Laser Skin Resurfacing Q & A


Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing can be the solution to making your skin look younger if you suffer from blotchy skin due to overexposure to the sun as well as scars, wrinkles or lines.  Laser skin resurfacing may help your skin look younger and healthier by removing the skin layer by layer with precision.

Dr. Bush stays on the cutting-edge of facial rejuvenation treatments to create beautiful results for each patient. Your skin reveals your age most of the time if you’re not careful to care for it properly with the most beneficial skin care treatments. During your consultation for the fractional CO2 laser treatment, Dr. Bush will run a multi-faceted skin screening to measure the depth of damage before recommending the best possible treatment. We use non-ablative, fractionated CO2 laser treatments. During your consultation, you will learn why non-ablative laser treatments are best and the particular beneficial aspects of CO2 laser treatments.

Skin Resurfacing with Fractional CO2 Laser

A fractional C02 laser treatment takes approximately 45 minutes to complete and it’s performed right in a treatment room with Dr. Bush. It is a safe, non-ablative laser skin procedure that resurfaces damaged skin to uncover your youthful skin that has been hiding beneath an unhealthy layer.

Fractionated CO2 Laser Application

A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin before laser application and Dr. Bush will do so to make sure you are as comfortable as possible. You are required to wear protective eyewear during this fractionated laser treatment, and Dr. Bush will provide you with goggles for this purpose.

As the laser is applied to the surface of the skin, it works well beneath what is visible. This will gradually improve the firmness of the skin as well as improve any volume loss, as collagen and other proteins become refreshed and plump beneath the surface. Recovery time after this treatment is from four to seven days.

Benefits of Fractional CO2 Laser:

  • Offers smoother, fresher looking skin
  • Reduces wrinkles around the eyes
  • Improves tone and texture
  • Reduces the overall appearance of acne scars and softens surgical scars
  • Firms and creates noticeable improvement in elasticity

Fractional CO2 laser treatment is excellent for areas like your face, neck, chest, arms, legs and back. It also helps to keep you looking and feeling fabulous. Call Dr. Ronald B. Bush to schedule your appointment for fractional CO2 laser today!
