What is CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
CO2 laser skin resurfacing is an advanced cosmetic treatment that uses controlled laser energy to remove damaged layers of skin, allowing for fresh, vibrant skin to grow in its place.

This versatile laser allows us to customize treatment for each patient, which enables us to address each patient’s specific cosmetic concerns at the intensity best suited for their skin.
Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Be Used for Wrinkle Treatment?

Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Be Used for Melasma Treatment?

Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Be Used for Skin Lesion Removal?
Laser skin resurfacing is an excellent option for skin lesion removal. With this technique, we are able to precisely target the desired lesion without damaging any of the surrounding skin. This makes it a popular alternative to techniques like excision, which are difficult to perform without harming the healthy skin tissue around the lesion.
What is the ActiveFX Treatment?
The ActiveFX treatment is a basic laser skin resurfacing treatment that is great for patients looking for a rejuvenation solution that requires minimal downtime. This treatment carefully removes damaged skin layer by layer, eliminating discoloration, wrinkles, and scars. Afterwards, patients enjoy smooth, healthy skin and full recovery within a week.
What is the DeepFX Treatment?
The DeepFX is a more aggressive treatment than the standard ActiveFX, as it penetrates the skin at a deeper level. This allows patients to treat more severe cosmetic concerns, including scars, lesions, wrinkles, and discoloration. Although it is more effective at treating these symptoms, it will also require a slightly longer recovery period than ActiveFX.
What is the TotalFX Treatment?
TotalFX is a laser skin resurfacing treatment that is best suited for patients with acne scarring and sun damage. It combines multiple laser wavelengths to provide complete treatment of damaged skin, making it an incredibly effective solution for acne scarring and sun damage. This brief procedure can produce impressive results in just a few sessions.
What is the ScarFX Treatment?
ScarFX is a deep laser resurfacing treatment that is specially designed for the treatment of scars. By penetrating further into the skin, patients can enjoy results that develop much sooner than with other laser treatments. Most patients achieve their desired results in less than five treatments, and enjoy an improvement in the treated area for up to 18 months after treatment.
Is There Downtime After Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments?
Laser skin resurfacing works by removing the damaged, exterior layer of skin, allowing new, healthy skin to grow in its place. As a result, there will be a brief period where the skin is recovering from treatment. This should not interfere with your ability to work or perform other normal activities, but the skin may be red and sensitive during this time, similar to a sunburn. As a result, it is necessary to limit sun exposure as the skin will be highly sensitive to sunlight. Most patients are fully recovered from laser skin resurfacing within a week or two.
When Will I Notice Results from Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing removes damaged skin while simultaneously stimulating collagen production for lasting results. For this reason, patients may not notice results for a few weeks, until the the skin has healed and collagen levels have increased. Some patients notice results within a few weeks, with more significant results becoming visible approximately one month after treatment. In some cases, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve your desired results.
