Laser resurfacing treatments make use of light technology and modern lasers to target areas of the skin that have been affected by wrinkles, scars, blemishes and other irregularities to create a smooth, youthful surface. The laser directs a concentrated, pulsating beam of light at the problem areas of the skin to precisely take out damaged layers of skin, revealing new, unaffected skin underneath.
Those who are curious about before and after CO2 laser resurfacing results can find a plethora of positive testimonials from patients who have enjoyed the results that only laser resurfacing treatments can provide when administered by Dr. Seiger at the Skin and Vein Center. Before undergoing a CO2 laser resurfacing treatment, start by consulting a Dr. Seiger to help you determine if you’re a good candidate for treatment. Dr. Seiger has years of experience providing laser skin resurfacing procedures. During your consultation, he will discuss your medical history, current health, and the results you’re hoping to achieve.
CO2 laser resurfacing has been used to treat all kinds of skin issues including enlarged oil glands that tend to show up on the nose, scars, warts, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, sun damage, and more. Good candidates for laser resurfacing are those who have shallow acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, or those who may have had a facelift but didn’t see the full results that they hoped for. Those with very dark skin may not be the best candidates as some discoloration issues may be a problem. Stretch marks cannot be treated by CO2 laser resurfacing.
The laser resurfacing process is an outpatient procedure that generally takes no more than 45 minutes to two hours depending on how much of the face is being treated. Some patients may require no more than one session to see results while others will require several treatments spread over the course of many months.
A buildup of skin damage – sun damage, age spots, scars and more – can leave the skin’s surface looking tired and worn. But just underneath, new, healthy skin is waiting to shine! At the Skin and Vein Center, Dr. Seiger gives his patients a revitalized, youthful look through expert application of CO2 laser resurfacing and other procedures.
