CO2 laser

Our Acupulse laser is a fractional CO2 laser. It is a true laser in which the results are the greatest and permanent. The AcuPulse allows for advanced treatment of a variety of severely damaged skin lesions which require synergistic coagulation and ablation for advanced resurfacing. The accupulse (The Acuscan 120) treats deep acne scars, irregularities, actinic keratosis, deep and fine wrinkles, and skin furrows and uneven pigmentation.

If your skin is showing its age with more noticeable fine lines and wrinkles or you have acne scarring or active blemishes, fractionated CO2 laser skin resurfacing can help you regain your skin’s youthful appearance.

What is Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Using a CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser, the cells on the surface of the skin are ablated (destroyed) in a fractionated pattern, meaning columns of skin cells are removed leaving the surrounding skin cells intact. This results in faster healing times and less complications. This process promotes the development of new skin cells and new collagen while shrinking pores and improving the texture of the skin.

After the skin’s surface is fully healed, it will be smooth and have a beautiful, youthful glow. Several areas can be treated by the laser including upper and lower eyelids, the entire face, neck, and chest.

Am I a Good Candidate for CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

Most people are good candidates for this procedure. People who have sun damage, acne scars or active acne, or wrinkles and fine lines are good candidates for CO2 laser, especially if they have light skin.

However, some people are not good candidates. For example, people with darker skin tones or olive-toned skin may not be candidates for the procedure but this will depend on the condition being treated. Even if you are not a candidate for CO2, Dr. Lenamond has multiple options for skin resurfacing which allows her to treat all skin types and skin conditions. Consultations are necessary to determine what treatment is best for your skin.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing Recovery Time & Results

The effects of the procedure continue to work up to 6 months depending on the size of the treatment area. You can expect the procedure to take up to two hours depending on treatment area(s). Most cases only require one treatment to achieve the desired results; some require 2 or 3 treatments for additional improvement with deep wrinkles or scars. Side effects include mild to moderate discomfort. We can use a numbing cream and prescribed pain relievers to alleviate moderate to severe pain.
