Looking younger for longer is a goal most of us have in common. If only there was a way to turn back the clock on our skin, right? Well, no need to look for the fountain of youth because through laser skin resurfacing, the gold standard in treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes, you’ll look younger with each treatment.

What Is a CO2 Laser Treatment?

 A CO2 laser is an ablative laser that allows us to precisely remove damaged skin tissue. The light penetrates the top layers of the skin creating small areas of thermal damage. This process stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin as the heat energy is delivered. After the skin has healed, CO2 laser treatments can significantly improve fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, skin tone, skin laxity, acne scarring—in other words, pretty much any common facial concern you might have.

What Are the Benefits of a CO2 Laser Treatment?

Here are the top benefits of a CO2 laser treatment:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced: This is achieved by stimulating your skin’s collagen and elastin production, which will make your skin look younger while also reducing the appearance of deeper wrinkles or crow’s feet for a more youthful complexion.
  • Acne scars are diminished: By vaporizing damaged skin cells, a CO2 laser treatment can give your skin a smoother appearance.
  • Skin tone is evened out: Treating sun damage and age spots with a CO2 laser helps achieve a more uniform tone that appears healthier and brighter.
  • Skin texture is improved: Through the gentle but effective action of CO2 lasers, pores will look smaller and more refined while bumps are diminished, so your skin has a smooth and silky appearance.

CO2 laser treatments are the best way to address your long-term skincare needs. This powerful treatment can help you achieve a more youthful look without resorting to surgery.

How Long Do CO2 Laser Treatment Results Last?

Depending on the individual, results may last around one year, although some patients have achieved desirable results for up to five years. Also, it’s important to note that CO2 laser treatments are often combined with other procedures such as PRP injections or hyaluronic acid fillers to maximize their effects. Additionally, a proper skincare routine will help to extend the life of your CO2 laser treatments.

Patients need to remember that CO2 laser treatments are not a quick fix. Instead, they’re a preferred treatment option in conjunction with other nonsurgical approaches.

CO2 laser resurfacing is best done when used along with a medical grade skin care regimen and post procedure products.

How Long Does Recovery Take?

Dr. William J. Vinyard, MD, FACS, and his team of experts will choose the intensity of CO2 treatment best tailored for you depending on your aesthetic goals, skin condition, skin type, and the amount of downtime your schedule can accommodate. We recommend planning for up to two weeks of healing time, depending on the intensity of the treatment.

Typically, with treatments that stimulate collagen, CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing results gradually improve between 3-6 months, with a slow progression of change to a more youthful appearance.

How Much Does CO2 Laser Resurfacing Cost?

The price will depend on the intensity of CO2 treatment required to help you achieve your skin goals. We have several package options at VIPS to meet both your aesthetic goals and budgetary constraints. We encourage you to come in for a complimentary skin evaluation with our VIPS team of experts.
