What are the Benefits of CO2 Lasers?

CO2 laser resurfacing can have profound and long lasting effects on the facial skin. This procedure is most commonly used to diminish aging-related lines and wrinkles, but it can also be used to treat facial scars or uneven pigmentation. The procedure will generally be completed in one sitting, and take between 30 minutes and 2 hours, depending on the surface area being treated. The patients we’ve treated with this procedure have been extremely pleased, as this relatively quick procedure yields dramatic results.

Laser Resurfacing is Highly Effective

Laser resurfacing is great for eliminating deep lines and wrinkles that may not be affected by other similar treatments. Laser resurfacing is so effective because it removes deeper layers of damaged skin, and stimulates the growth of healthy new skin.

The procedure can be applied to the entire face or certain parts of it. A resurfacing of the entire face will result in an overall more youthful appearance, and brighter and even skin-tone. However, it is not uncommon to only treat wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.

Laser resurfacing is also effective in treating scars, and is frequently used to treat acne scars. The procedure can be highly effective in permanently reducing their depth and severity. As skin is highly sensitive to the sun, extreme care should be taken following the procedure. After a few months, you can enjoy the benefits of the treatment where the skin should be looking better than ever.

Benefits are Long-lasting

The positive effects of C02 laser resurfacing are generally quite significant and can be permanent. If one has a resurfacing treatment that eliminates lines, those lines are gone for good. However, new lines can form as the normal effects of aging progress. C02 laser resurfacing is best viewed as a ‘reset’ of the effects of aging. If aging, acne, or too much time in the sun has left your face with blotches, scars, wrinkles or lines, laser skin resurfacing may help your skin.


As with other types of procedures, benefits will be maximized by taking care of newly formed skin layers – this means wearing adequate sun protection, and avoiding unhealthy behaviors such as smoking. The procedure provides skin smoothing as well as skin tightening with relatively long-lasting improvements in skin quality and texture. The patients who choose to get the laser resurfacing procedure can expect to enjoy the benefits of the procedure for many years following the treatment.

The effects of laser resurfacing will also be permanent for many types of acne scarring, and indentations in particular. As always, it is best to consult a cosmetic medicine professional at Fairview Cosmetic Surgery in order to understand the best course of action given your particular skin. Not all the candidates are eligible for the procedure they seek. Only a certified specialist can advise you and help you plan the treatment so that you are set up for success.


Many people have thought about improving imperfections in their skin, but have been hesitant to undergo a procedure because they were concerned about the effectiveness and permanence of available procedures. This is no longer a concern with advent of CO2 skin resurfacing.
