The summer months can do more harm to our skin than many people realize. We’re out in the sun more, we might not hydrate as well as we should, and we might not even eat the best diet at times. All of these things can lead to skin damage or skin that needs a little makeover. Luckily, with laser skin resurfacing, you can get your skin back on track and look great in no time. Here are some of the factors to consider before getting a CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment.

What Is The Process Of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a simple process, but you must ensure a qualified and trained professional administers your treatment. Your medical professional will send a laser beam deep through your skin’s layers. This creates tiny columns, similar to a polka dot print, in your skin. Once this process occurs, your body will naturally repair those columns by forcing out old skin and replacing it with new skin. None of your surrounding skin is impacted since the laser is targeting only the affected areas.

The best part about a fractional CO2 laser treatment is the healing process involves activating the stem cells in your skin. It also boosts your body’s natural elastin and collagen production to continue making your skin look more youthful for several weeks and months following your treatment.

Can Anyone Get A Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment?

Most people qualify for a fractional CO2 laser treatment no matter their skin type. However, anyone who has an immune system disorder should consider not getting treated. Women who are breastfeeding or are pregnant should not get a CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment either. Your medical professional will provide you with a free consultation before proceeding with any treatment to ensure the procedure will be safe for you.

Preparation And Post-Care Tips For Laser Skin Resurfacing

Your medical professional will provide you with guidance on how to care for your skin in advance of your laser skin resurfacing treatment. However, you should generally stay out of direct sunlight for a few weeks before your treatment. And any microdermabrasion treatments, waxing, or other types of skin care should not continue under the direction of your medical professional. Clients should plan on taking the rest of the day off of work so they can rest at home and properly apply ice packs to the treated areas as needed.

While most people don’t experience any pain, some discomfort can occur during and after the treatment. Most of the time Tylenol will help clients manage pain effectively. Redness and some swelling could occur, but it typically subsides in the days or weeks following the treatment. Talk to your medical professional about any skincare products, moisturizers, sunscreen, or other products you use to ensure they won’t cause any skin irritations.

Results Can Last For Years With Proper Care

A single fractional CO2 laser treatment can make a big difference in your skin’s feel and appearance. However, you can have an indefinite number of treatments spaced out 4-6 months apart to keep the results going. This is often a personal preference and if you simply want to get rid of some damaged skin for the summer, then a single treatment can work fine. As long as you take good care of your skin after the treatment, then you can maximize your results.
