SKIN REJUVENATION WITH ADVANCED CO2 LASER TECHNOLOGY
STIMULATING YOUR SKIN FOR REJUVENATION
At Northwest Face & Body, our board-certified physicians perform CO2 laser resurfacing in Kirkland to reverse the signs of aging using light energy to rejuvenate and correct skin irregularities. The gold standard in skin rejuvenation is carbon dioxide (CO2) laser resurfacing, which has the best ability to tighten skin as well as prevent skin cancer and precancerous lesions.
As we age, collagen – the connective tissue that keeps your skin soft and supple – begins to break down. This process is accelerated by environmental factors such as sun exposure and pollution. If you’re motivated to improve the appearance of your skin, you may want to consider CO2 laser resurfacing at Northwest Face & Body.
CO2 laser resurfacing in Kirland is used to treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Age and sun spots
- Skin texture
- Uneven skin pigmentation
After completing treatment, your own collagen will be stimulated to produce smoother and firmer skin, resulting in a more refreshed, younger appearance.
Your Skin Treatment
Performed under general anesthesia, the CO2 laser vaporizes the upper layers of damaged skin with precise and controlled penetration. While laser surgery was introduced more than 40 years ago, using it in combination with computer scanning technology is a recent advancement that achieves remarkable results.
Because the CO2 laser beam is computer controlled, our qualified surgeons are able to perform complex micro-procedures with far greater accuracy than is possible with mechanical instruments. Our physicians will deliver pulses of laser energy using a handheld device to the treated area. As the laser passes, it penetrates through the outer layer of skin, removing the damaged skin cells while stimulating healthy skin cell growth.
Laser surgery is very safe, has less post-operative pain than traditional surgery, and can be completed in less than one hour.
With any resurfacing, the first 24 hours is imperative for healing and any sterile surgical dressing should remain in place. You will be provided with topical ointments to enhance your healing, and within eight to 10 days, you should be able to return to your normal daily actives. Your fresh, new skin will be reddish pink. This is a sign that your blood is nourishing the growth of new skin cells.
If you receive a moderate to deep resurfacing, the redness will fade and your skin should take on a slightly pink tone within four to 12 weeks. Your skin will gradually gain a more natural color over several months as collagen growth and rejuvenation continues. If you receive a light resurfacing, four to five days of recovery should be expected and redness will disappear within three to five weeks.
To further aid in your healing process, it is always important to adhere to your board-certified physician's post-operative care instructions.
