A CO2 laser is used to resurface the skin, which can help to reduce wrinkling. This powerful laser is able to penetrate deeper into the skin, to reach layers of the skin that other lasers cannot reach. As a result, CO2 lasers can have a more significant effect on deeper wrinkles. The results of the resurfacing are dramatic, but recovery time will typically take longer.
- Effective treatment for wrinkles and minor scarring
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Long lasting results
- Short recovery time
As with any laser procedure, the treated skin is damaged and therefore, bruising, inflammation, and discomfort are common. The treated area will likely be painful for some time.
Costs range from approximately $2000 for treating a single area to $4000 or higher for treating multiple areas.
