CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

If you are tired of looking in the mirror and seeing scars or sun-damaged skin looking back at you, CO2 laser skin resurfacing could be just the thing you need. Here at Vida Wellness & Beauty, we are delighted to offer this treatment for our clients. Based in Mexico, our clinic is not only popular with locals but those traveling from the USA who are looking for affordable treatment of the highest standard (while also getting a relaxing vacation in the process!) 

So, what can you expect from CO2 laser skin resurfacing and why do we recommend this treatment so much?

All you need to know about CO2 laser skin resurfacing

This is one of the latest advancements that has been made in the world of non-surgical treatments for skin rejuvenation. It is also commonly referred to as pixelated carbon dioxide laser treatment or fractional CO2 laser treatment. This type of laser has the longest wavelength when compared with all of the other options on the market at the moment. Not only this but unlike a lot of other lasers, it can be used safely on darker skin so long as the correct adjustments are made to the settings. With the experience that we have, you have nothing to worry about in this regard.

What sort of conditions are treated?

There are many different types of conditions that are treated with CO2 laser skin resurfacing. This includes the following:

  • Traumatic scars
  • Traumatic scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Acne scars
  • Blotchiness
  • Wrinkles
  • Textural skin changes
  • Sun damage

These lasers are very effective when it comes to treating deeper wrinkles. A lot of the other treatments on the market today will only help with very fine and surface-level wrinkles, but this is not something that you need to worry about when you go for CO2 laser skin resurfacing. 

The laser can be used around the mouth area, as well as on the delicate skin on your eyelid. It is also very effective for precancerous growth and sun damage too. 

It can also be used on your legs, arms, chest, blotchiness on the neck, wrinkles, and texture. It should only be done by professionals though, as complications can happen if not, and this is why you should always rely on the team at Vida, as we have many years of experience and all of the necessary qualifications.

How CO2 laser skin resurfacing works

Now that you know about the benefits of this treatment and who it is suited for, let’s take a look at how it works. With CO2 laser skin resurfacing, CO2 fractionates and laser beams are taken, and then that beam is pixelated into thousands of small, little light shafts. These tiny light shafts will then penetrate into your skin’s deeper layers. The skin will then repair the small shafts and it will do this as it pushes out the skin that is damaged and replaces it with new skin instead. The “collateral” heat damage also has the benefit of helping to promote collagen growth. All of this is done while ensuring that the rest of the skin remains untouched and is not damaged. Moreover, this treatment is compatible with a lot of other treatments as well. While they often are not done on the same day, there is nothing stopping you from getting other treatments on your skin.
