Each of us aspires to age with grace, flaunting skin that mirrors our lively spirit. While it's an undeniably universal desire, attaining it often feels like an uphill battle against time. At medAge, we believe in the power of scientific breakthroughs to help you achieve your dream skin. One such breakthrough, an amazing tool that's revolutionizing skincare, is CO2 laser resurfacing.

CO2 laser resurfacing at medAge is an innovative, non-invasive procedure that helps reduce wrinkles, pigmentation, and other skin irregularities, taking you closer to your dream of youthful, glowing skin. Spearheading this transformative journey is Dr. Laura Ellis, a seasoned skin expert renowned for her expertise and finesse in CO2 laser resurfacing.

What is CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

CO2 laser resurfacing harnesses the power of a carbon dioxide laser to remove layers of damaged skin gently and precisely. It stimulates your body's natural healing process to produce healthier, rejuvenated skin. This procedure can be customized to your specific needs, allowing you to target trouble spots and achieve a more consistent skin tone and texture.

Longevity of CO2 Laser Resurfacing Results

Often, patients ask, "how long does CO2 laser resurfacing last?" And while the answer depends on a multitude of factors including individual skin types and lifestyles, generally speaking, the effects of a single CO2 laser resurfacing procedure can last for several years.

Typically, following the treatment, your skin initiates a regenerative process that takes about 2-3 weeks to complete. This is when you can start seeing the transformative results. But the true magic unfolds over the subsequent months as your skin continues to produce new collagen. This collagen revival contributes to a plumper, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin that can last for years.

It's important to note that skin aging is a continuous process, influenced by various internal and external factors such as genetics, diet, sun exposure, and stress levels. While CO2 laser resurfacing can significantly improve your skin's condition and appearance, maintaining the results requires a consistent skincare routine and a healthy lifestyle.

Why Choose CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

  2. Faster Recovery: While recovery time can vary, most patients typically resume their regular activities within a week or two post-procedure.
  3. Precision: The CO2 laser can be accurately controlled to treat specific skin areas without affecting the surrounding tissues.
  4. Versatility: It can effectively address a wide range of skin concerns, from wrinkles and fine lines to pigmentation and scarring.
  5. Natural-Looking Results: Instead of giving a 'worked on' look, the procedure promotes natural, younger-looking skin by enhancing your skin's inherent capacity for self-repair and rejuvenation.
