The beauty of CO2 laser skin resurfacing

Reversing skin damage caused by the sun is one of the most common concerns shared by both women and men. We canaries are especially prone to sun exposure, and even people who apply sunscreen more frequently can expect the appearance of their skin to be affected due to the intensity of the sun in our Archipelago. Laser skin resurfacing offered at our Clinic in Gran Canaria can noticeably improve sun-damaged skin.

What does the CO2 Laser consist of?

skin rejuvenation lasers they target the water molecules in the dermis. By heating those molecules, we can trigger the body's healing process for extensive repair and collagen production. It's like tricking the body into creating smoother skin.

Instead of removing the entire surface of the skin like traditional CO2 lasers, the fractional CO2 laser emits small columns of laser energy to produce thousands of microscopic skin lesions, leaving the skin untreated between the spots. The laser energy initiates the skin's natural healing processes to produce new tissue and collagen. Because recovery of treated tissue occurs at the expense of healthy tissue, discomfort and healing time are reduced compared to traditional CO2 lasers.

En Clínica del Carmen We use laser skin resurfacing to address a variety of concerns, including:

  • Lines, folds and wrinkles.
  • Rough skin texture.
  • Sun spots and age spots (keratosis).
  • flaccid skin
  • Acne scars and surgical scars.
  • Stretch marks.

What is the best time for fractional CO2 laser?

In the Canary Islands most of the year is sunny, and it is better to avoid direct exposure to the sun before and after a laser treatment. That can be very difficult to do during the longest days of spring and summer. And for active people, staying home during the summer can be next to impossible. That's why it's beneficial to schedule your laser skin resurfacing treatments for the fall and winter. We are entering the perfect season of the year for it!

How many sessions are needed?

Non-ablative fractional lasers that do not require downtime have the trade-off of requiring multiple treatment sessions. They penetrate the skin in a pixelated pattern. If you are curious about laser skin rejuvenation and other skin treatments, such as peels, IPL, microdermabrasion, etc, we can assess your case to offer you the options that best suit your needs.
