What is the CO2 laser surfacing treatment used for?

CO2 still remains the GOLD STANDARD in skin resurfacing and antiaging. A mild resurfacing treatment, known as the Cool Peel, is a dramatic way to improve the skin’s texture and tone.  Aleta has training to use Tetra CO2 to perform deeper resurfacing for more significant wrinkles, around the mouth and eyes and the entire face to obtain dramatic results. This is generally for someone in there late 40’s to even up to 80’s.  for It is used to:

  • Improve skin tone

  • Eliminate sunspots
  • Smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and deep wrinkles, and sun damage
  • Correct color problems/hyperpigmentation
  • Tighten facial skin
  • Enhance radiant appearance

Where can CO2 laser resurfacing be performed?

Most of our patients utilize the treatment to improve skin texture and tone on the face, but you can also use it on other areas such as the neck, chest, arms, and hands.

Who is a good candidate for CO2 laser skin resurfacing?

Patients who are great candidates for this rejuvenation treatment have realistic expectations regarding the results they can achieve. Patients often want to avoid surgical procedures that can be invasive, expensive, and require extensive downtime and recovery. We first talk to patients during a consultation visit to better understand their needs and decide if this treatment would be appropriate to achieve the changes they desire.

How do I extend the results of my resurfacing treatment?

We recommend specific long-term care instructions to patients who want to protect their investment. Below are a few tips to consider to extend the longevity of your results:

  • Avoid retinoids for the first two weeks after treatment and use gradually at first
  • Avoid sunbathing or direct sunlight without significant skin protection
  • Use sunblock after the skin begins to scab and wear each day
  • Avoid dying treatments such as hair dyes and spray-on tan products
  • Continue to have treatments performed to provide cumulative results if recommended
