Laser Skin Resurfacing (CO2 Laser)


Laser Skin Resurfacing | Microdermabrasion | Skin Rejuvenation | Winston Salem NC | Greensboro NCAlso known as “laser peel,” laser skin resurfacing usually takes less than 1½ hours (sometimes just a few minutes) depending on the size of the area being treated. The procedure uses a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser beam which vaporizes the upper layers of damaged skin at controlled levels of penetration. The procedure removes areas of damaged or wrinkled skin often caused by prolonged sun exposure. Laser resurfacing can minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth and the eyes and is also effective in treating facial scars and skin areas with uneven pigmentation.

Dr. Tucker and Dr. Howell are excited to now offer fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing with Lumenis UltraPulse Active, Deep, and Total FX technology for their patients. Traditional CO2 laser resurfacing has proven itself to be one of the most effective treatments for skin tightening and general improvement of skin appearance. Newer, fractionated technology delivers the CO2 laser energy in a manner that allows for reduced downtime for the patient and dramatic results. ActiveFX is designed to treat fine lines, texture, and pigmentary changes (e.g. dyschromia), while DeepFX treats deep wrinkles and scars. TotalFX is the combination of these two modalities, customized for each patient to optimize their result. Treatment is performed in our office, typically with both a topical anesthetic cream and oral medication to make the procedure a more comfortable experience.
