Treating wrinkles and skin irregularities has never been easier with CO2 laser skin resurfacing. Orlando Plastic Surgery Associates offers CO2 laser skin resurfacing to patients in and around the Orlando and Lake Mary area.
What is a CO2 Laser Procedure?
A CO2 laser uses small columns of fractionated energy to target zones deep in the skin (as opposed to the entire skin surface) to remove tissue in the areas of damage. By creating these small wounds, the surrounding healthy skin helps with healing, making new collagen and elastin. Fractional CO2 resurfacing is a one-time treatment performed with local anesthesia.
Am I a Good Candidate for CO2 Laser Procedure in the Orlando Area?
Not all patients are good candidates for CO2 laser resurfacing in Orlando and Lake Mary. During your consultation, Dr. Johnston will evaluate your skin, lifestyle, and goals to determine if the procedure is appropriate for you.
What Can I Expect From CO2 Laser Procedure?
You should notice mild improvement in wrinkles, discoloration and scarring, and your skin should feel tighter, as well.
How Long is the Recovery From CO2 Laser Procedure?
After the procedure you will feel like your skin is sunburnt. Your skin will be red and sensitive for a day or so and about three days after treatment your skin may peel. The recovery period is often thought of as social downtime – a break from your typical busy schedule. You’ll feel good enough to do daily activities but may not feel comfortable in public due to the appearance of your skin.
