What to Expect

When you come in for your SmartSkin™ CO2 laser treatment we’ll use numbing agents to prepare the area to be targeted. The adjustability of the laser provides us with the ability to apply a gentler treatment to sensitive areas, resulting in less irritation. The stimulation provided by the treatment will encourage the natural generation of new collagen, helping to reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines even further.

How to Prepare

When you come in for your initial consultation, we’ll begin by determining how to apply the treatment for your optimum results. We may recommend that you come in for multiple sessions, depending upon your goals and the results desired.

To prepare for treatment, patients should avoid sun exposure and self-tanning cream for 4 weeks prior to the treatment, and avoid topical exfoliation for two weeks. On the day of the appointment, be sure to eat and drink plenty of fluids. Avoid using makeup, perfumes, hair products, or lotions.

After the Treatment

Post-operative patients often report having the sensation of a mild sunburn. Keep the skin moist with an approved lotion, and avoid exposure to sun and wind until it has a chance to fully heal. One of the main advantages of SmartSkin™ C02 laser treatment is that the recovery time is reduced in comparison to other traditional treatments. Healing can be complete in as little as 7-14 days, depending upon the area treated, and the depth of treatment.
