The effects of sun damage and environmental toxins can accumulate in our skin over time, contributing to how early and significantly we show signs of aging. Skin is slower to repair itself, so we lose firmness, and our skin becomes lax. We produce fine lines and wrinkles, develop age spots, and our skin’s tone and texture suffers. With Balanced Aesthetics Medspa’s CO2 Skin Resurfacing treatment, we can hit the reset button on your skin’s age, restoring your youthful radiance.
If you’re suffering from the effects of accumulated environmental and sun damage, and your skin doesn’t look as young as you feel it should, then CO2 skin resurfacing could be the treatment for you. Schedule a comprehensive consultation at Balanced Aesthetics Medspa to get started creating your treatment plan. Let your provider know your medical history, as well as any medications (including topical) you’ve taken in the past 30-days or any facial treatments you’ve had in the previous 2-4 weeks.
CO2 skin resurfacing has been proven to produce remarkable results after a single treatment, with deep tissue renewal and new collagen fiber production for a firmer, smoother, clearer complexion than before. It may take up to 4 weeks for complete healing, and your improvements will continue to accumulate for 3-6 months following your last treatment. Wrinkles and scars are diminished, age spots and sun damage are reversed, and your skin is restored to its youthful beauty.
Older CO2 skin resurfacing treatments used to remove the whole surface of your skin, whether it was damaged or not. Today’s advanced technology takes a fractionated approach, creating tiny micro-injuries to only some of the skin. The unaffected portion of skin—the bridges between micro-injuries—helps facilitate faster healing. Skin cells are entirely replaced to repair the damage caused by the sun, environment, and time.
CO2 skin resurfacing:
Your treatment in the Balanced Aesthetics comfortable treatment rooms begins with a thorough cleansing of your skin and the application of topical anesthetic so you’re comfortable. When you’re ready, the device is moved across your skin in controlled movements to ensure complete coverage without overlap. Your procedure should last 1-2 hours, depending on the size of your treatment area. We typically recommend 1-3 treatments scheduled 5-8 weeks apart for your results to reach your cosmetic goals.
You may experience mild discomfort following your procedure, which can be controlled by over-the-counter medication or cold compresses. Some crusting or scabbing is normal and will subside 7-14 days after your session, and redness is normal for up to 1 month. Be sure to follow all aftercare instructions to minimize the risks of complications and contact your provider if difficulty in healing occurs.
