What Is a CO2 Resurfacing Laser Treatment?

Is your skin looking its best? Your doctor can use carbon dioxide (CO2) laser treatment to remove the superficial layer of the skin and start the formation of new skin cells. Dr. Amarpaul Sidhu of Foothill Cosmetic Surgery Center offers many cosmetic treatments, including CO2 resurfacing laser in Glendora, and Rancho Cucamonga, CA, that help you to get radiant skin.

What Is A CO2 Laser?

It is electricity that runs through a gas-filled tube to produce a specific wavelength of light. The light comes in short, concentrated beams. This will target water molecules in your skin cells. The laser removes surface cells in the top layer of the skin and stimulates new collagen production. Collagen firms and smooths skin over time. CO2 laser treatments improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and birthmarks or freckles. They can even treat benign skin growths like warts and some skin cancers.

How Does CO2 Laser Resurfacing Work?

CO2 laser resurfacing uses pulses of light to penetrate the skin’s surface. Water in the skin cells absorbs the light, causing the surface cells to vaporize. The dermis, or middle layer of skin, heats up, stimulating the growth of new collagen fibers. As the skin heals, firmer, smoother skin replaces the old layer. The treatment is precise and only targets key areas to give you the best results.

Who Is A Good Candidate for CO2 Laser Treatment in Glendora, and Rancho Cucamonga, CA?

The ideal candidate for this treatment has a fair to medium skin tone and wrinkled, sun-damaged, or scarred skin. If you only have fine lines or mild discoloration, you could benefit from less intense treatment options.
