C02 Laser Skin Resurfacing Q & A

YCO Facial Plastic Surgery

What is CO2 laser skin resurfacing?

CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatments improve both the surface and deeper layers of your skin to minimize wrinkles and reduce the appearance of acne scars, age spots, and sun damage, so all you see is younger, smoother skin.

A CO2 laser uses carbon dioxide (CO2) to pinpoint damaged layers and remove them to reveal a fresh, new layer of undamaged skin. CO2 laser treatments are effective at treating deep lines and wrinkles on your face.

The UltraPulse® Active FX™ technology that Dr. Yco uses penetrates deeper than any other ablative CO2 laser for the best results. This advanced laser technology allows Dr. Yco to precisely treat areas of your skin for the most dramatic, noticeable results without invasive surgery.

How does CO2 laser skin resurfacing work?

Dr. Yco uses the UltraPulse CO2 laser technology to deliver fractional, or very short pulses, of light energy called “ultrapulse” energy.

The advantage of ultrapulse technology is that it can remove thin layers of damaged skin with minimal heat damage to the surrounding tissue. As a result, you get all the benefits of precision skin resurfacing without excess heat on the surface of your skin.

What are the benefits of CO2 laser skin resurfacing?

By choosing a CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment, your skin becomes rejuvenated, leaving you with a flawless appearance. The CO2 laser eliminates imperfections, scars, and other blemishes while also tightening your skin. You’ll see a more even skin tone and pigmentation after the treatment.

Other benefits include:

  • Correction of deep lines and wrinkles
  • Effective treatment for sun damage and precancerous spots
  • Removal of benign lesions
  • Effective results without surgery
  • Single treatment provides visible results
  • Minimal downtime

Am I a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing?

Dr. Yco scrutinizes your skin to determine if you’re a good candidate for CO2 laser skin resurfacing with the UltraPulse laser. Typically, you’re a good candidate for this type of treatment if you have significant lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, or other types of uneven pigmentation.
