During the procedure, the dermis is penetrated and a small wound is created. This help stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. Eventually, the damage cells will be replaced with fresh, healthy ones. Because only a small portion of the skin is damaged and the epidermis is left intact, the skin is able to repair itself much faster.
There are three types of CO2 lasers. The type that Dr. Buka chooses is dependent upon the individual. He will evaluate your skin and determine the type of laser that produces the best results. Topical anesthetic is applied prior to this procedure, which ensures that you will not experience any pain during this treatment.
The CO2 laser procedure can be completed in just 30 minutes. The skin may appear swollen and red once the skin regenerates new cells and begins to heal. Dr. Buka will educate you on how to properly care for your skin after you get this treatment.
