HOW DOES THE TREATMENT WORK?
The laser light is absorbed by the water in the skin cells, causing the instantaneous vaporization of the cell. As the laser passes across the skin, a small amount of tissue is removed at a time, allowing for the physician to treat only as deeply as needed. Our doctors are trained to know the best way to use this laser to get you the absolute best results possible.

If sun exposure is unavoidable, cover treated area with protective clothing and SPF 35 or higher. Do not go to the tanning salon or do any indoor tanning until cleared by the doctor to do so
How Does it work?
The CO2 Laser is an excellent treatment for deep lines and wrinkles. It tightens and smooths skin by stimulating collagen growth with laser energy. This improves skin texture and tone, while smoothing lines and wrinkles. This treatment is great for face wrinkles and lines around the eyes, cheeks and mouth. By smoothing the skin and producing more collagen it also can dramatically improve the skin of those suffering from acne. It can be used for the hands and chest.
The CO2 laser is a fractionated laser that applies tiny columns of laser energy into the skin of the face and neck to tighten and smooth the skin. This precision laser makes thousands of microscopic perforations which stimulates new collagen to grow.
The new collagen improves your skin texture and tone to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The skin around each of these perforations remains intact, which allows the skin to heal from the edge of these holes very rapidly.
What should I expect?
Treatments may take 1-2 hours depending on the area. Local and topical anesthesia is used so the treatment is relatively comfortable. The skin feels like a sunburn for a day or two and is red and scaly with some swelling for 7-10 days.
Most people will take off some time from work, but some choose to return to work even the next day! Makeup can be applied on about day 5 which can help to cover up the redness. Although you will see immediate improvement, the skin will continue to tighten over about 4-6 months after treatment!
What is Microneedling?
Micro-needling creates a pattern of micro channels in the treatment area. These micro channels significantly increase the production of collagen and elastin to leave the skin smoother, fresher, and more uniform. It is done with a special device to ensure the consistency. Micro channels also enhance the skin’s ability to absorb most advanced medical grade topical agents such as PRP at Revive Face, Body and Skin.
