Treat Sun Damaged Skin With CO2 Fractionated Lasers
The LumenisUltraPulse CO2 fractionated laser is used to perform laser skin resurfacing. A board-certified dermatologist uses the device in order to address issues with sun-damaged skin or dark spots that are the result of aging. It targets the facial area in order to produce smoother skin that is no longer blemished.
Understanding How Laser Skin Resurfacing Works
In the hands of a competent dermatologist, the LumenisUltraPulse CO2 fractionated laser provides patients with a safe and effective way to healthier, more attractive skin.
There is little down time and patients can expect results in as little as two or three treatments.
The LumenisUltraPulse CO2 fractionated laser gently wipes away wrinkles and fine lines that are typical around the eyes and mouth. Laser resurfacing is also effective in softening creases caused by frowning. Acne scars can be improved as well. Other benefits include improvements in pigment and texture, as well as a tightening of the skin that makes the face appear more youthful.
What Will Take Place During the Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure in Calabasas?
Before treatment, your dermatologist will apply a numbing cream to your face. A cooling fan may be used as well. The laser resurfacing treatment takes approximately fifteen minutes. After treatment, the skin that has been treated should remain moist. This is easy to maintain through the use of ointments or bandages. The skin is usually red or pink for the next few days and may have a layer of crust on it. Swelling and tenderness are common. The skin must be protected from the sun during healing, which takes one week to 10 days. Even after the skin has healed, it is advised to wear sunblock that is over 30 SPF to protect the skin and maintain optimal results. With proper care, the skin will continue to look more youthful after laser skin resurfacing is complete.
