energy to remove the top layer of skin cells. It is a more invasive skin treatment than other laser procedures like IPL or mild chemical peels, but it has benefits that these other treatments cannot produce. A significant amount of skin tissue is removed, but this is completed in one session. Patients can address many skin flaws and aging issues in one treatment, versus multiple less invasive procedures. Benefits from fractional CO2 laser resurfacing include:
- Diminished lines and wrinkles
- Fades age spots or hyperpigmentation
- Acne and other scar reduction
- Smoother, evenly textured skin
- Firmer, more youthful appearing skin
Since CO2 laser resurfacing does remove the top layer of skin, it does require healing and recovering time. Most patients will need at least a week to heal – social downtime can be up to two weeks. However, the treatment will stimulate new collagen to be produced and the new skin revealed will look more youthful with better tone, texture and elasticity.
If you want to give yourself the gift of an extreme facial rejuvenation, contact us at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC. Call our clinic in the Atlanta, GA area to schedule a fractional CO2 skin resurfacing consultation.
