This quick, low-risk treatment is ideal for addressing issues on the face, neck and chest. Find out why many celebrities and everyday people are using this treatment to achieve youthful skin.
Why Winter is the Best Time of Year to Get CO2 Laser Treatments
The period after fall ends is a great time to get skin treatments because you will be out of the sun and able to focus on giving your skin the nourishment and attention it needs to heal and repair. In addition, this is a time of year to start looking forward and begin thinking about looking your best for spring and the upcoming bathing suit season. It’s a smart idea to be proactive about getting skin treatments done in the early part of the year to avoid trying to cram in treatments just before summer vacations kick off. CO2 laser treatments may help you correct and repair the following:
- Age spots
- Liver spots
- Fine lines
- Dull skin tone
- Thinned collagen
- Skin laxity
- Textural issues
CO2 laser treatments are ideal if you’re interested in getting the best results from a single-visit treatment. This type of treatment does come with a healing time of seven to 14 days. However, it has the impact of receiving multiple treatments at once. The majority of patients only need one CO2 laser session to see the results they want.
How Do CO2 Laser Treatments Work?
A CO2 laser operates using fractional resurfacing that removes layers of skin tissue in columns. This method allows the skin that surrounds each column to facilitate the healing process. CO2 laser treatments done here at our new office in Alpharetta typically takes less than an hour to be completed.
What to Expect From CO2 Laser Treatments
You may be wondering what to expect if you visit us here at LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic to have a CO2 laser treatment done with Jean Chapman, M.D. This is an in-office procedure. A topical anesthetic or local anesthetic can be used. Medications can also be used to reduce any discomfort that a patient may feel during or after the procedure. There is a recovery period following a CO2 laser treatment. Most patients report a feeling that is similar to sunburn for about 12 to 48 hours following a procedure. This is one of the reasons why waiting until after fall and the holidays are over to have a CO2 laser treatment done can be a smart idea. Winter is a perfect time to schedule a CO2 laser treatment because you will be able to recover in peace. In addition, you won’t have to worry as much about avoiding the strong sun while your skin heals.
