What is the CO2 Laser Resurfacing procedure?

Holistic Plastic Surgery In Nashville

CO2 Laser Resurfacing uses laser energy to create micro-ablative wounds that heal, generate collagen, and transform your skin. A CO2 laser superheats water molecules underneath the skin very quickly, and the collagen you have in your skin contracts. After the initial response to the heat, new collagen is created, and areas of pigment or texture are resurfaced. Modern CO2 lasers preserve micro-columns of healthy, intact tissue in between the micro-channels of energy, which decreases downtime and unwanted side effects.

CO2 Laser vs. other Laser Skin Resurfacing and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Dr. O’Connor in Nashville

Both CO2 and other types of laser skin resurfacing methods aim to rejuvenate and resurface the skin or correct unevenness in pigment.

CO2 Laser treatment is a highly advanced and effective method for high-quality and intense collagen rejuvenation because of its precision. While other laser skin resurfacing methods can provide good outcomes, the micro-abrasions that occur with CO2 offer dramatic results. Due to the nature of CO2, there is sometimes a bit more downtime; however, the level of skin improvement is unmatched.

In the Spotlight: eCO2 Plus

Unique Skills. Compassionate Care.

Serious improvements demand serious technology, and the eCO2 Plus delivers a fractional skin resurfacing option.

This means that very small micro-wounds are made in the skin with unharmed skin left between the treated areas. After the procedure, the intentionally damaged skin produces regeneration on a cellular level providing an outstanding solution for wrinkles, scars, sun damage, and more, while giving a brighter, more even tone and texture.

With less downtime, eCO Tone harnesses the power of a CO2 laser for your skin but with a lighter approach. The eCO Tone heats the tissue immediately below the skin to create just enough energy for a stunning collagen-rebuilding reaction. The eCO Tone can be used for wrinkles, fine lines, pigment issues, and multiple other skin concerns like large pores and skin brightening. eCO tone has little to no downtime.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing Procedure

The procedure will take place in our office in one of our state-of-the-art treatment rooms. Depending on the specific laser and your pain tolerance, we may apply a topical numbing cream, oral medication, or a combination of treatments to make you comfortable. Then, your provider will use the CO2-powered laser on the skin, causing a natural rejuvenation response. Most treatments take anywhere from 30-60 minutes.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing Recovery, Results, and Aftercare

Downtime for one of our CO2 laser treatments is around 2-7 days, depending on the treatment area and how intense your treatment plan is. Typically, with either one, normal activity can be resumed after five days. You should expect some redness and tenderness. Many of our Nashville CO2 laser resurfacing patients experience immediate results with gradual, continued improvement over weeks to months.

CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Frequently Asked Questions

The level of discomfort depends on which type of CO2 laser treatment is used, and every patient is different in their level of pain tolerance. Any possible discomfort can be addressed using a combination of topical and medicinal methods.

You may experience some mild redness or tenderness for a few days after the procedure. Rare side effects include acne flare-ups or pigmentation changes.

Typically, it’s best to wait 2-3 days to ensure healing time, but be sure to check with Dr. O’Connor.

CO2 laser is commonly combined with other rejuvenating procedures like facelifts, neck lifts, eyelid surgery, and nonsurgical procedures to treat aging in all the layers of the skin. CO2 can also be combined with filler. It's best to have some time in between CO2 laser treatments and neurotoxin treatments.

While there is no one ideal age to get CO2 Laser Resurfacing, we typically see great results in those in their 30s-50s. Younger patients can get this treatment, but we recommend it be the gentle, eCO Tone version.

This treatment makes lasting improvement in the skin, but like all things there is no guarantee of permanence. The longevity of your results depends on the level of aggression with your initial sessions, your skin type, and the speed of your unique aging process.

The cost of CO2 Laser Resurfacing varies depending on the area or areas of treatment and the number of treatments needed to balance downtime and desired results.
