Procedure technique during CO2 laser resurfacing
Before you have a deeper or more intense laser peel treatment, you may be asked to use a retinoid product for a few weeks before your appointment. This helps prepare the skin for more effective results. Medication will be suggested prior to the treatment to help lessen any pain or discomfort you may feel during your session. If your skin needs mild correction, a topical anesthetic will be used to numb certain areas the laser will target. For the full face or more intense laser treatments, some kind of sedation may be required.
During the procedure, you will relax in our treatment chair while the laser glides over your skin, precisely targeting the selected surfaces for rejuvenation. You will feel the heat of the laser followed by cold air from its built-in cooling system. The laser works to remove damaged and dead skin cells while also stimulating new collagen production.
