Professional anti-aging treatments have come a long way over recent years. No longer are you limited to restore a healthier and younger appearance through surgery. Board certified plastic surgeon Steven S. Carp, M.D., F.A.C.S of Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center in Green and Beachwood, Ohio, specializes in non-invasive and minimally-invasive treatments to give people in and around Akron, Cleveland and Canton solutions to fight aging.
Are You Ready to Restore Your Skin to an Age-Defying Beauty Level?
Collagen is one of the most important substances that keeps the skin looking young and healthy. It is a key protein that helps to maintain the elasticity of the skin. As people age, they produce less collagen. Things such as UV rays and air pollution can change the color of the skin and also lead to premature aging, creating wrinkles and fine lines.
If your skin is not as healthy and smooth as you would like it to be, you may want to consider CO2 laser skin resurfacing. This is a highly effective and cutting-edge treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin.
What Is CO2 Laser Resurfacing?
This treatment has been designed to help individuals who are looking for wrinkle free, toned, and younger looking skin. The CO2 laser resurfacing treatment we offer is one of the most effective options available for resurfacing facial skin. This can help individuals who are dealing with acne, blemishes caused by UV rays, and most other forms of facial skin damage.
The powerful lasers used in the CO2 laser resurfacing treatment will vaporize a microscopic layer of skin that is problematic, instead of working on the entire face. Amplified waves of carbon dioxide are used, and will not damage surrounding soft tissue. This means that there is less healing time for our patients.
Why Consider CO2 Laser Resurfacing Treatment?
There are a lot of options that are available for individuals who would like the appearance of their skin improved. However, CO2 laser resurfacing is one of the most beneficial options. It is safe and reliable and is delivered in a precise manner. For this reason, Dr. Carp prefers the system.
CO2 laser resurfacing treatment can provide long-lasting and safe results for the following:
- Skin damage that has resulted from acne scars and the sun
- Irregularities in the texture of the skin
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Pigmentation issues and lesions in the skin
CO2 Laser Resurfacing Procedure
Laser treatments are being used in the medical community for a variety of different treatments, including ones used for cosmetic and aesthetic purposes. When it comes to treating lesions, wrinkles, and other blemishes, Dr. Carp will use a specialized device that delivers high energy laser treatment to the skin surface. This device will only treat the top layer of the dermis, leaving everything underneath it undamaged. The lower layers are heated, which stimulates the skin to produce new collagen fibers. The result is that when the skin grows back, it is normally much younger looking.
A moist dressing will be applied to the area that was treated as soon as the procedure is over. This will help to speed up the healing process. The healing and recovery process are of particular importance. Dr. Carp will provide specific instructions that can be followed so that you can have the best results.
It may be necessary to do multiple laser resurfacing treatments in areas that are especially problematic. It is necessary for individuals who receive this treatment to keep up with a daily skin care routine to maintain their results. This includes using products specified by our team, protecting the skin from pollution and UV rays, and cleaning your face each day.
Is CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Right for You?
The CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment is tailored for each one of our patients. For this reason, it is important to schedule a consultation with Dr. Carp to find out if this treatment is right for you.
How Long Will My Treatment Take?
The treatment usually takes about 30 minutes. However, the timeframe is going to depend on the types of blemishes that are treated.
What Does the CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment Feel Like?
Individuals who have tried this treatment report feeling a warm and sharp feeling followed by the tightening of the skin. It is also likely that you may feel as if your skin has been slightly sunburned. Your face may experience increased sensitivity. Our staff can provide cooling anesthetic ointments to help improve your comfort.
How Do I Care for my Skin After the Treatment?
It is important to avoid exposure to sun and pollution for the first couple of days after the treatment. Also, the topical ointment can be applied as needed to relieve any feelings of discomfort.
