Carefully applied by Dr. Alex, fractional CO2 Laser resurfacing:

  • Refines large pores

The process

It happens in-office at AE Skin with a hand-held laser tool. The patient's skin is cleansed and an anesthetic cream applied. Comfortable eyewear protects the eyes during the entire treatment.

Typically, a complete treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes. It produces a reddened tone to the skin, similar to a mild sunburn. Some tightening results are obvious immediately; however, optimal changes develop gradually over several weeks to months.

After CO2 laser resurfacing

Right after treatment, the patient should expect to rest at home for a day or two. Ice to the treated areas helps reduce puffiness and  redness,

 and over the counter analgesics manage any discomfort. While laser skin resurfacing is not a permanent "fix," it does produce excellent aesthetic results and is easier than more invasive procedures such as the surgical facelift.

American Society of Plastic Surgeons says that almost a quarter million of these amazing procedures were performed in the US in 2016. About 40 percent were delivered to the 55 and older age group.
