CO2 LASER RESURFACING PROCEDURE

As today’s image-conscious population matures, greater numbers of patients are seeking procedures to eradicate or minimize photo-damaged skin and the ravages of time that cause skin to appear older.

Fortunately, there are several technologies to meet the aesthetic needs of your patients, from the gold-standard of laser resurfacing with its broadened utility to the latest generation of non-ablative skin treatments using Intense Pulsed Light, as well as the complementary finishing polish achieved with microdermabrasion techniques.

As featured in Elle Magazine, WebMD calls the Fractional CO2 laser the Number One Anti-aging breakthrough of the decade. In the article, the authors explain that CO2 laser delivers powerful results without the traditionally harsh side effects.
Laser resurfacing is a precise, effective, and long-lasting method of skin rejuvenation. The carbon dioxide (CO2) laser precisely and evenly ablates the surface of the skin, layer by layer, permitting clear definition of landmarks and optimal depth control—a valuable tool for treating a range of aesthetic conditions, including wrinkles, aging or tired eyelids, and acne scarring.

Dr. Kristin Tarbet uses Lumenis Ultra Pulse Fractional Laser to eliminate moderate to deep lines and creases due to aging and photo-damage.  Co2 Laser skin resurfacing is a tried and true approach to skin rejuvenation, precisely removing layers of skin to correct fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and smooth skin, soften pucker marks, and repair skin discoloration. The results of laser resurfacing are generally quite dramatic and long-lasting.
