If self-care is at the top of your list of resolutions for this year, what better way to start than with laser skin resurfacing? Our fractional CO2 laser can help you put your best face forward, no matter your skincare goals. Below, we share some of our favorite laser skin resurfacing before and after photos to help inspire your own transformation.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Benefits
Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing uses carbon dioxide laser technology to target and improve your skin’s appearance. The treatment is particularly known for several benefits, including:
- Smoothing fine lines and wrinkles
- Stimulating collagen and skin regeneration for reduced scarring
- Treating pigmentation issues for a more uniform skin tone
- Enhancing skin elasticity and firmness for tighter skin
- Reducing redness and inflammation
- Improving textural concerns
In addition, fractional CO2 lasers are celebrated for their precisely controlled and customized treatments, and remarkable, long-lasting results. Plus, they can help you get a little more from your facial plastic surgery procedure.
In this first set of transformation photos, we have a 62-year-old patient who underwent laser skin resurfacing as a complement to a facelift, brow lift, and fat transfer. Right away, you can see a much brighter and more even complexion and how the combination of surgical and nonsurgical modalities has softened the lines on her face and created firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Healing Process
Following your treatment, your skin will likely have some redness, crusting, and peeling. While these effects can last up to 3 weeks as the old cells give way to the new, most patients only need 3 to 5 days of ‘social downtime’ before they are back to their normal routines. Many patients can easily camouflage any residual redness with makeup after a few days. Learn more about what to expect during your recovery process.
This next example shows a woman in her mid-50s who chose to enhance her surgical procedures (facelift, brow lift, fat transfer, and upper eyelid surgery) with laser skin resurfacing. Following her recovery period, she more even coloration and improved texture with a healthy, vibrant glow to match her new look.
What Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Cost?
Laser skin resurfacing at Youthful Reflections is priced based on the extent of the procedure, the size of the treatment areas, and whether the procedure is being done on its own or in concert with other treatments. We will provide you with a personalized quote at your consultation and offer a variety of financing options for qualified patients.
This next patient already had quite a youthful appearance at the age of 49. However, she saw laser skin resurfacing and facial plastic surgery as an investment worth making to age even more gracefully in the years to come. Her results showcase her refreshed look and how well the laser treatment evened her coloration and unlocked her natural radiance.
