Managing Healthy Skin

If you’re looking for new and improved ways to have youthful, glowing skin, you’re in the right place! At Take Shape Plastic Surgery, aesthetics is what we do, and that includes using state-of-the-art equipment for cosmetic procedures. One of the most popular items out there right now is the C02 Laser. The C02 Laser is short for the Carbon Dioxide Fractional Laser. Now, you might be wondering what all that entails. Essentially, the machine aids in removing layers of skin in order to make room for new skin cells to come through. This method helps with:

  • Age Spots
  • Sun Freckles
  • Liver Spots
  • Fine Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Scarring
  • Uneven Skin colors
  • & More

The Benefits

One of the most significant benefits of using a C02 Laser is that it's great for those who are looking to have one session and be done. Lasers often scare people away because of the countless sessions it takes to see a result. With the C02 Laser, one treatment is like having numerous treatments at once. The downside is that the healing process can be almost a week to two weeks. However, if you have the time, it's worth the extra time off of work and activities. The additional healing time can act as a mini vacation, giving you time to work on computer items, things around the house, and so much more. By the time you step back out into the world, people will be wondering what skincare routine you’re using looking that good!

The laser is an in-office procedure, though there are medications that are offered before and after to ensure that the healing process goes smoothly. If you're wondering about the pain levels after the treatment, you can rest at ease knowing that many people describe the pain as a bad sunburn. Fortunately, there are plenty of ointments to apply, like a sunburn, that can relieve some of the stings.
There are numerous reasons for people to look into the C02 Laser, but most of the patients tend to have heavily wrinkled skin, excessive sagging, uneven pigmentation, age spots, and more. The procedure is done by disturbing some areas of the skin and leaving others intact to help the healing process. The intact layers act as reinforcement for the sections that are fresh, new, and rejuvenating.
