Reducing the Appearance of Imperfections with Skin Resurfacing
CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing diminishes the appearance of imperfections on the skin’s surface. This type of resurfacing delivers dramatic results, and is the treatment of choice for those seeking the most improvement from one treatment versus a series of more superficial skin treatments.
Our office uses the Syneron-Candela CO2RE laser to deliver small columns of fractionated energy to create tiny wounds in the skin. These wounds trigger the healing process and the formation of new collagen and elastin. This healing process results in a decrease in the appearance of age spots, pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and an improvement in overall skin tone. Full results are seen in six to twelve months. Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing requires approximately a week of downtime for recovery, and strict sun protection before and after the procedure.
During your cosmetic consultation, your provider will determine if you are a candidate for CO2RE laser resurfacing. Patients with certain skin types and medical conditions may be better suited for eTwo Sublative resurfacing or microneedling for skin rejuvenation.
Radiofrequency Skin Resurfacing
We offer Sublative resurfacing and Sublime rejuvenation treatments for skin tightening, contouring, and wrinkle reduction with little to no downtime.
Sublative resurfacing is a professional treatment that uses radiofrequency to rejuvenate the skin. It restores a youthful glow and smooth texture to the skin with minimal downtime. It delivers gentle radiofrequency energy currents that deeply penetrate the skin to stimulate the natural production of collagen. Post-treatment, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced.
Sublative resurfacing effectively treats these common skin problems:
- Lax skin
- Acne scars
- Textural irregularities
- Sun damage
- Moderate wrinkles
- Loss of radiance
Sublative treatments are safe for use on virtually all skin types. During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters the skin. After treatment a pink or red “sunburn” appearance is common. Typical protocol is 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. Treatment areas include face, including around the mouth and eyes and/or neck.
Sublime skin contouring is a non-invasive wrinkle treatment that combines bi-polar radiofrequency and light energies to precisely heat the dermal tissue and stimulate collagen production. Heat in the dermis induces collagen synthesis, hence old collagen is replaced with new, more compact and better-organized collagen, giving the skin a less wrinkled and smoother appearance.
Most patients see immediate and ongoing results throughout their Sublime treatment series. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on your skin’s condition. Treatment areas include cheeks, around mouth, jawline and neck.
Sublime treatment is safe and effective for most skin types and requires no downtime. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after the treatment.
