Laser Facial Resurfacing CO2

SmartXide DOT LaserWith the help of the SmartXide DOT Laser in Mexico, we can effectively treat everything from small wrinkles to deep wrinkles, sun damage, scars, uneven skin tone and texture, crepiness, and looseness. This carbon dioxide laser is designed to accurately eliminate outer layers of damaged skin, encouraging the regeneration of healthy skin underneath.

Preparation:
You should not go out in the sun and get tanned before your laser facial resurfacing CO2 treatment. For the four weeks preceding your procedure, you should regularly apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen.

Avoid taking any medications that could make you more sensitive to the sun (such as doxycycline or minocycline) for at least three days before your treatment. Eating and drinking properly before your treatment can help keep avoid dehydration.

Candidates:
If you wish to address sun damage, wrinkles, scars, warts, birthmarks, and other skin issues with minimal downtime, SmartXide DOT Laser facial resurfacing with CO2 may be ideal for you.

For people with certain health problems, SmartXide DOT Laser might not be an ideal option. People who are currently taking Accutane should not get a CO2 laser treatment.

People who have had trouble healing or have had scarring issues in the past, as well as people with bleeding disorders, are not good candidates. The CO2 laser is not used on women who are pregnant or nursing.

Procedure:
Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles are removed using carbon dioxide (CO2) that resurfaces several layers of damaged skin. These procedures also help to soften lines around the eyes and mouth and minimize facial scars and unevenly pigmented areas.

Duration:
The procedure takes approximately one hour – depending on the area to be treated. Some cases may require more than one session – six at the most.

Anesthesia:
A topical anesthesia is used.

Inpatient/Outpatient:
This is an outpatient procedure.

Possible Side Effects:
Temporary swelling of the resurfaced area along with mild discomfort, lightening or darkening of treated skin (hypo/hyper-pigmentation), acute sun sensitivity and/or increased sensitivity to makeup and skin care products. A pinkness or redness of the skin may persist for up to 2 months.

Risks:
Burns or injuries caused by the laser’s heat, scarring, abnormal changes in skin color, flare-up of viral infections (cold sores) and rarely, other infections.

Recovery:
The patient may return to work after approximately one week. More strenuous activities may be resumed after two weeks. Complete fading of redness can take up to two months. The patient should avoid ultraviolet light exposure for three to six months. The use of sunblocks that contain UVA and UVB protection is very helpful and strongly recommended.

Results:
Long lasting, but this procedure does not stop the aging process. New wrinkles and expression lines may form as the skin continues to age.
