Laser skin resurfacing can completely change the appearance of the skin for the better. Problems like fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, and acne scars can be effectively treated in a short outpatient procedure. Younique Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa in Santa Monica, California offers customized laser treatment plans using the Active FX CO2 and Deep FX CO2 lasers.
Laser skin resurfacing is a treatment for wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin imperfections. With this type of non-surgical treatment, the damaged skin is gradually removed, a single layer at a time, using highly concentrated laser light.
Laser skin resurfacing is best suited for people who want to eliminate fine lines, blemishes, and acne scars. It's not suited for people with dark skin tones or active acne. If patients can't use laser skin resurfacing for skin rejuvenation, Younique Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa can discuss other effective alternatives with them.
Laser skin resurfacing is done on an outpatient basis, and the length of treatment depends upon both the amount of damage and how many areas are being treated at one time.
Younique Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa uses several different lasers for laser skin resurfacing. The CO2 lasers are highly effective lasers that offer an unparalleled level of precision, accuracy, and control. These lasers vaporize acne scars, facial lines, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections one layer at a time. The Active FX CO2 laser is highly effective in the treatment of fine lines related to aging, sun damage, and sagging facial and neck skin. The Active FX CO2 laser offers short recovery times and excellent results very quickly. The Deep FX CO2 laser treats deep facial lines, wrinkles, and scars. The Total FX CO2 laser is a combination of Active FX and Deep FX, which means it's best suited for even deep lines and significant scars. The Deep FX CO2 and Total FX CO2 do require a longer recovery period than the Active FX CO2.
After CO2 laser skin resurfacing, patients can expect some skin redness for around 2-4 weeks on average. Some patients may experience hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation, although this isn't common in people who are ideal candidates for the CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment.
