Your face is your outward representation of your inner self. When the effects of the aging process begin to set in, however, that can have a negative impact on how we see ourselves and how we present that vision to others. Fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, sun spots, age spots, and loss of firmness may be making your face appear older than you would prefer.
With the help of the CO2 Laser at Sinclair Plastic Surgery, we can help you restore your skin tone, create a new smooth texture, and remove years from your appearance restoring your self-confidence in the process.
What is CO2 Laser?
The CO2 Laser belongs to the fractional or pixelated family of lasers. It uses intense, pixelated energy to deeply resurface your skin, producing a more radiant texture, reducing the visible signs of aging, and stimulating your body’s ability to produce collagen and elastin.
Deep skin resurfacing requires expertise and artistry, and Dr. Sinclair is unmatched in his ability to provide glowing results. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, he stays on top of the latest cutting-edge techniques, so he may bring those tools to his practice. With the CO2 laser in his capable hands, you will notice that lines and wrinkles are softened, firmness and volume is restored, and your skin will achieve that coveted lit-from-within glow.
How is the CO2 Laser Used?
The CO2 laser uses fractional energy; that is, scattered light beams designed to penetrate deep into the layers of your skin to resurface and revitalize your complexion. When the CO2 laser makes contact with the surface of your skin, it delivers heat to the layers of the dermis, while removing the outermost layers of skin. As old, damaged skin is removed new, fresh skin will begin to form reviving the complexion as it heals.
What Can I Expect During Treatment with the CO2 Laser?
Due to the depth of treatment with the CO2 laser, sedation is used to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Dr. Sinclair and his staff will work to ensure your safety as he uses the CO2 laser to resurface your skin.
The outermost layers of the skin will be targeted with CO2 energy to remove them entirely, eliminating damaged skin cells. The CO2 laser will then deeply stimulate the dermis, enhancing your production of collagen and elastin and providing results that will continue to reveal themselves for months.
What Can I Expect Following Treatment with the CO2 Laser?
Many patients begin to see results within one week of treatment with the CO2 laser. As the skin begins to heal, you may experience redness, bruising, and peeling at the treatment area. Dr. Sinclair will prescribe pain medication to allow your body to heal in comfort.
Since treatment with the CO2 laser is so deep, there is no need to schedule a series of treatments to see results. One treatment is all that is required to resurface your skin and restore youthful radiance.
