SmartSkin Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment at Carolinas Center for Plastic Surgery
The CO2 laser works by penetrating the skin to remove the outmost layer while treating the deeper dermal layer with heat. The skin tightens as it heals, smoothing wrinkles and imperfections. The heat of the laser also stimulates the creation of collagen, giving skin a fuller and more youthful look.
This rejuvenating and resurfacing effect is an effective way to eliminate wrinkles and look years younger, without surgery. A Fractional CO2 Laser can also treat:
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Brown spots
- Large pores
- Acne and other facial scars
- Crow’s feet
- Aging hands
- Neck and chest discoloration or wrinkles
The procedure typically lasts from 20 minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated. After the treatment, patients look like they have a deep sunburn. Downtime is 4-5 days, with the skin fully healing after 10-14 days. Some patients experience mild itching and swelling during this healing time.
You will experience results as soon as the skin heals, but many notice continued improvement for months following the procedure thanks to an increase in collagen production.
