Why we love our CO2 laser!

One of the most powerful, proven tools in the arsenal of anti-aging skincare has long been laser skin resurfacing. Traditionally, these treatments produced impressive results, but patients could expect a long and often arduous recovery time. Now, the stellar benefits of laser skin resurfacing are attainable with a much shorter window of recovery than either a traditional facelift or fully ablative laser treatment.

Research tells us that after the age of 20, collagen production slows by 1% each year. That slow decline, combined with the impact of exposure to UV radiation (can you say sunburn?!) results in brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and the onset of that leathery look and feel to the skin. Lewisville Laser’s SmartSkin+ Laser System can address all of these issues and deliver impressive, lasting results. And SmartSkin+ can be used not just on the face, but on the neck, décolletage, and hands as well.

Dr. Summer can custom-design a non-ablative laser treatment tailored specifically to your unique skin type and desired outcome. Our system uses a fractional CO2 laser, capable of delivering tiny pulses of laser energy deep into the skin. The laser energy triggers the body’s own natural healing processes, stimulating collagen and elastin production and boosting the skin’s support structure. Dull, damaged cells are sloughed off and new cell production ramps up. As skin heals from within, patients can expect a smoother, more even complexion.

This in-office procedure takes about 30 minutes, and patients can expect 3-4 days of downtime, although makeup can be applied to tone down redness after 24 hours. Best of all, your beautiful results can last for years when combined with judicious use of sunscreen and proper skin care.
