C02 Laser Resurfacing

Plump up sagging skin and wrinkles

 

Co2 lasers penetrate the deeper layers of skin, past the epidermis and into the dermis.

The laser is passed several times over the area to be treated. It removes the entire epidermis layer, until it reaches the middle of the dermis, the skin’s second layer. This process helps stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. That helps to plump up sagging skin and wrinkles. When the new skin forms, the discolouration and hyperpigmentation associated with sun damage is greatly diminished or gone altogether.

Some doctors have patients under conscious sedation during this process. This means that the patient remains awake and receives intravenous medications to calm and ease pain. This sedation can also be combined with the application of topical anesthetic creams and local anesthetic injections.

The recovery time from Sharplan Co2 laser skin resurfacing is about two weeks. During that time your skin will scab and peel off, revealing the new, healed skin. After this, your skin will have a red sunburned look that will last anywhere between two to eight months. Your new skin will be tighter, clearer and better looking with fewer, less noticeable wrinkles. Your skin’s colour will look much more even.
