What is CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

During a CO2 laser resurfacing treatment, focused light beams are directed at the skin, where they are absorbed by the water in surface skin cells, causing this superficial layer to vaporize. At the same time, the middle layer of skin, or dermis, is heated, causing it to produce more collagen. As both layers heal, fresh skin cells are produced to replace the old damaged layers. This type of laser resurfacing is excellent for targeting specific areas of the skin without damaging nearby tissue.

Benefits of CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

The SmartXide Tetra CO2 is an advanced laser device known for its versatility and precision in dramatically fading acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, and other types of hyperpigmentation.

The Tetra CO2 also offers a unique CoolPeel treatment, which provides highly targeted ablative skin resurfacing without causing thermal damage to surrounding tissues, meaning less downtime. Because of its flexibility and exceptional results, the Tetra CO2 laser is a good fit for many skin types and concerns.

Am I a candidate for CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

The Tetra CO2 laser’s versatile settings make it ideal for treating a variety of skin concerns— including fine lines, dark spots, and acne scars—as well as providing all-over rejuvenation. At your consultation, we can help you determine whether you are a candidate to safely receive the optimal benefits from CO2 laser resurfacing.

Consultation and Preparation

Before any treatment, you will consult with one of our aesthetic specialists to ensure that the Tetra CO2 Laser is a good fit for you.

After cleansing your skin, your aesthetic specialist will apply a topical numbing cream to minimize any discomfort from the laser. You will then recline comfortably while they carefully guide the device over the skin on your face. During this time, they utilize an advanced Zimmer Cooler which greatly reduces the heat during the procedure and maximizes patient comfort. In addition to using the laser’s different modes to target specific areas of concern, such as wrinkles, sun spots, or acne scars, they will also focus on providing comprehensive rejuvenation to give your entire complexion a youthful, refreshed glow.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

The time it takes for your skin to recover from CO2 laser resurfacing will depend on the settings used in your individual treatment. At your consultation, your provider can help you understand the levels of treatment that are possible to help address your skin concerns, ranging from conservative to aggressive. You can expect your skin to be slightly red and sensitive or to peel for anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Areas of hyperpigmentation targeted by the laser may turn darker before sloughing off. We will give you clear aftercare instructions to promote your skin’s optimal healing during this time.
