SmartSkin™ C02 Skin Restoration

Have years of exposure to the sun left noticeable damage to your skin? This is not uncommon for many adults, but now, its visible signs can be erased thanks to laser technology.

That’s right – new improvements to laser skin rejuvenation technology have provided physicians with the ability to reduce and remove signs of sun damage and aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots and reducing the size of large pores.

At Capital Skin, we offer the SmartSkin™ fractional CO2 laser procedure, a skin rejuvenation treatment proven to be highly effective for patients with minimal, moderate and severe sun-damaged skin. This fractional laser resurfacing procedure provides the most advanced level of laser treatment currently available anywhere.

Before and After - SmartSkin CO2 Treatment

The SmartSkin™ CO2 Procedure

At Capital Skin, the highly effective results of the SmartSkin CO2 fractional laser are achieved through the application of a series of tiny pulses of laser energy focused on the areas of skin being treated. These pulses remove the damaged skin caused by years of sun exposure. The moderate damage cause by the laser stimulates the body’s healing processes, causing new skin cell formation. These new skin cells produce much greater levels of both collagen and elastin in comparison to the older and damaged skin cells that have been removed. This is essentially how the rejuvenation process is achieved.

To minimize any discomfort during the procedure, a topical anesthetic is applied, as well as nerve blocks and mild sedation. You can expect to feel heat, tingling and the sensation of slight sunburn as the laser moves across your face.

SmartSkin™ CO2 Recovery and Results

Recovery time from this procedure is variable depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment you decide upon. The average recovery time is approximately 4-5 days. Our clients are typically able to apply makeup 5 days after a treatment.

Excellent results can be seen as the skin heals. However, the best results are generally seen 3 to 5 months later and can last for several years. Results depend on the level of your treatment. Most patients are highly satisfied with one to two treatments. The Doctor will work with you to develop a SmartSkin Fractional CO2 laser treatment plan in order to achieve your goals.
