As the skin ages, it changes in firmness, tone and texture. Loss of collagen and elastin result in thinner, looser skin, and sun damage can leave behind hyperpigmentation, sun spots and other tone concerns. One of the most dramatic ways to obtain more youthful skin without surgery is laser facial skin resurfacing, one of our advanced skin treatments at RIVKIN Aesthetics in Los Angeles.
Benefits of CO2 Laser Treatment
There are many laser skin treatments for fighting lines, wrinkles and skin discolorations. Laser technology offers incredible benefits for cosmetic skin treatments, but few have the extreme results as laser skin resurfacing. With a CO2 laser, the top layer of skin cells is removed to reveal the new skin underneath. This process also stimulates collagen production as the body begins to repair the skin. The results can be amazing – patients can look years younger with just one treatment, with the following benefits:
- Diminish lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes and mouth
- Reduce pore size
- Fade discolorations and pigmentation
- Improve skin firmness and elasticity
- Improve overall youthfulness of skin
The results of laser facial skin resurfacing increase in the weeks and months after the treatment. It can take up to six months for the full effect to be realized, but most people notice an improvement in their skin as soon as it heals.
While laser skin resurfacing comes with many benefits, it does require some downtime and is not right for every patient. The top layer of skin is removed with the treatment, the skin will be red and crusty for a few days and redness will persist for about two weeks. However, this one 60-minute procedure can turn back time on the age of your skin, and our patients love the results of their laser skin resurfacing treatment.
If you want to look years younger without plastic surgery, laser facial skin resurfacing is one of the most effective options available. To learn more about all our cosmetic skin treatments at RIVKIN Aesthetics, contact our clinic in Los Angeles to schedule your consultation.
