CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
Reduce Facial Flaws with C02 Laser Skin Resurfacing
Most models in fashion magazines don’t have perfect skin. While we can’t airbrush your facial imperfections like magazines do, Dr. Anne Nickodem uses C02 laser skin resurfacing in Annandale, VA, to revitalize your skin and correct:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Ruddy or uneven complexion
- Large pores
How Laser Skin Resurfacing Works
Laser skin resurfacing targets beams of light to specific sections of the skin to remove damaged layers of the epidermis (outer layer of skin) while heating the dermis layer (the skin underneath) to stimulate new collagen growth. The C02 laser uses high power, short pulse durations at precise locations to achieve the softest, smoothest and clearest skin possible.
Side Effects of Laser Skin Resurfacing
Side effects of C02 laser resurfacing can include swelling, redness, scarring, pigmentation changes or infection.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Downtime
Expect to have skin that looks and feels like a mild sunburn for about a week or two after a C02 laser treatment. The skin may remain pink or red for several months. Your rate of healing will depend on your own unique skin type and how many areas are treated.
