Our bespoke protocol is completely customized to your skin and your desired results. Before your treatment, we may advise you to begin taking an antibiotic or antiviral medication for a certain amount of time to help prevent post-treatment complications.
When you come in for the procedure, we begin by numbing the treatment area for your comfort. We may incorporate Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), a substance derived from your blood that stimulates healing, recovery, and a proliferation of growth factors. When used with eCO2 laser treatment, it can shorten recovery time and minimize side effects from ablative treatment.
Protective eyewear is provided to shield your eyes from the laser light. The laser device is customized to specific settings appropriate for the thickness of your skin and the area being treated. We pass or move the device over those areas. Many patients report a stinging or warm sensation, but that is tolerable. After your treatment is complete, PRP is applied over the treated area to aid in healing and recovery.
Light-Emitting Diode (LED) therapy is a new, proven method to accelerate the healing process after the ablative procedure. Various wavelengths of light are used to reduce inflammation and promote anti-aging effects. LED therapy is safe for all skin types. Following treatment with the eCO2 laser, we use LED to decrease downtime, reduce pain and discomfort, and minimize scabs and swelling. Treatment only takes about 30 minutes. After we are done, we will provide you with thorough aftercare instructions. So, you can have an optimal healing and recovery experience.
In the first couple of days after your treatment, your skin may feel sunburnt with some swelling and red discoloration. You will need to apply an ointment to the skin and change it each day to lock in moisture and promote healing. After a few days, you will likely experience peeling in the treatment area, revealing fresher and more youthful-looking skin beneath. Patients may experience burning, itching, swelling, or more severe side effects, which we will discuss before treatment, along with your aftercare designed to minimize these risks.
While some of the treatment effects become noticeable shortly after treatment as skin peels away, the tightening and firming effects often take weeks to months to be visible. It takes time for your skin’s collagen and elastin production to ramp up and become noticeable. Patients can expect to maintain their excellent results, at which point touch-up treatments may be performed.
Many patients achieve their desired results with just one treatment. Patients with more severe issues such as deep acne scars may achieve optimal results with multiple treatment sessions.
