Choosing The Non-Surgical Way To Reach Skin Renewal  

Who is this procedure for? 

Are you someone who has struggled with loving your skin as it changes as you age? This non-surgical method of skin renewal might be the ideal option for you. As we age, we can see wrinkles in places we never thought they’d be. Whether it is wrinkles around your mouth and eyes or even on your hands, the CO2 laser comes in to play a role for anyone who is starting to struggle with the way their skin looks. 

Alongside helping you love the skin you’re in, this non-surgical procedure is excellent for those people who can never seem to stop moving. Even if you do not have time in your busy schedule to plan for a surgical procedure, this is a great way to still get those results you have been searching for. 

What does the process look like? 

The SmartSkin+ CO2 laser revitalization treatment uses its powerful laser technology to refresh the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production. It is most popular on the face; however,  people can also target areas such as the neck, hands, and arms. The laser itself is used in a session to penetrate the skin, helping to clear away the old and damaged cells. Once you have scheduled a consultation, our team can help you decide what areas are most important. There may even be multiple that you want to consider over time! 

How long is the recovery?

The CO2 laser makes your discomfort and recovery time drop dramatically. With surgery, you have to face invasive procedures that require general anesthesia to achieve. The laser can be completed with topical anesthesia only, which makes your recovery even more effortless. Typically patients recover in less than a week. It is dependent, however, on a case-by-case basis as to what kind of results we are trying to obtain. This is something to discuss with your medical professional to see what the expected timeline is after your procedure is complete. 

What are the benefits of the procedure? 

While the noticeable improvement to the areas of skin you choose is the primary benefit of the laser, there are plenty more to come along with it. The procedure gives younger-looking skin without drastic facial changes. So, while you and everyone around you will notice the fantastic results, you do not have to worry about looking like you have a new identity. It’ll be like they ran into you years prior! 

Is this a busy season of life, but you want to see your skin transformed? This non-surgical way to reach skin renewal may be the answer you have been waiting for. Our team is here for you every step of the way along the journey that best fits into your life. There is no reason to wait!
