Let’s set the scene.
You’ve not been happy with your skin for a while now and have been looking for ways to keep it looking young, healthy and fresh.
You’ve tried all the creams and watched all the tutorials, but nothing seems to be working.
You’ve even started contemplating having cosmetic surgery done to combat the issue but are having doubts over the costs and process involved.
You start to think: surely there must be another option, some magical skin rejuvenation treatment you’ve not been able to find yet?
Introducing CO2 Laser Resurfacing
Well, if the above situation sounds annoyingly familiar, we have some good news for you – CO2 laser resurfacing could be the magical treatment you’ve been looking for.
As its name suggests, this procedure uses specialist CO2 lasers to specifically target and treat a wide variety of skin-related issues, including scars, warts, wrinkles and deeper skin flaws.
This, in turn, offers a huge range of benefits over other forms of treatments, which we are here to discuss with you in this blog post. So, let’s get started.
1 – It Improves Acne Scars & Spots
If you have particularly bad acne or are accustomed to getting a lot of spots, CO2 laser treatment can help significantly improve the scarring associated with both of these issues.
2 – It Removes Wrinkles
Why look older when you still feel young at heart? Thanks to CO2 laser treatment, you can now look as old as you feel and take the quality of your skin back decades in time.
3 – It Offers Uniform Colouration
CO2 laser resurfacing enables your skin’s colour to seamlessly blend into itself, providing you with a uniform colouration that will help improve its overall appearance and firmness.
4 – It Repairs Skin Damage
While on the topic of uniform colouration, CO2 laser resurfacing can also help improve the complexion by repairing sun damage or scarring, after the initial redness associated with the treatment has subsided, and it combats a range of associated issues like rosacea.
5 – It Has A Short Downtime
You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day routine after around nine days post-treatment; a much shorter downtime compared to surgery or other types of treatment.
6 – It Provides Long-Lasting Results
Following the treatment, you can expect results to last for well over a year at least, with new skin collagen continuing to be created for up to three months post-treatment.
7 – It Works on Everyone
The treatment is applicable to a variety of patients – whether it’s an older person wanting to dramatically improve wrinkles and skin tightness, or a teenager looking for improvement in acne scars.
8 – The Pain is Manageable
Generally speaking, there are minimal risks involved for the patient, which are carefully managed, and the procedure itself is tolerable. The sensation is often described as similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin, but the sensation depends on the area of treatment, the depth of the laser and the individual’s pain tolerance.
9 – It’s Targets Specific Areas
Due to the highly specified nature of the lasers involved, CO2 laser resurfacing can target specific areas of the skin to provide a truly tailored treatment option for patients.
10 – It Can Enhance Mental Health
When you look great, you feel great – so, by improving the overall feel of your skin, or dealing with any issues you’re having, this could help boost your levels of self-esteem and confidence.
